Three flavors of Idolm@ster for the PSP captured in one trailer

Namco Bandai is pulling a Pokemon-like strategy with the Idolm@ster franchise. Three Idolm@ster SP games with three different sets of idols to manage are coming to Japan this winter. You get to choose if you want to manage Perfect Sun, Wandering Star or Missing Moon.

 

The preview video doesn’t delve into specific details about each version. It’s more like a proof of concept video demonstrating you can have a similar Idolm@ster experience on the PSP minus  downloadable content. Maybe minus downloadable content. The other Idolm@ster console games “printed money” by selling costumes and songs over the Xbox Live Marketplace. I wonder if Namco Bandai is exploring selling additional content on the Japanese PlayStation Store.

  • matty

    I like how they keep leaving out Miki.

  • TOLLMASTER

    As soon as the image finally loaded of the three versions, my reaction was “why would anyone pick anything other than the Missing Moon pack?”

    Why do I care about this? What’s wrong with me? ;_;

    @Matty – Maybe Namco is going to make a game just for her?

    @TOLLMASTER – And here I was about to pick up Perfect Sun! Just kidding. I think more people are going to care about this because the Idolm@ster is finally accessible without buying a Japanese Xbox 360.

    Day one purchase for all of them. Really. It’s going to suck if they all come out on the same day. >_>.

    @Matty – Miki’s in Missing Moon – only thing is that she’s part of the rival production group 961 Productions.

    Sweet! I can finally stumble and bumble my way to managing an idol instead of buying a Japanese 360. I’ll be picking up Wandering Star for Iori Minase
