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.
