Portable [email protected] Pushed Back Three Weeks

By Spencer . December 18, 2008 . 7:19am


Idolmaster SP, the most import friendly version of the [email protected] games, won’t come out on January 22. Namco Bandai rescheduled all three versions for release on February 19 in Japan. The reason? Namco Bandai is using the extra time to build up enough stock to satisfy demand. Yeah, the [email protected] SP: Missing Moon, Wandering Star, and Perfect Sun are that hot.


Since the [email protected] SP games are for the region free PSP is anyone planning on importing them?

    I’m gonna import Perfect Sun, cause Makoto is my favorite. :D

    I will definitely be picking up the Wandering Star version (for Iori Minase since Rie Kugimiya is her voice actress, unless they changed it for the PSP version) when it comes out. I’ve been wanting to try out the game since I heard about it a few years ago. Hopefully, the voice acting is still intact in the PSP version.

    So what do you actually do in these games?

  • justinslot

    And why is this version more import-friendly? Is there some English translation in it?

  • Spencer

    @Douglas – Train idols.

    @justinslot – The other [email protected] games are region restricted on the Xbox 360 and since this is on the PSP anyone can pick it up.

  • Spekio

    It is more import friendly because it’s region free. As opposed to all the [email protected] games on XBox 360 that require a Japanese XBox to play.

  • Strike Man

    In other words, it’s more import-friendly since you’ll be able to play it without any sort of hardware or software modifications…but…without a good grasp of the Japanese language, you still won’t know what is going on half the time? Just how “import friendly” is the _gameplay_?

  • justinslot

    @spencer – Yeah, I figured that’s what you meant after I posted.

    @Strike Man – Wikipedia says these are rhythm games, so maybe the gameplay isn’t that text-dependent.
