Three flavors of the Idolm@ster will take stage on the PSP later this month. Since those games are based on the original arcade game Namco Bandai must have something else Idolm@ster in development. How about taking the series to the DS?
This is, in all honesty, a wild guess. However, it’s the only thing that neatly fits with three trademarks registered by Namco Bandai on Japan’s trademark database. On December 5th they reserved the rights for Dearly Stars, Dressing Sweet, and Dream Symphony for use with video games. The nature of the names suggest the three trademarks are linked. Also, they can be abbreviated to “DS” and publishers still have a thing about naming Nintendo DS software something DS.
My guess is these are going to be subtitles for upcoming Idolm@ster games. What do you think they will be used for?
