      For most part, Project Jupiter are not available to play, since they form part of the storyline mode of idolm@ster 2.

        Oh i see, so you dont choose them, they just appear then :o

        • http://www.siliconera.com Melinda

          They basically play the role as your rivals in the second half of the game. They do a pretty good job of it too.

            I see, thanks for explaining that :D, they have gained a bit bad of a fame on the net, but i thought they were characters you could use on the story.
            If they are Rivals, then is not that much of a big deal

        I see. That clears up a lot of misconceptions then. I’m waiting for Azusa~

        • http://www.siliconera.com Melinda

          Azusa, Ami and Iori are also part of the im@s 2 storyline either, and consequently can’t be played (Directly anyway) in story mode. In the stage for you attachment though, they’re selectable.

          Project Jupiter members are not selectable at all in either story OR in Stage for you.

            Oh, there’s an expansion? Cool.. But since I don’t have a 360, I’m contempt with Idolmaster SP ^_^

          • http://www.siliconera.com Melinda

            There’s two parts to the game – the storyline mode where you take the idols on a career to stardom, or the stage for you mode, which is the PV mode.

    It’s a shame these games haven’t made it over to the states, they seem like they would be pretty fun to play. :<

    • HarryHodd

      Yeah pretty funny they are exclusive to the 360 and not coming over.

    • Chiupon

      aside from groping 14 year old girls, yes. :D

      Why don’t we send Namco 50k emails, should work for this if it worked for Tales

        Wait, let me search my pocket….

        Aw, i miss 49.999 e-mails

    Press X!

    Looks pretty interesting to play. What’s up with that one chick’s voice? Kinda sounds like a guy in a way. The way she talks reminds me of the VA for Kobayakawa Hideaki in Sengoku Basara 3.

    • http://www.siliconera.com Melinda

      Makoto has had a deep voice since she showed up in 2007, and she speaks with male pronouns, due to how she was brought up. If you’re a Japanese speaker, it’ll confuse the heck out of you, since essentially ‘She’s using the language wrong’.

      Quite deliberate to emphasize the fact she’s a tomboy though.

    • http://myfigurecollection.net/collection/ashgail Ashgail

      Luckily she grew her hair in Idolmaster 2. You should’ve seen her in the original Idolmaster..

    Just wondering, but why is Rorona standing behind a barrel?

    • http://www.siliconera.com Melinda

      Rorona learnt from the stalking master Sterk, of course.

      Actually, it’s a picture from Atelier Totori back when I did the playtest. I thought it was amusing enough to use, and besides, the odds of people having said picture would be fairly low.

        I think is pretty funny xD, i’m alreayd used for you to have that

    We may do a quick session. although the stream is temporarily offline due to a quick break. We may quickly finish on a good note, if not we’ll resume for more fun and games while we take our fine Siliconera geared team to greater heights and make them the top Idols in Japan, conquering one fan at a time.
