SoniPro 3DS Game Has You Training Super Sonico To Be An Idol

By Ishaan . July 28, 2013 . 12:30pm

Nitroplus announced SoniPro (which stands for Super Sonico in Production) for the Nintendo 3DS at the summer 2013 Wonder Festival this weekend. The title is an idol-producing game and is being developed by Imageepoch. Here’s a first trailer:

 

 

SoniPro stars Super Sonico, who is the mascot of an annual festival held by Nitroplus, called Nitro Super Sonico. While most know Nitroplus primarily as a producer of visual novels, these music festivals are the other thing they’re known for.

 

In SoniPro, you help Super Sonico train as an idol as her producer. It looks to be quite the ambitious production as Imageepoch and Nitroplus say the game won’t be out until winter 2014. SoniPro will have a completely original scenario, and Imageepoch are developing the game in stereoscopic 3D.

 

Also announced at WonderFes was More! SoniComi, a PlayStation 3 version of the 2011 SoniComi game for PC, with updated visuals.

    At first I was like “Wow I really love this artwork”
    and then I was “LOOK AT THESE PROMINENT BOOBS”

    Well ok, I have to admit the 3D-model looks well-done.

    Anyway, I don’t think this is the kind of game we’ll see outside of Japan.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Nitro+ has a working relationship with Peter Payne and JAST. They want their adult products to come over, so I wouldn’t put it outside the realm of the possible,

      • Malon

        When you say “adult products”, do you mean “X rated products” ?
        Because it doesn’t look like this game is going to be an eroge at all.

        • M’iau M’iaut

          Yes i mean if they brought over Demonbane and Saya, I would think this Sonico game would be a possible. JAST has even considered console titles in the past, but I’d suspect any release would come from a more recognized name.

    • Chaos_Knight

      Rule 34, do your thing!

      • Ni ~UNREAL BLACK THINGS~

        34 Department already has theirs on eyes Sonico for years

        • Spider-Man

          Gonna do some research now.

    • DyLaN

      I haven’t seen a idol sim gotten localized yet… (AFAIK) So I’m not positive abt it…

  • Highasthesky

    I just found out about her in super heroine chronicles, and now she has a game.

    • http://simplephilistine.wordpress.com/ Arla

      Sonico has been around for years.

      • Highasthesky

        That’s nice, but like i said, i just found out about her.

  • http://simplephilistine.wordpress.com/ Arla

    This is more appealing to me than the Vocaloid games to be honest. It’s not just Sonicos design but I actually liked the song. The digital voice thing just sounds awkward to me in Vocaloid but I know people love it.

    • DyLaN

      Some of them sounds pretty “real” though like ODDS & ENDS.

    • supervamp

      That’s because they use a real voice for her, just like in idol master games.
      She already has a sorta similar game on the pc but instead of being an idol she’s a model and your her photographer

  • Giany Rivera (ジャンニ)

    My Waifu has a new game! Yay!! ^_^

    • Spider-Man

      YOUR waifu?!

  • Eder García

    please come to north america, digital title at least

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    Hmm, was that U.S. flag swimsuit a hint of a possible localization? Please get localized, I…er I mean my 3DS wants Sonico =^_^=

  • biskmater

    Hmm, I have seen her around plenty, but does anyone have anything on her personality?

  • antochi

    Considering how NoA even censored Tharja’s CG in that FE:A dlc, this has zero chance of ever getting localized.

    • http://www.senran-international.boards.net/ TwinTails

      Nintendo didn’t stop Code of Princess from coming over, nor do they actively censor non-Nintendo games on their systems anymore.

    • http://simplephilistine.wordpress.com/ Arla

      Because they censored Madworld and No More Heroes right?

      • http://www.jb2x.com/wordpress/ JB2X

        They didn’t publish those games. Just sayin’…

        • http://simplephilistine.wordpress.com/ Arla

          Obviously not but who in their right minds expects Nintendo to pick up SoniPro for localization and censor it? That’s stupid.

    • DyLaN

      Its just a butt…..

  • konsama

    The plot looks so good.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    localize plz!!!! I don’t want to be that guy

  • Go2hell66

    Too much plot

  • Dylan

    I might actually import the PS3 of her original game, only problem is the communication segments

  • Patrick Henry de Dios

    This has a huge plot. No wonder it is an ambitious project.

  • kroufonz

    it’s different stuff the PS3 version is enhanced PC port,

    making new 3DS game probably cheaper then making a vita game (atleast graphic wise)

  • J_Joestar

    Huge difference in install base numbers between the 3DS and Vita,

  • http://www.senran-international.boards.net/ TwinTails

    That’s because those games are still considered “niche”, most publishers just seem reluctant to localize games of this caliber in the most part.

  • J_Joestar

    source?

  • http://www.senran-international.boards.net/ TwinTails

    Because it still depends on the publisher or the caliber of the game. I doubt the “locked in a room” game would be a good idea as far as sales interest, in a way it’s not because of Nintendo’s influence however you try to claim it is.
