The Idolm@ster Channel on Sony’s PlayStation 3 has updated itself with two new pieces of content for the Idolm@ster Shiny TV. This means re-mastered, HD versions of songs from all the various versions and copies of the games that have been around for a while. (So many even we’ve found it hard to keep count and score.)

 

One is the third “Gravure for You!” pack, above, which has  themed packs such as winter and the beach where you’ll get to pose some of the idols such as Yukiho Hagiwara. The second, and far meatier, is the latest mini-album set 4 called “Chihaya Friends: Earnest”

 

Note that these albums will have overlap songs from previous mini-albums. What changes is which idol gets some extra stage time. In this case it’s Chihaya Kisaragi’s turn to shine. Awaited Prince, for instance, has been in all the previous mini-albums released as well.

 

The album comes with 6 songs to play and these are:

Both the Gravure pack and Mini-album will cost 1500 yen each (About US$15). The game is out now for the Sony PlayStation 3 via its channel.

    Pretty sure it’s Blue Bird (Aoi Tori) and not Blue Island. Although the kanji sure are similar.

    • Naryoril

      that would explain it, i was confused whether it’s a new song. Guys, you should leave the song names in their original, the people who care about im@s know their japanese names, and all (english) sources on the net also keep the names in japanese. It took me a while to realize that “When our eyes meet” is “Me ga au toki”

    Wait its on the u.s psn? or is it only on japan psn?

    • Tenetan

      JP PSN, thought not that hard to create a Account and grab it. Like I did, These games do not really require much to any Japanese skills to enjoy.

    Just Played this Today ~ Ah The Good Ol’ Rhythm Music Games, Seems Japan is the only Country in the Gaming Industry that still cares about the Genre . . .

      For the most part, though don’t forget that the DJMax Technika series is still being developed by a South Korea based developers :)
      Also is it just me or is the timing window huge compared to Project Diva?

    If I wasn’t already occupied I’d be playing this

  • Micrll

    Just loaded my Japanese PSN account up with some money for these packs. I plan to get this one as well as Makoto’s and possibly a few others.
    Playing the free song one thing I noticed is that this game is way more forgiving than Project Diva, the timing windows are huge compared to Diva’s and obviously the note patterns being all clustered in one place make it a lot easier to play as well.

    I need a calendar date for when the Makoto pack drops!
