Namco Bandai have updated their IM@S channel on the PlayStation 3 with a few new December packs that will be released every week progressively through the month.
First up, for the Shiny TV half, there’s Yukiho Hagiwara’s “Heart” mini-album pack, which includes songs fronted by her such as Little Match Girl and ALRIGHT. This one lands December 4th.
The second mini-album pack will star Iori Minase in her “Grace” album, which includes My Song and Futari no Kiyoku (The Memories We Share). Minase’s comes a little later, December 18th. Each pack costs 1500 yen ($15) and comes with five songs each. These are re-mastered, HD versions of songs you might have gotten before in previous Idolm@ster games now helpfully being released onto one location.
In the Gravure For You! section, we’ve got the sixth volume featuring Makoto Kikuchi. This area lets you snap shots of 13 of the girls in different poses – each girl gets one unique pose – and in different costumes. Volume six was notable for its My Dear Vampire costume which gave Makoto some cute vampire teeth as she poses mock-menacingly on the cover. You can then save them to your hard drive on the PlayStation 3. Her vampiric presence will be felt on the 11th of December.
The Idolm@ster Channel is available on the PlayStation 3 as a free channel right now, but you’ll need to pay to pick up any of the albums.
