Vita Gets Another Rhythm Game With Love Live! School Idol Paradise

By Spencer . April 28, 2014 . 1:30am

Speaking of Kadokawa Games, in addition to action games like Killer is Dead and dungeon crawlers like Demon Gaze they also have a music game in the works. Love Live! School Idol Paradise is developed by Dingo, the developer behind the Hatsune Miku: Project Diva series and later this year Persona 4: Dancing All Night.


Love Live! School Idol Paradise comes out before Risette’s video game since it’s due out in Japan on July 24. The game has three versions Vol. 1 Printemps, Vol. 2 BiBi, and Vol. 3 Lily White.

    Vita’s the new Rhythm haven paradise. YET STILL TAIKO NO TATSUJIN IS MISSING.

    Though the longer the wait, the “DX” edition shapes up into reality.

    • Kaien

      This year:
      – Uta Kumi 575
      – Hatsune Miku Project Diva F 2
      – IA/VT Colorful
      – Love Live School Idol Paradise
      – Persona 4 Dancing All Night (it’s 2014 in Japan?)

      It’s more like otaku rhythm paradise (not for 575 though)

    Merchandising paradise!

      chances are maybe NISA will do this
      but licensing could be a problem too
      especially the songs

      • neocatzon

        The iOS and Android game, School Idol Festival, already announced for international release including in English. Published by Bushiroad. If that one prove successful there’s a chance Kadokawa will be interested too.

        • Anononymous

          When is it going to come out? Just wondering?

          • neocatzon

            Had a same question myself. It’s announced in their official site. I also checked crunchy and afa news site to be sure. No release date so far..

      • I would say it’s likely, given that NISA already acquired license for Love Live (for streaming on CR), according to their PrinnyBomb

        I think the only thing that could stop them is how Western perceive music rhythm game. However, given the fact that Hatsune Miku seems to be a success, I don’t see why Love Live wouldn’t.

        But still, this is a pretty niche title …

        • Renaldi Saputra

          but Love Live is Idol theme, I don’t think they who like Miku will also like this

  • leingod

    Looks like it plays EXACTLY like the Miku games. This looks more interesting though… dunno, the setting maybe?

    • PoweredByHentai

      If you are in the US, you can watch both seasons of Love Live on Crunchyroll.

    • ClaireBeare

      I’m going to be that person just because you put emphasis on “exactly”.
      No, no it does not. Not EXACTLY.

      • Seconded. While I adore the gameplay of Miku, this manages to look incredibly disorientating with a horde of short segments appearing every which way. That combined with note symbols other than the holy PlayStation quartet make it seem extremely foreboding.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      This is idol rhythm game, though not idol simulation one like [email protected]

  • TrueDefault

    Finally some gameplay footage!!

  • Cazar

    Bleh. Vita needs [email protected]

    • Renaldi Saputra

      but it’s now on PS3

    • Kenyah

      Love Live is good.
      Though, hopefully we will get cinderella girls for Vita.

      • Cazar

        I can’t bring myself to like LL. It just seems really tacky in comparison.

        I’d rather see a more proper [email protected] game for Vita like the PSP got with THE [email protected] SP; not some micro-transaction based card game that doesn’t even have music.

    • Keksus

      PS3 gets Idolmaster. And hopefully they make an Idolmaster 3 with more focus on the actual producing again soon.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Hah, I wish I was into idols. I really don’t get the massive appeal. Either way, I hope the entire tracklist is actually good and not just generic j-pop. Not hating on the game by the way.

  • Lee Chueng

    i know this is not related but…..what’s the difference between limited edition vs Famitsu DX Famitsu edition?

  • Kornelious

    I think there is a better chance of games like this being localized now that we have the two Diva F games and Hyperdimension PP……So that’s good :)

    • TheExile285

      HDN PP isn’t a rhythm game. Its a VN with dating sim elements.

      • Kornelious

        Oh, your right it kinda falls around the sam category though…..kinda :P
        On a side note being able to date the goddesses is gonna be awesome <3

      • DyLaN

        More exactly, its an idol sim with dating sim elements.

  • Keko

    Project Diva 2nd, IA/VT Colorful and now Love NICO NICO NII Live for Vita. My wallet can’t handle it!

  • otakumike

    Hey Nisa is doing things with love live! recently so what are the chances they might localize this game?

    • Renaldi Saputra

      licensing the songs could be a problem
