AKB48 Finally Gets An Official Music Game Is, Well, The Name Of The Game

By Spencer . May 7, 2014 . 1:22am


Jpop group AKB48 has had their music in Taiko: Drum Master and a 3DS game. However, AKB48+Me from Kadokawa Games is more of an idol training game than a rhythm title. Strategy & Partners, the company that made Attack on Titan: Wings of Counterattack Online, also developed the official AKB48 music game aptly titled AKB48 Finally an Official Music Game Is Out.


This title is a rhythm game where you tap and flick the screen to hit notes while super deformed AKB48 members sing songs. Players can put together a group of their favorite AKB48 members and take the smartphone stage.  As your rank goes up, you can unlock new stages and songs.


AKB48 Finally an Official Music Game Is Out lives up to its name and is out now for iOS and Android.

      I think of this line for every dance/rhythm game now. Damn you ATLUS!

    the character model…could have made it smoother. I mean, they are SD sized meaning less polygon than the normal size character models, could’ve been more polished.
    At least add the fingers in. If Sega/Dingo(pj mirai) can do it, so can these people.

  • GHAmer

    finally they get some cute face in a game

  • My god, what a perfect title for a game.

    I still wish we got an AKB0048 rhythm game, because I don’t care about the real ones but I sure loved the anime. But that’s a funny title at least.

  • >not AKB0048 sorry i’ll be skipping this.

  • Schiller

    Will this game feature a Skinhead idol?
