Japanese Publisher Apologizes For Game Delay With Free DLC

Kadokawa Games delayed Love Live! School Idol Paradise from Hatsune Miku: Project Diva developer Dingo again. The PlayStation Vita music game was pushed back a month from July 24 to August 28. In Japan, it’s typical to follow up a delay with an apology to fans, but Kadokawa Games is doing a little more than that.


Love Live! School Idol Paradise Vol. 1 – 3 will include a DLC code to get a Stage Color Special Gimmick (Live Production) as a bonus with first print copies. Love Live! School Idol Paradise is actually three different games Vol. 1 Printemps Unit, Vol. 2 BiBi Unit, and Vol. 3 Lily White Unit.

  • Does anyone know if those games are compatible with the Vita TV? Purchased one, and as a Love Live fan, i’m gonna get all the DLC’s ;)

    I am already having a ton of fun playing the Love Live mobile rhythm game that came out a little while ago.

    That being said, it would be amazing to see a Dingo Love Live game on the Vita. I don’t see the need to worry one bit here. Dingo does quality work and they should take all the time they can to get Love Live right. Extremely excited for this one.

      I’m a bit worried about whether Dingo can do a good job given budget constraints — what we’ve seen so far of the game looks decidedly lower budget than the other rhythm games they’ve worked on.

        Yeah, The girls have a stick-arm syndrome and I hope they make them look more feminine. It still could be a lot of fun, but yeah, it does look a bit lower on the rung than Persona 4 Dancing All Night and Miku titles.

    Mmh, I don’t know much about Love Live when compared to Idolmaster, but the one thing I notice in the image is a severe case of sameface.

      they’re both Idol Groups…
      just that

    • Love Live has best faces, watch the show~

      Anime character is defined by hair shape, hair color, and eye color.
      If someone gives me a facial shot(no pun intended) of anime character, I won’t be able to guess correctly.

    I don’t know much about this game but I would so Import if there was a Limited Edition (And I had more Money X( )

  • Negatron99

    I’ve already pre-ordered all three games. Not that I’m happy that it’s been delayed, because it’ll mean longer to get it. But I’m happy it’s going to be delayed because of so much is being released and pre-ordered right now…. my poor wallet.
