Bandai Namco made good on its promise to provide Idolmaster fans with more of the franchise’s latest single “Voyager” (or “VOY@GER”).
Though the Idolmaster series’ 16th Anniversary stream event teased the song’s CD release by August 4, the official Idolmaster Youtube channel uploaded the full-length animated music video for all to see.

It stars fifteen characters from various Idolmaster franchise games, including The Idolmaster, Cinderella Girls, Million Live, Shiny Colors, and male idols from the SideM series. The video was produced by anime studio Cloverworks, which also produced the Fate/Grand Order: Absolute Demonic Front Babylonia anime series and its upcoming Solomon feature film sequel.
