Idolmaster Shiny Colors

The Idolmaster Shiny Colors roster of performers continues to expand. With the game’s third anniversary, another name was added to the list: SHHis. SHHis (pronounced like “She’s”)  is the latest idol unit added to the playable cast and is the seventh playable idol unit in the game. It’s also the first duo unit in Shiny Colors. [Thanks, Famitsu!]

Check out the teaser trailer for SHHis, featuring the duo’s song “OH MY GOD!”

The new Idolmaster Shiny Colors duo unit is described with the key words “Shining, Sequins, and Chandeliers” and is designed as a spicy, feminine pair focused on dance-pop music. It consists of two girls: Nichika Nanakusa and Mikoto Aketa.

Nichika is the younger sister of Hazuki Nanakusa, The Idolmaster Shiny Colors assistant character. Nichika is described as “everyone’s little sister” and has a willful personality, with a talent for getting people to treat her nicely. She admires idols and is highly competitive, refusing any kind of compromise. Meanwhile, Mikoto is focused on her dream of becoming an idol that can move people, be it through song, dance, or performance. She’s so focused, in fact, that sometimes she forgets to eat and sleep.

SHHis has have special “Commu” scenes in the ongoing PicNic Basket event rerun to help players get to know them. New songs from the two will debut in the game’s Idolmaster Shiny Colors L@YERED WING series of album CDs. Their disc, L@YERED WING 08, will go on sale on November 10, 2021.

The Idolmaster Shiny Colors is immediately available on Android devices, iOS devices, and browsers in Japan. No English localization has been announced as of yet. The next console-based game in the franchise, The Idolmaster: Starlit Season, was delayed to a late 2021 release.
