The A3 English Release Will Finally Bring The Actor-Raising Sim Westward In Fall 2019




Cybird attended Anime Expo 2019 and used the event to provide an update on the A3! localization. The simulation where you have to help prepare actors for Ikemen troupes will finally be released outside of Japan in Fall 2019. This reveal comes just over a year after the English version was announced. (Thanks, Otome Obsessed!)


In A3!, which stands for Act! Addict! Actors!, players follow a woman who ends up inadvertently becoming the last hope for the Mankai Company. As the new director at the theater company, it is up to her to work with the four troupes there to put on shows and make it a success. That way, the actors and theater can become famous and successful. Maybe, along the way, the heroine could even find out what happened to her father. The gameplay consists of visual novel, stat-raising, and minigame elements.


Here are some A3! gameplay and PV videos from the Japanese version of the game.




A3! is immediately available for mobile devices in Japan. It will get an English release in Fall 2019.
