School Star Dream

Photo Kano and Kimi Kiss producer Ichiro Sugiyama is working on a new iOS and Android game called School Star Dream, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals.

School Star Dream lets players enjoy a variety of episodes starring young girl idols, whom players can see grow from their elementary to high school years, as they push forward towards their dreams. The Famitsu article features a look at five idols, and introduces the game’s story progression and rhythm parts.

Thanks, Famitsu.

Update 7:20 p.m.: New details have come in from Famitsu. School Star Dream is due out in Japan as a free-to-play title (with in-app purchases) in December.

Get the information below.

Each girl has their own individual episodes. Players will help fulfill their dreams while going about their idol and school lives. The story will develop from elementary to middle to high school. And even after you enter the next stage of school, you can go back and play your favorite generation.

During the rhythm game, there are two main styles: dancing and singing. The music and game aspects change according to the mode, and the singer voice is different based on what year of school the idol is in. There will also be a number of costumes.

Peko is doing character designs. The five characters introduced in the magazine are voiced by Azumi Waki, Sarah Emi Bridcutt, Rui Tanabe, Reina Kondo, and Natsumi Hioka, respectively.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
