The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars

Bandai Namco has released the debut trailer and screenshots for The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars, its new Idolmaster game for PlayStation 4.

Here are some details about the game:

Prologue

13 idols are employed at the young talent agency 765 Production, known by its nickname 765 Pro. Although everyone has made their debuts, they’re not exactly at the height of popularity… There is still some hidden talent within them yet to bloom! Seeing this, president Junjirou Takagi leases a training camp in the remote countryside. The protagonist (the player) is a newcomer producer at 765 Pro expected to overturn the situation. At the training camp, you’ll spend your days with the idols supporting them while they perform concerts and grow.

Extreme Live

The goal in The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars is to reach the biggest concert stage, the “Extreme Live.” By increasing the girls’ popularity and merit as idols through concert events, their idol ranks will rise, they’ll be recognized as top-class idols, and the Extreme Live will be within reach.
