The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars

Bandai Namco has sent out the official press release for The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars, its 10th anniversary Idolmaster game due out for PlayStation 4 in Japan in 2016.

In The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars, players become a newcomer producer at the young public entertainment office Production 765. While interacting with the 13 idols that belong to the company, and training them through concert activities, players will help them grow to become top idols and aim for the ultimate concert event, the “Extreme Live.”

The first entry in The Idolmaster series for PlayStation 4, The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars has evolved visuals, reborn through completely new character models and more charming and vivid than ever before. Concert scenes are full of presence and intensity, and more dynamic and variegated than previous games. For example, you can fine tune effects like the movement and colors of the 50,000 pen lights in the concert audience to make them go with the music and characters.
