Today, Bandai Namco announced the release date and revealed new details and assets of the upcoming idol simulation The Idolmaster: Starlit Season.
The game will release in Japan and Asia on May 27, 2021 for PS4 and PC via Steam.
The Steam page is already up, but it’s geo-locked, leaving western players out. How rude.
Supported languages are Japanese with Simplified/Traditional Chinese and Korean subtitles.
We also get to see a new trailer and plenty of gameplay from a livestream aired today, alongside the reveal of a brand new idol named Kohaku Okuzora, voiced by Aimi Tanaka.
You can check everything out below.
No western release has been announced for the moment. I initially thought that the Steam launch could facilitate a debut in North America and Europe as it happened for other Bandai Namco titles, but the geo-locked Steam page certainly puts a dent in that theory.
We’ll have to wait and see if a miracle happens.
