Today Bandai Namco had a new reveal in store for its upcoming idol management and rhythm game The Idolmaster: Starlit Season.
We get the reveal of a brand new idol, Aya, voiced by Rina Hidaka, whom you may know as SIlica in Sword Art Online.
She forms the new idol unit “Diamant” created by the rival 961 Production with Leon and Shika. She also appears to have past dealings with 765 Production’s new idol Kohaku Okuzora.
We see her in action in a brand new story trailer and in the music video of the song “Overmaster” performed by Diamant.
If you’d like to see more about The Idolmaster: Starlit Season, you can enjoy the first teaser trailer and screenshots, a second batch of images, the first gameplay, more screenshots, a music video, and the previous trailer, another extensive reveal, more gameplay, and the previous music video.
The game will release in Japan and Asia for PS4 and PC on October 14, 2021.
No western release has been announced for the moment, and honestly, I wouldn’t hold my breath. The Steam page is geolocked and inaccessible to western gamers (unless you use a VPN, of course), which likely indicates that Bandai Namco isn’t planning to pull a surprise comparable to Super Robot Wars 30.
