Idolm@ster for DS

May 27th, 2009 by Author

As seen at “my game news flash” (via), a gaming magazine Famitsu announced Idolm@ster Dear Stars for DS.

The whole idea seems cynical. First Idolmaster Portable, and now this. For the game defined by its exquisite 3D to be detuned progressively for the worse and worse platform… may be very shrewd! I am sure that the groping excercise is still in there. Release the VN and strategy part of the game, in poor resolution, and reap the green harvest.

As for the all-new cast, well, I don’t know what to think. Seems difficult to come up with new and appealing personality types. And their names are in English exactly why?

UPDATE: DiGiKerot noted by e-mail:

Looks like it may be a DSi native game, though, which means it’ll probably be region locked, which means I’m probably going to have to buy yet another DS.

Regions suck. And I don’t think DSi is as powerful as PSP (its screen is definitely not as good in any case).
