Idomaster Shiny Festa's basically Idolmaster Project Diva


Though its technical name is [email protected] Shiny Festa, it's a rhythm game about a bunch of nonexistent singing/dancing idols, so I say [email protected]: Project Diva is as good a title as any for this new PSP offering. Beyond that, and the unsurprising revelation that the set list will feature songs and footage from the [email protected] anime, there's not much else to say.

The graphics look great, though, miles better than what you could see in the [email protected] SP games. Then again, Namco could be cheating, using assets or footage from the home console versions. I hope to goodness that that's not the case.

Never one to pass up an opportunity to milk [email protected] fans, 765 Productions' voluminous cast will be split between three different versions of the game. Honey Sound will feature Azusa, Haruka, Chihaya and Ritsuko, Groovy Tune will feature Miki, Makoto, Takane and Yukiho, and Funky Note will feature the Futami twins, Yayoi, Hibiki, and Iori.

Thankfully, I'll only have to consider buying one version, seeing as my three favorite girls (and Yukiho) are all concentrated on Groovy Tune. Besides, buying Funky Note might get me on some kind of watchlist.
