THE IDOLM@STER Million Live Announcements

Pyonkichi said that the nama for Millitheater was gonna be すんごいやんばい, AND IT WAS!

First up, THE IDOLM@STER Million Live Theater Days related news: it’s billed as a live and producing game, so you have both aspects included: a rhythm game part, and a producing part where you can interact with the girls in 4 different rooms. The live part will have 2/4/6 and Million Mix modes which will determine the difficulty of the game. ALSO KOKORO GA KAERU BASHO WAS CHEATING NOT COOL ;_______;

In the producing modes, you can fill up a Producer Gauge by interacting with the girls, and you’ll be given gifts when the P Gauge is full. Background items like whiteboards and posters will change, and you can even send flower stands to other people!

Not only that, we’re also getting a pair of new idols as a part of the 39 Project, increasing the total new Milliontheater idols to 39 people!

First up is Sakuramori Kaori, a 23 old music teacher who is good at playing golf and enjoys riding horses. She’s voiced by Kouri Arisa.

We also have Shiraishi Tsumugi, a high school girl who calls the producer dumbass. Minami Saki voices her.

The game will also feature new categories for the idols: Fairy, Princess and Angel, (I’m currently assuming that this is done because the Vocal/Dance/Visual split in Million Live will be turned into in game stats, but this is a mere assumption!)

Going into CD announcements, the first CD in The IDOLM@STER MILLION THE@TER GENERATION series: 01 Brand New Theater! is slated for a 26 July release for JPY 1300 before tax. In addition to Brand New Theater and Dreaming by 51 765 MILLION ALL STARS idols (Sadly, Kotoha will still not be featured in the CD), it will also feature Umi and Tsubasa’s Invincible Justice, the song that played in the Mighty Sailor part of the 4th PV.

A new batch of solo CDs is also going to be released from August onwards. Titled THE IDOLM@STER MILLION LIVE! M@STER SPARKLE, the first four CDs will have the following girls:

01: Mirai, Tsumugi, Momoko, Fuuka, Yuriko (2017.8.23 RELEASE)
02: Tsubasa, Shiho, Kaori, Matsuri, Subaru (2017.9.20 RELEASE)
03: Minako, Sayoko, Serika, Konomi, Shizuka (2017.10.25 RELEASE)
