New Idolmaster announced for PlayStation 3

Plus the debut trailer for the free-to-download Imas Channel.

New Idolmaster Producer Game

A new Idolmaster producer game is in development for PlayStation 3, Namco Bandai announced during a Tokyo Game Show stage event today.

Further details were not announced, but more information might arrive during the “The Idolmaster Secret Event at Akabane” on November 2.

Earlier this month, Namco Bandai also announced it would be bringing its Idolmaster series to PlayStation 4. Apparently, there’s still some way to go before that one comes out.

In addition to the new game announcement, Namco Bandai shared the debut trailer for Imas Channel, its free-to-download delivery service for paid Idolmaster content on PlayStation 3. View some screenshots at the gallery.
