The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars

Famitsu has gone up with its first online preview of the newly announced The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars for PlayStation 4.

The game puts players in the role of a producer at the public entertainment office “765 Production,” who will guide 13 girls to becoming top idols. The girls of 765 Production made their idol debuts, but aren’t very popular, so company president Junjirou Takagi proposes a training camp where the producer will live alongside the idols while strengthening his bonds with them and leading them to fame.

The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars is the first entry for PlayStation 4, and takes advantage of the hardware with completely new character models, significantly improved facial expressions, dynamic camera work during concert scenes, and crowds of over 50,000 waving pen lights.
