Bandai Namco has released the latest information, screenshots, and video for The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars, introducing the game’s outfit and accessory skills, additional features, and first round of downloadable content.

Get the information below.

■ Outfit and Accessory Skills

Outfits and accessories have “skills” tied to them. By utilizing these skills, you may be able to successfully tackle difficult concert stages. Let’s take a look at some example skills.

Queen Bracelet [Rank C Accessory (Hand)]

The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars

Appeal +10 – A skill that boosts the idol’s appeal by just a little bit.

Paradise Head Charm [Rank C Accessory (Head)]

The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars

Charge Level 1 – Sets the charge Level to 1 once a Memories Appeal is triggered.

Old Rose Anklet [Rank D Accessory (Leg)]

The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars

Fan +5% – A skill that increases the amount of fans acquired during a concert by just a little bit.

Wrapping My Heart [Rank B Outfit]

The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars

Duo Burst III – On a stage higher than Charge Level 1 or 2, a Duo Burst can be triggered.

■ Memories Drive

The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars

When you perform a Memories Appeal and the requirements to trigger a “Drive ○○” are in place, it is possible to trigger a Memories Appeal for multiple idols. The score you acquire in this case is, of course, higher than that of a normal Memories Appeal.

■ Special Extreme Burst

The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars

When you perform a Burst Appeal and the requirements to trigger a “○○ Burst” are in place, it is possible to trigger a special Burst Appeal. Several conditions need to be met, such as dedicated skills, Burst Level, and the amount of idols, but its ability to stir up the concert hall is astounding.

■ Kotori Otonashi the Navigator

The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars

Kotori will support players as the office clerk of 765 Production. If there’s something you don’t know, try checking Kotori’s notes!

■ Photographing Idols

The Idolmaster: Platinum Stars

You can take photos of the idols in-game by using the PlayStation 4’s Share button. You can configure the “Share Button Control Type” for screenshots beforehand to easily take photographs.
