Bandai Namco has released the second trailer, and new information and screenshots of The Idolmaster: Stella Stage introducing the game’s new “Coaching” and “Off” systems.
Get the details below.
■ 961 Production’s Newcomer Idol Shika Voice Actress
Shika, the new 961 Production idol announced in September, is voiced by Rie Takahashi.
■ New Game Systems: “Coaching” and “Off”
New Job: “Coaching”
Through “Coaching,” you can bloom the hidden talents and abilities of the idols by spending CP (Coaching Points).
—Panels that are not lit up are skills that have yet to be learned. Panels that are lit up are skills that have already been learned.
Select an idol to coach, then move them until you get to the panel of the skill you want them to learn. If you have enough CP, you will learn the skill or can acquire a reward. You can only learn the skills of panels that are adjacent to the panels that you have already lit up.
There are two types of skills you can learn through Coaching. Additionally, there are also various types of rewards you can acquire.
—Unit Skill: Activates by adding the skill values of all members in the unit.
—Leader Skill: Activates only by the leader’s skill.
You can save up CP by performing concerts. How you spend your saved CP to grow the idols depends on you, the producer.
—CP is acquired by performing concerts.
—You can check the CP you have acquired in the activity report screen, as well as the office screen’s production information.
Idol Health Management: “Off”
For some reason, this concert is not as exciting as usual… what’s going on? At times like these, give the idol some time off.
—Healthy! Score rises!
—Not healthy! Score lowers.
By doing jobs, the idols will gradually become tired. When they are tired, they will not have their usual energy, and their concerts will not be very exciting. On the other hand, when they are not tired, they will have more energy than usual and can easily stir up excitement during concerts.
—If you overdo it and continue to work work when you are tired, your health will deteriorate. Work that week is forbidden!
—When an idol becomes tired, she will earn some time “off.” By giving her some time to refresh, she will return the next week with her usual smiling face.
