Bandai Namco Games began streaming a trailer on Wednesday for its Hanayamata Yosakoi LIVE! Play Station Vita game. The trailer features the game's story, rhythm mini-game, and the special edition's product details.

It will retail for 9,980 yen (about US$97) and the standard edition will retail for 5,690 yen (about US$56). The game will ship in Japan on November 13.
The official website for the television anime adaptation of Sou Hamayumiba's schoolgirl dancing manga announced in June that a game was in development.
Ordinary in looks, ordinary in brains, ordinary in arts and athletics … 14-year-old Naru Sekiya is just ordinary in every way. Naru leads an ordinary day-to-day life even as she adores "heroines." She embarks on a path to an unordinary world called "Yosakoi" dance, guided by an exotic fairylike girl she met one moonlit evening.
The anime adaptation premiered in July. Crunchyroll is streaming the episodes as they air in Japan.
Hamayumiba launched the manga in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Forward magazine in 2011, and Houbunsha published the fourth volume in January. Sou also created the Sorairo Square. (Sky-Blue Square) manga.
