"The [email protected] [email protected] of Idol World!! 2015," the live concerts celebrating the 10th anniversary of the idol training game/anime/music franchise, began at the Seibu Prince Dome arena on Saturday. The concerts' first day ended with a video that flashed anime footage and the following message, "Finally, the stage moves to the PlayStation 4. PS4 The [email protected] (tentative title)."
After the video ended, franchise producer Yōzō Sakagami said that the video was especially prepared to show fans the current progress of the project. However, he added that the staff is not offering more information for now.
The original game inspired Sunrise's 2007 loose television anime adaptation which Sentai Filmworks licensed for North America. The game franchise then spawned A-1 Pictures' more direct adaptation that included a 2011 television anime series, several original video anime, and a 2014 anime film, THE [email protected] MOVIE: Kagayaki no Mukōgawa e! (pictured right). Crunchyroll streamed A-1 Pictures' television series as it aired in Japan.
The spinoff game The [email protected] Cinderella Girls launched its second anime season this week. Video game developer Cygames' director Eitoshi Ashihara had announced at the Computer Entertainment Developers Conference (CEDEC) in September that his company was working on a PlayStation 4 game after working on Rage of Bahamut and The [email protected] Cinderella Girls.
