The official Twitter account for the The [email protected] Million Live! Theater Days smartphone game revealed on Thursday that the game has received 1 million pre-registered users. The game's staff will host a live-stream event on Niconico on May 30 to thank fans for reaching the milestone.
Bandai Namco Entertainment began accepting pre-registrations for the game on April 30. The game received 100,000 pre-registrations on the first day, 200,000 by the second day, and 300,000 by the third day. Players who pre-register will receive various awards based on how many players pre-register, and the final goal for the pre-registration campaign was getting 1 million people to pre-register.
The stage for the new game is a 765 Pro live theater, and it takes place in rooms such as the theater's office, waiting room, and greenroom. The game features the theater clerk character Misaki Aoba. In the game, players can communicate more with certain idols by touching them on screen. The game's solo and unit concerts feature rhythm games.
The game will launch in Japan this year.
Namco Bandai Games released the original The [email protected] Million Live! smartphone game in February 2013 as a spinoff of The [email protected] game series. The game features the 765 Pro characters of the original series, as well as 37 new characters. The game allows players to manage their own idol production company, and raise their idols' skills.
