February 15 game combines all 3 groups in Japan-wide tour

Bandai Namco Entertainment announced a new game in the IDOLiSH7 franchise titled IDOLiSH7 Twelve Fantasia! on Thursday. The game is slated for the PlayStation Vita in Japan on February 15.

The game features all 12 members of the IDOLiSH7, Trigger, and Re:vale groups in an original story centering on a combined Japan tour. The story is connected to the second and third story parts in the smartphone game. The game allows players to manage the characters' touring schedules, with decisions determining how characters develop. Players must also develop connections with the characters to enhance their performance during concerts. During concerts, players play a rhythm game. The game's final destination is a concert in Zero Arena.

Those who pre-order the game will receive a download code for a PS Vita theme, as well as a feature that allows the most advanced character to sing a solo part in the game. First-print limited editions of the game will include a Twelve Fantasia T-shirt, a pouch, and a tour pamphlet.

Bandai Namco Online made the IDOLiSH7 "dramatic rhythm action" iOS and Android game with music in collaboration with Lantis. The player assumes the role of Tsumugi Takanashi, a manager for a new idol group. She must train seven male singers — each with their own individual personalities — to turn them into the No. 1 idols. The game features full voicing of the dialogue by the cast.

The franchise is inspiring a television anime adaptation that will premiere in January and will have a total of 17 episodes. Crunchyroll began streaming the first two episodes on Thursday.
