Revue Starlight Smartphone Game Launches Worldwide in April

posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Release includes English, Korean, Traditional Chinese support

Developer Ateam announced on April 2 that its Revue Starlight Re LIVE smartphone game will launch globally for iOS and Android devices this month. Supported languages will include English, Korean, and Traditional Chinese. Pre-registration is available now, and players will receive in-game rewards based on the number of pre-registrations.

In the role-playing game, "Stage Girls" compete through their performances in order to become a top star. The game features an all-new story. In addition to nine "Stage Girls" characters from the previous musical and anime, 15 new "Stage Girls" appear in the game.

Ateam developed the game in cooperation with Bushiroad and TBS based on Bushiroad and Nelke Planning's Shōjo Kageki Revue Starlight franchise. The game launched in Japan in October.

Sentai Filmworks licensed the franchise's earlier television anime, and it describes the story:

After receiving a mysterious invitation to audition for a coveted spot with, Starlight, a popular musical revue troupe, star-struck contestants begin honing their talents and competing against each other for a chance of a lifetime. Among the hopefuls are childhood friends, Karen and Hikari, who once promised each other that they would take the stage together. With each contender working tirelessly hard to win, it's the girls' passionate dedication to their lifelong dream that'll truly transform their performances as the curtains rise.

Bushiroad announced the franchise in April 2017 with a stage musical and television anime project. The musical Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight The LIVE, billed as a "2.5 dimension musical and live concert," ran in Tokyo in September 2017. The 12-episode television anime series premiered on July 12. Sentai Filmworks streamed the series on HIDIVE with English subtitles and an English dub. The franchise is also inspiring a new mini anime titled Shōjo☆Konto All Starlight (Girl Comedy Skit All Starlight).

Sora Goto and Kanata Nakamura launched Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight Overture, the first manga for the franchise, in Kadokawa's Dengeki G's Comic magazine on January 30, and ended it on October 30. The manga's second compiled volume shipped on October 26. The franchise also includes the Butai Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight ―The LIVE― SHOW MUST GO ON and Yonkoma Starlight manga.
