The iDOLM@STER series started as an arcade game released in 2005 where you as the producer took your budding popstars from nothing to stardom. It was followed later on in 2007 with a home console (360) port of the game with later a three version PSP port titled iDOLM@STER SP which added Takane and Hibiki as producable idols. Since then iDOLM@STER has seen two direct sequels: iDOLM@STER 2 and iDOLM@STER ONE FOR ALL.

THE GAMES



--

iDOLM@STER - Arcade/360
http://idolmaster.jp/

The original iDOLM@STER first released in arcades and was later ported in 2007 to 360 which added the first additional idol to the series. Hoshii Miki. Everyones much beloved lazy kinpatsu idol.



--

iDOLM@STER SP - PSP
http://www.bandainamcogames.co.jp/cs...idolmaster/sp/

iDOLM@STER SP was a PSP port of the original arcade game and was split into three seperate releases. Each having a bigger focus on communication than the previous port and added a multiplayer mode playable up to three players locally. It also saw the series debut of Takane and Hibiki alongside the previously added MIki in the rival unit Project Fairy.




--

iDOLM@STER 2 - PS3/360

http://www.bandainamcogames.co.jp/cs...aster/im2/ps3/

iDOLM@STER 2 was a huge step up compared to the first game. It added Miki, Takane and Hibiki as playable idols, but it also removed Ritsuko, Iori, Azusa and Ami by introducing the creation of Ritsuko produced rival idol group Ryuugokomachi. It also saw the series introduction of 961s all Male unit Jupiter.



--

iDOLM@STER ONE FOR ALL - PS3
http://ofa.idolmaster.jp/

iDOLM@STER ONE FOR ALL |OT| - http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=819112 (although this community thread will be the main point of access now)!
The series has also spawned

ONE FOR ALL which was more an updated version of iDOLM@STER 2 readded the ability for the player to produce Ritsuko, Ami, Azusa and Iori while revamping to some for the better and to others for the worse the vocal, dance and image training. Alongside changing the games focus to be more about each idol or idol groups skillsets and performances, ONE FOR ALL was all about the production aspect.

It had mixed reviews amongst fans with some liking the fact they removed some RNG and others finding it removed too much. To decide for yourself, give it a play!



---

iDOLM@STER Deary Stars
http://www.bandainamcogames.co.jp/cs...idolmaster/ds/

In 2009 Namco released iDOLM@STER Dearly Stars for the Nintendo DS which changed the focus from the first game in which you played as one of three idols Ai Hidaka, Eri Mizutani and Ryō Akizuk in as Namco calls it a life simulation game. This spin-off games events take place canonically before iDOLM@STER 2.



---

iDOLM@STER Gravure For You
http://www.bandainamcogames.co.jp/cs...r/im2/ps3/gfu/



The next set of spinoffs come in the shape of iDOLM@STER Gravure For You which were a 9 volume fan disk series where you take photos of your favourite idols in various themed outfits. All of these are now available digitally on the Japanese PSN store and if you're a diehard fan, it's worth picking them up. As with everything else iDOLM@STER though you'll need to get another job to afford it all.

---

iDOLM@STER Shiny Festa
http://www.bandainamcogames.co.jp/cs...lmaster/festa/

Next we have the three PSP and later iOS titles which released as three titles. Groovy Tune (Miki, Takane, Yukiho, Makoto), Funky Note (Ami, Mami, Yayoi, Iori) and finally Honey Sound (Haruka, Chihaya, Azusa, Ritsuko).



---

Then last but not least we have the two Mobile series. Cinderella Girls which is available on Mobage and Million Live which is available to play on GREE.

iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls

iDOLM@STER Million Live

Both added many new idols, some voiced, some not but all amazing none the same. It also has some of the best iDOLM@STER art there's ever been so you should atleast go check it all out. It's cute as hell.

iDOLM@STER Side M



Finally you have iDOLM@STER Side M which is another mobile game featuring an all male cast. which has you working with the soon to be and idols of 315 Production who now boast ex 961 Production's Jupiter who defected after realising Kuroi-shachou tricked them into believing 765, Namco Pro was corrupt.

I should point out I did call it in the Anime thread a while back. Technically being the first to call it doesn't entitle one to a monopoly on making it so I am willing to work together on it, though I'm going to guess that the ideas I had for it will likely clash with other people's.

All the Cinderella Girls are shit and boring IMO. It's just 'here's the overweight one' and 'here's the chuuni one' and 'here's the shut-in one', instead of giving them actual personalities on top of their supposed archetype. Then again, it's to be expected of mobage, they don't NEED to.

I mostly like Rin and Ranko for CG, but yeah. At least the Million Live girls are better overall (imo)

Well, you share preferences with Miura.

Interviewer: (asks Miura who he likes in the franchise)

Miura: "Chi-chan."

Interview: "I'm sorry, who?"

Miura: "Chihaya."

Miura: "I'm sure you can tell from looking at Casca , but I like the fact that Chihaya is stoic."

Interviewer: "I see. iDOLM@STER and Berserk are connected, in the sense of stoic."

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeYYsQ_U65M

I think he coined calling her Chi-chan. The nico comments were hilarious.

Wait what is the point of this thread if each game and each anime already gets a thread? It can't be to contain the MAKOTO DABES IORI A SLUT XD posts since the other threads all turn into that anyway??

It's not that they're all bad, but it waters down the franchise so much with all these new faces no one cares that much about. Not really surprising that Love Live is flooding the market now...
