PLAYISM announced digital pre-orders for Idol Manager are available now for Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo eShop.
Idol Manager supports English, Japanese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Brazilian Portuguese language text and Japanese voice acting. PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions go on sale on launch day.
The latest details are available below via PLAYISM:
Set out to create an empire, starting with 5 million yen and some free real estate courtesy of a shady figure desiring the prestige of owning a successful talent agency for idol groups. Spend money to audition new talent, then choose promising candidates based on their performing skills and appeal. Factor in other attributes determining how those skills will change as they age as well as how they’ll gel with the rest of the group. One prospect could be the next big star, but could her ego and propensity to spill secrets make more trouble than she’s worth?
Manage personal relationships with the idols, hiring the right agency personnel to find success. Start multiple groups in a quest to control all idol-dom. Research market trends, release singles appealing to the market, and expand their popularity with the proper performances. Govern the groups’ behavior by setting social media sanctions, livestream limitations, and dating do’s and don’ts – strict rules might lead the talent to rebel, but loose rules might not appeal to what fans expect of idols.
Try to build an empire, but remember, money doesn’t grow on trees; don’t go bankrupt, and don’t do anything too scandalous or illegal. Rivals out there want to eliminate the competition, and they’ll play dirty if they need to. Perhaps crime and controversy justify taking them out…
The console versions contain all the content from the hit PC version initially released on Steam in 2021, adding in controller support. Earn multiple endings in Story Mode, with three difficulty modes. See just how rough and mean the world of cute, singing, dancing girls can be, embrace a more casual experience, or simply enjoy the management systems with custom settings in Free Mode.
“We’ve heard all the cries for console versions of Idol Manager since the day we first released it, and we made sure to take the time to ensure the controller support is perfect for console players,” said Max Rogozin, founder, Glitch Pitch. “Pre-order the game today so we can fulfill our lifelong dream of becoming a real-life idol manager and seeing just how accurate we made Idol Manager!”
Lastly, Idol Manager releases August 25 for PS4, PS5, and Switch.
