|Video Game Data|
THE iDOLM@STER Starlit Season (Japanese: アイドルマスター スターリットシーズン Aidorumasutaa Sutaaritto Shiizun) is the third PlayStation 4 game in the 2nd Vision era and the first Steam game created in celebration of the franchise's 15th anniversary. This game marks the first crossover console game between the characters from THE iDOLM@STER, Cinderella Girls, Million Live!, and Shiny Colors without requiring purchases of downloadable content. The graphics and models from Platinum Stars and Stella Stage have been carried over with some adjustments and additional models for the newly added characters. It also uses Unreal Engine 4 for high quality graphics, and is the final game in the 2nd Vision era.
The Starlit Season revolves around an idol unit tournament in which the winner can become the first performers on the stage of the Starlit Dome after the completion of its construction at the end of the year.
The player, a producer from the talent agency 765 Production, has returned to Japan from an overseas training program. Upon returning to the 765 Production office, you are greeted by Junjirou Takagi and are given the opportunity to take part in the Starlit Season. Takagi has an ambitious plan to stand out from the competition and reached out to other agencies to see if any are interested with cooperating with 765 Production. The interested agencies that responded favorably have sent their representative idols and the collective group will join the tournament as a special unit under the name of Project LUMINOUS.
The goal of Starlit Season is to be voted as the top idol group after a span of 10 months, divided into periods for each of the 4 seasons: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Unlike previous games, schedules are not determined by weeks, but by days and actions that are available will be determined by what day it is.
The game takes place over a 10-month elimination tournament schedule, with the goal of overcoming each challenge and perform in the final stage of Starlit Season. At the end of each season, there will be a selection stage where fans will vote who will stay or be eliminated from the tournament based on popular vote.
