Aikatsu! (アイカツ!), short for Aidoru Katsudō! (アイドルカツドウ, or, "Idol Activities!"), is a renown arcade collectibles line of games produced by BANDAI NAMCO. The franchise began in 2012 and the premise is using collectible cards to help the idols score new and upcoming auditions through outfit choices and other mini games. Additionally, an Anime was released subsequently to this game's franchising. On December 4th, the newest addition to the line of games was released, named Aikatsu 336 Hi-no Idol Days.
I usually am a sucker for these types of games where you can create fashion show-type-situations because it involves personal creativity with the characters. The mini games seem very cute and enjoyable, and the character models are even more impressive than ever. I really like how the characters remain 3D, yet have that cel-shaded anime style to them. This game is very hands-on so it doesn't seem to be demanding of much Japanese language knowledge. I'd love to hear your opinions on the game if you get the chance to pick it up, so please be sure to comment below for me! Enjoy the video commercial straight from Japanese Television, below!
