Smartphone game starring μ's, Aqours, new Nijigasaki debuts later this year
The official YouTube channel for the Love Live! franchise began streaming a promotional video for KLab Games and Bushiroad's Love Live! School Idol Festival ALL STARS smartphone game on Wednesday. The video previews the song "KOKORO Magic 'A to Z'" that will feature in the game.
The game was originally slated for release in 2018 but was delayed to 2019.
The game will be a new version of the Love Live! School Idol Festival smartphone game. The new version will include the members of Nijigasaki Academy's Idol Appreciation Club who were introduced last year as part of the game's "Perfect Dream Project" (PDP).
The new game will offer a completely original, fully voiced new story that will bring the members of both μ's and Aqours together. The story will include stories that involve each school, personal stories that deepen the bonds between two characters, and a larger story that will cross the boundaries between all three schools.
The game will also bring new nine-member formation dances, and will have new gameplay systems for the concerts other than the rhythm game that has been present in the game so far. Players will be able to customize the activities of the characters and personalize their skills through a skill tree.
Bushiroad and KLab released the Love Live! School Idol Festival rhythm action and adventure game in English on iOS and Android devices in May 2014. The game added the Love Live! Sunshine!! characters in September 2016, and it reached 40 million users worldwide last November.
The game received an arcade version titled Love Live! School idol festival ~afterschool Activity~ that launched in Japan in 2016.
