Xbox Japan's most popular game, Idolmaster, moves to PSP
The [email protected] SP looks to be based on the arcade original, with downsized PSP graphics. You play as a producer that must work with a variety of underaged pop idols. To ensure maximum profitability, Namco Bandai is releasing three versions of the game, each with three characters. (Wondering Star will actually feature four. Terrific value!) Considering the incredible desire of nerds to manage anime pop stars, we have a feeling this will do very well when it debuts in Japan.

"You play as a producer that must work with a variety of underaged pop idols".
Good night to everyone.

Contrary to popular belief, not every thing Japanese involving underage girls is sexual.

They haven't done pop star tycoon yet.
It comes with a gold leisure suit, bedazzled aviator sunglasses, and a big cigar.

I just wish either this one or the 360 version would somehow luck its way to the US. I really should learn Japanese.

Three versions, each focusing on one of the characters? Does that mean that none of the other characters are represented or are they spread out over the three games? If the PSP versions are watered down ports, then it's probably better to get one of the Xbox versions. T_T I guess we'll see (assuming someone else on this website cares, haha).
Also, 'The [email protected] SP' at the beginning of the second paragraph should be 'The [email protected] SP'. ;)
Heh, I have trouble imaging this on the PSP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4O2dQ5e3tdc

...What does the player do?

Heh, I just read the sourced article and it explained my concern about the dispersal of characters; there's three per game.
Jacksons, the player plays through a series of minigames to make the idol not suck on stage. I think there's a tutorial demonstration video on Youtube or Gametrailers (or somewhere like that...) if you're interested.

Ahh, I see. I'll head over to YouTube to slay my curiosity. As for making this possible on the PSP, Namco Bandai has quite a task at hand.

At first glance, I read the thing as "Idol Molester."
