(Don’t mind me.  Just thinking aloud what’s been presented.  This is all just my personal opinion.)

Based on what’s been shown, I’m sure this game will at least be better than PS.  I mean, they finally removed that awful P drop system (meaning no more drops), which everyone hated.  Also, they brought back casual outfits, which is nice to see (and they’re back in the office).

There’s seems to be a skill system too.  So, it seems they are implementing some OFA stuff into this game.

And, that’s good that they’re letting us use PS DLC we spent money on to be transferred.  That would help some of us save some money (though I can imagine how much extra DLC they will put in to make up for that.)

Based on what people seen in TGS, it seems gameplay will be largely similar to PS.  I guess like people said the game is like PS with some OFA like changes/additions.

I’m pretty surprised how soon this game came out.  Then again, PS didn’t fare well with everyone, and Namco wanted to end it right away.  So, I suppose this game is an apology for that. 

Obviously, there were several major things wrong with PS.  But, one of my main complaints were the communications.  I recall way back before PS came out about my concerns for communications in PS. (Turns out my concerns were right.)

Unfortunately, the communications in PS were lacking.  Not only in quantity but also in quality (meaning, in my definition, I didn’t feel that close personal (or intimate depending on the idol) relationship that I experienced with the previous games.) (I can’t speak for all idols since I didn’t play through all the routes, but that’s the general feeling I got with PS.  PS kept touch scenes in communications, which is good but like I said, it just seemed lacking overall compared to previous games.)

Since there will be a rival character and rank up scenes, for sure there will be more communications quantity wise in Stella Stage compared to PS.  But, “quality” wise (in my definition), I can’t say for certain until I play the game.

Personally, I don’t mind the resets.  Every console game does that.  I guess it’s sort of the tradition.  I mean, I like re-experiencing the story and relationship building (with Chihaya only of course).  But, that’s just me.

But, even if there aren’t many communications (quality and/or quantity) maybe they’ll add it as DLC since I'm assuming they’ll be doing catalogs for a while.  (though will cost more money, nonetheless).

But, we’ll see.  Again, everything I’ve said is just my opinion.  At this point, only way to know for certain if I’ll like this game is to actually play the game.  (Though, for sure I'm going like it better than PS at the very least.)

So, I’ll be preordering this game.

Being an 765pro only fan,  I’m grateful they’re still releasing stuff.  I just hope the communications will be as good as the previous games since PS was disappointing.  I feel like that’s one of the foundations that Namco seemed to have forgotten.

From the looks of it, they're going with Shika? Apparently, that's what people heard her name as.
She's from Austria, Vienna to be more specific.

Ah... Austria? I thought I heard Australia.

I double checked, it's Austria.


And I could have sworn it was Shiika, where are you getting Shiina from? I just looked it up, the translator I used is giving it as "Shiika", which means "poetic flower".

That's what I was told, there's no official furigana reading at the moment, both articles I checked only had the kanji.

*gasp* A new rival! And she has more than one outfit this time! *cough*Leon*cough* And I could have sworn it was Shiika, where are you getting Shiina from? I just looked it up, the translator I used is giving it as "Shiika", which means "poetic flower". I wonder what her personality will be like...maybe she'll be friendly to the 765 girls, like Leon was, or maybe she'll be a high-and-mighty jerk...I'm so excited, she looks amazing!

Oh, more data. Nice.
As for her name, I still can't say for sure. Although I heard the girls saying "Shiika".


She was raised in Austria and came back to Japan. (I'm guessing that means she's part Japanese)
Due to her upbringing she already has a foundation in music.
It also mentions her having experience in ballet and fashion modeling.

There's only one image of her line but her using the phrase "it's been an honor" (光栄です) reminds me of how Chihaya talks.

As for her data, actually I thought that was Takane after reading this. Then... a mix of Chihaya and Takane?

Is it Shiika or Shiina?

Im just not sold on that returning gameplay from Platinum Stars. It seems they think a selling point is finally getting the girls out of those awful track suits... I guess it is for some. So whats really new? OFA style menu system and some new interactions? I just cant imagine having a huge amount of reasons to play this game with the Platinum Stars gameplay returning. Maybe they have something up their sleeve or some good incentives planned out, but I had my fill of Platinum Stars. Maybe this new girl means rival battles are returning? Would love to see Rin Shibuya, if she shows up im sure it will cost 2k yen just to have her in a rival battle. Sigh. Hope im wrong and the game is great but frankly I dont believe it will be... Probably pick it up no matter what if the Asian release has English subs but I most certainly will not import this new at 8k yen after Platinum Stars.
Seeing all the day one bonus that they give and I can already sense how weird the money loving Scamco acting here. To be safe lower your expectation to zero and expect nothing.
