Only amiami exclusive are up now

Wondergoo apparently has a large tapestry of Iroi, a glasses case of Ritsuko and a face towel of Makoto.

How much do we actually know about Platinum Stars at this point?  Song lists?   Game mechanics?

Pretty much nothing.

I think this is about everything: all 13 765pro idols are in there, the stage gameplay is closer to a normal rhythm game, it's another parallel universe where they start from the bottom, the idols are in a traning camp that looks a lot like the one from the movie and graphics and such have improved (obviously, it's on PS4).

And the release date.

Not too much, but we'll know more by the end of the month as they'll be introducing the game at a panel at Nico Nico Chou Kaigi

Hmmm...I knew there was a good reason why I kept my Nico subscription.

Thanks, Cael, for the update and translation of the store specials.

Well, you know me.  I buy the most economical version (without store special) just to save for that DLC that hurts my wallet everytime.

Seagull - 3 B2 stick posters (Haruka, Chihaya, Miki)

Just a minor correction.  It's actually Takane not Miki.  No worries.  It's no big deal.

Well, this is going to make things a hell lot more complicated.

As Cael mentioned previously lalabit (NBGI's store) is the only store that is offering in game content as its unique.

If you aren't previously aware with im@s: OfA, there were a couple of DLC items that were released exclusively, either as an event, or as a part of the LE.

Unfortunately here's the bad news:

The DLC items that are exclusive to the event (The Ami/Mami Lawson Puppets) have still not become available for purchase.

I can't confirm if the LE pack item (The costume) ever became available, but I don't think so.


So for those who want a compendium to happen or want a complete selection of DLC items for their own use, this would mean that you are forcibly gated into the lalabit version.

This brings up a few complications - They won't ship to any non Japanese address. You must escrow this unless you're physically in Japan, or you know of someone who is local and can be trusted to handle and forward everything.

In my case of course, I'm dealing with a sheer deficit as it stands (Economic damage due to disaster is like that) so I'm going to spell things out in plain English for anyone who's going to ask me the question I KNOW that's going to be asked.

Here's the answer (without needing to state the question):

"A Platinum Stars Compendium project will only be started IF I can get my hands on the lalabit limited edition version of the game."

Otherwise, I deal with out of bounds items, and accuracy is ultimately the point of the compendium (which is the main reason why it was used as a reference system).

As you can guess, I'm still working on replacing parts (and there's quite a few) for repairs, so for the time being, all my funds have been  focused towards the repair and replacement.

No, I don't own a PS4 at this point in time either, but at least that doesn't have a hard time limit placed on it. I can always work on acquiring the PS4 after the game is secure. Unfortunately, the reverse doesn't apply.

Just had to get something off my chest, since the subject came up again.  I saw the video for the LaLaBit headset and thought it looked very nice, unlike a lot of other retailer-specific items for games.  Too bad this promotional tactic reduces everyone else to pleb status.  Keep up the good work, Japan.  -_-;;

We're not the market, not at this point in time. Maybe sometime in the far future.

... Probably after the Japanese market implodes, but that's out of the scope of this thread.

For those who haven't seen it yet.

I really want those accessory but considering where it coming from and the fact that they don't ship oversea, does make it hard. Doesn't help i already pre-order from amiami first day i could lol.

Seems like tenso.com is our only way to get that Lalabit costume...
Or are there any better options? Maybe anislo.jp?

i'm glad it's a costume i'd never use anyway.

I ordered the collectors edition from animate through tenso.com
