Does difficulty affect anything other then score?

Does anyone have a link to the trophies yet?


Those are from that 2ch thread.

I just hope they implement reasons to play long after the platinum trophy. Like very rare items that come from the presents, and some free ones (yea right) added every other catalog to give you something to grind for. There was a good bit of DLC I probably would have got for OFA but there was no new jobs/lives I really cared to do over a bunch of times just to play with a $20 song. Hoping for some good solid reasons to do some grinding in this game. Love being able to select a song right before a job, the OFA system was pretty annoying.

What's the cheapest place to buy Platinum Stars so far? I'm a silly Canadian that has to pay silly prices.

That's not true at all. Character development is often about seeing a character go from one state to another, even if it's not as extreme as say Awakened Miki was. Even something as simple as moving them to another country could add a whole lot of new situations and problems.
Well technically true, but the story lately has not really been much of one at all. The cast has not really had any character development since the anime. OFA was basically just new interactions, same exact idols just reacting to slightly different situations. Which is what Platinum Stars is looking to be too, same cast, same exact personality's with no development from the previous installments having an effect, reacting to slightly new iterations of the same story. Personally I very much like this formula.

I don't speak Japanese either, but this is all based on translated info I got.

Good, I'm not the only one who noticed this. From the front, they look great. But turn them at a certain angle and that's when issues arise, especially from the profile view, which I think looks pretty bad with the second eye just sticking out as if they're close together, when they're really not.
Haruka and Yayoi seem to be the worst offenders, Miki nearly unaffected. Chihaya is not too bad either, Takane had a weird shot in her recent trailer. We are just going to have to see.

Surprised everyone is so concerned about the story here, am I the only one who cant speak Japanese? o_O

I think the game looks really good, though the idol models have some faces that will take some getting used to. I think they look kind of odd at certain side angles. One thing cool is that its obviously a visual upgrade but it dont completely dismiss OFA as a game, like OFA kind of did to IM@S 2. People are talking about burn out but we really dont get these games often, and the story resets dont bother me one bit. Was anybodys story really all that great save for Chihaya whos story for what it is was not very new or exciting, but she managed to have a lot of personality that ended up being her own. I just really dont think a new setting, goal, or story is really ever going to make Miki or Iori, or any of them, not who they have already been established as. Granted its disappointing to see some interesting aspects of the characters lost over time and replaced by things not as good, or just bland in comparison, but that seems to always be the fate of long running stuff like this. That said the story was a really cute one that surprised almost everyone that came into contact with the series, and thats why people are a bit down about the current state of things. I am just happy the story ever got to the point where we could all care about it as much as we do.

I am just glad a new IM@S game is coming out, that has all the core features that we expect out of the main series games. While the outfits being the same on everyone is definitely a loss, everything else looks super polished and great. Bandai has never been known to go super crazy and this game definitely has the most work put into it since IM@S 2. OFA reused a ton of assets while this is reusing none. That said, the amount of content in the game is not known so we will just have to see if it can at least rival OFA in the regard.
