That's the new commu mini-game. Roll high enough and you get a perfect or something, is what it looks like. Not sure what I think about it, though.

They're your commu events apparently.

if that minigame really is what decides your commu result instead of picking the right choices then that would be a huge step back imo, it looks quite random...

Does this dice mini-game determine if the communication is perfect, good, normal, bad?  Or is it just mainly for how much extra memory you'll gain at the end of the communication?

If it determines the communication result, then what about choices and touch scenes?  Don't they also determine the communication result too like in all of the previous im@s games?  I hope they didn't replace choices and touch scenes for this dice mini-game.  Because, that would be a major disappointment.


@Naryoril

Yeah, I have that same concern too.

Sorry, for repeating things.

Only reason I can think of for that system is a guide deterrent; Ps tend to be Gary Stus with all the right answers. :P

I’m sure most im@s fans would rather understand their idol and pick the right choice and touching place to make the idols happy than to throw a dice to determine if they’ll be happy or not.

I know I'm making assumptions, so I guess we'll see what this dice game is all about.

Hoping that the dice minigame is actually a booster for commu score instead of determining the result of the commu

About the outfit menu at ~6 mins...

Does anyone know what the name of the head accessory is? I don't know what the first part of the name says.

By the way, the outfit is called Twinkle Star, the body accessory is Paradise Pochette, the hand accessory is Queen Brace, and the leg accessory is Sunny Day Leg Charm, if anyone wanted to/didn't know.
What will I paint on the pure-white tomorrow that spreads to its limit?
What will I paint on the tomorrow dyed pitch-black by reality?

The accessory name should be Akabara baretta if i'm not wrong

Just by looking at it i was guessing something it that direction too, but "bara" (rose) is written as 薔薇 and the kanji in the video don't look like that. They are too blurry to say anything definitve though.

So you think it's just Red Rose Barrette?
That would make sense since that's what it is.

I'm guessing (and hoping) the dice minigame is a way to enhance work communications. OFA had those too, but they were automatically cleared and gave you accessories from what I remember.

I really can't see them doing away with regular commus, though.

OFA had minigames?  Are you talking about the vending machine communications (picking the right drink)?  Or are you referring to promotions? (I don't recall there being a minigame, but you do get accessories from certain promotions).  Sorry, if I sound confused.

From the way it was written, promotion should be the one that is stated
