Namco Bandai's devotion to bringing The iDOLM@STER to everything it can get its hands on isn't just limited to fighter jets. Now its coming to race cars, specifically the ones in Ridge Racer Vita. In the grand tradition of real-life Itasha, fans can expect a raftload of downloadable content for the game throughout Spring, ranging from character-themed cars to music tracks. Check out a second trailer below.
The first batch, due this week and pictured in the gallery, consists of cars based on 765 Production's Haruka Amami, and Makoto Kikuchi. April will bring cars for Yayoi Takatsuki, Azusa Miura, and Chihaya Kisaragi. The rest of the girls follow in May, along with four music tracks.
In true "Scamco" fashion, it will all cost too much money. Getting all of it piecemeal will cost ¥6,500 (more than the cost of the game!), but thriftier otaku can pay for a ¥2,980 "iM@S Pass", which unlocks everything.
