Idolmaster breaches the virtual frontier with Viewing Revolution


Get your glowsticks and join the party

I'm a little surprised it took this long, but The [email protected] is here, folks, and this time, it's virtual. As of yesterday, eager idolaters can get their Move Controller-gripping paws on The [email protected] Cinderella Girls - Viewing Revolution in the North American and European PSN stores. The experience was previously exclusive to the Japanese and Asian stores, forcing fans outside those territories to pony up in foreign lucre to get their Rin Shibuya fix. Luckily for me, I'm not a huge fan of the Cinderella Girls spinoff, so I can resist the siren call of "Yes! Party Time!!"

But if you can't, and own a PlayStation VR headset, the game can be yours today for a cool $20. It's a bit steep for something that essentially amounts to a simplistic three-song rhythm game (if that), but not too bad for VR. That said, Viewing Revolution does keep in the grand tradition of Bandai Namco treating [email protected] fans like a sort of fleshy bank account, seeing as it debuts alongside an obscene amount of paid DLC. One pack of "Extra Live Goods" even commands a $59 asking price. Extra performances go for $8 each. No one ever said devotion to 2D pop stars would be cheap, I guess.
