▍About Idol Manager
In Idol Manager, you set out to create an empire, starting with 5 million yen and some free real estate courtesy of a shady figure desiring the prestige of owning a successful talent agency for idol groups.
Spend money to audition new talent, then choose promising candidates based on their performing skills and appeal. Factor in other attributes determining how those skills will change as they age as well as how they’ll get along with the rest of the group.
▍Idol Manager Gameplay
Govern the groups’ behavior by setting social media sanctions, livestream limitations, and dating do’s and don’ts – strict rules might lead the talent to rebel, but loose rules might not appeal to what fans expect of idols.
Try to build an empire, but remember, money doesn’t grow on trees; don’t go bankrupt, and don’t do anything too scandalous or illegal. Rivals out there want to eliminate the competition, and they’ll play dirty if they need to.
The console versions contain all the content from the hit PC version initially released on Steam in 2021, adding in controller support. Earn multiple endings in Story Mode, with three difficulty modes. See just how rough and mean the world of cute, singing, dancing girls can be, embrace a more casual experience, or simply enjoy the management systems with custom settings in Free Mode.
