YouTube user Red’s 3rd Dimension Gaming imported the Vita title Idol Death Game TV and released a lengthy gameplay video that covers the games entire first chapter. To learn more about the game, you can read the below summary. No word on if this title will be getting a English localization in the future but it is currently out now in Japan.
Introducing Idol Death Game TV, a new #PSVita action adventure title from D3 Publisher and Witchcraft, with a titular twist! The game will have players choose the role of one of many of the idols from the ‘Project 47’ group as they compete in the event called “Dream of Dreams,” where the center idol is chosen – and the losers die. Within ‘#Project 47′ there are smaller units, such as ‘Team Happy’ and ‘Team Smile.’ In total the group has over 200 members, however it is currently unknown how many of those will be playable characters. The idol you choose will change the course of the story, (possibly very similar to Lost Dimension) as well as improve the replayability of the title.
#IdolDeathGame TV is broken down into exploration, judging, and ‘Death Concert’ elements. During exploration players will look for useful items throughout each stage, as well as exchange information with other ‘Project 47’ idols. Player interactions may have the effect of altering your confidence or ‘spirit,’ or doing the same to the other idols. Giving yourself an edge in these interactions will be important for the ‘Death Concerts.’ Players will be then assessed on their dancing and overall performance, the most logical way to determine the ultimate idol, as well as a staple of the idol genre. During these ‘Death Concerts’ the idols that didn’t make it through to the final judging are killed. There are currently hints from the publisher that idols can be brought back to life through a series of trials.
