Happy Elements released the 1st animated video for the upcoming Ensemble Stars!! rhythm game.
The Ensemble Stars! franchise is going to release a rhythm game in a date to be determined. The announcement was made later in 2018 and up until now, little to no details had been unveiled about the anticipated release of this game.
A short performance video of Trickstar‘s “ONLY YOUR STARS!” was released. This performance had already been teased in 2018 in a short promotional/announcement video.
Now, this new video is the 1st of what seems to be a series of short performance videos that might be released in the upcoming months to build up momentum for the game’s release.
Ensemble Stars!! (purposely with two exclamation marks) puts aside the idol grooming concept that is part of the current Ensemble Stars!‘s game and embraces a rhythm game concept. The game will feature a variety of songs to perform and include 3DCG animated music videos as shown in the promotional video released in 2018 and through Trickstar‘s performance video.
According to the information available in the official website, Ensemble Stars!! is a new stage for the franchise’s units. The franchise will have two games the BASIC – original Ensemble Stars! game – and the MUSIC – rhythm game to be launched (rumored for 2019 release). In the BASIC version players will continue to enjoy the game’s story and events, in the MUSIC version players will get to experience a completely new world for this franchise.
Data won’t transfer between the two games, once again putting emphasis that these are two distinct games.
It is mentioned that the rhythm game part is going to be accessible even for those that aren’t too dexterous or familiar with rhythm games.
More details are going to be unveiled through Ensemble Stars!‘s official twitter account and website. Make sure to follow those for a more up-to-date situation about the game’s release and features.
