Since August 2016 Rejet has been hinting at the release of “Star Revo” (Star Revolution) and debut of its units. For one year, fans only got a glimpse of the units and some vague description about the game. It seems that the time has come for Rejet to unveil more details about this project including the long anticipated unit releases as Rejet’s summer event is just around the corner.
“Star Revo” (Star Revolution) is the codename for their first handheld game (available for iOS and android). The game will feature a new bundle of seiyuu units among Rejet‘s already extensive roster.
Daisuke Iwasaki (Rejet’s CEO) has announced Rejet‘s summer event (Rejet2017 ENDLESS SUMMER) will take place on 23/08/2017 on Nico Nico Douga. There he plans to unveil new information about this game and many other releases (Dance With Devils and Pythagoras production are just some of the franchises that will have new projects/announcements).
Rejet holds these kinds of events twice a year to announce the upcoming 6 month’s of releases and new projects.
Yesterday, Rejet released online the first key visual:

For those of you that are out of the loop here’s the lineup for each unit.
Star Revolution ☆ 88 Seiza no Idol Kakumei counts with seven units (as of now).
The first unit announced was PURA.net. Despite the odd name (a common feature among Rejet‘s releases), the lineup is exclusively composed of rookie or slightly unknown seiyuu. Keito Okuyama, Shogo Yano, Takuma Nagatsuka and Taichi Ichikawa complete the lineup for this unit.
