Go Voyeur with New Idolm@ster 2 Trailer and Screens

on July 25, 2011 6:30 PM

Idolm@ster 2 is taking Japan by storm…again. Namco Bandai has been throwing out media left and right, from the game’s first screens in Famitsu to the television spot they were broadcasting all over the nation. Today we have some more screens for the title, as well as a full trailer.

Also of interest is the new bonus game included with the special edition of the title. This mini-game lets you be a voyeur and take pictures of the idols…on the beach. And, you know what that means, right? Tell me I don’t have to spell it out for you. This leads me to talk about something else that’s interesting with this title – the PS3 version will get a different CERO rating depending on whether you buy the regular edition or the special box.

Because this mini-game lets you take pictures of the idols that you’re raising to stardom in their bikinis, the rating for that edition only got bumped up a bit. While anyone can see girls in bikinis by just going to the beach, apparently allowing the player to adjust the angle to suit their desires (in more ways than one) pushes things a bit too far. The regular version of Idolm@ster 2 gets a CERO B rating, while the special edition is slapped with the stricter CERO C rating.

Hit the break to check out the goods – there’s the full-length trailer, some new in-game screens and some packaging shots of the various editions.
