Idolm@ster 2 Being Ported to the PS3, Finally Becomes Importable

Fine, I’ll bite. I read about this months ago, but it was released solely on the Xbox 360, which means its very tough to import. Idolm@ster 2 is an idol-career-building-anime-sim-rhythm title from Namco Bandai that was released back in February. This week in Famitsu news broke that it will finally be ported over to the PlayStation 3. What’s unusual about this is it seems like a game that wouldn’t go over too well on the Xbox 360. Not because of the “Western crowd” that we typically talk about, because the game wasn’t released outside of Japan, but simply because the Xbox 360 has an abysmal presence across the Pacific.

Needless to say, when it releases on the PS3 on October 27th it will finally be easily importable. Plus, those who were forced to wait will be treated to all sorts of extra content that you had to purchase in the form of DLC for the original version. It will retail for ¥7,980 (regular version) or ¥19,800 (for the extra special super limited edition box). To get an idea of what the game is all about, hit the jump and check out one of the preview videos from Idolm@ster 2.
