Idolm@ster May Not Come to the West, Idolm@ster Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Planes Will.

Idolm@ster is a series that probably will never make it to the west, due to the fact that licensing rights of the music tracks make the localization process extremely messy. That said, a small part of the series will make it this side of the Pacific ocean, in the form of a DLC pack for Ace Combat: Assault Horizon that will be released on November the 30th.

The DLC will include new skins for the F-15E Strike Eagle, the F-22A Raptor and the Su-33 Flanker-D featuring respectively Idolm@Ster characters Chihaya Kisaragi, Haruka Amami and Miki Hoshii. If you fancy flying and fighting on planes decorated by colorful anime girls, this may be your chance.

This isn’t actually the first time that Idolm@ster characters are featured on the planes of the Ace Combat series. Similar DLC was made available for Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation as well.

You can see a rather large gallery of the new skins past the cut:
