«©NCSX» Japan is a land of idols. Year in and year out, the public appetite for idols is sated with a constant stream of fresh new faces who join their more seasoned cohorts. The shelf life of an idol is generally fleeting and turnover is rapid due to the fickle nature of the fan base and their constant hunger for newer, younger, and/or different.

Computer-generated idols and the games dedicated to managing such idols are not new. On the Playstation, there was Debut 21 and Dreamcast fans got to manage talent in Super Producers. Namco's Idolmaster from last year has been one of the more popular idol management simulations in the past few years and the sequel released today looks to repeat a commanding performance.

In Idolmaster: Live For You!, players get to manage a troupe of idols who are all invariably chipper, lively, and somewhat lovely. As a producer who's goal is to create entertaining shows, your duties include playing a button-tapping rhythm game that's evocative of Taiko no Tatsujin where the onscreen cues must be hit as they reach the target area so that the girls dance with spirit and verve. You'll also choose the proper showgirl garb for flashy stage visuals.

When playing the rhythm game, the four possible grades for each cue hit are: PERFECT, GOOD, NORMAL, and OKAY. Your combo strings are also counted and a voltage grade is granted after every performance.
