Idolmaster 2 Idolm@ster 2 Xbox 360 Little Match Girl

Idolm@ster fans won’t have to wait too long after the new year starts before they can start making singers famous. Namco Bandai has announced that the Idolm@ster 2 Xbox 360 game will be released on February 24, 2010. I hope you have a spare ¥8,800 (~$105), because that’s what one copy will cost. Keep in mind, that’s the price for a standard edition copy, and not some super-secret-deluxe edition.

If it makes you feel any better, the launch copies of Idolm@ster 2 will come with some extra goodies. The box will be sparkly, you’ll get a 765 ID card, four idol pictures and a voucher to download the song “Little Match Girl” for the idols to sing. That should take the sting out of paying so much!

This Japanese PV for Idolm@ster 2 should give you some idea of what to expect.

The game’s full track listing has not been leaked yet. Three songs have been revealed in commercials for the game though. “The World is All One” appeared in the trailer you just watched, “Smoky Thrill” appeared in another and the three Idolm@ster 2 guys appeared in another trailer singing “Alice or Guilty.” I’m sure tracks from the original Idolm@ster, and perhaps even Idolm@ster SP, will appear.

I wouldn’t advise placing an Idolm@ster 2 order yet. Well, if you own a Japanese Xbox 360 you can. But if you own a North American or European system, hold off. We don’t know yet if Idolm@ster 2 will be region-locked or not. Some import Xbox 360 games are region-locked and others are region-free. Both of the previous Idolm@ster Xbox 360 games were region-locked. Yes, it may mean you’ll miss out on getting the launch copy extras, but it also means you won’t get stuck owning a game you can’t play.
