Idol Manager

Idol Manager has a release date on Steam, revealed by the trailer shown during the Indie Live Expo 2021: the game in which we will have to manage a group of Japanese idols will be available starting from July 27th.

The controversial world of idols has made several capatine in video games, think for example of one of the campaigns of Yakuza 5, in which you find yourself in the role of the young Haruka, determined to become an idol overcoming countless tests.

In the case of Idol Manager, however, we will have to deal with a real management system in which we play the role of manager for a small Japanese talent agency and we will have to make it grow over time.

+9 How ? By taking care of the professional growth of idols, finding talented new girls and firing those who are not getting results, or even mouthing their private life when it can be a hindrance to business.

Of course we will have to deal with it. dealing with complicated situations, scandals, glossy magazines, overly fond fans and times when we will have to make difficult decisions: everything to achieve success.
