Got announced today. It’s scheduled to be released this summer. It will be free to play with microtransactions.
Pre registrations are open. Some people who preregistered will get special prizes when the game launches. Seems it plays like a rhythm game during the “Prism rush” part, and then there’s a part called “Eyecatch” where you need to touch the screen when two symbols will overlap to activate the Prism Jump. Seems to be like the original Pretty Rhythm arcade game. You make a team with 4 characters but they don’t do a Prism Show together, they do it one at a time, once a character is finished he baton touches the next character.
There will be story events, coords and Prism Jumps not in the movies. The story events will change according to the characters in your team. Some story events will take place between the two movies, some of which have already been shown in other media. For example there will be a story event about the Christmas Party with Yu writing Dramatic Love, which was already shown in the ova of the limited edition of Kinpri1. For now there’s 12 characters: OTR, the Edel Rose boys, Alexander and Louis. Maybe they’ll add other characters later, like Ryou.
The game’s scneario is written by Tsubota Fumi, who worked on the series in the past and who you should know well if you read this blog as I translated interviews with her.
The last thing is a list of Prism Jumps. Seems each character will have one signature Prism Jump when the game laucnhes, and they plan to add more later.
Maybe it’ll actually be fun if you like rhythm games and you can deal with the microtransactions. I know I definitly won’t play it. Mobage is my worst enemy. And I stopped playing rhythm games for a few years now anyway. So I’ll probably wait for people to upload the events on youtube instead of playing myself.
Current list of jumps:
Kouji:Do Re Mi Fa Slider
(Mion’s jump. I guess they’ll keep making him jump Mion’s jumps? Hachimitsu Kiss was hers as well.)
(Some people don’t like it, including a fanartist I really like who often draws Hiro or Naru pics. They’re the one who does awesome Naru pics each year for her birthday. Above, they tweeted”Please stop making Mihama Kouji do girls’ Prism Jumps!! Plus it’s a Mion sama jump again!!”)
Hiro: Nijuu Ichi Seiki Generation (21st century generation)
Kazuki: Shakunetsu Wave RED ZONE (burning wave red zone)
Shin: Shin Mugen Hug
Yuki: プリズムジャンプ十八番 夢模様朧霞 (I don’t know how to read or translate this)
Taiga: Matsuri da! Wasshoi! Fortune Boy ni Hanataba wo (It’s a festival!! wasshoi!! A flower bouquet s for the fortune boy!! )
(“wasshoi” is an expression shouted during festivals, or shouted by the audience during a baseball match, etc. It’s a shout to encourage people basically.It’s a contraction of “wa wo seou”, which means “we carry Japan”. According to games like the Ryuga Gotoku series, Yakuza people like to say it too)
Kakeru: Honki de date! o mo te na shi First Class he go shotai (A serious date! Inviting you to the entertaining First Class)
Minato: Ore no Dolce, Minato no kimagure Caramelize (My Dolce, Minato’s fickle caramelize)
Leo: Doki? momoiro kurukuru lollipop (hearthrob? Pink spinning lollipop)
Yu: Jewel Spin Zeus(One of the jumps I’m the most hyped to see in Kinpri 2. I hope he has a “Moeru! Grand Zeus Spin!” too)
Louis: Unmei no Synchro Moon Eclipse( Synchro is spelled “シンクロ” in japanese. He has “シン/Shin” in the name of his signature jump just like Shin. Looks like another hint that he’s related to Shin somehow.)
Alec: Koutetsu no 6Pack-Core Wonder! (6Pack-Core Wonder of steel!)
