Behold, Square Enix’s Idol Fantasy. The boy band smartphone sim is headed to iOS and Android this summer in Japan. It features character designs from Tetsuya Nomura, among others. No word yet about an international release.
I admit I’m somewhat disappointed that this is not the kind of soulless cashcrab, in which the different Final Fantasy Boys star in an idol band - stupid, but alluring. But the kind of soulless cash grab that it actually is... meh, it’s probably as much a joyless f2p grind as the UtaPri game, without the fun of poking Squall or Zidane in the ribs.
