Today, Love Live! School Idol Festival: After School Activity Next Stage hit Japanese arcades. The game is plagued with a bug that makes the characters appear naked.

If that weren’t enough (it’s not, apparently), some characters are also headless (here, probably NSFW). There are also complaints of server issues, with arcade players getting dropped from games.

Since this is an arcade game, the apparent nudity is broadcasted for everyone to see in the arcade.


The game was originally released as an iOS title, which was developed by KLabGames and published by Bushiroad. Square developed and published the arcade version.

Love Live! School Idol Festival’s official Twitter announced that the game was undergoing “urgent maintenance” to remedy the problems.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored five books, including most recently, Japanese Whisky: The Ultimate Guide to the World's Most Desirable Spirit.
