It has been announced by Konami Digital Entertainment on Friday that they will be releasing a new smartphone game titled "Tokimeki Idol". This game is a spin-off to the Tokimeki Memorial visual dating sim series which was also developed by Konami that started out back in 1994 and has not been seen since back in 2014. Konami opened a new teaser website with a video giving fans a closer look at the game. Tokimeki Idol is a idol communication game where you'll be living with the games 15 female idols whom are part of a music institute to help them achieve their goal & dreams. The game will be a free-2-play game for iOS & Android mobile devices which will come with microtransaction purchases. The game will also sport a "VR" mode for compatible devices for smartphones & tablets. This new development for the TokiMemo series is built on the concept of gaining a “Tokimeki” (Heartbeat Memorial) from spending your everyday with the girls who are aiming to become idols. Tokimeki Idol marks the return of Konami's Tokimeki Memorial romance sim series. From its initial release back in 1994, Tokimeki Memorial has spawned many game sequels, spin-offs, & adaptations from its original video anime back in 1999 & 2009, a 2006 anime TV series (Tokimeki Memorial ~Only Love~) which was based on the Tokimeki Memorial online game which was also released in that same year, & many more from drama CDs & soundtracks. No game within the Tokimeki Memorial series has ever been officially translated for the western market although it is argued that Brooktown High, another one of Konami's games released for the Playstation Portable back in 2007, was heavily inspired by Tokimeki Memorial and was considered Konami's way of bringing the series over to the western market......not in the way fans would have wanted though as the game was heavily panned as a horrible game. Reporter Rant: Okay seriously......this game is looking too much like The IDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls Starlight Stage. Honestly, I think I can let one out now......FUCK KONAMI for ruining yet another favorite franchise by making it a mobile monetization smartphone game!! #FUCKKONAMI
