Wake Up, Girls! gets a new smartphone game by AltPlus Inc.

A Wake Up, Girls! smartphone game by AltPlus Inc. is currently under development

Social game developer AltPlus Inc. (SUMMER NIGHT MEMORIES, The iDOLM@STER: Side M) announced that it had signed a licensing agreement to develop a native smartphone game for the popular anime "Wake Up, Girls" in a financial results briefing today.

THE iDOLM@STER: SideM social game

Wake Up, Girls is an anime produced by Ordet and Tatsunoko Production and directed by Yutaka Yamamoto of Lucky Star fame. It tells the story of seven young girls aspiring to become idols on the stage of Sendai. A prequel movie, Wake Up, Girls! Shinichin no Idol (Seven Idols) was screened in cinemas and a twelve-episode TV anime was broadcasted in spring 2014. The franchise will be getting a two-part sequel movie releasing in September and December 2015. Check out XDantheManX Online's thoughts on the heartwarming anime here.

Yup, at this rate, it can never end!

CEO of AltPlus, Takeshi Ishii said that the game is currently under development and will be released in the second half of this year, from April to September. The game will adapt the merits and strengths of the original anime.

Wake Up, Girls! ステージの天使 Stage no Tenshi

The first Wake Up, Girls! game, idol-training simulation social game, Wake Up, Girls! ステージの天 Stage no Tenshi launched on Japanese social gaming platform Mobage in January 2014 and was discontinued in December 2014. Being a dedicated WUGナ (WUGner), I hope that this new game will become more successful and attract many new players. The idols have soared in prominence in the past year since the release of their anime and have completed their first live tour last August, with a second live tour set for this July and August.
