Finally, D3 Publisher have released a few more details about the gameplay, this time about the Judging system.
Getting Through Judging
In Idol Death Game TV, the idols’ goal is to keep winning through judging for each stage Doripaku prepares until they’re the last idol standing. The contents of these judgings consist of various things, such as indispensable luck, dance skills, and performance judging. You can use the Dream Coins you obtain through exploring the mansion and Baku Royales to buy items to give you an edge in getting through judging. Your tension is also important when it comes to judging. You’ll get a plus in your judging valuation if your tension is high, but if it’s low you’ll get a minus. You can use Dream Coins to raise your tension and lower rival idols’ tensions. Additionally, each idol has a genre that they’re best in when it comes to singing and dancing. Since it’s beneficial for a particular judging, ou should go into judgment while accounting for the effect of the specialty genre.
Further more, there are new screenshots released, a selection of which you can find below.
Idol Death Game TV will release in Japan on October 20th. No word on a Western release.
