Shining Song Starnova: Idol Empire | Character Design

It’s time to lead idols to new heights in Shining Song Starnova: Idol Empire! Love in Space is back for their seventh project, a business simulator. However, it’s isn’t just any business simulation, you’re handling everything for the girls of Starnova. To clarify, this game does follow the events of the base game: Shining Song Starnova! We definitely recommend checking out that heartwarming adventure first.  After you beat that, consider picking this up. Love In Space truly made something special with their introduction of this idol group. Prior to joining Operation Rainfall as a reviewer, I had the pleasure of playing through the entry and fell in love with the characters.  Their emphasis on character development put the developer on my must-watch list. Furthermore, making this a must-play. You can buy this new title on Steam for $13.49 during the launch week with a special discount!

Could you inform me on what Shining Song Starnova: Idol Empire is all about?

Take the stage in Shining Song Starnova! The girls of STARNOVA signed on to become idols thinking they will become the shining stars of their dreams. Instead, they found themselves trapped in a cutthroat business where only the strongest could survive. Along their path to becoming top idols, they’re forced to come face-to-face with the harsh reality that being a star isn’t as perfect as it seems on TV…

YOU are Mr. Producer – it’s your job to make these girls’ dreams come true! Will you and the girls successfully navigate the industry and become the greatest idols in the nation? Shining Song Starnova is a dramatic and gripping story about the path to stardom. Just remember: Even though it may seem dark, the light at the end is always shining!
