Today on “Rejet2017 ENDLESS SUMMER“, event broadcasted on Nico Nico Douga, fans got some concrete details about “Star Revo” (Star Revolution) but it still seems that a lot is still shrouded in mystery. This is our report on today’s findings!
“Star Revo” (Star Revolution) is the codename for their first handheld game (available for iOS and android). The game will feature a new bundle of seiyuu units among Rejet‘s already extensive roster.
This is our report after compiling all information about this series.
During the special “Star Revo” corner hosted by Yuto Suzuki and Toshiyuki Toyonaga, today’s resident MCs, it was announced that “Star Revo” will, indeed, be released this year. The handheld rhythm game that Rejet has been teased for almost two years will finally see the light of day.
Present during this event were Yoji Ikuta, Genki Okawa, Junta Terashima, Yoshitaka Yamaya, Daiki Abe, Taichi Ichikawa, Kenta Zaima, Tsubasa Sasa, Tatsuya Tokutake, Yuya Nakada, Toshinari Fukamachi, Eijin Fudemura, Shougo Yano and Yuki Yonai.
The game’s pre-registry is now live on Star Revo‘s official website – HERE. The game is set to be released this year.

The game will have story mode and rhythm part – a little bit of gameplay was shown featuring the unit PURA.net. The gameplay snippets didn’t have sound. Toshiyuki Toyonaga then tested the game with PURA.net‘s song “Horoscope“.
A new unit was announced during broadcast.
MOBIUS consists of Nobuhiko Okamoto and Ryota Osaka.
To wrap up the broadcast it was released a promotional video.
No music related news were announced.
Earlier this month, Rejet released online the first key visual:

For those of you that are out of the loop here’s the lineup for each unit.
Star Revolution ☆ 88 Seiza no Idol Kakumei counts with eight units (as of now).
The first unit announced was PURA.net. Despite the odd name (a common feature among Rejet‘s releases), the lineup is exclusively composed of rookie or slightly unknown seiyuu. Keito Okuyama, Shogo Yano, Takuma Nagatsuka and Taichi Ichikawa complete the lineup for this unit.
