Idol Manager coming to PS5, PS4 and Switch in August

Idol Manager is going to be released on PS5, PS4, and Switch on August 25th Playism has announced. As you may guess from the name, players take on the role of a manager in the Idol industry working to make stars of your clients at talent agency. This will not be all fun and games as players will have to deal with competition, gossip magazines, and other elements that will try to bring you and your idols down.

The full description for Idol Manager reads, “Idol Manager is a business sim about conquering the entertainment industry using any means you deem necessary. You take on the role of manager at a small (but growing!) talent agency. As you cultivate and train the newest generation of young pop stars, you’ll have to decide who to hire and who to fire, who gets promoted when things go well and who gets reprimanded when things get sour.

The personal lives of these young celebrities are a part of your business, and the life of a pop star isn’t always a happy one. Their crowning personal achievements can be your greatest commercial successes, but their emotional meltdowns and PR nightmares can spell financial disaster for your company. It’s not just the idols you have to worry about. The world is full of gossip magazines, super fans, and rival groups, all thirsty for a scoop on the latest scandal. There’s a lot of people who want to tear you down and are willing to play dirty, but try not to let it get to you. It’s not personal, it’s business.”

The management element delves into all aspects of the industry from coaching the talent in singing and dancing, CD production, advertising the business, dealing with the day to day running of the office to make sure the business is profitable, and finally dealing with the complex relations that will surface as outside forces try to influence your business.
