THE iDOLM@STER POPLINKS (アイドルマスター ポップリンクス Aidorumasutaa Poppurinkusu) is an upcoming mobile puzzle game that'll feature idols from all five branches. An Android only open beta test will be held in 2020.
The "POPLINKS FESTIVAL", a mega-live event will be held where idols will be performing as a three-idol unit beyond the boundaries of their respective agencies! As their producer, produce an original unit to reach the top of this live!
The gameplay is a 60 second-long puzzle game of linking same-colored notes by either connecting or looping them together to score as high as possible. The more notes link the higher the points gain. Each unit member has a charge bar. When completely filled up, tap on the idol to activate their skill to clear more notes. Linking notes also fill up the "Hakoyure" meter which acts as a score multiplier of sorts (level 0: 1.0x; level 1: 1.2x; level 2: 1.5x; level 3: 2.0x; level 4: 3.0x). It'll slowly decrease as time progresses. Once it reaches level 1, Fever Time occurs in which the selected song of choice will play and the score multiplier increases as well. Also, the audience meter on the right will completely fill up which will quickly decrease. The goal is to reach the next level before the audience meter runs out. Once it reaches level 4, the player has the opportunity to fill up the unit appeal meter. Once it completely fills up, it can be activated by tapping the rainbow music note on the screen which will fully clear the board and score even more points.
Idols can be scouted from either gacha or offer. Each idol can be equipped with various score-enhancing skills. How to obtain said skills is unknown. The unit can be trained through "Coaching" by allocating stats of choice to make them stronger. Even units with the same members will evolve differently depending on said choice.
Each idol has two attributes. There are a total of 15 attributes in the game. They are: Flower, Fire, Snow, Sun, Rainbow, Light, Ocean, Darkness, Sky, Wind, Moon, Dream, Thunder, Star, and Love. What they each do is currently unknown.
There's also a special CD jacket creator function that allows players to customize their own original CD jacket for their unit by using various assets provided by the game. The finished work can then be posted via social media.
At launch, there will be a total of 75 idols with more to be added monthly. The confirm roster so far is:
- Haruka Amami (Flower/Ocean)
- Chihaya Kisaragi (Sky/Rainbow)
