CYBIRD Reveals Autumn Release for Actor-Training Game A3!

A3 title

On Saturday, CYBIRD hosted the A3! talk panel when they revealed more information about the upcoming release.

Update: It was brought to my attention that A3!’s Japanese website refers to their game as an “actor-trainer” and not an “idol-raiser.” I have updated the article title to reflect this.

In A3!, the player becomes a theater company president and general manager with the power to cast ikemen troupe members. The main story fully-voiced and contains four troupes, Spring, Summer, Winter and Autumn, that you can train up to their fill potential!

Saturday at Anime Expo, CYBIRD, who will be publishing the game for English-speaking otome fans, released more information about the game.

First off, they made it very clear that the game is NOT otome, but an actor-trainer joshimuke, which means it’s a game that targets women. They also introduced the character who players will be, Izumi. She is one of the best and most popular heroines in joshimuke.

Not only is the heroinie one of the best, it is widely agreed that the story is also really good. Some character have heart-breaking backstories and Hiroto, the English producer said that he ended up liking very character in the game. There are a few characters that are very popular in the fandom.

Finally, it was announced that they are shooting for a Fall 2019 release. They asked that everyone be patient with them as they are giving it there all because they really love the game.
