"You will find the music
more beautiful than kiss."

What is Uta no☆Prince-sama♪?


"The only sweetheart who loves him and music."

Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ (うたの☆プリンスさまっ♪, also shortened as うたプリ, Utapri ) is originally a dating sim game, released in 2010 by Broccoli.

Haruka Nanami, a shy young girl, is a talented and aspiring composer who wishes to create music able to move people’s hearts.
As she enrolls into the elite idol school Saotome Academy in order to fulfill her dreams, she makes many encounters, and will have to choose one of the many aspiring idols who surround her to create the perfect duo...

Due to the success of the original game, a remake called Repeat was made with enhanced artwork, storyline, and game system.

Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ has since then expanded into an enormous franchise targeted towards women, including several game sequels and remakes, a successful anime adaptation in four seasons, an official manga and several anthologies, drama CD series, as well as various fashion collaborations and special anime events and lives featuring the voice actors.

With catchy songs and a talented voice cast featuring the biggest names of the Japanese voice acting industry, you will for sure find a prince who suits your tastes!

How does Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ Shining Live fit in?

201708231454 1
Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ Shining Live doesn’t have a constructed linear plot, like its otome game predecessors.

It is mainly centered around the numerous songs of the franchise in the form of a rhythm game, with additional various character stories and other features to unlock through the gameplay.

It features the two main idol groups of the franchise, ST☆RISH (seven members) and QUARTET NIGHT (four members). In addition, the original female protagonist, Haruka Nanami, isn’t present, nor any of the other characters.

Rather than being plot-driven, Shining Live offers the possibility to interact directly with the idols in your everyday life. In this sense, it can be played without prior knowledge of the franchise for newcomers, or on the contrary, give a new and fresh approach for long-term fans.
