Love Live! School Idol Project Series is a Japanese multimedia project created by Hajime Yatate and Sakurako Kimino and co-produced by Kadokawa through ASCII Media Works; Bandai Namco Arts through music label Lantis; and animation studio Bandai Namco Filmworks under the “Sunrise” brand.
The game has two gameplay modes—”Story” and “Live”— featuring all nine members of the idol groups μ’s and Aqours. Players acquire a score in the rhythm “Live” mode, in which they tap circles at the proper time in order to receive a high score that can be placed on the leader board. These songs are divided into 4 difficulties: Easy, Normal, Hard, and Expert. Another difficulty called “Master” features songs that are only available for a limited time and include rhythm icons where players have to swipe their fingers on the screen during some songs.
