“Dream C Club” Hostess Seduction Game for Xbox 360

Bandai-Namco, along with publisher D3, are looking to release a new hostess dating simulation game for the Xbox 360 next summer. Strangely, some of the characters bear more than a passing resemblance to the idols of Idolmaster….

The game, entitled “Dream C Club”, consists of the player interacting with various young hostesses during weekends off from work.

When not relaxing with the girls, the player can choose to work at a part time job during the weekdays, check your email and go shopping for gifts to give them with the money you earn. You can even persuade them to cosplay (presumably with money).

A highly realistic dating/hostess courting game then. And one with a freeter protagonist… It’s not clear if exorbitant special payments will eventually allow the protagonist to visit a love hotel with his commercial paramour.

A number of the girls bear an uncanny resemblance to the ones found in Namco’s IdolM@ster series:

The latest Yakuza game also looks set to offer this sort of “romantic” action

    Another one in my collection after Idolm@ster L4U !

    Well I can't read Japanese characters so I'll go from coordinations:

    2nd Pic:

    Red head: Reminds me of Suzumiya Haruka....Well Haruka...
    Riho: Yep, like basilio mentioned, she looked like the genderbended Koizumi Itsuki.

    3rd Pic:

    Rui: Somewhat resembles Cattleya or Miyuki.
    Nao: What more should I say ?
    Ami look-alike: The same again ?
    Chihaya look-alike: LOL~~
    Miss Megane ?: Kinda reminds me of Saki from Hayate no Gotoku
    Mian: Fate + Yami + Akita Neru + Hatsune Miku ?

    Yeah after spending all that just to get a Japanese 360 for im@s I'm definitely going to have to get this one.

    I still have yet to get some of the latest songs on the market for L4U though...

    The idolmaster girls... looks amazingly similar. Esepcially Nao/Makoto...

    And is it just me or does Rui have a slight resemblance to Louise of Zero no Tsukaima?... pink hair & name. Not the size of her breasts though (lol the Rui one looks huge).

    And the Mio character... I swear to god, I saw the same kind of hairstyle along with the hair colour and glasses in an eroge somewhere... the character in question was a maid, too.

    The Mian character is just kinda generic... I've done some searching before and came up with like 10 female characters from anime/eroge that have blond hair and are twin tails. And have the same face shape. It's like a trend or something...

    The Amane character looks very familiar.. but just can't remember where I've seen her before... and the Riho character looks like Koizumi genderblended =P...

    But yah, I don't think this would become an H-game though... especially since Koshimizu Ami and Gotou Yuuko are in it (and using their actual names/stage names)...

    Louise does have an older sister, of which she appears to be a near exact clone of. Except the older sister is the happy / nice / quiet type, with huge boobs to boot (or grab, if you will).

    Lol oh right, almost forgot about Louise's eldest sister. Of course, of course. But yah, Louise's sister is the happy type, and this character looks kinda, not so happy? Still, both of them have relatively large breasts.

    I like the one that looks like a boy. She looks Makoto-ish. Come to think of it, Makoto also looks like a boy.

    Is there something wrong with me?

    This and im@s reminds me why I love my 360. As a chihaya fan, I really want to drink with my chihaya...

    Thank goodness I bought my 360.

    Riho is a D3 trademark chick apparently of all the girls, she has appeared in other series that was lets just say sexually suggesive.

    And being Bandai-Namco, it'll be region locked despite being Japan only, just like the IM@S games. Fuckwits.

    Passing resemblance? These ARE the idolmaster girls. Consider it Idolmasters The Epilogue. You know, when you're 18~19 years old and are now considered a washed up idol so you either become a hostess or a prostitute or both. Don't let the different names throw you off either, it's not like a hostess would use her real name at work. Man Namco sure knows this market down pat.

    true that most japanese gamers prefer other consoles than the Xbox 360..
    the Ps2 is the perfect example of this it just refuses to die!

    Indeed, for good reasons. The new games are 90% crap. I own all the new consoles and many old too and I find myself only playing PS2 lately.

    You can pretend the purple haired girl with ribbons is Haruka with longer hair.

    Well it IS Bandai-Namco.

    I'm more surprised they threw in that Hatsune Miku clone on the far right in the lineup.

    Unlikely, I have yet to see any eroge being officially released on any console.

    thing that would let the game be better. I'd second that, though there might be achievement stuff, since it's for 360. and honestly, 3 of those idols are not exactly what i'm looking for. Too bad i'll eventually have to bang 'em aswell.
    If they're ever going to let you "create" your own idol, they'd hit the perfection.
