For the otome fans out there, La Corda d’Oro will be getting a mobile game for iOS and Android in 2021, dubbed Starlight Orchestra. It will be brought to you by Koei Tecmo in cooperation with Aniplex, and will be a “training simulation” game. In that vein, you can probably expect it in the vein of Ensemble Stars!. Pre-registrations are also currently running on the official website.
The overview of the game, as translated by Gematsu, is given as follows:
The protagonist is a violinist who failed the music course at Seisou Academy and went on to the general course.
She took each day as it came, but when she reunites with music conductor Ginga Ichinose, she sets her sights on winning the “International Student Orchestra Competition,” where orchestras from all over the world compete.
To fill the seats of the Japanese national team, the protagonist and company go on a journey scouting orchestra members.
No doubt there are instrumentalists out there yet to be offered the opportunity to play a leading role—.
Your partner on this journey? A retro bus like those seen in old films.
Foster your bonds with music as you enjoy local stories, relish in the soul foods of each region, and even shed tears on a twilight beach.
From Seisou Academy in Yokohama to all over Japan, and then the world.
This is the story of high school students who take back their dreams of grandeur.
