Bushiroad has announced that the global publisher of Love Live! School Idol Festival All Stars will change from KLab to Bushiroad International starting January 6, 2022. The development and operation of the game will be transferred to a Japanese company called Mynet Games. They are known for acquiring smartphone games from other companies to prolong their service (related article, in Japanese).

The publisher of the Japanese version will change from KLab to Bushiroad, with the development and operation being handed over to Mynet Games on January 6. The publisher for the previous title Love Live! School Idol Festival will remain the same.


The Love Live! series is a multimedia project that depicts the struggles and growth of multiple idol groups. The rhythm action game Love Live! School Idol Festival has been operating since 2013 with over 25 million users in Japan as of September 2019. It follows the story of two idol groups: μ’s and Aqours.

The rhythm action RPG Love Live! School Idol Festival All Stars launched in September 2019 as part of the “PERFECT DREAM PROJECT” to commemorate the 4th anniversary of Love Live! School Idol Project. The game takes place in an alternate timeline where the members of μ’s and Aqours are in the same school year. The number of users exceeded 3 million in October 2019.

KLab, Bushiroad, and Sunrise have been partnering to operate Love Live! School Idol Festival All Stars for a long time now. It’s somewhat interesting that KLab is transferring the publishing rights to School Idol Festival All Stars while keeping the rights to School Idol Project.
