Idolm@ster Corner

The Idolm@ster franchise is one of Bandai Namco's most recent and currently-running music game series, where the players are asked to take the role of a talent agency producer and help bring the game's idols to celebrity as either solo artists or part of special units. Started with an arcade title, the series has soon branched into the console gaming territory over the course of 10 (and counting!) years with tens of games, while also spawning miscellaneous media from it in form of audio/video merchandise, radio shows and anime/movie transpositions. While the games' reception had their highs and lows, the franchise as a whole is currently boasting a 10 billion Yen profit as of late 2013 researches.

Being a music-based franchise on itself, the Idolm@ster songs have always been welcomed additions to the Taiko no Tatsujin series, slowly but surely becoming the most represented external videogame franchise with over 80 songs over the course of 10 years, with some of the series' first iconic songs appearing shortly after their arcade debut on the 7th Taiko arcade and the 2nd Anime song compilation for PS2. As the Idolm@ster franchise has hit its 10th year, special tie-in events made its presence in Taiko gaming even more prominent, both for the arcade (Taiko 15th Anniversary-related collaborations) and the console scene, leading to the release of the Must Songs twin games, celebrating some of the series' most iconic tracks that have been made along the years.

For the sake of this trope corner, all of the Im@s tracks appearing on Taiko games will be grouped by their credited source on either the Must Songs Ps Vita games or the closest-released title of the series (always in chronological order), thus separating said media in the two universally-recognized chronological groups for the series: the 1st Generation series -counting games that are related to the original arcade videogame- and the 2nd Vision series, regarding the lore/world of the series depicted in Dearly Stars and the series' direct sequel.
