Idol Master downloads begin, otaku rejoice

Already established as a cult classic in Japan (albeit with a slightly creepy cult), NamcoBandai's Idol Master has moved a sizeable number of players from dingy arcades back to their dingy bedrooms. And now, thanks to yesterday's introduction of downloadable items, there's even more fodder (we're not saying for what) available to players of the Xbox 360 version of this teen girl coaching sim. Schoolwear (pictured), kimonos and other outfits are priced at 1000 Microsoft Points, as there seems to be a premium for such garb, while leopard skin skirts and equestrian accessories (whips not included) are priced at a more reasonable 500 points per item. Probably the best line to take on all this: no comment.
