Tokimeki Restaurant☆☆☆ Project TRISTARS (ときめきレストラン☆☆☆ Project TRISTARS) is one of the Tokimeki Restaurant☆☆☆ projects that commemorates the social game's fifth anniversary. It was first announced to the public at the virtual reality event, 3 Majesty×X.I.P. LIVE -SPLASH SUMMER FES 2017-.
Makoto Senzaki returns to provide character designs and illustrations.
Get the package version of the game to receive a reversible cover slip and a special PS Vita theme. There are three boxed editions: the 3 Majesty Box, the X.I.P. Box, and the fifth year anniversary box. Both idol centered boxes provide a book of the idol's CG set, character message cards, pins, and bromides. 3 Majesty has messages from London, X.I.P. from L.A. The fifth anniversary box combines the groups' bonuses and adds a drama CD starring both groups for their first overseas recording. The Gamecity Set adds a Prince Rep. fanbook, key holders, and three clear holders. Other bonuses are offered at various outlets. Pre-order any of the boxed versions by December 11, 2017 to receive a serial code for a special date scenario and an idol birthday set.
This game's scenarios continues from the live dramas in 3 Majesty×X.I.P. LIVE -SPLASH SUMMER FES 2017-. Its presentation is meant to be a live documentary, as each member recalls their group origins to a faceless and mute camera man working with the director. Unlike previous instances, Project TRISTARS provides in-depth personal insights and illustrated content for about five months of the groups' formations.
Interaction is minimal and typical visual novel style. The player selects which group story they would like to experience. At select intervals, an individual member can be selected to receive special focus. Characters will have multiple events at each break.
After each narrative part is completed, the group will go on stage for a live performance. Performances use the same coordination and dance sequences at SPLASH SUMMER FES 2017 and the Victory Live concerts from the social game. The song that is played depends on the idol the player chose for the narrative part.
Downloadable content includes cut scenes and live shows.
