Idola has a refined art style that is very loyal to its anime art style which should be as the PSO has been known to have a great hold on their graphics and animation. The background is also very detailed too, making sure that the characters does not look like cut-outs in the game.

The game also has a pretty unique battle mechanic, featuring various mechanics such as Law vs Order mechanic which involved various characters being in one alignment and cannot be paired with someone who has a different alignment than them.

However, there are also neutral characters that can work in both parties. Specialized teams can be made with these strategies as you can also change their alignment if you have max bonded them. The main battle system follows the classic command style that we all are familiar in the JRPG setting, meaning you won't get lost much once you have played these types of games.
