The first Love Live! School Idol Festival mobile game started service in Japan on April 15, 2013, eventually opening worldwide on May 12, 2014. All the servers eventually combined by June 2021 with English players on the same server as Japanese players. The game began with μ's and brought Aqours into the fold in July 2016, even being the starting point to what would become Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club with some of the more popular N (normal) cards.
An arcade game Love Live! School Idol Festival: After School Activity was spawned from the original mobile title in December 2016, which was then ported to PlayStation 4 in December 2021.
