In the game, which is still in development, players become mentors and trainers for the Uma Musume, or Horse Girls, as they aim to become both top idols and excellent runners at the “Nihon Uma Musume Training Center Gakuen”. As trainers and mentors, players will have to do their best to make these horse girls debut as both idols and athletes.
