Para Para Paradise 2 is a music game where the player must bust out some Para Para moves - a type of Japanese synchronised dance. The player stands on an octagonal platform with motion sensors surrounding them, and must perform moves in time with the music.
The gameplay is similar to other Konami music games. As a song plays, arrows appear on the screen. Players must move their arms and legs in time with the corresponding arrows, with the motion sensors detecting their movements and relaying this to the game.
There are 2 different modes - Para Para Mode, which guides the arrows through an actual routine for the song, and Freestyle Mode, which has 3 difficulty options (Normal/Hard/Expert).
