Pop'n Music returns in a big way with the addition of 30 new songs from all new music categories. The new improved battle mode makes 2 player competition even more fun. The internet still plays a big part in this version with "Internet Ranking" and lots of campaigns to participate in.
Gameplay is identical to other games in the series. The Pop'n Music controller features 9 buttons organised in two rows. After you select a song, the screen will show 9 coloured "pop notes" descending towards the timing bar. You must watch the screen, and hit the corresponding coloured buttons in time with the music and the notes on the screen.
