Early Game Testing
The screenshot shows the testing of the game. It could be a rework of another game.
At the top we see the color palette and where the sprites are placed. The overlay is up to date, but some borrowed resources are used in the background. We see the audience and the main stage with character silhouettes. Skill effects are shown by all 5 selected cards appearing below the board.
The characters and cards in the screenshot are from the mobile game: THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls: Starlight Stage.
Screenshots of various areas are scattered throughout the files. By their filenames they were probably there to show the completed progress of decorating them.

To test the acquisition of cards of different levels, Ichika, Saki and Shiho cards were used. In place of card's name is '冠名最大10文字想定' (Chinese for 'Assuming the title can be up to 10 characters'). One of the screenshots has the resolution data on it.

|後半星3サンプル (Late 3 Star Sample)|

In the files is preview for "The Intense Voice of Hatsune Miku" without the silence on the end.
There used to be a custom music track test_bgm that played during story scenarios.
There are 6 alternative variants of note hit sounds. Compared to the original one, they lack other audio files.
There are two unused areas in the game demo.
Following the shops seen in area_legacy, this could be the place where you separately buy costumes, accessories, perhaps upgrade buffs for the game and so on.
You can identify places such as: PIZZA350, NEGIラーメン (NEGI-ramen), Grafitti, CARDS, Mr.BURGER, Le guance di Angel (Italian for 'Angel's Cheek'), Lemon, Black Tea, Three9, Bishopl Light, DRIGHT, 本Bookstore, Daig, Planet, 100, コミック (Comic Shop), Galaxy GAME station, CREPE PEARIS
On the monitor visible in the area_sample we see the placeholder of one of the card.
There are also a few shop boards probably associated with the area_legacy map.
Area2 (Main Street) once had a sprite of one of the buildings with a grammatical error.
Interestingly, the Mr.BURGER restaurant that used to be in the area_legacy is visible in the scenery of this area.
There is a proposal for a device icon. Because of its name, it could be used to take the user to an online forum or to private messages directly from the map.
To get from one SEKAI to another, the player would have to switch songs in the playlist. An example of this can be seen in old videos of the game.
There is an additional Miku model in the game demo.
Since it is named the same as the Virtual Singer Miku body model in the files, it may have been decided to change the design to something more along the lines of her original box-art.
Its highlight map particularly stands out from the others by using blue instead of red and green to store data for effects.
A fragment of this costume can also be seen in an early illustration of Miku.
Loading a model in game will force a T-Pose on it. It lacks visibility switches, causing it to not appear back in 3DMVs such as 'Miku' and 'Ghost Girl'.

There is one unused set of cards in the game files.
Despite the abbreviated folder name, it appears that this was the first card for a character with index 19 (now Ena). Perhaps it is the main character of the game, Ichika.
The character shown in the trained version does not appear currently in the game.
|Normal version||Trained version|
There exists an unused 1koma depicting Minori and Ichika in form of a full image and a cropped sprite.
Along with close-ups of the card characters, a screenshot showing Miku is included. The graphic style is reminiscent of BanG Dream! Girls Band Party!, suggesting that the same team may be working on this game. This is most likely the version for the Virtual Singer unit. A custom 3D model was created for this costume.
There are three gacha in the game's demo, despite not being able to make any use of them.
- First gacha corresponds to the first gacha of the game.
- Second gacha offers 4-star card intake.
- Third gacha offers 3-star card intake.
The illustrations of the last two show early character card drafts, and the backgrounds, probably an early concept of the MoreMoreJump unit. Presumably in order from left: Miku, Haruka, Airi, Minori, and Shizuku.
Rhythm Game Overlay
There is a version of the static clipped lifebar. It was probably in use before any code was developed for it.
Visual Novel Overlay
In old videos of the game, you can see that the chat box with text and related objects were slightly different.
A zoomed out version of one of Ichika's stickers appears in the timeline_test screen effect.
Early placeholders of the default outfits showed the models in an A-Posing state. Compared to the current style, they are on a dotted background. The skin and some parts of the models have been erased (some manually).
There are placeholders for two accessories without backgrounds. All three variants are duplications.
There are placeholders for accessories marked with なし (None).
These are placeholders for accessories. At this point, instead of renders, there was a drawing of two star-like earrings.
|From head02_0001 to head26_0001|
There are placeholders created to test characters' hairstyles.
テスト用寧々ヘア(Nene's hair for testing)
テスト用えむヘア(Emu's hair for testing)
テスト用司ヘア(Tsukasa's hair for testing)
テスト用彰人ヘア(Akito's hair for testing)
There is a version of the current render of Ichika's costume, but on the old dotted background.
From body_0001 to body_0021 along with other variations are thumbnails of the first 21 custom outfits from the game demo. Everything is currently under the name "cos_XXXX".
The textures used in the "At The God's Mercy" 3DMV's scene have not been baked. After removing the transparency, for example, we see that the mountains have a bit more formation and the fence has an expanded pattern. The screenshots used in the decorations come from the original music video.
|Name||With Transparency||Without Transparency|
There also happens to be some unmapped details below the scene's screen texture.
In many of the gachas featuring custom costumes, the performers are stiffened from the upper torso.

3DMV on YT
Wherever there was a 3DMV preview on the game's official channel, the effect of custom outfits changing skin color depending on the character has been disabled, leaving the skin in greyscale.
|with As You Like||with Ultramarine Hymn|
Early Song Covers
The first trailers for the game featured a slightly different voicetrack. This includes different Vocaloid tuning and additional voice sound effects.
