I wonder how difficult the "more players the merrier" focus of the older pop'n music games was to perform without the oversized buttons.

We present this game to the people who love music and game.
Peace.

Unused Model

Hmmm...
To do:
Find a way to render this model.

File DUMMY is actually a .NJA 3D model, which would normally only be seen in Elemental Gimmick Gear. It is dated July 16, 1998, roughly seven months before the game's release, and five before most of the game's files.
