The world will never know how many aspiring preteen figure skaters this piece of shovelware masquerading as a rhythm game put off the sport forever.

The DS being the DS, it got a sequel (Diva Girls: Divas on Ice) and a Wii port anyway.

The Japanese version of the game features a completely different set of characters from the European/American version. The European/American version features Kelly, Alyssa, Madison, and Gabrielle, who also appear in the sequel Diva Girls: Divas on Ice. The Japanese version replaces the characters with the same quartet featured in (the non-European versions of) the otherwise-unrelated game Rockin' Pretty: Mahiru/Mai, Kanami/Kara, Mio, and Riko/Reena.

Aside from names and appearances, the Japanese version replaces each character's favorite color with their blood type. The birthdays are the same in both versions, but the Japanese version removes the corresponding zodiac signs.

The title screen was reworked to accommodate the aesthetics of the new Japanese logo and altered character designs.

Ending CGs

To do:
Putting the CGs for Mahiru and Kelly here for now, the others will have to be added.

Both versions of the game feature a total of twelve endings, three for each character (A bad ending, a normal ending and a good ending). All of them are changed between the US/EU and JP versions, with the JP illustrations having much more effort put into each of them.

Company Logos

To do:
Retake in native resolution.

The logos that appear before the title screen are different between versions.

  • The European version displays a 'Licensed By Nintendo' screen on the top screen first, then the logo for 505 Games on the top screen and the logo for Arc System Works with a link to their Japanese website on the touch screen.
  • The US version displays the same 'Licensed by Nintendo' on the top screen and the logo for Aksys Games on the touch screen, then the logos for 505 Games on the top screen and Arc System Works (sans the website link) on the touch screen.
  • The Japanese version displays the Arc System Works logo first, then the logo for "ドリーム パレット" (Dream Palette), the franchise consisting solely of this game and Rockin' Pretty (not counting the other Diva Girls games). Both screens only display logos on the top screen and nothing on the touch screen.
