So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Dev Text

The game has various scattered development text. It mentions PictoChat and other things.

Internal Name

The internal name at the beginning of the US/JP versions is "GIRLSBAND", a likely placeholder title. The EU version updated it more appropriately to "MAKETHEMUSIC".

Regional Differences

To do:
Lots. Korean version hasn't been looked at, for one. Summarize the storyline differences.

In a move utterly baffling to Princess on Ice owners, the US version of this game used its Japanese character cast, while the EU version was westernized again.

The US and Japan title screen backgrounds are little more than a palette swap, with changes to the lighting, but Europe received a new graphic.

Each version changed the text color at the top of the screen. The EU version moved the "menu" button over to the right side, and changed the area name font.

The EU version recolored the instrument icons, swapped the guitar and bass players, and removed the "exit" button.

Other Differences

The European version jumps right to the map when starting a new game, skipping the prologue text.
