pop'n music 2 CS (ポップンミュージック2 Poppun Myūjikku 2) is the home version of the 2nd pop'n music installment.



A hidden mode introduced in the home version, consisting of playing through randomly-chosen tracks in one sitting using 9-button gameplay. There are three difficulty settings; beginner with 18 beginner-rated songs and no Ojamas, which will make Mimi your character; half with 18 normal-rated songs and some Ojamas, making Mary your character; full with all excite-rated songs (excluding hidden songs, making the total 37) and all Ojamas, making The King your character. You cannot read the scores you get after each song, and you cannot change your character.

To unlock Marathon mode, you must have 40 songs unlocked in no particular order. Holding the SELECT button and pressing START will end the session, giving your total score and stages you have surpassed. If you manage to complete the mode, you will unlock more stages and characters, along with instructions on how to unlock J-Garage Pop.

  • Completing beginner mode will make Akiba appear on Stage 1.
  • Completing half mode will make Live appear on Stage 2.
  • Completing full mode will make Bee's Eye appear on Stage 3.


Another console-exclusive hidden mode requiring 40 themes, in which you face five stages for each course (10 in total) with a gauge pre-set at the intermediate level, the result opening up three four-panel comics. Each course you complete, depending on its difficulty, will gradually reveal the final image. There are three speed mods available, ranging from normal to very fast. You will be playing as characters that did not make it into pop'n music 2 CS, like Uncle Jam and Charly.


A screen showing all your scores, categorized by Beginner, Party, Excite, Party and Marathon. The Chart option displays your total high score, hyper mode and the amount of times you have played a song.

New Features & ChangesEdit

  • Added Marathon, Records and Survival mode.
  • The first pop'n music game to operate on a Key Disc.
  • 13 new songs since the arcade release, 9 of which are secret.
  • The first appearance of the "hi-speed" option.

Dreamcast and PlayStation DifferencesEdit

  • You can play the Dreamcast version from the get-go using the console-exclusive Arcade Joystick.[4]
  • Characters in the Dreamcast version have more animations, detailed pre-song stances, movements and frames thanks to the system's large amount of RAM.[5] The Pop-kuns have more life to them as well.
  • While the PlayStation version allows up to 2 players, Dreamcast houses 4. However, you cannot plug in 4 controllers at a time.
  • Because of the Dreamcast's lack of loading time, pop'n music 2 DC did not include the shortcut option that made the PlayStation version easier to go through.
  • The Dreamcast has a more detailed ending movie.
  • A spinning disk next to the "now loading" text in the Dreamcast version.
  • No lag and an increased framerate in the Dreamcast version.

  • pop'n music 2 CS was the first mainline game to be compatible with a PocketStation and Visual Memory Unit, depending on the platform. This gave players a more portable experience referred to as "Anywhere pop'n music," where songs could be downloaded through the units on the go. This would continue until pop'n music 4 APPEND DISC, marking the discontinuation of the PocketStation and VMU.[1]
