pop'n music ラピストリア (poppun myūjikku Rapisutoria, translated as pop'n music Lapistoria) is the 22nd pop'n music installment, released on June 25, 2014. Its first location test was held at JAEPO 2014 on February 15, 2014. Another was held between May 30 and June 1, 2014.


Story ModeEdit

Story Mode (ストーリーモード) is a new feature in pop'n music ラピストリア, which allows players to unlock songs, characters, Chara-deco, and more by playing through different sets of stories. Story Mode is chosen after selecting Normal Mode, and it shows the player's story gauge as well. While playing Story Mode several cutscenes are shown before each stage, and the story progresses by playing related songs in the Story Folder and filling the story gauge. Once the gauge is full, a new song can be unlocked.

The main plot is that the Pop-kun have began disappearing from the Pop'n World due to the presence of another world, known as Lapistoria. MZD then gives the four Tsugidoka! characters, Retsu, Fuga, Hiumi, and Rinka lapises, and they are sent to the new world to discover the truth.

There are four different story types: Main Story, Sub Story, Past Story, and Privilege Story. While the Main Story and Sub-Story modes unlock new content, the Past Story mode is for unlocking event songs that were in pop'n music Sunny Park. A list of stories can be seen here.

Course ModeEdit

Course Mode (コースモード) was added on December 22, 2014. It remains largely unchanged from its last appearance in pop'n music 17 THE MOVIE. Each course consists of fours songs which share a single Groove Gauge. Missing notes will cause the gauge to deplete and it will not be refilled between songs. The goal is to pass the whole course without the Groove Gauge fully depleting.

Players with PASELI can continue playing even after their gauge empties, but this only allows them to finish the course and it will not count as a clear. Neither the gauge type or Ojama can be set in Course Mode. A full list of courses can be viewed here.


Chara-Deco (キャラデコ) are small graphics that can be used to decorate the player's character. Chara-Deco are highly varied, consisting of comment bubbles, animated effects, and even characters. Initially they could only be added to your character through the eAMUSEMENT site, but as of July 17, 2014 they can be set in-game. They are accessed by pressing 0 on the keypad during character select. The time limit for customizing is very short, however. Chara-Deco parts can be unlocked by clearing stories, filling a Pop'n Challenge sheet, fulfilling a character's Heart Gauge (sometimes specific characters), or by clearing Course Mode courses. A list of Chara-Deco parts and their unlock methods can be viewed here.

Pop'n ChallengeEdit

Pop'n Challenge (ポップンチャレンジ) is a mini game that appears after the player plays a round of songs. A bronze, silver, or gold sheet appears and a sticker is placed on a certain area of it depending on several prerequisites. There are ten sheets for each sheet type, and an additional eleventh bronze sheet for the Discovery! The Resurrected BEMANI Ruins (Hakken! Yomigaetta BEMANI Iseki 発見!よみがえったBEMANI遺跡) event. Each filled sheet will unlock a different Chara-Deco part.

New Features & ChangesEdit

  • The art style has been redone, with a distinct anime style as opposed to the previous simple style. This change only applies to new and returning characters who receive new songs, and does not affect the animations.
  • None of the new songs have genres, though existing songs keep their genres.
  • Instead of unique backgrounds, a single animated backdrop is used for all songs.
  • Songs no longer display music comments.
  • The scoring ratio has been changed from 10:5:1:0 to 10:7:4:0 for COOL:GREAT:GOOD:BAD, respectively.
  • The only way to get to the Extra Stage now is through PASELI, by collecting the E-X-T-R-A letters from clearing songs.
  • There is no longer a game over, you can continue playing regardless of how many times you fail.
  • The options menu now has eight options: Hi-Speed, Pop-Kun, Gauge Type, Random, Hidden, Sudden, Ojama 1, and Ojama 2. Hi-Speed can now be increased by 0.1 increments, and shows what the new BPM will be with Hi-Speed on. New options were added as well, allowing for the Hi-Speed to be increased up to 10x. Hidden can be toggled mid-song by pressing 0 on the keypad, and Sudden can be toggled with the 00 key.
    • The new gauge types are Easy, Normal, Hard, and Danger. On Easy the gauge will take half as much damage, while Hard doubles the damage. Danger will deplete the entire gauge if a note is missed.
  • There is now a Heart Gauge feature for characters. Certain actions fill the gauge:
    • Picking the character's song: 1 point.
    • Setting them as your main character: 3 points.
    • Playing as them on their birthday: 5 points.
  • Licensed songs no longer receive their own page on the official site.

  • pop'n music ラピストリア is the first main series title to not feature genres.
  • The pop'n music ラピストリア website is the first to not feature song previews or character animations since pop'n music 11, as well as the first to not have any song comments since the first pop'n music. The exceptions are Harmonia and Anelis, which features several comments.
  • pop'n music ラピストリア is the second main series game to use plain backdrops instead of backgrounds, the first being pop'n music 4.
  • Initially, pop'n music ラピストリア did not feature 2P palettes, making it the first main series title with no color options for characters. This was rectified on November 21, 2014 however.
    • Due to a bug, some 2P palettes became available nearly a whole month before their official release, though this was quickly fixed.
  • pop'n music ラピストリア is the first game to feature a Course Mode since pop'n music 17 THE MOVIE.
  • The JAEPO 2014 location test of pop'n music ラピストリア had some noticeable differences:
    • The backdrop was mostly lime green and stayed constant throughout the song, as opposed to the final release where it changes between blue and orange depending on the groove gauge.
    • Text indicators were shown for some animations. A Miss animation would show "MISS" in blue text next to the character, while a Fever animation would show "FEVER!" in orange text. The final release lacks this.
    • The portraits and banners were drawn differently, with duller tones, thicker lines, and a lack of Pop-kuns in the characters' eyes. This is most noticeable in the background for the special JAEPO 2014 site, seen here.
  • pop'n music ラピストリア is the first main series title to change the design of the "pop'n music" logo.
  • The school background of the title screen changes depending on the month to represent various seasons.
    • March through May: The grass is light green with flowers on the bushes and the tree have cherry blossoms.
    • June through August: The trees have all their leaves and the bushes and grass are a vivid green.
    • September through November: The grass and bushes are yellow-green and the trees are orange.
    • December through February: The trees are bare and the bushes and grass are a dull green with some snow.
