E3 09: Konami announces Pop 'n Music for the Wii

11:40 AM on 06.04.2009 // 8BitBrian

Pop 'n Music is one of those arcade games that is just hardcore. I don't have the the ability to focus as well as those people do, so I flounder quickly. But that's partially because I don't get enough practice with it. Thankfully, Konami has come to the rescue, and announced that they're bringing Pop 'n Music to the Wii.

The game is set to launch this Fall with a "variety of original and licensed music," although they don't quite give hints to any of the songs that'll be included -- the only extra info we've got is that there'll be competition and battle modes for you and your friends. Oh, and there's full Mii integration! I bet you're super-excited about that!

Anyways, check out the press release after the jump and the screens in our gallery.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - June 3, 2009 - Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., today announced pop' n music is being developed for Wii™. Marking the first time in North America, pop' n music has a rich history in Japan that includes 15 console games as well as arcade iterations.  This rhythmic game for all ages allows for players to play entertaining music with exciting graphics. With easy and intuitive controls, pop' n music takes full advantage of the Nunchuk™ and Wii Remote™ as you move up, down, left and right to original and licensed music.

pop' n music is also great for entertaining as it offers a robust feature set which includes a variety of game challenging game modes including co-op and battle modes to play against friends. In addition, you can customize your experience by selecting sounds, characters and stages. Even your Mii™ will be integrated in the experience as it reacts to the gameplay through its emotions.
