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.

Hey everybody! We're back from E3, and boy are our arms tired. From playing video games, but also from making cartoonish flapping motions.
