carpal tunnel rhythm game with “episodes” that let your man idol talk to you. You win points every time you play a song that you can spend in the shop to purchase clothes for your idol ikemens as well as different backgrounds for the music game screen. Not only can you play this without knowing any Japanese, it’s super cheap!
I personally suck at rhythm games so yeah….But the music was soooo good I had to keep trying!
There are 3 modes: Easy, Hard, Pro. If you successfully get an A or higher 3x in one of the difficulty settings, you unlock an episode with your idol ikemen. You also unlock new songs, character accessories, and new backgrounds by successfully completing a song.
To unlock cross songs like Original Resonance, you must play through a song of the characters involved in that cross. Once you do, BAM! you’ve unlocked greatness.
Since I haven’t played the otoges I had no clue wtf was going on in these episodes (short little interactions with one of the idols) bcuz they kept talking to Haruka like smt had happened between them. Especially Masato and Tokiya-like damn, they were deredere. So just go into this thinking you’ve already captured the idol ikemens and you’re good!
But then…as these episodes progressed I realized HOLY CRAP Haruka practically doesn’t exist. They mention her yes, but really you’re watching these idols through a tv screen…and so it seems like you’re some himono onna who’s stalking them. So Haruka may have a default name but she sure as heck isn’t there. YOU are the lonely rabid fangirl watching their every move…
You can tell they’re pushing the advertising for the Uta Pri CD’s really hard with this game. Not only are the songs not complete (you get just enough to make you ❤ it and wish the whole song was there) but it came with this:
Practically everything has English in this game. The menu items, the music screen. It’s all in English!! You’ll only have a few instances of Japanese but it’s so intuitive you wouldn’t even need to know what hiragana are lol. So no language barrier. Pick this cheap game up.
It’s a cute little music game that makes you realize how much the otoges need to come to the vita like RIGHT. NOW. And that’s happening! ^^ I’m not big on music games but this one was fun and come on guys, the songs were catchy af. And my husbando was here. Singing. And I could dress him up. Just HNNNNGGGG
*All of the songs in this game are listed at the end of the video above.
Definitely worth picking up. The episodes aren’t too hard to get the gist of. The Japanese is pretty basic and it’s mainly about the idols getting together to discuss random things like how Tokiya loves red candy. And if that’s not happening, you somehow are ntring every dude in this game. You thought Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side was daring enough to let you date 2 guys at once? How about dating every. Single. Idol.
Pretty cheap too! If you want to purchase Uta Pri Music 3 through my link, you can help support my blog! Thank you so much!!
