pop'n music 7

Release Information

  • Release date: November 22nd, 2001.

General Information / Changes

  • First pop'n music game to keep track of GREATs, GOODs, and BADs at the bottom of the screen in every mode.
  • The BPM for a song is now listed once again on the music select screen.
    • First pop'n music game to list the BPM of a song during the song.
    • Also the last arcade pop'n music game to list the BPM of a song at the music select screen.
  • Character animations (MISS/FEVER/etc.) no longer begin until a character's neutral animation has finished, both for player and rival characters. This has since been consistent in the franchise.
    • In previous games, hitting notes on a certain grade (GREAT, GOOD, or BAD) would change the animations instantly.
    • According to staff member shio on the pop'n music 8 Q&A page, this was done due to the increased note density of more recent pop'n music games hurting the eyes of players due to the constant switching of animations.
    • She also notes it was done for a secondary reason; to show more animations for high-level players, as opposed to them only seeing FEVER animations for an entire song on the left, and nothing but the MISS banner/animations for their rival on the right.
  • First pop'n music game that shows you your combo right above the pop-kun you hit, as opposed to the center of the screen.
  • wac starts writing original music for the series.
  • TOMOSUKE makes his pop'n music debut, as does Shoichiro Hirata.
  • Only mainline pop'n music game to feature Hiroki Koga as a sound director.
  • All licenses from pop'n music 6 received distinct MISS backgrounds.
  • The official web site for pop'n music 7 is the first one since pop'n stage which shows a picture of the character in a song and their background in that song.
  • The soundtrack is the first to include songs from console versions made two games prior to the current arcade version. In this case, the pop'n music 7 soundtrack contains songs from pop'n music 5 CS. This trend continued with the soundtracks for the next six games, when the pop'n music 14 FEVER! AC ♥ CS pop'n music 12 いろは & 13 カーニバル album ended the trend.
    • It's also the first pop'n music game soundtrack to consist of more than one CD on its soundtrack.
  • The character designs from this game would later be used in the console-only puzzle game pop'n 対戦 ぱずるだま ONLINE.
  • Total songs: 94

Let's make pop'n music 7 Together!

Prior to the release of pop'n music 7, a poll was held on Konami's web site as to what songs should get a remix in pop'n music 7. All songs from the very first pop'n music through 6 (plus the 4 CS games at the time) were eligible. Cry Out got the most votes out of all the songs listed, with a total of 845 votes, with 君を壊したい! second with 735 votes. (It never got a remix, though there was a Live version in pop'n music 8). Other strong songs included ROSE~恋人よ、薔薇色に染まれ (626), Homesick Pt.2&3 (601), 走りぬける君へ、Hurry up! (490), and 大見解 (465). At the end Cry Out, 龍舞~DRAGON DANCE, and 透明なマニキュア were remixed (despite 龍舞~DRAGON DANCE being in 69th place with only 44 votes), and Homesick Pt.2&3 got an extended version courtesy of pop'n music sound director Jun Wakita. (大見解 did eventually get a remix years later in pop'n music 16 PARTY♪, 大見解の新見解.)

PaPaMaMa*7

Shortly before the release of pop'n music 7, a contest in Japan was held to anyone to name three of the game's new characters. The contest was known as "PapaMama * 7". Shortly before the game was released, the winners were announced, as well as the names of the new characters:
