Unlock System

BEST HITS!

The unlock system for pop'n music Best Hits! is titled BEST HITS!. In this mode, two pop-kuns (a red one named Aka-kun, voiced by Hideo Suwa, and a blue one named Ao-kun, voiced by Sana) host a mode where you play various ten ranking groups of songs across four different ranking groups, each one featuring brief commentary by Suwa and Sana before play. Each group ends with one of the top ten requested songs for the game. You can also unlock new songs added to the game as well. All songs can be played on any difficulty level available for that song.

After completing BEST HITS, the credits will roll.
