pop'n music 4

Release Information

  • Release date: March 18th, 2000

General Information / Changes

  • First pop'n music game to run on BEMANI FIREBEAT HARDWARE, which was also used for beatmania III, KEYBOARDMANIA, and ee'MALL. The colors and graphics were noticeably more colorful and more detailed than ever as a result of the more powerful hardware. Firebeat would be used through pop'n music 8.
  • First pop'n music game in the series to have speed modifiers. However, the only one is 2X.
  • First pop'n music arcade game in which new AC songs have HYPER notecharts.
  • First pop'n music game to tell you the BPM of a song.
  • First pop'n music game with categories divided by individual games (1-4, as well as an ALL folder).
  • First pop'n music game in the series to have a distinctive interface (1-3 were essentially the same interface with color differences). In addition, all the menus feature new music re-arranged by Seiya Murai.
  • Only mainstream pop'n music game prior to pop'n music ラピストリア without individual song, MISS, and FEVER backgrounds. Instead, several backdrops are seen in the background for songs.
  • Tatsuya Furukawa (good-cool) and Seiya Murai (V.C.O., Kiyommy+Seiya, natural bear, etc.) make their pop'n music debuts.
  • Hiroki Koga (Naya~n) starts writing his own music for the series.
  • Only game in the series to have two individual CDs for one installment. The first CD, pop'n music 4 arcade originals, contains all the AC songs, plus jingles and three new long versions. The follow-up CD, pop'n music 4 consumer originals, contains all the pop'n music 4 AC songs (except GROOVE ROCK), but axes the jingles and long versions for the 4 CS songs and new long versions of those songs.
  • Only pop'n music arcade game where NONE of the AC songs have ever gotten HYPER charts in Battle Mode.
  • Total songs: 86
