Release Information

  • Release date: July 3rd, 2003

General Information / Changes

  • Both the first Japanese console KONAMI game and the first pop'n music game released with the current KONAMI logo. Early box art showed the 1998-2003 bold KONAMI logo, however.

  • Last consecutive CS pop'n music game to have all the hidden arcade songs from the previous installment brought over.

    • As such, it is also the last CS pop'n music game where songs played with the EXtra Stage bar still count as a clear in TRAINING MODE.
  • Difficulty levels for songs are based on pop'n music 9, not the original arcade version of pop'n music 8.
  • THUNDER BIRDS and みなしごハッチ are absent from the songlist as they were removed following pop'n music 8.

(*) denotes songs that can be unlocked by clearing them in the expert course. All expert course songs will also automatically be unlocked after completing Sugoroku de 8.

Unlock Information

The unlock system for Pop'n Music 8 is a game called "SUGOROKU DE 8". (Sugoroku is a children's dice game.) To play the game, though, you must beat a specific challenge as you play through Arcade mode (for example, getting 0 misses or playing with a certain mod on. The requirement changes every time). Players guide a robot around the islands of Japan by rolling a dice; the robot then moves that many spaces. There are cities every three spaces, and when a player reaches a city, they might unlock a new song, course, or character. Players get different "prizes" each time the reach a different city. For example, the first time you reach Tokyo, you unlock CANDY♥. When you get to Tokyo the first time after you've made it all around Japan once, you unlock May Fa as a playable character.
