Unlock Information

Sugoroku de 8 (すごろくde8)

pop'n music 8's unlock system is called Sugoroku de 8 (すごろくde8) (sugoroku is a children's dice game.) It will appear after your last song in ARCADE. However, to access it, you must beat a certain condition in that round, which changes from round to round (for example, using speed mods, fulfilling certain point requirements, etc.). Successfully doing so unlocks the game after that round of ARCADE.

Playing the game is simple; you simply roll a die, and pop'n music character P-1 will then move to the amount of spaces it lands in. For every three spaces you land on, you reach a city in Japan, which can unlock songs, courses, and hidden playable characters. The event ends once you unlock TECHNO POP.

Completing Sugoroku de 8 (100% completion rate) also unlocks the four title screen triggered songs, LIVE songs, expert course exclusive songs, and CS original song LATIN ENKA. It will also unlock HELL the EIGHT, the final unlock of the game.
