Release Information

General Information


  • Instead of using the regular pop'n controller set, you use the Wii Remote (right side) and Nunchuk (left side) to play.
    • Move the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, respectively to the corresponding buttons, downwards to hit the Blue buttons, inwards to hit the central Red button and outwards to hit the Green buttons.


  • 1 Player: Standard gameplay, using 5 buttons to play.
  • Multi-Player: Up to four players can play (depending on the game):
    • Pop'n Score Match: In this mode, players compete for the possible best point total.
    • Pop'n Gimmick Battle: A battle royale-style match where players can use gimmicks to attack each other while trying to get the top score. To activate your gimmick attack, wait until, while playing, your hands glow, then swing the controllers.
    • 2 Player pop'n rhythm: This mode is the same as the 1 Player mode, but the Button Bar has expand to 9 buttons. As stated in the manual, "each player is responsible for his or her side" (4 each, the central button is shared).
    • Activate! Pop'n Robot: Players move in unison to hit the buttons while aboard the Pop'n Robot (note: Gameplay is the same as in 1 Player.).
    • Pop'n Busters: Using only your Wii Remotes, players play while defeating ghosts. As stated in the manual, "each player is responsible for the three buttons on the colored pentagon that matches his or her color." The title of the mode is a reference to the Ghostbusters series.
