What's New

Utacchi is out! The first draft of this FAQ covers everything you'll need to
play the 10 songs that come with the game, both in Campaign mode, and in
Karaoke Mode.

1.0  FAQ

Q. What is Utacchi?
A. Utacchi is the first DS game in Konami's long-running BeMani series. It's a
   music game where the player has to tap or swipe notes, as they fall down the
   screen, in order to produce music.

Q. Is This Pop'n Music?
A. It's part of the Pop'n Music series, but it plays very differently. The game
   is played with the stylus, and has four different types of notes, which
   require 4 different stylus movements. It's a lot more than just tapping
   notes to play the music.

Q. How many difficulty modes / charts are there per song?
A. Each song has 5 charts. Two 1-button charts, two 3-button charts and one 5-
   button chart. Because each note requires you to tap or swipe it in a
   different way, the easier modes can actually be deceptively challenging.

Q. Does this game have "keysounds"?
A. Yes, all the vocals are keysounds.

Q. Do you have to sing to unlock anything?
A. No. The Karaoke Mode is seperate from the actual game.

Q. Is this game aimed at children?
A. It's aimed at the exact same audience as the rest of the BeMani series.


2. Getting Started

When you first load up your cartridge, you'll be asked to select from one of 3
save slots. Select the slot you want, and then tap the big red button. The game
will open a brief tutorial, which you can skip by tapping the blue button in
the bottom-left of the screen.

Utacchi is a music game. Notes will fall from the top of the screen, each
holding a Japanese character. The player has to tap or swipe the style across
each note, as it reaches the bottom of the screen.

The tutorial introduces you to the 4 different types of "Tatsuchii"

Red (Tacchi)
Tap the note when it reaches the bottom of the screen.

Yellow (Hanechi)
Tap the note when it reaches the bottom of the screen, then swipe the stylus
upwards, as if your drawing a small line up the screen.

Blue (Nobichi)
When the note reaches the bottom of the screen, press the style onto it. Lift
the stylus up as the note is about to vanish.

Green (Kosuchi)
When the note reaches the bottom of the screen, press the style onto it, and
drag it back and forth in long movements. As the note is about to leave the
screen, swipe the stylus upwards.

Once you've beaten the tutorial, you'll be taken to the main menu.

Main Menu

Single Player
Wai Wai Mode (Multiplayer)
Download Mode (Multiplayer)

The Multiplayer modes will be covered later in the FAQ. Omake Mode contains an
autoplay feature (which allows you to hear all the songs being played
perfectly), and a Character Museum mode, which allows you to view all the in-
game sprite animations. Selecting "Single Player" will take you to the
following menu

Single Player Menu

Free Play

Campaign Mode is the game's main mode. Letting you play any song on any of the
5 difficulties. Beating each song earns you points to spend at the Shop, and
also the chance to win scratchcards. This is the only mode used for unlocking
new characters and songs.

If you hate unlocking new things, and select Free Play mode, you'll first be
offered to select a character. Timer has an awesome name, so you should
definitely choose him. As you unlock new characters in Campaign mode, they'll
be selectable here.

Free Play Menu

Normal Play
Voice Play

Normal Play is the same as Campaign Mode, although your character (which is
Timer, if you have any sense at all) replaces the character that usually
appears on that song. Playing songs in Free Play doesn't allow you to unlock
new characters or songs.

Voice Play prompts you to record a short noise through the DS microphone. When
you play songs in this mode, the keysounds in the song will all be replaced by
a pitch-shifted playback of this recording. It's kind of fun, but ultimately

Karaoke Mode is a terrifying incarnation of Pop'n Music, which makes 9-Button
Ex Mode players tremble in fear. In this mode, the player sings along to the
song themselves, using the console's built-in microphone. It doesn't detect
pitch, but it does detect how long you hold the note. Good luck playing Cobalt.


3.0 Campaign Mode

After selecting Campaign Mode, you'll be taken directly to the song select
menu. You can use the stylus to move up or down through the songwheel, and tap
the name of the song you want to play, to start immediately.

Utacchi has 5 modes of difficulty, which change both the song's vocal
complexity (and difficulty), and also the number of lanes in which notes will
fall down the screen (the layout). The current difficulty is displayed at the
top of the screen, and a flashing cloud icon in the bottom left of the screen
allows you to enter the difficulty selection screen.

Choosing to change the difficulty will take you to a separate screen, where you
can choose the layout at the top, and then the difficulty at the bottom. Note
that "5-button" mode can only be played on Hard difficulty. Once you've chosen
your difficulty and layout, tap the red button to return to the song select

The 5 possible combinations are from hereon referred to as :

1-Button Easy     1-Button Hard
3-Button Easy     3-Button Hard
5-Button Mode

The left side of the Song Select screen shows information about the song,
including the banner graphic, the difficulty of the song (measured in stars),
and the speed of the song (written in Japanese). It also tracks your all-time
high score on the song, and the highest combo you've earned.

To start off, you'll need to pass a song. The default song "Genesis Of
Aquarion" is actually pretty challenging on any mode. The easiest song is
"Cloudy Skies" (Donten), which is the 4th song down on the songlist.

Once you select a song, the game will begin. On the right screen, notes will
fall down the screen, and need to be tapped or swiped, in time to the music
(there's an explanation of each note in the Getting Started section of the
guide). As you hit each note, the game will grade you on your timing.

Orange - "Great"
Yellow - "Good"
Green - "Bad"
Blue - "Miss"

On the left screen, you can see your current score, your current combo, and
your "Groove Meter" Hitting any note will increase your combo and your Groove
Meter. Missing a note completely will reset the combo to zero, and lower the
Groove Meter. In order to pass a song, you have to fill up at least 2/3rds of
the Groove Meter, and keep it filled until the end of the song.

At the top of the left screen, the lyrics of the song are displayed in
hiragana. This is fairly irrelevant, unless you're playing the game in Karaoke
Mode, or have some strange desire to act like a Japanese preschooler, and sing
along to the game. Please don't do this.

At the end of the song, you'll either fail, and get taken back to the song
selection screen, or you'll pass, and get to play The Awesome Scratch Card
Minigame Thing.

Before any cards are scratched, you'll be awarded a number of points based on
your score (which you can spend to unlock new songs in Shop Mode), and shown a
breakdown of how many notes you hit, and how well you hit them.

The Awesome Scratch Card Minigame Thing will appear, showing a grid of 9 stars.
When you scratch off a star, you'll reveal one of three symbols :

O - Good!
X - Bad!
@ - Win!

Collecting three "O" symbols, or the "@" symbol will win the game, and unlock a
new character. Collecting "X" symbols will kick you out of the Minigame, and
back to the song select screen. The card is completely random every time, so
even if you get a card with the same graphic, the symbols will be randomly

Note that the songwheel is still showing the song you just played, but now
displays "CLEAR!!" on the far right. This is called a "Pass Lamp". If you hit
every note in the song, you'll also get a golden crown Pass Lamp next to it. On
the left screen, your High Score (or only score) will be recorded, along with
your highest combo. The game tracks separate scores for each song, on all 5
Difficulty Modes.

Once you've beaten 4 or 5 songs, you can start unlocking more, by visiting the


4.0 Shop Mode

The Shop Mode allows you to unlock new songs, by spending points accumulated in
Campaign Mode. At the beginning of the game, the following songs are available.

Cha La Head Cha La [1500 Points]
Kibun Joujou       [1800 Points]
A Perfect Sky      [1500 Points]
Zenryoku Shounen   [1500 Points]
One Night Carnival [1500 Points]
Freckles           [1800 Points]
Nihon no Mikata    [1800 Points]
Strength           [1800 Points]
Asterisk           [1800 Points]
Haruko Kanata      [1800 Points]
Pray               [1200 Points]

Once you've purchased 4 songs from the shop, a second wave of songs opens up. A
third wave opens up once you've purchased your 8th song.


5.0 Songs

Utacchi features 40 songs, which span the entire Japanese musical spectrum (but
mostly consist of songs from Pop'n Music and Jubeat games). The game starts off
with 10 playable songs, and 10 more which you can unlock in Shop Mode. Each
song is listed here, using the following format :

mitsukaru to shitte

Lyrics :

kimi wa kikoeru
boku no kono koe ga
yami ni munashiku

moshimo sekai ga
imi wo motsu no nara
konna kimochi wo
muda de wa nai

akogare ni
osu tsubusarete
akirametetan da
hateshinai sora no iro mo
shiranai de

omoi ga ima demo
kono mune wo tashika ni
kyou no boku ga
sono saki ni tsuzuku
bokura nari no asu wo

kotae wa sou
itsumo koko ni aru
