Megpoid the Music♯ (read as メグッポイド ザ ミュージック シャープ Megpoid the Music Sharp) is a rhythm-based video game created by ParaPhray (パラフレ) for the PlayStation®Portable. It is the first game starring Internet Co., Ltd.'s VOCALOID, GUMI. Both a standard and limited edition were released on March 28, 2013.

FeaturesEdit

GameplayEdit

  1. Up to 4 people are able to play at the same time.
  2. There are four difficulty modes: EASY, NORMAL, CHALLENGE and EXPERT.
  3. The scores achieved when hitting notes: "MISS", "FINE", "GOOD", "GREAT" and "BRILLIANT", with "Miss" being the worst and "Brilliant" the best.
  4. The grades for clearing a song: "WELL", "EXCELLENT", "PERFECT", etc.
  5. The game utilizes 8 different buttons: ↑↓→←○□△, the four arrows on the D-pad and the four face buttons. Notes will stream in from the right, from two to four vertical lines (depending on the difficulty), towards note markers on the left side of the screen. On the highest difficulty, players will push both arrows and symbols at the same time. [1][2]
  6. A "Groove Gauge" that will either fill up or decrease depending on how well played the session was.

  • Change her costume and customize in-game purchased accessories.
