Well more surprises just keep coming from the Tokyo AOU show. And this time it isn’t DDR or IIDX… but Pop’n Music. As you all know the official release of Pop’n 7 CS is November 21st 2002 so of course some info was bound to be leaked before then. First there’s the fact that available from Konamistyle is the Pop’n 7 CS pack which features V-Rare Soundtrack 3, Pop’n Music 7 2003 Callendar, Nyami & Mimi Keychains, 2 Mousepads, and a Tin. And thanks to some Japanese AOU patrons we have a small list of consumer original songs that WILL appear in Pop’n 7 CS.
