Utatchi (うたっち?) is a rhythm video game developed and published by Konami for the Nintendo DS handheld game console in 2010, and it was released only in Japan. It is credited as a release under the Pop'n Music brand. The game plays with the DS held "book style" and the player interacts with falling notes using the stylus.



Utatchi plays in a similar manner to other Bemani games, in which notes travel down lanes into the judgement area. When the note reaches the center of the judgement area, one of four actions must be taken based on the note's color:

Note Color Note Description
Red The note is tapped.
Yellow The note is tapped immediately followed by an upwards flick.
Blue The note is held for its duration.
Green The note is held and the stylus is rubbed vertically for its duration.

In order to pass a song, the player must finish with at least 2/3 of the life bar full. As in other rhythm games, this is raised by hitting notes in time with the music. There are three timing grades: Good, Okay, and Boo. The first two will raise your life bar, while the last will deplete it.



The number of lanes possible are 1, 3, and 5. On 1 and 3 lane mode, there are two sub-difficulties, Simple and Difficult. 5 lane mode can only be played on Difficult.

Game Modes

Normal Play uses the gameplay listed above. Each note is part of the vocal track.

Vocal Play also uses the gameplay listed above. However, the player records a small section of audio using the microphone and this clip replaces the vocal track. It is pitch shifted in order to match the song.

Karaoke uses the microphone to detect when the player is singing. Judging is based on the presence of sound, not on pitch. Karaoke uses the 5 lane notechart.
