This Karaoke Revolution title is the first in the series of J-Pop music. It comes with 50 titles in total. The gameplay consists of selecting the song of your liking in one of the several gameplay modes, from singleplayer to team battles, and using a USB microphone or a USB headset to sing along the on-screen lyrics which mark the words that need to be sung in real time.

The game offers several different gameplay modes such as Revolution and Stage Challenge where you need to sing as is supposed to in order to avoid game over screen, Team Battle which lets 4, 6, or 8 players go in 2 vs 2, 3 vs 3, or 4 vs 4 battles by naming their groups, selecting and naming their characters and pick to songs to try on against each other, and Audition mode which is a story mode which plays as a short visual novel in between singing, where the player selects one of the four characters trying to enter the music company by auditioning.

During karaoke singing, player can see only the lyrics or additionally display one's current score in real-time. Background animations during lyrics can be toggled on and off in game options. Any song can be fast-forwarded during playback if you wish to sing particular part or just skip the instrumental pauses.
