Pop'n Music 2 was the next game in the Pop'n Music Franchise. It came out in 1999 for the Arcade. A while later it received a Playstation variant.

While songs from the previous installment were still present in this one, several new songs were added. The characters were designed by P-CAT.

This installment introduces the new PARTY mode, where several icons appear on the gameplay screen as well as pop-kun notes. Each of the special icons can activate a certain handicap (except for the heart icon which gives a Gauge Up) that lasts for several seconds.
