Mission Mode: Unlocking Content

So, if you’ve had a card for a while, you must’ve leveled up in rank at least once or twice. The main benefit of your title is the fact that better titles unlock new missions. At the time of writing, there were thirty missions available in Korea, of which all of them are unlocked once you obtain the Pop DJ title. Missions are classified as Easy, NM, or HD, depending on the overall difficulty of the mission. The rule of thumb? The further down the list you go, the harder the mission will be.

The way Technika’s mission mode works is that you’re given a preset course of three songs. You cannot change modifiers; if anything, for the majority of courses, modifiers are forced upon you! In some missions, you’re also given a quota of either score or combo to beat; and above all else, it’s implied that you, of course, finish all three songs. The lifebar seems the same as that in Popular Mixing; it does not become harder to recover your life upon reaching later songs.

In most other games, mission modes have missions that you complete for the unlock, and then just throw away never to see again, never to improve upon. Pentavision got smart, and thus introduced a different unlock system, with one main caveat: unlocks are not permanent. For each mission you clear that has an unlock attached to it, you obtain three credits toward that particular song (or course, in the case of the Challenger Set). One credit is depleted for every play of that song; if you run out of credits, you have to go and complete the mission again to obtain more. Credits are stackable up to fifty, so you can go and reserve your credits, if you’d like. Additionally, you may only use your credits when you’re on a networked machine!
