Speak to Genta in Amakane Island to begin playing the rhythm game. You can choose from seven pre-made beatmaps that will release one at a time during the first seven days of the event. Unlike previous rhythm events, you can choose any difficulty level from the get-go. If you choose a harder difficulty and complete the stage, you can claim rewards for the previous difficulty levels as well.

The rhythm game uses a semicircle tap zone. You're able to calibrate lag and the note falling speed for a fully customized gameplay experience by clicking the Settings menu on the upper right of the beatmap selection screen.

There are six points on the tap zone, and notes can fall on up to two points at the same time. To hit a single note, tap the note as soon as it hits the point on mobile, or click the specified buttons for PC and PlayStation. For hold notes, you need to tap and hold until the bar closes in, then let go when the second note hits the point.

There are times when you need to tap or hold two notes at the same time, so be careful and keep your eyes peeled! While there are three difficulty modes, you only need to get Dulcem (mid-rank, not too many notes missed) on Normal to get the Primogem rewards.
