Aikatsu! Photo on Stage!! is a mobile game adaptation of Aikatsu!.
The gameplay is similar to Jubeat, except that in this game the hold notes can be vary in length. There is also a story mode which follows the character's idol life, which deviates from the arcade game and the anime adaptation.
After two years, the service shut down on July 11, 2018.
Aikatsu! Photo on Stage!! contains examples of the following:
- Double Unlock: To unlock songs beyond easy difficulty in live shows, one has to unlock the song in easy difficulty first by clearing the relevant story episodes. Then, score rank of A or above for said difficulty is needed to access the medium difficulty, which needs to be repeated on medium difficulty to unlock hard difficulty. Some songs even become triple lock because some of the story episodes require the character to be unlocked first. However, if the player gets score rank of A while in story mode live stages, the next difficulty level is unlocked straight away.
- Flawless Victory: The main character which players put in live shows will praise the player when a full combo is acheived. However, this does not always translate to S rank combo because combo total depends on how long the notes are pressed, which is less when they are pressed late.
- Harder Than Hard: Legendary difficulty, which is only available in select songs.
- Loads and Loads of Loading: The game tends to load whenever the screen is changed. Accessing story data requires separate data download as well, presumably to ease up data usage for mobile data plan users.
