Here comes a gameplay video of the rhythm game Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Picchi Pichi Pichitto Live Start. This game is for gameboy advance and developped by Konami. This game is based on the magical girl animation serie Mermaid Melody and it's some mix of Dance Dance Revolution and Karaoke Revolution (the singers sings only if you play correctly). It's one of the best, if not the best, rhythm game for the Gameboy Advance.

TITLE: Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch Pichi Pichi Party
DEVELOPER(s): Konami Computer Entertainment Japan
PLATFORM(s): Game Boy Advance
RELEASE DATE(s): December 18, 2003
GENRE(s): A "virtual board game" similar to the Mario Party series
MODE(s): Multi player
RATING(s): CERO: B (Ages 12 and over)

From the manga and anime of the same incredibly-repetitive name, Konami's hyper-cute series of games features the three mermaids from the series and also boasts digitized voices of the characters on the GBA cart. This edition of the series is a board game which, instead of breaking out to mini-games as in other party games, largely is played as a straight board game (with anime cutscenes and other events.) A deluxe version of the game includes an actual fold-out board game to play away from the game.

TITLE: Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch Pichi Pichitto Live Start!
DEVELOPER(s): Konami Computer Entertainment Japan
PLATFORM(s): Game Boy Advance
RELEASE DATE(s): March 18, 2004
GENRE(s): Similar to the first Mermaid Melody game. This included fourteen songs from the anime, as well as several mini-games. Although this game (along with the first one) is a Konami-developed music video game, it is not considered part of the Bemani series.
MODE(s): Multi player
RATING(s): CERO: B (Ages 12 and over)

From the manga and anime of the same incredibly-repetitive name, Konami's hyper-cute series of games features the three mermaids from the series and also boasts digitized voices of the characters on the GBA cart. The game adds a three-character "synchro-pitch" system and introduces a story mode to the series (romantic twists and all). Also features mini-games. The title is a play on words as "pichi" is the sound of splashing water, as well as the English word pitch.
