The game itself will cost 100 yen (about US$1.10) to play, and after the player pays, the machine will issue one of 46 different K-ON! cards. Players can then use trading cards to digitally read in a K-ON!-related song to play. Players can also read in up to three cards to unlock special combinations and get extra points. The game will include new lines recorded by the anime's cast.
Famitsu is hosting screenshots and example cards from the game.
