A casual waifu horse game with cute waifus.
"There are no bad horse, only bad trainers
Great Horse Game of 2021!
I played this game for years so I though i should review it.
Gameplay: Its smooth especially with the new nether 1.6 update.
BGM: Great BGM that rivals Blue Archive.
You need "Spawn Horse Item" to summon one and you need to be on Creative mode or "Whale" in simple term to purchase one which is pretty p2w and HUGE advantage for whales.
But Fear not! there's an f2p method to get a horse! you need to do expedition which cost 5 hunger bar
equivalent to 6 wheat currency estimated and if you're lucky, you can find horse wandering around.
Thankfully there's a breeding system where you can breed your horse to make a stronger horse breed and it only takes days to fully use them to their potential.
Can be unlock at lvl 30.
Game has no dupe limitbreaking and its very f2p because of it.
Gacha rates on gears aren't friendly but the game gives you A LOT of gacha currency if you know how to grind.
Gacha rate of Saddle is 0.8%.
Fishing Rod is the gacha currency, you need 3 sticks(you can get sticks by crafting) and 2 strings(you can get strings by killing spiders) to make one, grinding is now easier with this mechanic!
There is also an exchange shop where saddle only cost 8 to 10 emeralds depending on the villager which can be unlock at lvl 15.
So you want to get into the game? here some tips to help you:
Saddle are obtainable via chest or you can get them by fishing.
You need apple or wheat to tame your favorite horse.
Also recommended gears for your Horse:
Diamond Horse Armor
Splash Potion of Swiftness I/II(pvp purpose)
If you're f2p you can try Leather Horse Armor as alternative but expect whales to destroy you in pvp, but horse skills plays a major role in winning.
There are 2 types of Horse which jumps very high and other one which jumps normally but its very fast at running. Choose your playstyle.
You can also use Splash Potion of Slowness to beat whales but be wary that some whales are skilled at using their horse.

Aún así un 10 de 10! Ha valido la pena la espera jaja
Speed : Affect maximum speed.
Generally useful, but don't specialized in this if you didn't use Escape (from the pack) strategy, or most race was Short distances and Miles (Sakura Bakushin O).
Stamina : Affect how much your speed decrease in a match.
You don't need to specialized it if your horse didn't race in mid and long distances. You need moderate stamina in mid distances(Mejiro McQueen) and specialized in it if you need to conquer long distances (Rice Shower)
Strength : Affect acceleration and course taking.
Pretty useful for Chase, Insert, and Lead strategy but generally useless for Escape strategy.
Why is it useful? simple, it was because!
No matter how fast or strong you are if you got surrounded by the pack, then you are over!
Guts : Affect last spurt.
Good for Chase, Insert, and Lead strategy.
It affect horse determination to win at the last corner and make them easier to overtake their opponent.
After much training trying to specialzed in it, I found out that it was basically useless to specialized in it since this stat was shitty if your other stat was shitty.
Intelligent : Affect your skill
Generally good for all uma musume, especially if you have lots of skills. You don't need to specialized in this , but having more intelligent would be advantage in a race.
Yellow skill added your uma usume capabilities in a race.
Blue skill affect your uma musume stamina recovery.
Red skill debuff your rival uma musume.
Green skill affect your uma musume adaptivity.
That's all for stat I guess. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Estaré traduciendo los eventos y algunas partes de la historia solo si son full voices,queda mejor con full voces que solo por texto confío en cygames.
El juego sale el día 23 a las 4 de la madrugada Europa España / Francia
23 /02 21:00 hora latinoamerica ( Ecuador / Chile)
Las traducciones las llevaré con calma ya que tengo cosas pendiente por traducir para otras personas en otros juegos.
Discord en español del juego
Con traducciónes y guías al español
Il y a certains jeux où le japonais n'est pas gênant mais sur ce type de jeu je trouve que c'est difficile de s'en sortir sans rien comprendre.
Ça n'arrivera sûrement jamais mais une traduction en anglais serait super.
Tirando a parte do gacha, eu diria que é um bom jogo! Estou a procura de atualizações novas e o ajuste no Gacha pra botar ele pra funcionar de novo!
เกมนี้ใครสายชิลไม่ค่อยจิงจังอาจจะเล่นยากหน่อยนะคะ การศึกษาเกมเพลย์จนความรู้แน่นก็เป็นตัวช่วยในการเล่นเช่นกัน และที่ขาดไม่ได้คือดวงค่ะ คุณต้องมาพร้อมกับดวงที่สามารถเปิดหาตัวโหดและการ์ดสกิลโหดได้
4. หลังจากนี้เราสามารถ Skip โหมด Tutorial ได้ค่ะ
**นี่เป็นการรีวิวครั้งแรกของเราค่ะ มีอะไรขัดใจก็ต้องขออภัยด้วยนะคะ แล้วก็ขอให้ทุกคนโชคดีกับการสุ่มกาช่านะคะ
"Finally we can meet with everyone"
A bit of refresher.
Uma Musume is a multimedia project first announced in 2016 about anthropomorphized horse girls. All of the girls are based on real life racing horses that are registered in Japan's Hall of Fame in the last 30 years (most of them are long departed). Due to the snag that is how serious business horse racing in Japan is and probably dealings with the real life owner of the actual horses; the game is delayed but anime hit greenlight in 2018. The anime managed to gain attention from fans due to how many shout-out it gives to the actual racing horse counterpart, even looking at JRA's website can spoil you on the race outcome. It also feels more like a sports anime, despite the idol and moe first impression.
Game continued to hit snag, while the remaining project launched with 3 manga and 1 more anime (Umayon!). Finally the game got the greenlight on 2021 in the middle of main anime's second season. The launch was a big hit, it actually gain around 2 billion yen in just 5 days.
So what is Uma Musume: Pretty Derby?
It is a management game about horse race, somewhat in similar tone to shinym@s game. The 'career' mode, dubbed....*cough*URA FINALS(thanks, principal) where you can raise one horse that you own (everyone always start with at least Daiwa Scarlet, Vodka, Haru Urara, and Bakushin). There is also main story, and it follow somewhat close to the second season's anime with few alterations here and there (like removal of Trainer and Hana Toujo in exchange for you). First chapter is about McQueen and the 'ace'; while second chapter is about Rice Shower and the 'hero'.
You can support the start with inheritance and support cards. Inheritance basically means you add some initial stats and skills fom another 2 horse that already finish their training session. You can use your follow's registered horses (please update your profile horses when you get the one you're satisfied with) 3 times per one day. Also to note, every girls have compability with each other.....so always aim for the OO inherit in the top right screen.
Support card helps with building stats during training and add random events that give you more stats or skills. Needless to say, this is the one you should reroll for (recomended are Tazuna and Nishino Flower support card). You can just go without reroll, but you will have to do more. Main story gives you SSR support card as well, so you are not really required to reroll if you got meh results. What you will do is ultimately back to each person.
Once you pick the 'parents' and the support card, the training will start. Each girls have their speciality, strong point, and running style (example: Bakushin excel at short race, grass field, and either escape or advancing-style). For each mandatory race, you have limited amount of time to train them symbolized with turns. There are five stats: Speed, Stamina, Power, Guts, and Intelligence. Each girls have two stats which they excel at and will gain additional stats gain if you train that. After each train, a random event will occur with some of them happened at fixed time.
Each girls have their own pre-URA Finals training regiment objective, some matched with the RL career. Aside from the 'main' URA Finals story, each girls will have their own storyline that touch bits of the real life counterpart. Like Vodka and Scarlet's rivalry, Urara consoling Rice about her defeat, and Silence Suzuka with her leg injury. It is a reading-heavy stuff, so without Japanese language knowledge it will be hard to know about the personal story of each horses. Does it affect your enjoyment? Maybe a little, but the training part is honestly really fun even without knowing the story. And that's not adding the support stories that touched some aspect of the girls that you have no idea of.
This game is really scary in emulating the feels of the real life owners and horse race fans (minus the betting). You will be amused by their antics, you will be frustrated if they are injured, you will cheer for them during races to use their skills, you will be proud of them if they are managed to be the centre in Winning Live.
With Winning Live songs you can get (plus 2 solo-exclusive song from main story), unique-ness of each girls, trophies you can get for each girls, and how even with the exact same support will not make the next run identical; it will be hard to being bored with the gameplay (except if you are not interested in management-style game ofc)
Per usual case of Cygames, their music is always top notch. Each Winning Live is amazing to look at, even commentator during race add yet another enjoyment to the race portion.
Gacha rates as follow
Per 10 pull
Pull 1 to 9
3% for *3 girls
18% for *2 girls
79% for *1 girls
3% for *3 girls
97% for *2 girls
Same rates applied for support card. Not all girls start from the *3, but even *1 and *2 girls will get their signature costume when raised to *3, so even garbage roll for girls will benefit you one day. There is spark system for every 200 rolls.
Personally, I think this game's really good. From the 3d to the Winning Live to the UI, it all screams high value production. Starting without help will make you confused as you have a lot to monitor from each girls......but once you get the hang of it, it is a fun game.
Looks like all the wait really worked for both the fans and Cygames, huh?
On a side note
1. Some IPs are blocked from this game. Korea is one of them, but more because Kakao Games are working to make the localized version. Kakao Games have a good relation with Cygames, so Korea players should not worry (aside of starting over). As for other IPs, can't really say.
2. This game is battery-hungry. For those that does not have a strong or compatible smartphone, PC version will be released at March 10th via DMM Games
3. AirServer are known to crap a lot with this game.
I can tell you guys a couple of conclusive tips from watching Japanese guides, and just from experience.
You want 3 highly rated SSR or SR cards for speed, 1 endurance and 1 or 2 wits. The last training card is recommended to be the tutorial girl, the one with green clothes. This is one of the support card that you can borrow, so dont focus on it too much.
This means you have to priotize support cards first not characters. When you do your gacha, make sure to do support cards, get the right deck first, then summon for characters. A character is useless without good support cards.
There are 5 training routines that you could do. Depending on the meters or the type of race that you're doing, you will either need more blue skills if you have too little stamina but a lot of speed and endurance, or, if you have too much stamina, endurance, or wits, yellow skills are the token to victory.
In this game, Speed > Endurance > Wits (skill activation rate) > Stamina > Guts (increase speed midpoint of the race). You should priotize your stats by that order. 4 and 5 can be skipped entirely. Unless you're doing like a 1800+ long race, stamina at 300-500 is a good range. If you have too much stamina for short races, it's kinda like having 5 chances to hit a ball, but the challenge was to hit the ball once, the other 4 chances are seen as a wasted stat.
Simply put, just train mostly speed, endurance, and wits. Raising endurance can indirectly increase your stamina so dont bother too much on doing the stamina training.
I have not play similar games to UmaMusume before so I find the training concept rather hard. But that didn't stop me frm plying it. Had always wanted to have a game with harder challenges so this game really suit me a lot!!
This game is basically a 'train your idol' game but horse version. All the horses are pretty (pretty illustrations), even the support cards are so nicely drawn!!! Different horses have different personalities & specialties so you really have to plan your training menu well in order to make your selected horse get 1st placing in the last UMA FINALS!
Comes to the story section, where you get to read main story and your horse waifu's stories. (Ngl when I first saw Oguri racing in main story, I was admiring how cool she looks! >
ofc its better than Genshit 💪
no need to say much
all hail Lord KMR
