and a change of wardrobe,
knee-ball guy is back!

Space Soccer 2 (リフティング2 Lifting 2?) is the 44th minigame in Rhythm Heaven. It is the sequel to Space Soccer. It has a western motif.


Space Soccer 2 west

The gameplay is nearly identical to the original, only slightly more complex. The Space Kicker wears a western outfit and rides on a flying wooden horse instead of a platform. There are more kicks to perform.


  • Tap: Kick
  • Flick: High kick

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The ball is kicked up and the gameplay smoothly continues.
  • Barely: The ball is kicked up and the gameplay smoothly continues. A barely counts as a hit.
  • Miss: The ball falls and another ball appears at the beginning of the following measure. If the player flicks the stylus too quickly or too late after holding it down, the space kicker makes a shocked expression and miss the ball completely.
