Great news! We’ve performed a special update to items in LINE POP, the popular puzzle game featuring Brown! Also, look forward to a series of events we have in store for you next week!


New items to get you amazing scores

Introducing the Double Candy item
We’ve added a new Double Candy item to the pop-up items that appear randomly before each game! This item produces TWO Hyper Blocks when the Combo Gauge is full. Hyper Blocks can eliminate all the blocks in the same row and column it’s in!

Limited edition Six Mode item
A limited edition item, Six Mode, will be available from May 22 (Wed).
Lightning quick combos that’ll make you smile! 
Why? Cos only 6 types of Blocks will appear during the first 30 seconds of the game, instead of the usual 7 types! That makes it so much easier to achieve combos and get amazingly high scores!
Available from May 22 (Wed) to May 31 (Fri)

These new items and Missions have just made LINE POP even more exciting! We hope you are as excited as we are about the update!


As of 15:00 today, May 10, 2013, we regret to announce that we will be withdrawing the function to send purchased stickers as gifts to friends on the iPhone version of LINE. 

We received a request directly from Apple who operates the AppStore, that this sticker gifting function will have to be withdrawn from the app, and we do apologize for the disappointment this may cause to all of you who are having fun sending stickers as gifts to your friends. 

Functions withdrawn from the iPhone version of LINE:
・Gifting function of paid-for stickers to friends
Purchasing of Coins necessary to use the gifting function
*LINE Coins are required to purchase stickers and themes in LINE versions 4.6.0 and above. Additionally, you can no longer gift paid sticker sets to friends, even if you purchase them using LINE Coins. (Added September 1, 2014)

If you still have Coins remaining:
If you have over 100 Coins remaining, you will be able to continue sending stickers as gifts until you have used up all your Coins. If you only have 50 Coins remaining and cannot send stickers as gifts, please contact us. We will be happy to provide you with additional Coins to cover the shortfall, as 100 Coins are the minimum amount required in order to enable you to send a single sticker set as a gift. 
*Coin balances for purchasing gifts became part of regular Coin balances in LINE versions 4.6.0 and above, and can no longer be used for gifts. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. (Added September 1, 2014)

We would like to also inform you that you will still be able to send free stickers as gifts to your friends as well as purchase stickers for yourself. Also, iPhone users will still be able to receive sticker gifts from Android users as usual.

We do apologize for any disappointment and ask for your kind understanding.
