Sound Journal for Lovers comprises a set of text and images meant to smoothly accompany the music that played during the St.GIGA broadcast hour. The majority of the contents are screens displaying an artist listing and lyrics scrolling upwards. Of the minor interactions available to the player, a toggle option changes the lyrics from English to a Japanese translation. Some songs do not have an associated listing for lyrics.
A ROM version of this game has been dumped and may be run via emulation by switching to the "Old" ROM-loading method in SNES9Xpp XE. By selecting the "Downloading portrait/picture data" option in the game, white Japanese text appears, however as yet there have been no attempts to develop techniques to upload graphical data for use with the ROM. It has been speculated that the program might be trying to stream data into it even as it runs.
