By Spencer . September 4, 2007 . 7:20pm

Konami hasn’t given Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party an official date for North America, but in Japan it’s slated for October 25, 2007. On the same day Konami is going to sell a two disc soundtrack for 3,045 ($26). Comparatively extra mats ring up for 4536 yen a piece ($39). Remember you can use the […]

Rhythm master, interview with the producer of the US Bemani games

By Spencer . August 10, 2007 . 6:59pm

Before I stepped on the Wii DDR mat to try out Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party, I spoke to Jason Enos from Konami. You may not recognize his name, but he’s behind many of the Bemani titles that came out in the USA. I had a skeleton list of questions I scribbled down in preparation […]

Songs in Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party

By Spencer . July 31, 2007 . 10:21am

After playing Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party I quickly jotted down some of the songs in the demo. This is by no means a final list, but it will give you an idea of what Konami is going for in the first DDR game on the Wii. Most of the songs are dance remixes too. […]

Stepping up to Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party

By Spencer . July 26, 2007 . 12:58am

Besides adding new songs and online play, the last “revolution” Dance Dance Revolution had was freeze arrows. That was way back in Dance Dance Revolution MAX and most fans have mastered standing still on an arrow by now. Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party throws veterans a curve ball, it adds in new arrows. The first […]

Konami dancing to the Disney Channel?

By Spencer . July 20, 2007 . 12:09pm

Back at E3, Konami announced Dance Dance Revolution: SuperNOVA 2 and a sequel to DDR: Universe for the Xbox 360. Logical follow ups and if Gamestop is right there is one more DDR game coming to the Playstation 2, Dance Dance Revolution: Disney Channel. This wouldn’t be the first time that Konami partnered up with […]

More dancing on the PS2, SuperNOVA 2 is coming

By Spencer . July 9, 2007 . 11:19am

Konami has just begun to test Dance Dance Revolution SuperNOVA 2 in arcades and it looks like home port might be coming out soon. On the ESRB there is a listing for DDR SuperNOVA 2 and it’s likely we will find out more about it this week during E3. I wonder what other Dance Dance […]

Konami’s fitness revolution

By Spencer . June 13, 2007 . 8:13am

Konami has made a pretty penny by marketing Dance Dance Revolution as an exercise tool and their next extension of the DDR franchise focuses on fitness. Groove Motion DDR is more like an automated fitness class than foot stomping game you've seen in the arcades. You can follow a martial arts routine or practice Yoga […]

Frogger Frogger Revolution

By Spencer . June 7, 2007 . 6:01pm

Konami has a new kid’s game in development, Frogger Hop, Skip & Jumpin’ Fun where you explore Frogger’s world outside of the busy street car filled street. What makes this release interesting is it is being packaged with a modified version of the Dance Dance Revolution dance mat. It isn’t exactly a dancing game though, […]

Games and dating… do they mix?

By Spencer . June 2, 2007 . 10:25am

Sure why not? There are plenty of girl gamers out there and Nerve has a list of the top ten games to play while on a date. Their list has some obvious choices like Wii Sports, Dance Dance Revolution and Singstar, the latter being debatable depending on how awful a singer you are. There are […]

Watch: Dancing to the Price is Right

By Spencer . May 3, 2007 . 7:21am

Instead of waiting for Konami to choreograph the steps to new songs the Stepmania community takes matters in their own hands by making SIM files, with inhuman dance sequences only for the hardcore. While there are lots of songs out in the wild many of them fall into the video game music, anime theme or […]

By Spencer . April 30, 2007 . 3:00pm

  A list with release dates for upcoming Wii and DS games has been floating around the internet with a possible date for Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party. According to the “official” list (thanks for sending this in IceAmp) it says DDR: Hottest Party is scheduled for release on June 29, 2007. It seemed a […]

Screen Gallery: Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party

By Spencer . March 28, 2007 . 8:12am

It’s still early in development, but here are some screenshots of Konami’s Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party. These screenshots are missing something, the new arrows that tell players when to shake the remote or the nunchuck. Also none of the pictures show the game’s songlist, which is supposed to have around 80 songs spanning four […]

Stepmania X Wii controller: Dancing with the Wiimote

By Spencer . March 6, 2007 . 10:34am

With the help of a custom GlovePIE script the Wii remote can be used to play Stepmania. The demo shows that instead of pressing keys or stomping on arrows you move the remote: up, down, left or right. It’s a new way to experience DDR, but hopefully Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party will be more […]

Bonus songs in Dance Dance Revolution Universe

By Spencer . March 1, 2007 . 8:02am

Konami’s take on microtransacitions is a clever one. Instead of only selling bundles of songs like they did for Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix, Konami is giving DDR fans a choice. You can purchase individual songs for 100 Points each ($1.20) or save 20% buy getting the “mega pack” with ten songs for 800 points ($10). […]

Konami’s “next-gen” dancing game, Dance Dance Revolution Universe, comes out this week for the Xbox 360. Besides online dancing and cel shaded visuals, DDR Universe has a new song list with a remixes of DDR favorites (B4U again?) and pop music from Kylie Minogue. Three video game remixes stand out in the list, one is […]
