Pentavision has two DJ Max Portable games lined up for release in Korea. DJ Max Portable Clazziquai Edition comes out sometime in October. Pentavision hasn’t announced a set date, but the standalone game should appear around October 16 when Sony Computer Entertainment Korea’s PSP-3000 DJ Max Package Limited Edition arrives in stores. Ruliweb and Play-Asia confirm this with a hovering October target for DJ Max Portable Claaziquai Edition too (thanks Reflect!).
DJ Max Portable Black Square is more enigmatic. Play-Asia has says it’s coming out in November, while SCEK and Pentavision haven’t announced a release date or even a window. Recently, Play-Asia has been on the ball with launch dates so it’s very likely we will see DJ Max Portable Black Square next month.
Play-Asia also notes DJ Max Portable Black Square will contain gameplay features from DJ Max Portable Clazziquai Edition and it’s the “hardcore gamer edition.” DJ Max Portable Clazziquai Edition appears to be more user friendly with a tutorial mode, two button intro mode, and notes you hit by spinning the analog stick. There are a few enhancement features too like 3D movies playing in the background and a mission mode disguised as a club tour. DJ Max Portable Clazziquai Edition targets a more general audience by roping in a popular music group and Pentavision is making an attempt to ease them into the DJ Max series. The two versions of DJ Max coming out in Korea this year will have different song lists and the licensed Clazziquai songs are likely to be replaced DJ Max Portable Black Square. DJ Max Portable Clazziquai Edition is also confirmed to have optional English and Japanese text for easy importing.
In addition to these DJ Max games DJ Max Metro debuts in North America in November too. We’re still waiting to see a final song list from PM Studios, but it will include new music too.
