DJMax Technika 2 (Korean: 디제이맥스 테크니카 2) is a music arcade game published and developed by Pentavision in South Korea, and is a sequel to the earlier DJMax Technika arcade game.[1][2][3]

Announcement[edit]

The project was revealed to the public on 4 March 2010, when a notice was placed on the front page of the Korean Platinum Crew website regarding DJMax Technika 2.[1]

Game information[edit]

As with DJMax Technika, the game will feature online elements through the Platinum Crew service. DJMax Technika 2 is expected to hold more online functionality than DJMax Technika.[1]

The first location test for Technika 2 took place at Isu Theme Park from 23 April 2010.[4][5][6][7] The features revealed to the public include:

  • Duo Mixing: The screen is divided into four blocks with each player responsible for 2 blocks on each side and the two players can play co-operatively although only all the song M/Vs are replaced by one generic background.
  • Star Mixing: The equivalent of Lite Mixing from the original DJMax Technika, where three lanes are available for play. Fever (see below) cannot be used in this mode, however an optional guide which aids the player's timing can be turned on and off.
  • Pop Mixing: Similar to Popular Mixing of the original Technika, but with minor changes, such as slightly larger notes. The effects such as fade in, fade out, blink, and blind are free for use rather than charging max points in the first version of technika.
  • Club Mixing: The equivalent of Technical Mixing from the original DJMax Technika. Newly added are Non-stop Remixes. (see below)
  • Selection screen: The player selects a song by choosing one of 9 squares that appear per page, similar to Jubeat. A Random select feature is also available.
  • Crew Race: A list of player's names appears, which represents a specific course and the record achieved.
  • A new "long purple note", which has sections that are held and tapped.
  • Improved visual quality and touch panel.
  • Different MAX judgment system.
  • Song note patterns are referred to as they were in the DJMax's Windows releases and Portable games. (Normal, Hard, and MX styles)
  • Non-stop Remix: Allows the player to play a set of remixes from all previous DJMAX games. Only Available in Club Mixing. Examples are Son of Sun Full Version, Y Extended Mix, Thor Extended Mix and NB Ranger Non-Stop Remix (NB Rangers, NB Rangers Returns, NB Power, and Dark Envy all as one song).
  • Fever: Similar to the Fever used in other DJMAX games. The Fever gauge is located in between the two lines, and the button is located where "BGM Boost" was in the original Technika.
  • Max Points shop: Platinum Crew users are able to purchase various items using MAX Points earned in-game, such as avatars, DJ icons, notes, emblems and effectors.

Crew Race[edit]

DJMax Technika 2 has a Crew Race system. A player can create a Crew by spending 10000 MAX Points. This player will also become the Crew's leader, the Crew Master. The Crew Master can invite other players to join the Crew. A Crew can have up to 10 players.

The Crew Master can buy emblems or plates to customize the crew's icon in the MAX Point Shop. If the Crew Master hands the leadership position to another member, the emblems and plates will transfer over to the new leader.

The Crew Master can select a course from the Crew's members to represent the Crew on the Platinum Crew website. This course will appear in the Crew Race mode, which resets every Tuesday. Players can play against other Crew's courses in Crew Race mode. Extra MAX Points will be given if the player beats the course creator's score.
