Dance Dance Revolution, released in Europe as Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party 4, is a music video game in the Dance Dance Revolution series developed by Konami. Unveiled at E3 2010, it was released for the Wii in North America on November 16, 2010.
While the Classic gameplay mode remains similar to previous editions, it is also accompanied by a new Choreography mode, which incorporates motions performed using the Wii Remote and Nunchuck alongside foot motions with the dance pad to form choreographed dance routines for each song. Goal-based challenges are also provided, which can allow players to earn points which unlock additional outfits and songs. As with the previous version, a mode is also provided that utilizes the Wii Balance Board.

IGN gave the game a 7.0 out of 10, noting that while the series was beginning to feel antiquated due to the increasing of realistic dance games such as Dance Central, the core gameplay of Dance Dance Revolution still "worked" in their opinion. Its selection of multiplayer modes were praised as good changes of pace from the classic mode, and the Choreography mode was noted as being fun and not too difficult, but panned for inaccurate motion detection and for not being as evolutionary as its competitors. Its soundtrack was considered favorable, due to its mixture of more mainstream music from the past and present along with the typical Japanese-produced music common to the series, but noted that Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" did not fit with the overall upbeat theme of the game.
