Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party (ダンスダンスレボリューションホッテストパーティー Dansu Dansu Reboryūshon Hottesuto Pātī?), known as Dancing Stage Hottest Party in the European and Oceanic regions, is a video game released by Konami in 2007 and 2008 to several countries for the Wii console. Konami took the game beyond the traditional setup of Dance Dance Revolution by incorporating the Wii Remote and the standard dance pad into a full body motion game. It has two sequels, Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party 2 and Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party 3.

Unlike the previous release of Dance Dance Revolution on a Nintendo console, Dance Dance Revolution Mario Mix, Hottest Party was not a collaboration between Konami and Nintendo. It is not a sequel, but the Nintendo GameCube accessories for Mario Mix are compatible with Hottest Party.[4]

Gameplay[edit]

Gameplay is largely unchanged from other Dance Dance Revolution games. However, the game features additional modes taking advantage of the hardware of the Wii. The game allows the integration of the Wii Remote into gameplay, where steps can be replaced by markers requiring a hand motion with the remote. Other step types include steps which must be hit twice.

In Friendship Mode, the highest step judgement is counted for all players

Other modes[edit]

Hottest Party also includes several other modes, including a Free Mode, multi player modes, a battle mode, and Sync mode, where several players play the same chart, and only the lowest step judgment on each arrow will count. Friendship mode is an opposite, where the highest step judgment is counted. Hottest Party also includes Workout Mode.

Music[edit]

The soundtrack of Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party differs in the Japanese release. "B4U (The Acolyte Mix)", "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)", "Rhythm is a Dancer" and "Unappreciated" are only featured in the North American and European/Oceanic release. "B4U (Rising Sun Mix)", "Double Tornard", "Pluto the First" and "True♥Love (Clubstar's True Club Mix)" are included in their place. "Lessons by DJ" in the Japanese release has Japanese language voice overs during the song, whereas all other releases have English voice overs.
