beatmania, also known colloquially as beatmania (US) or BMUS to distinguish it from the original arcade game beatmania, is the first version of the music video game beatmania IIDX to be released in the United States. It was officially released by Konami on March 28, 2006, for the PlayStation 2 video game console.[1]

Song list[edit]

There are 58 tracks in this game (not counting the fact that 20, November is "single mix" on Single and "radio edit" on Double). All tracks are playable in Game Mode, and then in Free Mode after being played once in Game Mode. While there are no hidden songs, only a few are available when starting the game. More appear as the game progresses, but once the game is started again only those same few are available.[citation needed]
