However if you mobile phone has a touch-screen capability you can also play the game in year 2009 version using mode which is similar to DJMax Technika where you do very specific touch gestures to control the game.

The upcoming mobile game is called DJMax Ray, it developed by Pentavision and published by Neowiz Internet.
