Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party 3 is a rhythm-based dancing game for the Nintendo Wii. It is a video game released by Konami in 2009. The game can be played using a dance pad, the classic controller, or the Wii Remote and Nunchuck combination. It has two games preceding it: Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party and Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party 2.

Gameplay[edit]

Gameplay remains relatively unchanged from the original game. New modes on Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party 3 include Tournament Mode, Relaxed Mode, DDR School, Hypermove Mode, and Wii Balance Board Modes. Returning modes include Free Play Mode and Training Mode. Dropped modes include the "Groove Circuit/Arena" Mode. It has been replaced with Tournament Mode.[3] The use of hand markers have been removed from Free Play Mode. They are still existent in DDR School and Hypermove Mode, but are called Punch Markers.

Arrows[edit]

In game, arrow timing is scored based on a system with Marvelous, Perfect, Great, Good, Almost, and Miss. If four arrows are stepped on consecutively with a "Great" score or higher, a combo is started. If a full combo is reached, a "Full Combo Finished" message should appear at the end of a song.

Gimmicks[edit]

Unlike the two games preceding this one, gimmicks must be unlocked to be used in game. New gimmicks include the Sudden Arrow, the Minimizer and Normalizer, and Diagonal Arrows.

Music[edit]

The songs in red are "boss songs." The songs with padlocks next to them are locked until certain conditions are met in the game, and songs with a clapperboard next to them have music videos featured. A selection of licensed and original tracks from this game were ported over to the arcade release of Dance Dance Revolution X2.
