Dance Dance Revolution SuperNova (ダンスダンスレボリューションスーパーノヴァ, Dansu Dansu Reboryūshon Sūpānova), released in Europe as Dancing Stage SuperNova, is an arcade and PlayStation 2 game in the Dance Dance Revolution series of music video games. It was produced by Konami and released through Betson Enterprises. The game was released in Europe on April 28, 2006, followed shortly by a North American release on May 15 and a Japanese release on July 12. Unlike previous DDR arcade releases, all versions have the same features and song list. It is the 5th official arcade release in Europe, the 3rd official arcade release in North America, and the 9th traditional arcade release in Japan.[citation needed]


The game was released in North America on May 15, 2006, with the first confirmed sighting at Disneyland in Anaheim, California at the Tomorrowland Starcade. Its release in Japan was delayed slightly so that the game software could be updated to fix the reported timing issues, and was later released with an extra song (the aforementioned remix of Flow) in late July 2006.[citation needed]

Dance Dance Revolution SuperNova 2, sometimes abbreviated as DDR SN2, was released on September 25, 2007 by Konami to the North American PlayStation 2 audience. SuperNova 2 features the standard gameplay modes as well as new modes to challenge seasoned players. The soundtrack ranges from classic Konami Originals to new pop and dance standards like music from Justin Timberlake, Gwen Stefani, Ian Van Dahl and Goldfrapp. Also featured is EyeToy support for additional gameplay elements as well as mini-games using the camera and online play through the PlayStation Network allowing players to face-off with other players across the country. Released for the PlayStation 2 before the multi-regional arcade version of Dance Dance Revolution SuperNova 2, the game gave American players a peek at the refined game engine and graphical improvements that were to come. The game was well received as a solid addition to the DDR lineup.[3]
