Music of Dance Dance Revolution (1998 video game)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The music of Dance Dance Revolution is the collective soundtracks of the initial Dance Dance Revolution game in Konami's music simulation series. The soundtracks rely heavily on licensed music from Toshiba EMI's Dancemania series and also contain original songs produced by Konami's in-house artists Naoki Maeda and Yuichi Asami. The original arcade game contains only 11 tracks and the PlayStation released contains 16. Due to the staggered release of the game in other regions additional songs from newer releases in the series appear in the Asian, European and Americas releases.

List of tracks[edit]

Japan was the first region Dance Dance Revolution was released in.[1] Many Dance Dance Revolution fan sites list one of the last test builds of the game as an actual release and in turn, the released game as a "1.5" upgrade or the "Internet Ranking Version".[2] Konami's official website for DDR mentions only a single release. The Asian, European and Americas releases of DDR, called Dancing Stage in Europe, came after the Japanese arcade release of Dance Dance Revolution 2ndMix and contains tracks from both games.[3][4][5] Europe received an updated release that added the internet ranking codes from the Japanese release and three additional tracks that remain exclusive to that particular release.[6][7] The PlayStation release of DDR is exclusive to Japan and contains different additional tracks from DDR 2ndMix.[8][9]
