KONAMI announced today that DanceDanceRevolution will be hitting the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system for the very first time! The latest release for the best-selling franchise combines the physically engaging, innovative and easy-to-pick-up-and-play mechanics of all DanceDanceRevolution releases with all-new features that maximize the technological capabilities of the PS3 to its fullest. New additions include the PlayStation Move motion-control compatibility, all-new game modes, increased difficulty level, improved graphics and recording features.
In DanceDanceRevolution for PS3, players will find the game offers much more than following the arrows with their feet. In this iteration of DanceDanceRevolution, players will use both their hands and feet simultaneously, via PlayStation Move and controller mat, providing the most rhythmic and realistic dancing yet! This feature makes for a truly interactive dance experience Additionally, compatibility with the PlayStation® EYE allows the player and their dance to appear on-screen. Players can bring their creativity to full potential by uploading the recorded dance video online and throughout social media networks. The recorded video can be uploaded on YouTube and Facebook through the Video Editor & Uploader of the PlayStation®3 to share with their friends and other DanceDanceRevolution fans.
Never short on a wide variety of great tunes, DanceDanceRevolution for the PS3 comes packaged with more than 30 all-new original songs by Konami’s original artists and licensed tracks from some of today’s hottest musicians. The music never has to stop, becase now players can download new songs and add them through the PlayStation®Network. The game offers two all-new gameplay modes – Dance Off and Club Mode. The Dance Off Mode is similar to a dance battle between players where they take turns to play. The player who was able to step and dance more accurately will gain more points and will be the winner. The Club Mode is geared more toward hardcore DanceDanceRevolution fans where the player can play songs consecutively. The difficulty level varies depending on how well the player is dancing and several different gimmicks appear as wel. Players can dance from 4 to 20 songs consecutively in this mode. If the player changes the options to non-stop, they can keep dancing until their gauge is empty! The game also features a high-difficulty level – the Challenge Level – for the experienced player where there are not only just up, down, right and left arrows but with 4 diagonal arrows as well making it the ultimate challenge!
DanceDanceRevolution for the PS3 will bring owners of this console the same fitness benefits that PlayStation®2 owners and other consoles have all enjoyed. The original get-up-and-move video game, DanceDanceRevolution has become known worldwide for its effectiveness as a fitness and weight loss tool. Like its predecessors, the PS3 version come with a user-friendly "Workout Mode" that allows players to easily manage their personal information and watch their calories melt away on a calorie display located at the results screen.
The release of the first-ever PS3 version in franchise history is just one more milestone in an action packed year for DanceDanceRevolution. The game has been recognized for its get-up-and-move fitness impact by a host of organizations including the state of West Virginia, who has used DanceDanceRevolution throughout all their public schools, culminating in the 2010 DanceDanceRevolution West Virginia State Championship Tournament. Brought together with the help of the West Virginia Children Health Insurance Program and Sony Computer Entertainment America, DanceDanceRevolution continues to be used throughout the state as a too.
