I have a lot of fond memories of the DanceDance Revolution arcade cabinets. Even if I did probably make a public spectacle of myself smashing out Cotton Eye Joe on hard mode in my size 11 shoes. In terms of playing this game at home, however, the chances that you have a full-size machine (or even a play mat) are doubtful.
Now, we should note that playing this game isn’t entirely straight forward. Largely because it’s only been launched on their Japanese localized website. Fortunately, with the help of Google translate, getting set-up isn’t too much of a chore. We’ll give you a step by step guide on how to proceed though.
The game did take a few minutes to download on my PC, but with around 12 (completely unrecognizable) tracks to pick from, you’ll quickly be smashing those keys in Konami’s DanceDanceRevolution browser beta! Oh, and just in case it needed to be said, you don’t need a dance mat. You can control the actions via your keyboard arrows.
While the music tracks sound like something produced on Dance Ejay (there’s another blast from the past, right?) it’s a great bit of disposable fun and if you are looking at ways and means to pass the time, it is free (albeit, for a limited time)!
What do you think? Are you going to give this a try? If so, let us know the song and your score in the comments!
Sony yesterday confirmed that another former PlayStation exclusive was coming to the PC. Yes, Days…
