Dance Dance Revolution X4, abbreviated DDR X4 or simply X4, is a music video game, and a part of the Dance Dance Revolution series. The arcade version of DDR X4 was revealed by Konami on September 2, 2012. A sequel to Dance Dance Revolution X3, X4 began public beta testing on September 8, 2012. Promotional information for the game reveal the full name for the game, called DanceDanceRevolution X3 VS 3rdMIX due to the new "3rdMIX" mode in the game. It is released in Japan on January 16, 2013 for dedicated cabinet, January 30, 2013 for upgrade kits, and February 16, 2013 in Asia. The game was confirmed to be "temporarily suspended" for United States, but had been officially canceled in Europe.[1]

Development

Development on X4 began shortly after X3 was released. From September 8 to September 10, 2011, a location test was held in Akihabara, Tokyo. This location test revealed new songs and other features. These features include the new Target Score and BEMANI folders. The menu screens also got an update; they are now blue instead of green. Other enhancements to the theme were also made, such as the animation of the background (these animations are very similar to the one used on Dance Dance Revolution III). Konami also announced that there will be a new 3rdMIX mode, where the player can play a full HD version of DDR 3rdMIX.

Features

  • 3rdMIX mode. The player will be able to play a full HD version of "DanceDanceRevolution 3rdMIX", including all licenses(excluding STRICTLY BUSINESS) from the game. New features will be added on the mode, such as the e-AMUSEMENT capabilities.
  • Quick Play mode, a similar mode to "Marathon Mode" from DDR X3 in which PASELI users can use the pay-per-song method for as much stages as the arcade allows. For some time, this mode is also the only way to access the Challenge charts of some songs.[2]
  • Target Score, which allows players to view machine and e-Amusement records without playing the song.[3]
  • "BEMANI Title" sort, which allows songs to be sorted by the BEMANI title they originally appeared in.[3]
  • Character Select is unlocked, returning characters from DDR X2
  • There are some arcade machines of DDR X3 in which judgment of streaked notes and the quantity of combos are placed under the note strip while others are placed on top of the note strip.
DDR X4 will also support "e-AMUSEMENT GATE", a community website where players can form groups, share scores, and interact with other players.

Enjoy Level

As in previous games, DDR X4 vs 2ndMix uses level unlocking system to unlock some of the game's unlockable content. Players need to fulfill certain requirements to fill up the "Enjoy Level" bar and when it is full, the player levels up. This requires e-Amusement. Most of Enjoy Level unlocks are songs taken from North American DDR 2010 and DDR III, in addition to new songs.

Extra Stage

DDR X4 also implements a new system for accessing Extra Stage. "Star system" can now be used to access Extra Stage. When the player clear a song, they will get stars (shown below the grade) depending on what grade they get:

  • AAA grade = 3 stars
  • AA grade = 2 stars
  • A-D grade = 1 star
  • Song or course failed = 0 star
  • Getting a full combo = (Number of stars for a certain performance grade [AAA, AA, A, B, C, or D] + 1) stars

A slot with 9 star slots will be displayed below the results screen. When the player earn 9 stars, they can access Extra Stage regardless of their grade. After using it though, they will reset and the player must earn them back. Note that this is only available for players with e-AMUSEMENT. The new song available for Extra Stage is PARANOiA Survivor XXXimum. In addition, the Encore Extra Stage songs are eventually available on Extra Stage after a specified date and if the player fulfill a secret requirement using the star system, with Flew Far Faster being available on January 25, 2013, Unique on April 25, 2013, and as of July 23, 2013, all Extra Stage songs have been unlocked for regular play.

Encore Extra Stage

The requirement for accessing Encore Extra Stage is the same from DDR X2; scoring AA or better under Expert on the specific song during Extra Stage. Scoring AA or better on Amalgamation will unlock Flew Far Faster. Two additional songs were added on Encore Extra Stage after a specified date: Unique on January 25, 2013 and Hell and Toe on April 25, 2013. All Encore Extra Stage songs have been unlocked as of July 23, 2013.

Extra Tour

A new Extra Stage event, called "EXTRA Tour" was announced on May 12, 2013 and was started on May 14, 2013. In this event, new songs will be added as Extra Stage. They will appear in specific regions at first and move to other regions each day. The first song, Dream to Nightmare will appear in Hokkaido and Okinawa Prefecture and move to the south (for Hokkaido) and north (for Okinawa) until they eventually land on each other's region.[4]. There is also a second route, starting on May 16, 2012 from Mie Prefecture and Fukui Prefecture. The new song available in these routes is Passacaglia[5].

The third route have been announced on May 19, 2013 that was started on May 22, 2013 from Hokkaido and Okinawa Prefecture. The new song available in this route is New York EVOLVED.[6]. The fourth and final route was announced on May 26, 2013 and was started on May 30, 2013 from Hokkaido and Okinawa Prefecture yet again. The new song available in this route is London EVOLVED.[7]

After playing all Extra Tour songs at least once, scoring AA or better on Expert on any of these songs unlocks the Encore Extra Stage, Dream to Nightmare. The Extra Tour event was ended on July 22, 2013[8] and all songs were unlocked for regular play.[9]

Crossover DDR

On March 2, 2013, a new event called "Crossover DDR" was started. In this event, players can unlock the 3rdMix-exclusive songs for use in X4 mode. Players will simply need to play the charts of the songs in 3rdMix mode to unlock them in X4 mode. As 3rdMix Mode only feature Basic, Difficult, and Expert charts for Single (or only Basic and Difficult in Double), the Beginner chart will be automatically unlocked once the player unlock at least one of the main difficulties, while the Double Expert as well as Single and Double Challenge charts (which all songs have) will unlocked once the player unlocks all other charts.

Three boss songs also can be unlocked through this event. Clearing all charts in Normal mode of the 2ndMix mode will unlock "Flew Far Faster" in Extra Stage, while clearing all charts in Hard mode will unlock "PARANOiA Survivor XXXimum". Scoring AA or better on these songs on Expert unlock the Encore Extra Stage, Dream to Nightmare. The 1-life battery in Encore Extra Stage is uniquely made to fail the player if they get GREAT or lower (instead of GOOD or lower).

The event was ended on November 5, 2012 and all songs were unlocked for regular play.

Internet Ranking

The game will have Internet Ranking like previous games. As usual, it uses the courses available in the game. The game uses e-Amusement to upload the scores to network. There are five Internet Rankings :

  • INTERNET RANKING#1 = February 8, 2013 - February 22, 2013 ~ uses HYPER and vs X4
  • INTERNET RANKING#2 = February 29, 2013 - March 14, 2013 ~ uses VOCAL and UPPER

  • INTERNET RANKING#5 = July 4, 2013 - July 22, 2013 ~ uses EVOLVED and Revolution

Daily Special

On AOU 2012, Konami announced a new event called "Daily Special" that will start on February 20, 2012. In this event, a new BEMANI crossover will be available on each day of the week (from Monday to Friday). The cycle of the song unlocking will be done on 12.00 P.M. (JP UTC) and requires e-Amusement. The songs are :

  • Love is a Danger Zone (Cranky Mix)
  • Ignis Fatuus
  • Hypnosis (Synthwulf Mix)
  • Elise

The cycle of the song unlocking had been shuffled three times, on March 19[10], April 16, and May 14, 2012. An additional event, called "Weekend Special" was started on May 5, 2012. It occurs only during weekends (Saturday and Sunday) and also cycle the songs, only instead of days, they will cycle based on hours.[11] Both events were ended on May 28, 2012 and all songs were unlocked for regular play.
