Release Information

Beatmania IIDX 16 EMPRESS.png

  • Location test dates: June 25th to July 1st, 2008
  • Release date: November 19th, 2008
  • Slogan: 超、頂、蝶、煌く (Chou, Chou, Chou Kirameku) Though it literally means "Super Sparkling Crown and Butterflies", it could be also read to mean "Super, super, super sparkly" due to a pun involving the word "chou" in Japanese.

General Information / Changes

  • The interface is pinks and fuchsias, with a jewel and butterfly motif. The logo returns to the original "beatmania IIDX" one for the first time since beatmania IIDX 12 HAPPY SKY.
  • New songs are in pink text, and full combo splashes are now pink.
  • A few licenses appear as part of a new collaboration with avex's house nation compilation series. It would be one of only 4 BEMANI releases to feature the partnership, the others being beatmania IIDX 17 SIRIUS, DanceDanceRevolution フルフル♪パーティー, and DanceDanceRevolution UNIVERSE3.
  • Last game where the options you have chosen appear on the pre-song splash screen, ending a tradition that began in beatmania IIDX 8th style.
  • Some new sound effects on the menus.
  • HAZARD mode has been added, and is available by highlighting FREE mode and pressing the three black keys. In HAZARD mode, breaking combo will result in instant stage failure. However, the player is guaranteed four stages regardless of clear/fail status on the first three.
    • In HAZARD mode, the Clear Rate indicator will change to instead display Full Combo rate.
  • First arcade beatmania IIDX game where all the new songs are given full Double charts.
  • First style to feature a different style of music for its extra stage system (EMPRESS PLACE) depending on which level of difficulty is chosen; the pitch shifts up to an eerier minor when the ANOTHER difficulty is highlighted.
  • Brings back the Fail Window from 10th style-DistorteD.
  • All dj nagureo songs made after 4th style have been removed from the songlist. Several BeForU songs were removed as well.
  • All non-licensed SLAKE songs have been revived, except for I'M FOR REAL and LOVE IS DROWING.
  • First arcade style where both the default EXTRA STAGE and the ONE MORE EXTRA STAGE are composed by commission artists.
  • Release date is a play on 19,November, which was released 10 styles before in beatmania IIDX 6th style.
  • The beatmania IIDX 16 ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK booklet contains a review of the entire soundtrack by top ranker beatmania IIDX player DOLCE.
  • First beatmania IIDX game whose soundtrack has been released on the Japanese iTunes store, under the title beatmania IIDX 16 EMPRESS Music Selection.
    • Despite the "Music Selection" subtitle, it contains all the KONAMI originals from the game.
    • Licenses do not appear on the iTunes versions of beatmania IIDX albums (except for three).
  • eAMUSEMENT support for beatmania IIDX 16 EMPRESS ended on December 31st, 2009 for non-mobile users, and on January 31st, 2010 for mobile users.
  • Total number of songs: 528
