Later Appearing Songs

From RemyWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

It is known that KONAMI has a habit of having songs that appear in earlier BEMANI games, such as data that contains graphics, charts, and even song cuts of unused licensed and KONAMI original songs, before their proper debuts. This page will list every known song that appeared earlier in some way (HDD data, location test, master song list, etc.) before its proper debut.

Note that unlike the Scrapped Songs page, this lists songs that only actually appeared in a final BEMANI game.

Songs are listed by the game they were going to debut on, not the game they finally appeared in. It also doesn't list songs that were going to be transferred to another BEMANI game when they originally were already in one (i.e. FLOWER being scheduled for beatmania IIDX 19 Lincle after its premiere in REFLEC BEAT and jubeat knit APPEND).

This page is under HEAVY construction. For songs whose movements aren't covered by official KONAMI sources, please use the Talk Page.

    • References to this song can be found on the beatmania 5thMIX data. Instead, it was later released months later in beatmania IIDX 3rd style (it never appeared as a playable song in the original beatmania series, though).

  • Horizons of Promise / BEMANI Sound Team "SPIRITUAL RIDE"
    • According to Horizons of Promise's sound comments, the song was supposed to debut in Rootage, but time constrains resulted in it not making it in. It instead appeared in beatmania IIDX 27 HEROIC VERSE.

  • BEMANI PRO LEAGUE Theme / BEMANI Sound Team "Sota F."
    • As its title implies, BEMANI PRO LEAGUE Theme is the main theme of the BEMANI PRO LEAGUE event, originally scheduled to start in 2020.
