Song Connections / Remixes


MAX.(period)'s banner.
  • MAX.(period) appears in DanceDanceRevolution (2014) as the ENCORE EXTRA STAGE song of the Replicant D-ignition event, achieved by obtaining a AA or greater on EGOISM 440. RISKY, REVERSE, and 1.5x Hi-SPEED options were forced when playing the song. Clearing it would unlock "The Dark One" as a selectable dancer.
    • As of Replicant D-ignition's 2nd Phase, MAX.(period) was moved down to EXTRA STAGE, but could still be accessed as an ENCORE EXTRA STAGE by obtaining a AA or greater on EGOISM 440.
      • MAX.(period) also received brand-new CHALLENGE charts as part of the 2nd Phase of the Replicant D-ignition event.
    • Note that obtaining a AA or greater on MAX.(period) as the EXTRA STAGE would immediately trigger Over The “Period” as the ENCORE EXTRA STAGE and unlock RINON as a selectable dancer.
    • From August 6th to December 23rd, 2015, MAX.(period) could be unlocked via the EXTRA ATTACK unlocking system, after unlocking EGOISM 440. Note that the SURVIVED BONUS meter had to be filled on BEGINNER, then BASIC, DIFFICULT, and then finally EXPERT.
      • MAX.(period)'s CHALLENGE charts could be unlocked via EXTRA ATTACK after unlocking Over The “Period”'s EXPERT charts.
    • From December 24th, 2015 onwards, MAX.(period) has been automatically unlocked for all players.
  • During the 180 BPM section of the song, MAX.(period)'s charts (except for BEGINNER) use portions of PARANOiA's charts.
    • MAX.(period)'s new CHALLENGE charts use parts of PARANOiA (X-Special)'s charts.
  • Despite not appearing in an arcade DanceDanceRevolution release until nearly 12 years after its console debut, MAX.(period)'s banner could be found in the DanceDanceRevolution SuperNOVA data.
  • In MAX.(period)'s video, a video clip of PARANOiA being selected and played on the original DanceDanceRevolution game is shown.
  • MAX.(period)'s jacket and new background image in the video feature the Wii dance mat, instead of the PlayStation / PlayStation 2 dance mat used in its original background and banner.
    • MAX.(period)'s video is also now played in the background of a midnight blue-recolored version of Valkyrie dimension's pink Replicant D-action background dance stage and is not full-screen.
  • When MAX.(period) is played and cleared as an ENCORE EXTRA STAGE, the "CLEARED" shutter is delayed by about nine seconds (compared to when played on any other stage), to synchronize it with the sound effect of the shutter in the song.
  • MAX.(period) ranked #1 in the BEMANI Fan Site CHECK!SONGS Monthly Ranking list for May 2015.
  • MAX.(period)'s difficulty changes from DanceDanceRevolution A20 were applied to DanceDanceRevolution A in March 27th, 2019.
