Release Information

  • Release Date: October 19th, 2001
  • Slogan: 僕は踊るために生まれてきた。 DDRMAXはそんな君のために生まれた。 (Boku wa odoru tame ni umaretekita. DDRMAX wa sonna kimi no tame ni umareta.; I was born to dance. DDRMAX was born for you.)

General Information / Changes

  • DDRMAX introduced/changed a lot of things in the arcade DanceDanceRevolution series, including:
    • An in-game options menu, which you can choose before any stage by holding down the Start button before a song.
    • Introduction of Freeze Arrows, long, green arrows you must hold for the duration of its appearance; failure to do so will not dock Dance Points or break combo, but will result in a significant loss of the Dance Meter.
      • A screen demonstrating the usage of Freeze Arrows is shown if LIGHT or STANDARD difficulty is selected.
    • A new announcer, Londell "Taz" Hicks, who would be used for the next four arcade games, up to SuperNOVA2.
    • Scores now having a fixed maximum amount of points, regardless of step count: 50,000,000 points. Points increase as a song nears its end.
    • Jumps now adding two to your combo (but count as only one step for all other purposes). Jumps would go back to counting as one step in SuperNOVA.
    • The return of EXTRA STAGE, this time with exclusive songs playable through it.
    • BASIC, TRICK, and MANIAC difficulties being renamed to LIGHT, STANDARD, and HEAVY, respectively.
    • Difficulty ratings being removed, making DDRMAX the only DanceDanceRevolution arcade game in any region without difficulty ratings. Ratings would return in the next game.
      • FOLLOW ME and FLASH IN THE NIGHT have never received difficulty ratings, as they never appeared on any other DanceDanceRevolution games.
    • Introduction of the GROOVE RADAR, which shows five attributes for a song: STREAM, VOLTAGE, CHAOS, AIR, and FREEZE.
      • Unlike subsequent DanceDanceRevolution titles, it has numbers next to the attributes, but only when pressing down the Start button before the Groove Radar is displayed. The number listing wouldn't appear again until DanceDanceRevolution (2014).
  • All songs that were present in 5thMIX were removed.
    • As such, this is the only mainline DanceDanceRevolution arcade game in any region to not feature a PARANOiA series song.
    • That said, there is an early mockup screenshot of the select music screen which still features songs from 5thMIX.
  • The KONAMI original REMIX CD Title has been renamed to just KONAMI original.
  • The default arrow design has been slightly modified, with a rounded tip rather than a V-shaped cut on the tail end, known as NORMAL in the special arrow options. The original arrow design would be revived in DanceDanceRevolution X as the CLASSIC arrow option.
  • In-game options menu introduces eight new modifiers to the mainline arcade series:
    • Speed modifiers of x1.5, x2, x3, x5, and x8, in which the speed of arrows scrolling and spacing of arrows match.
    • REVERSE, in which the scroll direction of the arrows is reversed, descending towards the target arrows at the bottom of the screen.
    • SOLO, which replicates the arrow color scheme used in the Solo sub-series. It was renamed to RAINBOW in DanceDanceRevolution SuperNOVA.
      • Until SuperNOVA, this modifier was forced to both sides, even if only one player selected it.
    • BOOST, in which each arrow increases its speed as it reaches the stepping zone.
  • Unlike the previous game, the sort order can now be changed by simply pressing both the left and right selection buttons without having to press the start button afterwards.
  • First DanceDanceRevolution game with Premium Mode.
    • Double Premium allows you to play either Single or Double mode for only one credit, while Joint Premium lets you play any mode for one credit.
  • First DanceDanceRevolution game to show a screen indicating the current stage (e.g., 1st STAGE, FINAL STAGE) before the song starts.
  • Although NORI NORI NORI and The Centre Of The Heart (STONEBRIDGE CLUBMIX) received new LIGHT charts, their old BASIC charts from DanceDanceRevolution 5thMIX CS are still playable as EDIT DATA.
  • Color labeling on the songwheel has changed:
  • Licenses are used as name entry music after getting a high score:
    • 1st: WWW.BLONDE GIRL (MOMO MIX)
    • 2nd: FLASH IN THE NIGHT
    • 3rd: WITCH DOCTOR (GIANTS TOONS VERSION)
    • 4th: BYE BYE BABY BALLOON
    • 5th: HIGHS OFF U(Scorccio XY Mix)
  • Total songs: 42

FINAL/EXTRA/ONE MORE EXTRA STAGE

All these songs are unlocked automatically on 1st PASS.

To play true...(Trance Sunrise Mix), clear any two songs by either BeForU or Riyu Kosaka (小坂りゆ). The song will be available for play as the FINAL STAGE. The possible songs are:

  • Firefly by BeForU.
  • DIVE(more deep & deeper style) by BeForU.
  • true... (radio edit) by 小坂りゆ.

The song also appears in the ROULETTE at any stage, and it is also playable if EVENT MODE is active. Regardless of method, all difficulties will be available.

To play MAX 300 on EXTRA STAGE, you must clear a HEAVY chart with a AA or higher on your last stage. MAX 300's HEAVY chart will become available as your EXTRA STAGE, with no way to change the difficulty or the song. You will start with a full dance gauge, but it will not recover as you play. You will be put onto the REVERSE mod and a SPEED modifier of 1.5.

MAX 300 also appears in the ROULETTE at any stage. When selected with this method, all difficulties will be available.

To play CANDY☆ on ONE MORE EXTRA STAGE, you must AA MAX 300's HEAVY chart on EXTRA STAGE. CANDY☆'s HEAVY chart will then appear as your ONE MORE EXTRA STAGE. Like with the EXTRA STAGE, you cannot change the song or chart.

The ONE MORE EXTRA STAGE is on a RISKY life gauge; breaking your combo or getting an N.G. on a Freeze Arrow instantly fails the stage. As with MAX 300, 1.5 SPEED and REVERSE modifiers are on.
