beatmania III

Release Information

  • Release date: March 8th, 2000

General Information / Changes

BMIIITitle.jpg
  • First title of the beatmania III series.
  • The last game with the Dancemania licenses from beatmania 5thMIX.
  • Though it retains the same 5-key gameplay of beatmania, beatmania III differs in the following ways:
    • beatmania III runs on BEMANI FIREBEAT HARDWARE, the same hardware used in pop'n music 4 through 8 and ee'MALL, as opposed to the more primitive BEMANI DJ-MAIN HARDWARE. As a result, songs have more fluid, full-screen videos and animations, and the interface is much more colorful.
      • Unfortunately, memory limitations leave songs with only having 5-10 seconds of unique animations repeated throughout a song.
    • A much more expanded effector table.
    • beatmania III has music previews; beatmania does not.
    • beatmania III features a foot pedal, used on a few select songs as a seventh button to press. It can also be used as a substitute for one of the five keys.
    • A 3.5 inch floppy disk drive, which one can use to save scores with, as well as unlock songs and game modes.
    • Unlike beatmania, beatmania III very rarely removed songs from the original beatmania series.
    • beatmania III's max points possible for a song is 100,000 points (beatmania had switched to 200,000 max points a year earlier), which continued through the entire series.
  • Only title in the beatmania III series with brand-new songs. Subsequent games were released as "APPEND" titles with the same new songs as their original beatmania counterpart (along with new LONG versions in the case of 6thMIX and 7thMIX.)
  • 4 songs have charts that change depending on the player's performance. If the player gets a high number of BADs and POORs, the chart changes to a more simple version of itself.
