What's Different About USA

  • Game modes include Game Mode (AKA "Arcade Mode" in the Japanese versions), Free Mode, Expert Mode, Practice Mode (not similar to Beginner Mode, but looks more like Lesson Mode in CS DDR games), and Training Mode.
  • Another difficulties and additional IIDX Expert courses are available, but they must be unlocked by completing the song list in Free Mode by playing every song in the game, excluding default Free Mode songs.
  • Songs in beatmania mode have only one difficulty chart.
    • Additionally, no US exclusives in the beatmania IIDX mode have Another charts.
  • Regarding song charts, nothing has been "toned down", but "very minor changes have been made to some of the 'annoying' measures within songs in Hyper mode. Another charts haven't been touched."
  • "Just Great" is now called "Perfect."
  • Difficulties are listed as "Beginner", "Normal", and "Hyper". Another remains unchanged.
  • Difficulties are now on a 1-10 scale, using stars. Another charts are individually rated, too.
  • Hard has been renamed to "Challenge", or "CHA" for short.
  • In beatmania mode, Free Scratch Zones have returned. Free Scratch Zones are areas in songs where you can scratch as much or as little as you want. Scratching here will only increase your money score - it has no effect on your EX score or grade.
  • There is a replay mode to save replays of your songs.
  • The records screen has note counts, money score, playcount, and max combo organized in a DDR-style grid.
  • Songs must be played in Game Mode before they appear in Free Mode, similar to beatmania IIDX 3rd style CS through 6th style CS.
  • Grade requirements have been reduced. You now only need 7/9 possible EX points for a AAA rank, 6/9 for AA, etc.
  • All beatmania songs received new videos.
  • Near all of the overlays have been removed from the beatmania IIDX videos. Songs with unique videos remain untouched for the most part, though.
