This is a beatmania REMIX of TwinBee, which is one of KONAMI's flagship titles.
Isn't the ParaPara-styled Eurobeat and nostalgic SCC sounds a big hit with gamers?

Dance Maniax

The theme from the shooting game masterpiece "TwinBee" is included here, so those from the video game generation will probably cry! After the "1, 2, 3, 4" countdown, that nostalgic melody plays. Then, a more up-tempo pop song welcomes you, as if the TwinBee received the Bell Power-Up. Perhaps the game's original sounds used in the opening and ending is KONAMI fanservice?

Video Production Information

This song is a crossover from beatmaniaIII.
When this song was released on beatmaniaIII, which is part of the same beatmania family lineage, GOLI and I raced to the cabinet, and I remember exclaiming "wow" after hearing it.
Thanks to the support of the beatmaniaIII team, this time the song can be played in IIDX using the seven keys.
Eurobeat has become a popular genre even in the IIDX series, but this song shows us an brand-new horizon from the songs currently included in the game.

Staff Comments


This game is too nostalgic for my generation. I was obsessed with playing it when I was an elementary school student. So, I drew the background with the image of the hot Famicom version of TwinBee. The words were drawn with rough pixels to give it a retro feeling.

For the movie, I added the motions while remembering the hot Famicom version of TwinBee. Did you find anything you missed, especially the bell appearing from the cloud?
