beatmania 3rdMIX is the third in Konami's series of 5-key music games.

Song Selection

Much like in 2ndMIX, 3rdMIX has a hidden debug feature which allows the player to select a song freely by holding Test and pressing a specific combination of keys at the same time in the song selection screen. It should be noted that this doesn't work while Event Mode is turned on.

Oddly, the "nagureo kidding style" and "crack style" charts for "20, november" and "attack the music" (respectively) cannot be accessed this way.

Regional Differences

The Korean release of beatmania 3rdMIX, titled beatstage 3rdMIX, did several changes to the game's songlist:

  • The songs find out and Believe again are absent.
  • The songs Believe again HYPER MEGA MIX and LUV TO ME THIRD-MIX were replaced with their English versions from beatmania completeMIX.

Revisional Difference

Beatmania 3rdMIX duplicate note.png

In the first release of the game, the song "tribe groove" contains two overlapping 1 notes in the 29th measure. This error was fixed in the second version. It is impossible to determine where exactly the double notes are, but it is presumed that they are on the two highlighted notes. A similar, unfixed glitch exists in measure 22 of believe again (HYPER MEGA MIX)'s double play chart.
