Regional Differences

beatmania IIDX 2nd style was released in Korea under the title of beatstage II 2nd style, not only sporting differences in the hardware but also in the cabinet, which had much less specifications compared to the Japanese one. In fact, the cabinets exported to Korea were of a cancelled "regular" version of beatmania IIDX, known as beatmania II.

Title Screen

  • The game's tagline, displayed above the title graphic, now resembles the one of beatmania II: "The next generation beatstage standard version".

  • The song dong-tepo no.1 was renamed to rocket factory. Curiously, the song's overlays were left unchanged.
