Unused Graphics

Question Marks

Several question marks found within the VRAM data of the song selection screen. They are very likely leftovers from Dancing Stage featuring Dreams Come True.

Maniac Mode

Regional Differences

General

  • The Maniac difficulty was added in the American release, although it has to be unlocked and it is not possible to play it in Double Play mode.
  • The DJ Selection mode was removed in the American release, although graphical data of it still exists in the main menu's VRAM data.

Title Screen

The title screen's background is completely different between the Japanese and American/European releases, with the latter actually featuring Disney characters as opposed to a bland stage backdrop. Additionally, the copyright year was bumped up and had its font changed, and was placed lower in the European release to accomodate the slightly taller aspect ratio, said aspect ratio also making more of the art visible.

As the game's subtitle is different between the Japanese and American/European releases, the logo graphic in the main menu was altered as well. The Japanese graphic is in the same style as the title screen logo.

Japan US/Europe
DdrdisneyPS1-logoJP.png Yes, it actually has this weird transparency in-game.

How To Play

The Japanese release showed a video in the left side of the playfield during the How To Play sequence. It was replaced with a 2D animation in the American/European releases, although the video is still present in the data.

Song List

The American release removed eleven of the licensed songs present in the Japanese version, replacing them with several Konami original songs, most of them from Dance Dance Revolution 4th Mix, one being from the Solo series, and the other two came from the PS1 version of 4thMIX before becoming available in the arcades in DDRMAX.
