Dance Dance Revolution: Disney Mix (PlayStation)
|Dance Dance Revolution: Disney Mix|
Also known as: Dance Dance Revolution: Disney's Rave (JP), Dancing Stage: Disney Mix (EU)
Quite possibly the only Disney Dance Dance Revolution game one can take seriously. In Japan, it was released for arcades the same day.
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.
Starting from offset 0x824 (JP/US)/0x82C (EU) in the ELF are identifier strings, which include a build date:
DISNEY GROOVE PROJECT P06270013 2000.06.07 VERSION
DISNEY US VERSION PROJECT P06270013 2000.10.16 VERSION
DISNEY EURO VERSION PROJECT P06270013 2000.10.24 VERSION
- The unlock method for the Maniac difficulty was simplified in the overseas releases, only requiring to clear all songs on the Trick difficulty rather than a series of inputs using two controllers.
- The DJ Selection mode was removed in the overseas releases, though its selection graphics are still loaded in the main menu's VRAM.
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.
Main Menu Logo
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.
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, though the video is still present in the data.
The American release removed eleven of the licensed songs present in the Japanese version, replacing them with several Konami originals. Below is a list of exclusive songs for each region.

Several score grades were renamed in the American and European releases.
