Dance Dance Revolution 3rd Mix introduced the Step Step Revolution mode which is... literally just the Maniac difficulty from the previous game, exclusive to a separate game mode.

B.Crewe/B.Guedio
I love you baby
and if it's quite all right
I need you baby
to warm a lonely night
trust in me when I say
Oh, pretty baby
don't bring me down, I pray
now that I found you, stay
And let me love you, baby
let me love you
You're just too good to be true
Can't take my eyes off of you
You'd be like heaven to touch
Oh, I want to hold you so much
At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I'm alive
You're just too good to be ture
I can't take my eyes off of you

Below is a transcript of the charts, which are playable with Stepmania, with a recreation of the audio data as there is none on the disc. Note that there are no proper difficulty ratings in any of the charts.

There's a whole lotta words here, but not enough pictures. Please fix this.

Overall

  • In the Asian releases of the game, the Another difficulty was renamed to Trick.
  • The Konami Original/Dancemania labels are missing from the song selection screen in the Asian releases of the game.

Characters

  • The character Charmy was given tights in the Asian releases of the game. Notably, this modesty change actually stuck with her for her official design for the 4th MIX series, which gave her a matching metallic top.

  • The character Devil-Zukin was redubbed Black-Zukin in the Asian releases.

Songlist

The songlist was slightly altered between the four versions of the game.

  • The Asian releases lack the songs Stomp to my beat, LOVE, TUBTHUMPING, GET UP (BEFORE THE NIGHT IS OVER), GET UP AND DANCE, IF YOU CAN SAY GOODBYE, and XANADU.
  • The Ver.Korea release added the songs BA KKWO, BU DAM, BYUL, FACE, SUNG SUK, TELL ME TELL ME, and WA.
  • The Ver.Korea2 release kept the aforementioned songs, and added 9 more: AROMDAON 21C, GAGGAI, GAMYEONUI SIGAN, GIMME GIMME, GYOUNG GO, HOGISIM, ROSE, SHOCK, and Starian.

Courses

  • The CLASSICS course was slightly altered between the original Japanese and regular Asian versions of the game, with the songs UPSIDE DOWN being moved as the first in the course, IT ONLY TAKES A MINUTE (Extended Remix) also deslocated to being the second in the order, and I believe in miracles replacing GET UP (BEFORE THE NIGHT IS OVER).
    • The Ver.Korea release, however, replaced this course with two: KOREAN MUSICS 1 and KOREAN MUSICS 2, both featuring songs exclusive from this version of the game.
  • The Ver.Korea2 release replaced the SMiLE.dk and CAPTAIN courses with two more KOREAN MUSICS, which are now labeled from A to D.
    • The first two aforementioned KOREAN MUSICS courses were also slightly altered to fit the inclusion of the release's 9 new songs.

Graphics

  • In the original Japanese release, the song OPERATOR was erroneously labeled as OPERATOR (Two Gees Mix). This was fixed in the Asian releases, and later in 3rd Mix PLUS.

  • The CD and background graphics for the song OH NICK PLEASE NOT SO QUICK were censored in the Asian releases, giving the people more layers of clothing (in this case, jeans).
