A direct port of the arcade version, unlike the radically-different "port" released in the West a year after this one. It also boasts of having one of the largest set of songs in any DDR console ports; a whopping 111 of them, to be precise, and even more so if you utilize System Data Support to unlock the songs from both 6thMix and 7thMix.

The question is, of course, "Why do you need KONAMI ORIGINAL songs?"

Unused Step Charts

Some songs have incomplete Oni charts that can be accessed if the song's songwheel data definition is modified to include an Oni difficulty/foot rating. Songs that include such charts include LOVE❤SHINE and Last Message.
