Dance Dance Revolution's third foray into the American and European markets. The American release gets this title because all of the songs in it were composed by Konami employees. The European release replaced some of these with licensed music, though.

Unused Graphics

Internet Ranking Mode

An unused graphic for an "Internet Ranking" Mode, a leftover from the console release of Dance Dance Revolution 4th Mix.

An unused CD found in the VRAM data of the song selection screen. It most likely belongs to Addicted to Bass, a scrapped song that has a reference in the game's files.

Message Box

The message box seen when the game initially loads saved data was completely redrawn in the European release.

Title Screen/Main Menu

The title screen has quite the most obvious change: it was completely redesigned between the American and European releases. The menu screen also has some differences, such as the warning below the mode selections being in a different font, and the sparkly circles on the side of the selected choice being in a different color.

Songlist

As stated in the introduction, several songs (which, apart from DIVE, were all the returning beatmania songs from DDR 2nd ReMIX APPEND CLUB VERSiON Vol.2) were replaced with licensed cover songs in the European release. Unusually, Salamander Beat Crush Mix is the only song that didn't get this treatment, but it is heavily implied that the aforementioned scrapped song Addicted to Bass was going to be what it was replaced with.
