Dance Dance Revolution USA is the series' second foray into the American arcade market. It is mainly based on the European Dancing Stage EuroMIX release, albeit without courses.

Unused Songs

Two unused song slots can be found in the game's data, despite being referenced within the GAME.DAT filesystem. They both take in consideration the folder data\mdb.


Folder: kung

The first unused song is KUNG FU FIGHTING, which originates from the very first Dance Dance Revolution arcade game, and that had previously appeared in Dancing Stage EuroMIX. Its data is the same as that game.

Folder: tubt

The second unused song is TUBTHUMPING, which originates from Dance Dance Revolution 2ndMIX LINK VERSION, and which also had previously appeared in Dancing Stage EuroMIX. Its data is also the same as that game.

Unused Graphics

Placeholder Graphics

Notably placeholder graphics. The text reads "Under construction". The banner and larger CD can be found in the folder data\mdb\rand, while the smaller CD is found within the used ones, located in the folder data\tim\allcd.

Unused Background Animation Textures

Among the game's background animation texture folders, found at data\back, the folder jack is never used. It contains textures associated with songs by Captain Jack, though this game doesn't have any.

Unused Labels

Several text labels in data\area\area_ua\gmslc_25.cmt go completely unseen. These are mainly leftovers from Dance Dance Revolution 3rdMIX, though the "K.I.C." label is from Dancing Stage EuroMIX.


Other Dancing Stage EuroMIX Leftovers


Within data\area\area_ua\mdobj_25.cmt, which contains the graphics seen in the difficulty selection screen, are two unused speaker designs. In Dancing Stage EuroMIX, the first design was used to label the Beginner and Difficult difficulties, while the second one was used to label the Expert difficulty. In this game, however, only one design is used.


Nonstop Courses

The following graphics are associated with nonstop courses, which don't appear in this game:

Konami Internet Challenge

The following graphics are associated with the Konami Internet Challenge mode, a feature only present in Dancing Stage EuroMIX:



Other Language Graphics

The French, German, Italian and Spanish graphics from Dancing Stage EuroMIX can still be found in the folders fren, germ, ital and span, inside data\lang.

Other 3rdMIX Leftovers

Dancemania CD Titles

data\back\game\album_25.cmt contains the Dancemania CD title graphics, as well as a memory card icon, which were seen in the song selection screen in Dance Dance Revolution 3rdMIX.


Game Mode Labels

data\area\area_ua\mdobj_25.cmt also contains labels for the Medium, Tough and Nonstop game modes featured in Dance Dance Revolution 3rdMIX.


Song Select

Due to the difficulty selection now being displayed after the song selection, the top half of muob_25.cmt is almost completely unused.


Memory Card Functions

The folders in data\lang, which contains graphics meant for the game's different language settings, also contain graphics that relate to the memory card settings the original Dance Dance Revolution 3rdMIX had.
