GQ858 beatmania complete MIX ver1.00[EOF]
beatmania completeMIX was released in the USA as hiphopmania completeMIX, and in South Korea as beatstage completeMIX, both containing several differences when compared to the original Japanese release.
- Prior to displaying its title screen, the original Japanese release showcased a text reel of the release dates of each of the three beatmania games released at the time, along with the text "beat mania 1st Anniversary Version for all beatmania players". The American release shortens this intro, now making it slightly based on the intro for beatmania 3rdMIX, with the text "hiphop mania ultimate version is Complete MIX" being displayed. It is very likely the Korean release did the same, although this cannot be confirmed now.
- The American release adds a glass scratch effect to the game's title screen. It is unknown if this was also done in the Korean release.
- The title screen BGM, Theme of beatmania, is missing from the American release, being replaced with the menu screens' BGM. It is unknown if this was also done in the Korean release.
- All of the songs from the original beatmania (with the exception of jam jam reggae, e-motion and both variants of 20,november), SKA a go go, La Bossanova de Fabienne and Stop Violence! are absent from the American release.
- The songs tokai, Believe again, Believe again (HYPER MEGA MIX), find out and LUV TO ME THIRD-MIX are missing from the Korean release.
