So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
Notes: Currently under process of datamining; info to be added as it is found.

The E3 2004 demo of (the American release of) Dance Dance Revolution Extreme, which lets you play a two song credit with a selection of ten songs to choose from.

General Differences

  • The Select Music backdrop has a simpler gradient.
  • The selection panel is likewise less detailed, lacking stripes on the sides and a less rectangular title window.
  • "PRESS START BUTTON" instead of the more specific "2P Press START Button to begin!"
  • "HIGHS OFF U" is listed as "Highs Off U", and "Your Rain (RAGE MIX)" is "Your Rain (Rage Mix)".

Unused Graphics

Originally, the U.S release of DDR EXTREME was going to retain the theme of the Japanese arcade and c/s versions of EXTREME. By the time the E3 demo came out, the theme had been changed to the one used in the final release, but the graphics still remained in the game.

Graphics found, and ripped, by Zenius-I-vanisher user BemaniHyper.
