Game Introduction

The beat is back! Konami returns with Beatmania IIDX which adds to the five key/turntable setup by adding an extra white and black key to the keyboard. Also of note is the bass-pounding subwoofer under the players feet. Now you can 'feel the music' ... literally! This time, of course, you get treated to new music!

Game Play

Start by selecting the desired options, then a song, and attempt to match the notes by pressing the keys and scratching the turntable in time to the music. Perform well enough, and you can continue to the next stage!

If you wish to play a freeware PC version of the game, go to http://members.tripod.com/~prjb/entr.htm which has a section for the simulator.

This version is also the first in the series to have a home conversion (for the Japanese Playstation 2)

Cabinet Information

The title appears on the marquee as "beatmania IIDX 3rd Style." Additionally, a large subwoofer under the players' feet sends the game's music vibrating throughout your whole body! Also, the second player's controls are opposite of those of the first player (i.e. the keys are on the left, the turntable on the right).
