Game Introduction

The beat is back! Konami returns with Beatmania IIDX 5th Style 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! As usual with any bemani update, this version adds new music to play!

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!
