Game Introduction

The beat is back! Konami returns with Beatmania IIDX 6th 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!

  • Light 7: an easier version of 7 Key.
  • 7 Key: the standard mode.
  • Hard: a more difficult mode.
  • Internet Ranking: compete against other players in a battle for the highest score, with a variety of 'courses' a preset selection of songs to choose from.

Next, select the song and then the game options:

  • Speed Select HS1-3: determines how fast the notes come down sometimes faster is better because the notes are farther apart.
  • Hidden/Sudden: hides/reveals the notes 1/3 of the way down, respectively.
  • Battle: players share the same notes.
  • Double Play: one player using both sides of the control panel two turntables and 14 keys!

  • Get all Greats on a four star song.
  • Full-combo no 'Poor's on a five star song.

Cabinet Information

The title appears on the marquee as 'beatmania IIDX 6th Style.' Additionally, a large subwoofer under the players' feet sends the game's music vibrating throughout your whole body!


The monitor is a BL-LCD TV manufactured by Toshiba. Occasionally, the screen will appear INCREDIBLY dim, as in not visible, and in these instances a new lamp is required for the backlight. Newer versions supposedly have resolved this issue, perhaps by using a different TV.


Another bemani series game.
