Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) A is the 15th instalment of the popular DDR arcade series. The game, the sequel to the 2014 edition in the series, was revealed by Konami in February 2016 and released in North America in July the same year. This game requires an online connection to a Japanese server (subscription only). The game was the first ever North American DDR release to support Konami’s online system, e-Amusement. The system is used primarily to save progress and unlockable content between games and allows players to participate in internet high score lists. DDR A features a number of changes to previous games in the series. The most significant change is towards the song selection screen. While the previous game, DDR 2014, still uses an interface that resembles the Cover Flow system introduced in DDR X2, DDR A changes it into a Sound Voltex-like pagelist giving the illusion of a touchable interface, although selection is still made using buttons below the monitor. Nine song choices, organised in three rows, are in clear view of the player at any time; scrolling past them will reveal additional row of songs. For the first time, selection can be done using the up and down buttons to skip a row of songs (in previous games, these buttons are exclusively used for e-Amusement services and certain modifiers). While highlighting a song is needed to display their detailed information, all of the visible song choices always display their song title and the current difficulty level selected, reducing the time needed to browse through them. The Groove Radar, previously fixed for each chart, now behaves accordingly whether the player sets options that eliminate arrows (e.g. activating "Freeze: Off" causes the Freeze portion of the radar to disappear) or not. Meanwhile, the scoring system is made more lenient, unlike the previous DDR games. The "GOOD" judgment does not stop the combos, only the "ALMOST" and "MISS" judgments. The grading system also includes "+" and "-" levels for all grades except for AAA and E (though D does not have a "-" level). There are also aesthetic changes. If the player's dance meter is depleted down to the red level, a "danger overlay" will be added behind the player's arrow zone and the speakers will turn red. The in-game characters now have the dance routines of the Supernova era (which in turn are based on those from the Ultramix series), though premade routines are retained. Some options have also been removed or changed to fit better with the gameplay. Playing the game is simple. The arrows move up and down the screen in time to the music. When the arrows reach the “Step Zone” at the top of the screen, stand on the corresponding foot panel. Players performances are determined by the timing which they press the foot panel. If it is pressed in the perfect time then they get a "MARVELOUS" or "PERFECT" grade. If their timing is not so good then this grade can drop to "MISS". If a player continues to get "MISS" for their grade their "Dance Gauge" goes down. When the Dance Gauge becomes empty, you get "FAILED". If the gauge is not empty when a song ends, you get "CLEAR". <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/9bQgdc_Cjek" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> <b>The game can be played as a single, double or versus:</b> <b>Single</b> One-person play style.

About Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) A Arcade Machine

Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) A is the 15th instalment of the popular DDR arcade series.

The game, the sequel to the 2014 edition in the series, was revealed by Konami in February 2016 and released in North America in July the same year.

This game requires an online connection to a Japanese server (subscription only).

The game was the first ever North American DDR release to support Konami’s online system, e-Amusement.
