Subject:SuperNova details
Time:10:17 pm
In response to the post earlier about DDR/DS Supernova, I have a few more details courtesy of UKStep members Dancefreak and Tsugaru03 who were the first two people in the WORLD to play the new mix:

 ATEI SuperNova Update! 

ATEI SuperNova Update!

ATEI SuperNova Update!
Me and Dancefreak were the FIRST two people on the WORLD to play on the SuperNova!!!

We got there at 9am, before it had even officially opened, so we had a WHOLE hour to play on it!

First things first it has a KILLER theme, its bright red with lots of
wireframe, has EVERY 10 footer except max period, PLUS all the
originals from DS Max/Extreme 2, and a large handful of new songs, the
first thing you notice is the new select mode screen, you have single
versus and double plus an unknown 4th option where the symbol is two
arrows facing each other, im assuming its unison or battle but dont
quote me on that, I'll find out later.

Anonther thing you notice is that after you select a style you can choose :

All songs





Pressing down on difficult reveals nonstop and challenge mode!!!!!

none of these modes are selectable except all songs.

Song select screen:

Think DS Max but red and wired, the first song is long train running
but its the Xtreme version, not the bus stop version. Ive noticed a
shortage of licenses so far but ive been told they are still working on
them, and all the licenses are in fact dancemania, they have toxic by
helen and what a wonderful world by beatbox and someone else.

Options screen:

All the usual mods BUT on the select skin for your arrows its default
is vivid, right on that you get flat, right on that you get rainbow
which is basically solo, right on that you get NOTE! you can also turn
all jumps off or just have them as single steps and little has now been
renamed to CUT.

Gameplay screen:

You have like a 3-D wireframe dancefloor with a random cyber dancing
character, like baby-lon with a headset on, all the older songs have
the original videos so far, like your rain and tommorow.


Again not much to say here, no marvelous as of yet and the perfect
window is huge, I AAA'ed one of the new songs, (Red zone) on basic 6
(First AAA in the world XD) but I noticed its stil 5th mix grading

The good stuff:

LOTS Of new ko's, there is a 10 which barely qulaifies as a 10 more
like an 8 because me and ricky (Tsugaru03/Stardragon04) FC'ed it
barless first try.

The songlist spans OVER 300 SONGS approx! Thats got to make you all
happy, no sorting yet though but I assume they will implement that

New songs that I can tell you about:

Long train running - Xtreme

A Love like this - Pandera

Toxic (Company edit) - Helen

What a wonderful world - (Beatbox ft DJ Miko)

Curus - D-Crew

Dragon blade - Kozo Nakamuro (I cant see the spelling very clear on the video)

Happy * Angel - Jun

Mugen - Terra (10 Foot but shouldnt be)

Nijiiro - Cant see the artist

Red zone - Tatsh and naoki

Xepher - Tatsh

konako no nanatsu no okwaini - Asaki

Moon - Dj Taka ft erika

No. 13 - Taka (Respect for JSB)

Centaur - Jimmy Wekcl

Ska Ska No.3 - Again I cant see the artist

Murmur Twins - See above

Fly away -Chiyotio

Innocence of silence - NC Ft nrg factory (We think this is the DS Max Backgroudn music for select a mode

Calico Cat rock (Mikeniko rocks official name )

Ki-Se-Ki - be 4 you

Doll - Terra

Isputureusti (DDR Version) - Akira yamaoka oh and if we spelt that wrong, we tried.

Unconfirmed :

We assume max period is on here but as an unlock because when we
recorded the first songlist some songs werent there than on our second

The extra stage :

Now we know the limit is 7 foot AA it might just be anything on expert
but 7 is the lowest I've tried. and getting extra stage gives you the
most BS Max song ever, rating in at about 2 minutes 5 seconds, worthy
of a 13 foot ITG style, the bpm keeps changing from 400-200-100 with
stops everywhere and over 600 steps!






Fascination MaXX!!! - 100-200-400

This song is stupidly hard, nobody has passed it yet, only me and ricky
have seen the ending because it was on fail end of song when we got in,
we can say that the final run is at 400 bpm with jumps thrown in at

A Quote from the leaflet that Konami has been handing out: "Supernova is sure to blow the competition away!!"

Oh, and there's also plans for a Dancing Stage Super Nova home version Very Happy

Also, a couple of videos of the new MaxX song:

Fantastic MaxX video #1
Fantastic MaxX video #2

I'd credit someone for them, but I don't know who shot them. I think it was someone from DDRUK

There is no competition for Supernova, it will cater to the lower tiers and ITG will still cater to the higher.

I think ITG has shown that a song doesn't have to be at 300 BPM with insanely stupid runs for the whole song and a title with "Max" in it to be stellar.

The scoring system is awful, based on an Ex Console/5th Mix scoring system, with a 7-foot AA to get you to Extra Stage. Like I said in another community, imagine how frustrated you'd be if you got 11 and a pad good and were denied ES/OMES and the person of the other side got 55 Greats and got the AA.

If they put Marvelous timing in, since there's an ever-so-slight indication on the left banner, we'll see if they adjust the fact that it's way too tight for super-consistent MAing, leaving a very small percentage of the game to luck.

That, and the Perfect window is reported to be as wide as its Dancing Stage predecessors. Not only will that make Extreme scores and Super Nova scores on two completely different levels, it'll destroy any sort of replay value for the top-tier players they were looking to lure back with Fascination Maxx and other songs.

That, and for the love of god, Murmur Twins is a 7.

Other than that, I like a lot of the IIDX crossover songs. Hopefully they do No. 13 justice and make it a stepchart it deserves.

*le sigh*

i HATE that scoring system!!! why didn't they stick with what 8th/extreme has! it pisses me off in the ps2 versions.. it will piss me off even more in the arcade. i dont mind 5th so much since its older, and its nice and shows the precentage so you can atleast tell if you got the AA.


but im still excited anyway.

the left banner looks like a course.

at least i think it does.

I hope it is.

I'm not really a fan of Marvelous timing in gameplay; it'll change a lot about the game and if they keep the same Marvelous window, we're going to have a problem with Pad Perfects (which, according to calculations, definitely exist with the Marvelous window being too tight).

Oh the links for the movie are broken too.

They worked fine for me at the time of posting, but it's possible they've been taken down since those two links have been posted ALL over the internet and DDRUK suffers from bandwidth costs enough as it is.

Hmmmm, here's hoping for it to really make it to the states and for a good home version to be made.

I hope Fascination Max sounds good...
