Dance Dance Revolution 5 is moving to PC in the near future. DDR’s official Twitter account announced the news, as well as a link to a website with more information. A free open alpha beta version is now available for PC gamers in Japan or anyone with a Konami ID.
In Japan, Dance Dance Revolution has never lost its breath. Players continued to enjoy the game in arcades, while the series may have lost popularity elsewhere.
Dance Dance Revolution is a music game where players use their bodies. Players follow the directional arrows with their feet to match the music. The better the synchronization of the arrows, the higher the score. The games have different difficulty modes for beginners or more experienced players.
