Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., announced today that DanceDanceRevolution Hottest Party 2 for the Nintendo Wii has shipped to retail outlets nationwide. The sequel to last year's top seller — that marked the first time that players were able to dance with both their hands and feet — DanceDanceRevolution Hottest Party 2 is being released as part of the franchise's 10th anniversary celebration. Featuring exciting new gameplay that combines the physically engaging, innovative and easy-to-pick-up-and-play mechanics of the Wii platform, the game offers four-player multiplayer, Wii Remote and Nunchuck support, smash hits from the last four decades, and entirely new modes.
DanceDanceRevolution Hottest Party 2 is sure to be the life of the party as the all-new soundtrack features big hits such as "I Want Candy", "Umbrella", "Black or White" and "We Got The Beat," ensuring that the game will appeal to dance enthusiasts of all ages. The mutliplayer function allows for head-to-head battles in the Dance 'n' Defend Battle Mode where players use the Wii Remote to battle their opponents. Other new modes include the non-stop dance action in Course Mode, the ability to unlock hidden features in Groove Arena Mode and the all-new Hottest Training Mode. With brand new features such as the incorporation of your Mii, enhanced motion capture, new characters exclusive to the game, and new stages with enhanced effects on more than 50 unique dance environments, there is no party like Hottest Party 2.
After a decade as one of the most popular franchises in the music genre, DanceDanceRevolution has transcended from a video game into a pop culture phenomenon. The game has been available on most consoles including all three PlayStation's, Xbox, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii. Revolutionizing the get-up-and move concept for video games, DanceDanceRevolution combines high-energy music with fun-filled gameplay. The game has swept into the pop culture psyche as it has had its own television program on CBS, is regularly featured on primetime television and music videos, has its own fan club and fan sites, is part of the physical education program in many school districts, and has been featured workout in fitness clubs across the United States.
As part of the 10th anniversary celebration, Konami will also allow fans to move their feet to different beats on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system with the release of DanceDanceRevolution UNIVERSE3 and DanceDanceRevolution X, respectively.
