beatmania IIDX 27 HEROIC VERSE Initial Crossfade Leaves Us Pumped for Version Release

We’re less than a week away from the nationwide release of beatmania IIDX 27 HEROIC VERSE, and there’s a lot of reasons to be excited. For the bemani heads, any new update to the long-running IIDX series is generally enough to leave mouths watering, but for those unacquainted with the 7-key rhythm gaming experience, I’m sure Konami is just as invested in your excitement as well. That’s where their latest YouTube upload comes into play, part one of their previews for the new music that will be gracing HEROIC VERSE. From the hard-hitting styles of DJ Shimamura to the bouncy grooves of DÉ DÉ MOUSE, there’s bound to be something that piques your interest. Check out the first crossfade video below:

As someone who would consider themselves a casual beatmania IIDX player at best, the one draw that the series holds over me is that of all the Bemani titles, it’s possibly got the wildest music. Never a series to disappoint, HEROIC VERSE continues the tradition of delivering exceptional music on all fronts, with “Ska-sh All Neurons!!” by Camellia and “Silly Love” by DÉ DÉ MOUSE already commanding my initial credits. Set to release nationwide on October 16, the first crossfade alone has me completely stoked. If the second crossfade offers as much variation and quality as this lineup, we have a lot to look forward to. For those interested, the full initial tracklist for the first crossfade can be found below:
