beatmania IIDX 8th style Location Test Songlist

beatmania IIDX 8th style Location Test

Today in Japan beatmania IIDX 8th style started its first location test. And what do we have for you? Nothing more than the songlist so far.

Even though we don’t have many details as of yet, one major point about beatmania IIDX 8th style that stands out is the first appearance of some iconic 5-key beatmania artists.

The 3 artists in question are PINK PONG, ASLETICS, and RAM each with genres matching what you might expect from them based on their previous works.

First thoughts based on what we have so far is that the genre diversity is in line with what we’ve seen from the franchise to date.

New tracks from fan-favorite contributors good-cool, Shoichiro Hirata, and Mr. T are at the top of my personal lists of tracks I want to play as soon as beatmania IIDX 8th style is available. It’s also especially nice to see DDR mainstay NAOKI popping up again!

A new trance track from dj TAKA being rated a 7+ is also giving me flashbacks of both Colors and Tomorrow Perfume, could this be an ongoing trend for the franchise?

The location test for beatmania IIDX 8th style is just getting started, so check back for more details when we have them!
