Back in October of last year, Konami brought its piano simulation title Nostalgia Op.3 to its Konami Amusement Game Station (Konasta) platform in an open alpha test state, which honestly, ran more like a final build beta than something much earlier than that. It had full MIDI support for keyboards and worked like a charm. Today, Konami made the announcement that Nostalgia Op.3 is now out of beta and a fully supported title on their Konasta platform. Let’s take a quick look and see exactly what the game will be bringing.
For starters, Konami has stated the following about the Konasta version of Nostalgia Op.3:
The Konasta version of Nostalgia contains not only original songs but also many famous songs such as the familiar BEMANI songs and classical songs that everyone knows, so that a wide range of players can enjoy them. We plan to continue distributing music in the future. In addition to the keyboard, a MIDI keyboard can also be used to play the game. If you subscribe to the basic course for ¥1,628 / month, you can play many songs, and you can choose from normal music to real music with high difficulty.
For the modest fee of ¥1,628 a month, you have access to over 150 songs that you can play to your heart’s content. This actually isn’t too bad of a price, especially if you have been yearning to play the game.
Nostalgia Op.3 is available to download now on Windows PCs. Don’t fret if you don’t have a MIDI keyboard to play the title because it has full support for the standard PC keyboard that you definitely have in front of your monitor. With Konami bringing most of their BEMANI titles to PC, it will be exciting to see what comes next.
