Dance Dance Revolution was released on May 24, 2002 for Microsoft Windows, having been released in 1998 and 1999 for PlayStation, GameCube and Xbox.[1] The game used the engine and interface from Dance Dance Revolution 4thMIX which had also been used by the previous PlayStation DDR game, Dance Dance Revolution: Konamix, which only included Konami original songs.

Downloadable Content[edit | edit source]

In the months after the release of Dance Dance Revolution on PC, Konami offered free downloads for the game on the product website. The free downloads consisted of additional dancing character that were displayed during gameplay. The characters ranged from general styles (Club DJs, trendy outfits) to odd and seasonal styles (Bondage gear, Christmas dresses, Halloween costumes, Robots). The download page displayed blank entries for up and coming downloads. The nature of the new dancers were revealed when the downloads were posted. Dancing characters were released as pairs (Usually a man and a woman when gender even applied), however the final blank entry was a lone dancing character instead of a pair. The final character was a bonus character named Jason, that replaced Guy, a previously-downloadable character.[2]
