New Bemani game. Been waiting for actual pictures or footage to post about it, or at least how to play, but for months there's been none of that.

Good news: There's finally a vid.

Bad news: It's basically Whack-A-Mole.

So it's basically reflexive skill X memory for these things.  I'd like to see things that require you to use your forearms to hit rows pop'n style.

Well, the boss song features a 16-panel chord, so I guess you can get creative there.

Welcome to the closest thing to an arcade version of Ouendan/EBA that we'll probably ever see.

Get serious.

But at least in Ouendan you can see the locations of the next several hits.

So what's next, GF where the buttons light up so you have to be quick on your fingers?  Maybe a game of memory-ddr?

Memorization shouldn't be a part of a music game.  Sure it has its place but that's why notes fall or scroll or appear within visibility limits.  jubeat seems to just throw stuff at you randomly, =/

Like I said, Whack-A-Mole.

And Tontie did that so much better anyway.

yubi-beat = finger-beat

Combine two of the same sound and you're in business.

Decent quality vid of some higher-level songs. Uh, is this supposed to be playable without memorization?

I can't even think of anything to say to that. (And that isn't a good thing)  :(


Really, what is that supposed to be?!  X(

Boss tune.

Pattern is kind of neat, but it's clear the interface has serious flaws; when things get heavy it's really not readable anymore.

Coming to America. Good thing they changed the name (this time) or that could be disastrous.
