Konami Ships DDR Extreme
September 22, 2004

REDWOOD CITY, CALIF. - September 21, 2004 - Konami Digital Entertainment - America, a division of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., today announced that Dance Dance Revolution EXTREME(tm) (DDR EXTREME) for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system has shipped to retail stores nationwide. The game marks the first Konami video game in the U.S. to support the EyeToy(tm) USB camera (for PlayStation 2). Players will now be able to use both the dance mat and EyeToy as well as an impressive line up of new music and original hit dance modes to partake in the most interactive video game experience on the market. Aside from the EyeToy camera support, DDR EXTREME also boasts never-before-seen features, modes and minigames that make this addition to the hit music series the most comprehensive DDR game in the franchise.

"The Dance Dance Revolution series has always been known for its unique physically-interactive gameplay combined with energetic and pulsating music," said Jason Enos, product manager at Konami Digital Entertainment - America. "Now with the incorporation of Sony's EyeToy USB camera along with new game modes, DDR delivers even more physically-engaging gameplay while offering broader forms of fun and entertainment to everyone."

By accessing the new "Party" mode, which contains entertaining minigames, players of all ages will experience a new element of fun and physical interactivity. Games such as Hyper Dash, which simulates an interactive foot race, and Feeding Time, which challenges players to feed the appropriate food to as many animals as possible within an allotted time -- requires only a dance mat and fast moving feet. Conversely, Coconut Panic and Hands & Feet, two of the many minigames which utilize both the dance mat and the EyeToy camera, will have players using their hands and feet concurrently while dancing or interacting with the images onscreen.

DDR EXTREME also includes two modes that will test even the most seasoned players. The 'Mission' mode will have players performing a series of tasks on their quest to become the most "extreme" dancer. The 'Endless' mode allows players to play all the songs as one long continuous nonstop mix, while the 'Lesson' and 'Edit' modes lets players learn and customize their dance moves. Rounding out this complete DDR package and ensuring players are getting off the couch and onto the dance floor is the popular 'Work Out' mode, allowing players to track the calories they burn as they dance off the pounds.

DDR EXTREME contains a diverse roster of over 65 songs totaling more than 100+ minutes of hit music from internationally known artists such as BT, Pet Shop Boys, Duran Duran and Village People. In addition, remixes of popular songs such as "Ladies' Night," "Like A Virgin" and "Waiting For Tonight" as well as music videos such as Kim Wilde's "Kids in America" and Junior Senior's "Move Your Feet" are also included.

DDR EXTREME is rated "E" for Everyone by the ESRB and is available for an SRP of $39.99 for the standalone video game and $59.99 for the dance mat and video game bundle. For more information on the game, please visit:
