It's been a big couple of weeks for Dance Dance Revolution. Not only did the game recently celebrate its 20th birthday, but it seems the game is due to be further immortalised with a... film? I'm not sure how I feel about this.
At long last, I now have an excuse to write about one of my absolute favourite games: the wonderful and ridiculous Dance Dance Revolution. Two days ago, the game turned 20 - marking two decades since its original release in Japan on the 26th September 1998. It's almost as old as me. Almost.
Konami has announced a new Classroom Edition of perennial party game favourite Dance Dance Revolution that will be compatible with a whopping 48 dance mats.
As reported by Joystiq, the project will be formally unveiled on 24th February at the California Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation & Dance Conference as part of a wider initiative to tackle childhood obesity.
Up to 48 dance mats can connect to a single PC running the game "for full class or after-school recreation participation".
