Jubeat Ripples

Had been playing the arcade machine called Jubeat Since I’m coming over to Japan. I’t somewhat like music game but different from O2jam and Djmax or Audition, It use the Touch Panel of 4 X 4 to play the game. When the note appeared on the screen of the touch panel, you just touch the panel and you get score.

And then 3 days ago, when I’m heading over for some games again at Akihabara, I found this:

 

Jubeat has been Renewed!! More new songs to play now.

 

And THANKS to the renewal, now it cost you 200 Yen to play each round…. (CRY). Damn Japan. Didn’t even think twice when it comes to earning our money….

Played few round and found out lots of improvements. The battle screen is more beautifull now, and you can earn more Notes and Display name now. Beside, I noticed a new song which is Chinese’s New Years Song! It’s in Cantonese language and full of Lyrics like “恭喜你” LOL.

Below is some play video of the previous Jubeat Version:

Jubeat Arcade Machine

Last sunday I went to Akihabara for some gaming experience since it has been quite a long time from my last visit there. For myself, I personally liked this Arcade machine called Jubeat by Konami. The machine got produced at 2008 and was a real hit in Japan at the time.

It’s a new Music Game by Konami which produced lots of popular games like Dance Dance Revolution , Drum Mania, Guitar Mania, and Para Para Paradise. I didn’t take much photos since it’s dark inside the gaming center. Instead, I took this video to show you all how the game work.

The first guy is not really good at this machine. I can play better than him. But the second guy on the video (at around 3:24) is really good on it. Wish I can be like him someday.

I also bought the e-AMUSEMENT PASS by Konami which will let you save your gaming’s progress into the card and show you your online ranking overall in Japan.
