The Black Sheep of the DDR Family Receives a Re-Release


Dance Dance Revolution Disney Mix, known as the black sheep of the DDR family due to it’s scarce, lackluster song list, and ahem, overly cutesy Disney characters, has, like numerous other previously difficult to find games before it, been reprinted. It intially received an extremely limited print way back in Fall 2001 with absolutely no advertising and, to make matters worse, during the time period when PSX was on it’s way out. Despite its abysmal quality Disney Mix has been selling for an obscene amount of money on auction sites such as eBay and Amazon, often exceeding the $100 mark.

However, you might want to chalk this up as more of a port than a reprint, as it’s not being reprinted for the original console it appeared on. Instead of reprinting this old game on an ancient system, Konami has decided to re-release Dance Dance Revolution Disney Mix as a TV game where you plug it in and play it through your television. Shamefully, though, this already hideous entry in the DDR series has gone from bad to worse as this version is supposedly missing many of the features found in the original version, such as a chunk of the original play list.

Even though this may be a decent release for younger Dance Dance Revolution fans, long-experienced DDR junkies most likely wont want anything to do with it and collector’s will probably keep bidding on copies of the original PSX version. However, it will still be interesting to see if the PSX version maintains its value even with this plug and play edition released.
