Konami has revealed its upcoming online browser version of Dance Dance Revolution is now playable. Though it’s still its alpha form, the game is actually running pretty smoothly, and it’s definitely worth checking out!
As spotted by Kotaku, Dance Dance Revolution V won’t use a dance mat or any such peripheral. Instead, you hit the right steps using your keyboard’s arrow keys. It’s less fun than the original, but it’s still pretty addictive!
Konami tweeted the following (translated): “DanceDanceRevolution, a very popular arcade game, is now available on PC! ! The name is ‘DanceDanceRevolution V’ With 15 popular songs in the arcade, we are delivering it for free for a limited time only! We would appreciate if you could join us in the play.”
According to the official FAQ, there are some limitations for the PC browser game.
The website reads (translated): “DanceDanceRevolution V Open Alpha Test is a limited-time service with only the minimum features of DDR.
“Only a limited number of songs can be played. The service end period is undecided. We may change the version irregularly based on your comments.”

Speaking of Konami, the future of the Silent Hill franchise is still being speculated on. Rumours have suggested the company is working on a reboot of the franchise, though this is something Konami is denying.
Back in March, the company addressed the rumours with Rely On Horror. A spokesperson told the publication: “We’re aware of all the rumors and reports but can confirm that they are not true. I know it’s not the answer your fans may want to hear.”
Well, it may not be Silent Hill, but at least we have Dance Dance Revolution!
