Hand Gestures and New Gimmicks
Although loaded all the familiar mat mashing DDR fun, in utilizing the motion sensing capabilities of the Wii Remote, DanceDanceRevolution Hottest Party 2 also brings new moves to the floor in the form of Hand Gestures and Gimmicks. Hand gestures require players to keep time to the rhythm of songs, beyond the step pattern they dance to, by shaking the Wii Remote or Nunchuck. In effect this adds a third dimension to the traditional front to back/side to side gameplay, resulting in an even more full-body experience. In addition, if players so choose they can also up their difficulty level through Gimmicks. Through these players can briefly alter the game's UI–for example delaying the appearance of on-screen arrows–forcing them to rely on their rhythm instead of screen prompts and in the process pick up major bonuses.

  • All-new soundtrack includes smash-hits from the last 4 decades as well as Konami originals, boss battle songs and videos.

The New Hottest Training Mode
Finally, DanceDanceRevolution Hottest Party 2 also includes a new lesson track system. Unlike the tutorial tracks in previous releases that relied heavily on text explanations, here players new to DDR gameplay will enjoy both video and audio encouragement and direction from their own on-screen instructor. As “left,right”…”front, back” etc. are called out all dance floor newbies have to do to place their feet accordingly on the mat and there you have it. You've joined the DanceDance revolution.
