The Tradeoff

One of the songs promoted in the 1.70 teaser is now unable to be released. It was confirmed under the assumption that DanceDanceRevolution Dance Wars' simfiles would be available in the near future. As they are not, we are unable to have 4 of the 5 difficulties and we have copious sync issues with the song. Be assured that we have tried to find a solution, but none rises to the quality standards we have for the game.

(By the way, I'm still not revealing what it was directly. Sound off in the comments to guess, and know that you only have 18 songs to pick from, essentially!)

However, as the title suggests, good is coming in place of the bad. There was a bonus 9th song to be released to finish off the 1.70. Due to this issue, we've decided to release it early!

Ultimate Sweetie Belle has been a popular request since its release, and it has finally come to the game to cap off the Sweetie Belle (former) trio! While it isn't very difficult, what difficulty it has is mainly concentrated on the Sweetie Belle samples, and it makes for an interesting chart.

Let us know what you think of this turn of events in the comments!

1.70 Teaser #3

Congratulations to Jukebeat on its 50th pack! As a celebration, we here at the TrotMania team are bringing you 3 tracks from the original series, jubeat. Here are the details:

-Track #1 is Green Green Dance and is available now! Originating in jubeat knit and making it to jukebeat in KONAMI Music Pack 14, this frolicking tune is fast-paced and features a variety of solos along with minstrel-like melodies.

-Track#2 is Baby Bleep March and is available now! This hyper track fits so perfectly with the chaos the Cake twins wreak on Pinkie Pie initially, and the steps are a definite challenge! If you've been following recent developments with jukebeat and jubeat plus content, you'd know that what was (in Japan) saucer pack 02 corresponds to KONAMI Music Pack 26 in the US. However since saucer pack 01's song DIAVOLO got pushed to pack 26, one of the corresponding tracks (this one) got pushed out. Let's hope it's in 27!

-Track #3 is Flip Flap and is available now! Originating in Reflec Beat limelight, the track was crossed over to jubeat saucer at the beginning of May, so it is quite fresh to the series. While it doesn't have the raw speed that its relatives smooooch and Wuv U have, it still has plenty of difficulty due to its triplet timing.
