Beatmania IIDX tasks the player with performing songs through a controller consisting of seven key buttons and a scratchable turntable. Hitting the notes with strong timing increases the score and groove gauge bar, allowing the player to finish the stage. Failing to do so depletes the gauge until it is empty, abruptly ending the song.

There are some changes made for this series. The song wheel is now circular rather than vertical, similar to the one in Dance Dance Revolution. 2 new modes are presented; Premium Free Mode, a mode where the player plays for 8 minutes as opposed to 2 stages, and DJ Order Mode, a mode which is similar to Pop'n Music's Challenge Mode, where a player can select missions (similar to pop'n's Normas) and earn DELLAR POINTS. Other than that, all of the gameplay remains the same.



Released on September 15, 2010 in Japan.

The first location test ran from April 22 to April 26 at the Cat's Eye Machida in Machida, Tokyo. Follow-up location tests ran in Choufu, Tokyo and Kyoto from April 30 to May 6, in Nagoya and Sapporo from May 14 to May 20 and in Chiyoda, Tokyo from June 11 to June 12.
