Pump It Up The PREX 3: The International 4th Dance Floor
Not emulated in MAME
[ARCADE] Arcade Video Game PCB
Pump It Up The PREX 3: The International 4th Dance Floor © 2003 Andamiro.
This version of the Pump It Up (PIU) series breaks the PREX tradition (it's not a collection) and features 3 new songs and does not feature very many Extra songs. It uses the same interface (including same graphics) from The Premiere 3. In total, there are 77 songs.
Apart from the new songs, this version also featured the return of Banya's 'Hypnosis' and 'Ignition Starts', songs from the first version which never appeared in international releases, a few new step routines for old songs and the Nightmare mode, bringing the challenge in the game to a new degree.

MK3 Arcade System
Released in October 2003.
There were also some major international licenses that were made for this mix and intended to be released with the game, but since Andamiro didn't get the licensing for them they were taken off the Stage.cfg file, which the machine uses to show songs on the song select screen. One could 'unlock' these hidden songs by altering the Stage.cfg file.
There was also a special release of PREX3 for arcade that did not include the rap songs with profanity in them, which brought the song list down to 72 on this version.
