I'm not 100% sure if its legit or not. There is a Japanese version out for some time but for some reason Konami used a new account for releasing it in US. So not sure if it IS konami or someone else. Most probably it is legit but just in case it isnt, wait for confirmation before you shell out for the IAPs

If you didn't have Jubeat at least you won't be disappointed in the song selection.

Game Impressions

This the best rhythm game there is on the platform. They've supported the Japanese version with one-metric-ton of songs, over the last few months, so I look forward to the same treatment here. Best news of all is that it doesn't seem like they hobbled the difficulty. It will depend on the songs they release, of course, but I'm optimistic. I adore this game.

It is somewhat amusing to hear the songs that they think will be popular outside of Japan, because many of them...umm...won't be. Hopefully people will simply vote with their dollars to promote the music we do want. Personally, I'm thrilled to have twice as many songs en route, but I would like to have the tracks from the original, even though I'll have to repurchase them. Before everyone freaks out entirely, they did include DJ Yoshitaka's Evans, they just renamed it Flower.

Correction: Later in thread I learned the song is a sequel of sorts. I didn't A/B test them. I also purchased the two guitar band track packs and they seem easier than average, as compared to the original tracks, but YMMV. I do recommend the other to packs though.

How many songs do you get for $3.99? Seems a bit steep.

BTW, this version is 100% legit. Other than the songs on offer, it's identical to the original.

I take that back; they may have made improvements. Either that or my original version is missing an update. There is a brand new, themed background, as an optional alternative to the classic design.

You may want to remove the warnings in the OP, so people don't fuh-reak out. lol

4 songs per pack, a buck a piece, just like the Japanese version.
