This is a very simple request, I love DDR, I love Cirno, I love Kemono friends.

Can we PLEASE get the original "Cirnos perfect math class" and not the horrible EDM remix [Even tho I enjoy EDM] and can we PLEASE get Japari Park in american DDR A machines. I recently found out that these are not in DDR machines in the USA and only in asian regions. I am so sad knowing that this probably wont ever get into our machines but Id at least like to know how or why this is the way it is.

Sorry for the dumb post but it just makes me sad.

No new licensed songs have been added to DDR A in the US since its release here (Determination was revived not too long after the release though).

Asian regions use what is called the eAmusement Participation system, which is a profit sharing system (the arcade owner pays Konami based on how much use the machine gets). This is why the machines using this system require a network connection to boot. And I suspect is makes licensing new stuff a LOT easier. I haven't done a lot of research, but I believe that prior to the switchover (which happened sometime in 2013 I think?), licensed songs hadn't been added to the games after their release.

As far as I know, the US and EU versions of DDR A don't use this. The arcade owner buys the game for a larger price, but apart from a basic network fee (which would be optional), the owner doesn't pay any more.

I was also bummed to find out Japan got the original Cirno's PMC while we'll likely never get it : [
First encountered that song a super long time ago (on a fan-made DJ Max newgrounds game) and thoroughly enjoyed it.
