BLACK SQUARE DLC behind stories
DJMAX RESPECT production team interview
- Well, I’ve requested SARA to draw images for the PV this time and from the past experience, I knew that SARA tends to be little late when it comes to finishing the work. So I’ve asked her to draw for the PV long time ago, so there wasn’t any problem.(Smile)
- I think it’s the part where El_Clear was leaving the footprint behind. I’ve asked SARA to make images for me cause I had to make a video out of many scenes since the song was very slow... But she was only able to give me only a few as best as she could within a given amount of time, so I’ve tried my best to make it look smooth. It really was a tedious task since the song was even slower than I thought. I just thought that I should’ve made it in 3D while I was working… (Laughs)
Did you just diss SARA?
- No way... SARA is my best friend...
- Well I’ve actually found the extended version for ‘Here in the Moment’ while I was working, and since this song was never been opened to the public, I was glad that I had the chance to add this song. If there’s any problem with the song, Ruby Tuesday would contact us right? I hope Ruby Tuesday would contact us through this opportunity.(Sob)
- No, no way! Never.(serious face)
I’ve always wanted to put in different IP resources from previously serviced games/services as a content, so I’ve requested many other songs as well. But I’ve got an approval for this song, so that’s why I’ve put this song in the new DLC.(When we were considering to put this song in the game, TAPSONIC World Champion had done it before us T_T) We were worrying about putting it in since it had no note sounds but as an experiment, we’ve decided to just put it in. I thank BEXTER for editing this piece very well.
- Well I’ve been expecting to work on this DLC for a long time so I think I worked maybe little too hard on it. I have a lot of affection for this DLC so… (haha..)
I’ve tried to make other normal/hard difficulty songs more difficult compared to the other contents. I would like all the players to think of the hard difficulty as your new goal, and the new area as an assignment for that goal.
- Well I had fun working on the BS again in 10 years. It felt like I was opening up a treasure box while I was working. It was memorable for me to find the old contents and look them up online while I was fixing them. I’ve organized complicated parts and added contents where it was empty/necessary… I hope you guys like it cause I’ve put in a lot of work to it.

- Some of you may remember the RD Colosseum mission in the BLACK SQUARE. If you clear the mission, Live Miracle video had come out and played.
Well, there is also RD Colosseum mission in the new BS DLC, and if you clear it, a special video will come out as well.
I hope you guys get reminded of the old memories and be moved/touched by the new DLC.(Smile) Check the special video in the game!
