Weekly Game Music: Mind Mapping (Beatmania IIDX 16: Empress)

New week, new music.  Continuing the techno trend, here’s Mind Mapping by Ryutaro Nakahata (hey, another Taro).  It comes from a popular Japanese arcade game, Beatmania IIDX 16: Empress.

Beatmania IIDX 16 EMPRESS simulates a DJ deck using 5 buttons and a disk.  Much like any rhythm game, the object is to hit the right button when the “notes” hit the bottom of the screen.  The arcade was released in 2008 in Japan.  It was later ported to the Playstation 2 in 2009.
