Confirmed Empress CS information

Post by Amp Divorax » Wed Jul 08, 2009 2:24 am

Famitsu and Dengeki magazines have confirmed most of the major information for the next IIDX CS release.

Current listed name: Beatmania IIDX 16 Empress + Premium Best
Release Date: October 15th 2009
Console: Playstation 2
Confirmed Songlist: 185 confirmed songs! (This doesn't include Sirius Preview songs which are confirmed, or possible 5 key transplants and CS premieres Konami has planned)
List Price: 7980 yen
Other Notes: The Dengeki article confirms that this is going to be the last IIDX release on PStwo and that it will be on 2 DVDs. Both discs will use the Empress theme.

Update: Foundation of our love and Pink Rose were listed for this release, but were recently remove from the listings on the official site and now The Shining Polaris and たまゆら (Tamayura) appear in their place. Both songs were not in Empress AC so that's a little surprising. Also, I've put up my theory on what songs will be on what disc.

Possible Disc Information:

Disc 1: (Currently 86 songs based on Konami's product page. CS Premieres, 5 Key transplants, and Sirius Preview Songs might be on this disc.)

Rage Against Usual
月光 (Gekkou)

moon_child

Blame
Love is Orange
Monkey Dance
Xenon

Disc 2: (Everything up to Innocent Walls is likely confirmed for this disc due to preview screens)

It's not known if they are going to use dual layer (which would actually be a good move cause it would make the game difficult to pirate) or split it to two single layer discs. In the future that will probably get revealed.

Also, given how Empress's songlist is, here are a few notes on some of the revivals. (http://vjarmy.com/wiki/index.php/CS_EMPRESS has the list of confirmed songs)

Go Beyond, Just a Little Smile, and Soliton Beam are in this release, but only Soliton Beam has different notecharts from what I've seen. Also, Make A Difference is listed as a revival song, but it will use the new notecharts from Empress AC.

Revivals that surprised me:
R3
The Earth Light
Leading Cyber
Abyss
Marmalade Reverie
dissolve
The Strong Jaeger
Silvia Drive
D.A.N.C.E.!
Blame
Both Era mixes

Revivals that are hard to justify:
Songs that have appeared on Red CS and newer. Aside from some of the songs with timing weirdness on Happy Sky there's not much of a point to revive them.
Ballad For You
Love Will...
Presto
Dancin' Into The Night

Songs that somehow didn't get revived:
22DUNK (The only 1st Style song in Empress AC not revived)
250bpm (This song is begging for a revival)
Outer Limits (The original arcade notecharts were revived for Empress AC)
Flute Man, Limited, and Breeding (Revived due to Slake's return in AC)
Insertion

Also, this songlist doesn't show any 5 key transplants, Bemani crossovers, or Console Debut songs so there is a chance (Albeit very slim given how large this songlist already is) of a few more songs appear.

I hear the R3 Black chart will have a full minute drill in the mid beginning using all 7 buttons.

I've updated the first post thanks to some translations of the articles that were done on the S3 forums with two major notes about this release.

Here's hoping they make some non-retarded black anothers for a lot of the old stuff that gets revived. Now THAT would be awesome

Agreed. Also, they'll hopefully add Anothers to songs that don't have them currently like they did for Bad Routine on DJ Troopers CS.

Oh, it's been confirmed that there will be preview songs from Sirius.

The Shining Polaris is confirmed as a revival song. Also, たまゆら (TAMAYURA) is confirmed as the first Console Premiere. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0ng8z2b240 shows the video used in GF/DM.) Last but not least, a cover has been revealed.

Pic of Empress CS... of note being the memory card requirement. (875 kb, which is really f*cking large for a PStwo save!)

That picture = WIN!

Also, the product page launched today and confirms the revival of Jelly Kiss. Hopefully preview videos of the CS Premiere songs will go up shortly.
