"Nearly as popular as fighting games in the arcade, Konami's series of dancing coin-op games have created a subculture of dancing superstars who have their own web sites, their own message boards and their own champions."

Twin Galaxies recently verified a new world record on Konami's recent hit title, Dance Dance Revolution - 7th Mix, as a fierce rivalry has started between New York City cyber-dancers and an equally as talented corp of Dance Dance superstars in Tokyo.
