Trivia

  • A game-breaking bug was discovered in that, where all three save slot were used up and all three Dons have constume other than the default one, the game freezes on the title screen and won't load any thing. This was fixed in 2009, when Bandai Namco Games (Now Bandai Namco Entertainment) announced that anyone with the defective game can trade it in for the updated version for free.
  • This release introduces the first of several things:
    • Don's room, a central hub of the side options of the game, features changing Don's body color and costumes, and a new unlock system introduces notifications from in-game characters by the form of a letter, which will let players know what challenge to attempt in order to unlock a specific reward, or in other words, has unlocked a reward, such as a costume or song.
    • A new drumroll-type note named the "Denden" (でんでん) note is introduced, where players must alternate between the "don" and "kat" sides of the drum during each drumroll.
    • The daily dojo mode was introduced since this game, where player can ranks up by completing challenges on an assigned song on a specific difficulty.
    • A new tutorial on the basics on how to play the game is introduced.
    • The "Don Point" system that was featured on several PS2 and the first 2 PSP releases was permanently removed. It is unknown what the reason is, but it is possible that it was removed to simplify the unlocking system.
    • This game marks the first time where players can freely select modifiers while selecting a song (found in the "Options" tab next to the difficulty settings tab). In several PS2 predecessors, players had to enter the actual names (such as "Baisoku", "Yonbai", "Sanbai", "Doron", "Kanpeki", and "Abekobe") in order enable the modes.
