Konami Location Tests Reflec Beat in South Korea

September 1, 2010

Newsfeed 916 via

Alternate headline: “Konami strikes back in DJ Max Technika’s hometown”. The location test is actually over at this moment after Konami was able to gather player input over the period of a few weeks. Fortunately we have some extensive videos of the game in action now, it’s like a chaotic version of DJMT with the touchable notes floating all over the place as opposed to sitting on fixed points of the screen. Reflec Beat makes it’s Japanese debut next month in October but Technika 2 will not be far behind with a December release.

Konami's new bemani game: Reflec Beat

June 26, 2010

We first heard about Konami’s latest addition to their line-up of bemani games some time ago but despite a number of location tests in Japan, they did a pretty good job of preventing any pictures or video of the game from getting out onto the internet. Fortunately that information embargo on the new Reflec Beat has come to an end as Dasbacon of Bemanistyle.com has posted a video of the game in action. There is no question that the game has DJ Max Technika in it’s sights, with greater focus on reflexive action than other finger music games I have seen. See for yourself in the video below – Reflec Beat seems destined to be one of those games you’ll only see as a special import out of Japan on a rare occasion but you never know.

Konami unveils new Bemani title Reflec Beat

April 30, 2010

When checking the AM-Net Blog this morning, they had an announcement regarding a new Konami title that we had not heard about previously called Reflec Beat. I thought that it might be another update to Jubeat/uBeat but details on the game were pretty much non-existent on that site. Fortunately, BemaniStyle.com has people checking out the location tests of DDRX2 and Jubeat Knit in Japan, where Konami decided to show off Reflect Beat for the first time, so they have a brief rundown on what we know about the game so far.

The game features a multi-touch screen set vertically and with an aspect ratio of 16:10. It’s a 2 player game – two machines can be linked together but if no human player is present, it substitutes a CPU one. The game works similarly to a console game known as Boom Boom Rocket but there are currently no videos of Reflec Beat in action so we will have to wait and see how this game differs.They don’t mention whether it uses the new e-payment system Konami was testing out with the other games on loctest there, Paseli but I have to imagine that it will since the other two titles testing there do.

UPDATE: Several Japanese game sites have been going crazy about this game. As Konami was sure to keep cameras away from the machine close-up, they have drawn out how the game works and described it further. Check Small Room Aries, this blog, and Goku2 for more details.
