* NoExportForYou: After ''Dance Dance Revolution USA'' (which was a fork of 3rd Mix) was released, no new arcade version would be released in America until [=SuperNOVA=], eventually leading to almost every other arcade importing ''Extreme''. Even Europe got some in between with ''Dancing Stage [=EuroMix 2=]'' (which had songs from MAX and MAX2, and a design based off MAX2) and ''Dancing Stage Fusion'' (in turn based off America's Extreme CS; it was the first PlayStation2-based arcade DDR game, setting the stage for [=SuperNOVA=]. It was also the one making a cameo in Music/{{Madonna}}'s "Hung Up" video).

** The PlayStation game Extra Mix (which has the Solo sub-series songs and the songs new to 4th Mix Plus) has ''three'' pairs of same-named titles: I'm Alive, Together Forever, and Sky High.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The trailer for a 2009 DDR game on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=len-36qxifQ Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3]] (which would have accompanied X2 PS2 and Hottest Party 3) showed a revolutionary new face of DDR; with 3D stages closer in style to ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'', a themable interface, DLC from ''every'' arcade DDR game, "Octo-Move" 8-panel mode, mainstays such as Edit Mode, and more. But somehow, it basically disappeared after E3, and was shoved aside in favor of ''DanceMasters''. But, when news of a [=PS3=] version re-surfaced in 2010, fans hoped it would finally be the game they were hoping for. What they got just threw everything out the window: it was built off the DDR 2010 content (The least said about that one, the better), 8-panel mode was only on Challenge charts (with a very confusing layout that shoved the corner arrows in the same lanes as Left and Right), and it did not have the same extent of DLC as originally promised (though to be honest, they ''tried'' at least).

** With no international release for X3, the arcade DDR landscape is back to how things were before [=SuperNOVA=], except with the added complication of e-Amusement, again (though these issues are in no way exclusive to DDR). DDR 2013 is only available as a leased rental with revenue sharing (like many other Japanese arcade games of the era), making importing even ''less'' viable. Though there may be hope, as Konami seems to have made an ally in the American locations of Japanese arcade/bowling chain [=Round1=]..

Also, in 2015, they began location tests at Dave & Buster's locations in California, with executives for the chain specifically saying e-Amusement would come with it if it is released in America.

I think this is what you were looking for.
* SimilaryNamedWorks: There are two different songs named Fantasy, one which debuted in MAX and another which debuted in [=MAX2=]. Yes, they both made it onto Extreme too.

* SequelGap: The arcade ''DDR'' games suffered from this; despite a steady release schedule for arcade games from the original up until ''EXTREME'' (From 1998 to 2002, there were 8-[=20ish=] ''DDR'' games released depending on whether you count spinoffs and {{Updated Rerelease}}s), there was a 3 1/2-year gap between ''EXTREME'' and ''[=SuperNOVA=]''. After that gap, ''DDR'' arcade releases became regular once more.

* BadExportForYou: Although the Korean versions of ''[=3rdMIX=]'' got some exclusive songs, they are missing several songs from the Japanese version. The pan-Asian version is even worse, lacking both those cut songs ''and'' the Korean songs.
