Development

The existence of a 17th version in the beatmania IIDX series was confirmed by Konami on May 25, 2009, alongside the announcement of the first public location tests at the Cat's Eye arcade in Japan,[1] which had already been promoting the location tests set to begin on the 27th of May for several days before the official announcement.[2]

The location tests revealed new features contained in the game, such as "charge notes", and contained a sampling of songs slated to be included on the final release.[3] Additional tests were held in late June to early July in Nagoya and at an arcade at the Norbesa in Sapporo.[4]

Gameplay

Sirius adds two additional note types to the game, "charge notes", which are a form of hold note, and the "back spin scratch". Selected songs contained these features on the location test build. [2]

Song list

During the location test, 20 new songs were available for play.[2]
