It’s probably been about 10 years or so since Konami’s arcade rhythm game was in the news, but… it’s back in the news, and it’s not a new sequel, it’s a movie. And if you think that’s bizarre – and it is bizarre – it gets even more bizarre because apparently it’s about “a world on the brink of destruction where the only hope is to unite through the universal language of dance”.
According to Deadline, the project is in development at former Warner Bros exec Greg Silverman’s new media company, Stampede, in collaboration with producers J. Todd Harris and Marc Marcum of Branded Pictures Entertainment, and franchise publisher Konami. Not much else available for the moment, but it’s gonna be a thing and now you know even if you wish you didn’t.
The first Dance Dance Revolution game busted out in 1998, with approximately one million sequels launched on multiple platforms including Xbox, PlayStation, and mobile devices between then and 2016.
