DJMax is a long-running, beloved series of action-rhythm video games. With a proud heritage on Sony PlayStation platforms stretching back to 2006, the DJMax series has sold millions of copies the world over. The latest instalment, DJMax Respect, was released by Rocky Studio in co-operation with Neowiz in Asia and Korea in July. Now, seven years after DJMax Portable 3 launched on PSP, the series is returning to the West in early 2018 with the release of DjMax Respect exclusively on PS4 in Q1.
Ki Won Lee, CEO of Neowiz, stated:
“DJMAX RESPECT is a homage to over 10 years of DJMAX for its loyal fans the world over. We’re thrilled to bring this landmark series back to the global Playstation audience.”
From the press release:
Developed by Rocky Studio, and published by Neowiz on PlayStation 4, Respect represents the culmination of every past DJMax release, including every single song from the series as DLC available after launch.
