beatmania IIDX 9th Style is a 2003 release in the long-running beatmania IIDX series. 9th Style brought a number of new features to the series, including:
- Use of Konami's e-amuse system to store player data and high scores.
- Support for the Konami ID network system.
- Inclusion of Beginner Mode, which reduced the difficulty of all songs to 1-3 stars.
- DJ names were extended from 4 to 6 characters.
The arcade version of 9th Style featured 257 songs, while the home version included 87 songs.
9th Style is the first release in the beatmania IIDX series to transition away from the Playstation-based "Bemani Twinkle" cabinet to the "Bemani PC Type 1" cabinet, running an embedded version of Windows XP. This change in architecture was widely blamed among the IIDX community for timing issues and crashes.
The home version of 9th Style ran on the Playstation 2 without issue.
