Beatmania II DX Club Version features all 13 songs from Beatmania II DX, and is designed to be linked with Dance Dance Revolution 2nd Mix, allowing simultaneous play by two to four players (up to two on each machine).
The Beatmania IIDX cabinet controls consist of two turntables, and two keyboards each with seven keys. This is a main difference between the original Beatmania and the Beatmania II series, with the Beatmania keyboard only consisting of 5 buttons per player. Other notable features of the Beatmania IIDX cabinet are the widescreen 16:9 display; and the powerful speakers and bass platform that vibrates beneath the player's feet.
The gameplay involves the player selecting a song, with the player then having to match the notes by pressing the keys and scratching the turntable in time with the music.
