For those that don’t know, the DJMAX series is one of the longest running rhythm game series around, but it hasn’t often been around for Western audiences to experience. That changes next year, however, as the folks over at Neowiz have announced that DJMAX RESPECT will be launching exclusively for the PlayStation 4 in the West in Q1 2018.

In a brief statement regarding the news, Ki Won Lee – the CEO of Neowiz, expressed joy at being able to bring the game to a global audience. “DJMAX RESPECT is an homage to over 10 years of DJMAX for its loyal fans the world over,” says Lee. “We’re thrilled to bring this landmark series back to the global Playstation audience.”

The game promises to represent the culmination of every past DJMAX release, and will actually include every single song from the series as DLC sometime after launch. The base game will come packaged with a ridiculous 147 songs to play in total, with 40 brand new songs created exclusively for the game. In case anyone reading will be in attendance at next weekends PlayStation Experience, DJMAX RESPECT will be there in a playable form, so make sure to check it out.
