The long-awaited DJ Max Portable 2 for the PSP released in Korea last week, and I got my deluxe copy in the mail today. The full name: DJ Max Portable 2 Orpheus Package ~Night Black~ [Limited Edition]. Only 1,000 of these were made! This was a tough item to snag, but it’s a nice collector’s item for sure. There’s also a ~Metallic Silver~ of this set that’s essentially the same thing, but with a silver box and a different jigsaw puzzle design. Only 1,000 of those were made as well.
For those unfamiliar with DJ Max Portable 2, this is the sequel to last year’s sizzingly hot Korean music game. It’s very similar to the music game Beatmania, where you need to push buttons in time to the music. Or as a friend called it: “DDR for your fingers”. Check out last year’s version in action to get a feel for the game.
I haven’t tried playing the sequel yet, but in the meantime, here’s a look at the Limited Edition box. I also own the LE of the first game, and the production values of this set are MUCH better than last year’s. The box closes very smartly with a magnetic strip on the flap, as does a smaller box included inside that contains the jigsaw puzzles, art cards, and calendar. Other items in the set are a 3 CD soundtrack, the game, and an art book. The set overall has a very satisfying weight to it. Quality item all around.
