be StepManiaX arrives in Belgium

StepManiaX arrives in BelgiumThe first StepManiaX machine has just appeared in Belgium. You'll find it at the S'pace bowling alley in Malmedy (formerly Bowling 362). Of course, S'pace is more than just a bowling alley. In addition to the 12 bowling lanes, there's a bar, an arcade area with video games, cranes and pinball machines (game list), racing simulators and a quiz room. After a few transformations, the arcade section reopens today with new games such as Jurassic Park Arcade, Mario Kart Arcade GP, Pac-Man Battle Royale, Skill Shooter, Super Bikes 3 and the famous StepManiaX. Already very popular in the United States and the United Kingdom, StepManiaX is a dance game developed by Step Revolution (In The Groove, ReRave, Pump It Up Pro). This video game began its career in American gyms in 2017, at which time the machine was equipped with a 43" screen and a 2.1 sound system. An improved version of the cabinet featuring a 4.2 sound system was released in arcades at the end of 2019. Finally, a deluxe version was released at the end of 2022, featuring a 65" touch screen and an 8.1 sound system. This latest version is the one found in Malmedy. The game features more than 400 songs, with new titles added every month. There are songs of all styles, and from a variety of artists including Naoki, Scott Brown, Cubic 22, E-Rotic, ... Having started out in gyms, the game shows the number of calories burned at the end of the game and aims to be more accessible than other arcade dance games. If you want more detail, feel free to check out our interview with Kyle Ward, the game producer. For the full experience, it's advisable to download the StepManiaX app to your smartphone (available on App Store and Google Play). The app keeps track of your scores for each song, the calories you've burned and your place in the national and world rankings. It also lets you search for players, define a rival and edit your own step charts. You have to admit, it's unprecedented. Other machines will be deployed in Belgium and tournaments organised in the future, so head over to S'pace Malmedy and start training!
