Beatmania IIDX 18 Resort Anthem is the 18th title in the popular Beatmania IIDX arcade series. Resort Anthem is a DJ-style rhythm game where players match onscreen notes using a turntable controller. There are seven keys arranged in a keyboard layout and a turntable, and players are scored by how accurately they hit the notes. The turntable is used on long red notes, and scratching sections require the player to move the turntable back and forth to complete the notes.
Resort Anthem has a Beach Vacation theme that runs through the different songs and interfaces. Also new to the series is DJ Order Mode, where the player can select missions to earn Dellar Points.
