Remixes/Song ConnectionsEdit

  • A remix of AFRONOVA, named AFRONOVA PRIMEVAL, can be found on DanceManiaX and Dance Dance Revolution 5thMIX.
  • A remix of the song, AFRONOVA(B4 ZA BEAT MIX) (although known as AFRONOVA(FROM NONSTOP MEGAMIX) in-game), appears on the DDRMAX2 ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK and in the same game as a Challenge Mode-only playable edit of AFRONOVA, as well as a fully-playable song on DDR Extreme.
    • This remix originally came from the 3rd Mix OST Nonstop Megamix, hence the in-game title.
  • An 8-bit remix of this song is present in Dance Dance Revolution GB2.

TriviaEdit

  • AFRONOVA has a signature step gimmick known as the Afronova walk, which is an extended crossover wherein the fourth arrow starts another crossover but is still an 8th as opposed to a 4th note. This would later be used in some technical songs, including the Difficult chart of KIMONO♥PRINCESS and the Challenge chart of London EVOLVED ver.A.

  • AFRONOVA is one of the many songs whose timing was fixed on DDR X.
  • AFRONOVA's X-Special counterpart appears as the Encore Extra Stage X-Special, accessible by AA'ing PARANOiA Rebirth(X-Special) as an Extra Stage.
  • AFRONOVA's original background had female leopard-skinned natives on DDR 3rdMix. They are actually the modified appearance of Reese Witherspoon's photo. But it was changed in DDR 3rdMix PLUS with more realistic natives.

Official Song CommentEdit

AFRONOVA
This song was created with Africa as its concept.
The sound is created so that if you listen, you can see the eminent
image of a vast landscape of the savanna.
Consequently, I think this song is filled with originality.
