Mastiff today announced that its rhythm game, Pump It Up: Exceed, has danced into stores for the Xbox and PlayStation 2. The franchise kicked off in the arcades, where gamers could cut a virtual rug to the tune of several different song genres, not just beat-driven electronic music. The series has been a success in Korea, where it launched in 1999. Like all Pump It Up games, Exceed was developed by the Korean company Andamiro.

Unlike its competitors, Pump It Up uses a five-button dance pad, with four buttons on the corners of a square mat and one button in the center. According to Mastiff, "while other dance games arbitrarily assign positions to a dancer's feet, Pump It Up features choreographed steps for each song and a five-button mat that lets the step designers reward players for not just where they put their feet, but how the feet got there."

The game is rated T for Teen and is available in two versions. A $59.99 edition gets the buyer the game and the game-specific dance mat, and a $39.99 version is available without the mat.

Mastiff also released the game's soundtrack, as follows:
