Just like the previous games, DJ Hero 3 will have the usual 3-button pathways, a crossfade, an effects dial and a euphoria button to control the music however it needs to be controlled. Taking the elements of the last installment, players will have the ability to freestyle once again though crossfade, scratch or tap. Everything is practically the same from the score attack type of gameplay, battle mode, and the new BAND MODE, where 4 players can play at once by up to 2 turntables, a guitar (only in Guitar Mixes), and a microphone (only in DJ/Vocal Mixes).
CMCroom the DJ Hero helped with the mixes of the game and selected the songs to mix and add to the project. Like his idol, DJ Shadow, in the first production of the game, he completed dry versions of every song, then posted the final wet versions of the mixes to perfection. To make this a game to remember, he decided to come up with bonus mixes and DJs for DLC, including candidate characters from players' favorite video games or bands, by popular demand of course.
The game consists of over 700 songs into 400+ mixes, all [song] of which hail from the genres of Hip Hop, Rock, R&B, Electronic, Soul, Trance, Dubstep, Big Beat, and even Acapella. All of them at this time were created and thought of by CMCroom the DJ Hero.
