Despite Dragon's Lair's reliance on its visuals and less forgiving gameplay, it can be considered a precursor to DDR. Back of the box for the high definition Blu-Ray Disc version of Dragon's Lair shown, one of the latest in a long line of home conversions of the original.

Back of the box for Cryptic Allusion's 2003 homebrew for the Sega Dreamcast, Feet of Fury, which, in addition to supporting dance pads and the standard gamepad, has a "Typing of Fury" mode that makes use of the platform's optional keyboard, providing for a unique challenge among dance games.
