Arc System Works has announced that nearly a month after the game’s debut they will be releasing a demo for Magical Beat.

The demo is planned for release on January 30th in Japan and will consist of five stages and a local ad-hoc versus multiplayer mode, giving those who perhaps missed its release a chance to sample its offerings.

Recently Arc System Works, who are renowned for their fighting games, announced that they would be bringing characters from BlazBlue to the rhythm game as downloadable content.

Magic Beat is available now in Japan.
