UBeat (also known as "jubeat" in Japan, also pronounced you-beat), is an arcade music video game developed by Konami Computer Entertainment Japan, and is a part of Konami's Bemani line of music video games. The game went on several location tests in Asia since December 2007, and was released in July 2008.. A North American location test for the game as UBeat was announced in August 2008. The cabinet utilizes a total of 17 screens, with 16 of them arranged in a 4x4 grid used to play the game.

The basic gameplay of UBeat is similar to Nintendo DS music games such as Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan and Elite Beat Agents and can be considered to be similar to Whac-A-Mole. Animated explosions are shown within the screens synced to a track of the player's choosing; when they fill up inside a screen, the player must tap the corresponding screen to score points. Taps can be judged as either Perfect, いい感じ (Good), 早い (Early), or 遅い (Late). 3 difficulties (Basic, Advanced, and Extreme) are offered for each song.

When used with an e-Amusement card, the game can not only save statistics, but can also allow online multiplayer. Local multiplayer can also be done when several cabinets are linked together. As with other recent Bemani games, e-Amusement is also required for some unlocks.
