[RANDOM] - Bandai Namco Europe's Taiko-Themed Trademarking Session

Now that the Taiko Switch launch coverage is starting to wind down, here's a little something that can be seen as the continuation of the (tentative?) locatization efforts of the most recent home console Taiko games since that Australian classification body found a few weeks back (link).

Over the past few weeks, the European branch of Bandai Namco has filled some trademark claims for the name portions that are related to the latest Taiko console releases, published online at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)'s European trademark section. The terms being claimed are currently 'under examination', reported below with the latest revision date (as of this post's original publishing date):
These are the official-translation names for several Taiko titles that have been released in the past, including the PS2-era Taiko game name (which became the series' overall name overseas) and the latest console outings for the latest-gen PS4 and Nintendo Switch consoles. Is the Taiko series truly going to have an official return to the West?

[NSwitch] - Studio Ghibli Pack DLC Announced

While normal gaming press probably ditches all Taiko no Tatsujin game coverage after release, we will always be with you through blood (from the blisters) and sweat (actually tears about how sh*tty AC0 Asia has been).

Anyways, the first actual DLC pack for Nintendo Switch Version is announced today and will be available starting August 9 (same day as the English patch).

Studio Ghibli Pack: August 9 2018 (500 yen +tax)

Kimi o Nosete Castle in the Sky
Tonari no Totoro
Rouge no Dengon Kiki's Delivery Service
Umi no Mieru Machi Kiki's Delivery Service
Gake no Ue no Ponyo
Difficulty ratings with * are from past Generation 1 or 2 games so may subject to change

[NSwitch] - Early Purchase Bonus Missing from Preloaded Purchases

Formally announced today (July 18) is that some of the earliest preloads of Taiko no Tatsujin Nintendo Switch Version did not come with the Early Purchase Bonus that is the Gold Don-chan (ゴールドどんちゃん) Performance Character. The issue has been fixed for Nintendo eShop purchases after 18:00 on July 12 2018 and download code preloads after 14:30 on July 13 2018.

For those who purchased and preloaded the game before that will have to manually download the character with a separate download code from the Nintendo eShop. The codes should have been sent via email today (July 18) to the email address associated to the Nintendo account. Here's a sample of the sender and subject for such emails:

Thanks Bui from the Discord for letting us use this screenshot

Inside the email should be two codes: The 16-digit Download Code (ダウンロード番号) is the actual one for you to get your bonus content, but do keep the Reference Code (For Inquiries) (管理番号(お問い合わせ用)) in case you need assistance with the exercise. The download code will expire after July 18 2019.

If you never receive the email where you should have, you should contact BNEI Support with the contacts in the notice, quoting your 21-digit Support Number (サポート用の番号), accessed from your Switch by My Page > User Settings.
