List of titles in Taiko no Tatsujin (Kimidori Version)

The title system was introduced by a firmware update in Taiko 0, and gives players with access to Banapassports nicknames to put beside their usernames while they play, as a mark of their in-game achievements, much like in other rhythm games with user profiles. The titles can be interchanged in Donder Hiroba when you have obtained them, and the one currently selected will display on the arcade screen wherever the player name is. Some titles unlock hidden content like songs and costumes.

It is possible to get more than one title in a go by overlapping the conditions for unlocking them. In addition, for newer players, Don Points (DP) will also be given out for titles they get.

Almost all the titles from the Momoiro Version are available on Kimidori as well, with the addition of new title unlocks. Once again, titles are not ordered under a numerical order.

Titles are listed below, translated into English wherever possible.

Taiko no Tatsujin Kimidori Version: Rewards Shop


Continuing from Taiko Momoiro, the Rewards Shop is a service on the Donder Hiroba website, where players can access their play data and customize their costumes, Don-chan colors and titles. The shop makes use of the accumulated Don Points (which were useless in previous HD arcade firmwares after the counter was maxed out) by allowing players to use them as currency to buy things like costumes and costume parts.

All the not-limited items which were purchasable with Taiko Momoiro arcades can also be purchased by Banapassport newcomers on Taiko Kimidori, as well as new items since the latest arcade firmware's launch.

Twitter Snippets (July 25 2014) - The Day I Met G

Context from today's surprise blog update, did you wonder what G 意識過剰 actually means? Let's put it literally as "an excess of consciousness of G" with the context the composer Kaneko Chiharu provided through this tweet.

As far as the tweet's capacity can convey, the song will be sung in the shoes of a female who had an encounter with this fellow, mysteriously named simply G. When you choose the song, it is recommended to play with "the image of hitting him trying to escape as quickly as possible". That... is kinda wrong. Very wrong, in fact, if I may add.

Anyway, the song and its charts will hit Kimidori in two weeks. Let's see if you share this sentiment!
