Song of the Week! 27 December 2014

Here we are again: the final Song of the Week feature for the year. Like the previous years, we're doing things in a different way than usual!

With Christmas and the New Year's Eve celebrations, the transitional period between the end of a year and the beginning of a new one has always been a cherished moment for being generous. One of those generous group of fellows are people who create Taiko fan charts! They love to share their creations to the world, as much as we enjoy featuring them through our occasional features (like our 'Made By You' posts), so let's give some extra recognition to them!

For this reason, today we are taking a look at a couple of fan-charted songs.

Twitter Snippets (December 25 2014) - Bokura no Sekai ni (Really) Dance wo

Trivia! Bokura no Sekai ni Dance wo translates to "Dance to our world". And Professor Sakamoto's new music video surly delivers that message well, inviting many Nicovideo personalities to dance to the Vocaloid tune, regardless of whether they are known for their dancing skills. It is awesome that everyone are enjoying it!

And why are we dedicating a Twitter Snippets for this MV? Because Don-chan is in it! When is he in? I am not going to spoil that and have you watch the video through yourself. Let's just say he is not in before the first chorus so that you don't leave too early.

Collegamento permanente dell'immagine integrata

The last time Pro Wrestling had something to do with Taiko no Tatsujin was a free-play exhibition cabinet at a Taiwan match. This time collaborative efforts hits closer to home, bigger and badder.

Wrestler Kazuchika Okada's signature entrance theme RAIN MAKER will be included in the arcade song list some time in the future.

In addition, Okada and co. will hold a press conference in regard of the collaboration on January 3, 2015, as part of the Great Pro Wrestling Festival (大プロレス祭り2015) event programme. The inclusion will be shown first-hand then, and Okada will also take on wrestler Gedo in Taiko. Free-play cabinets will once again be available for fans to try out (organized by tickets distributed on the day).
