Taiko Wii U 2's TV Commercial video

While today's stream is wrapping up, here's the first TV Commercial for the incoming Taiko game for Wii U. The reason of why we are posting this video is because it reveals yet another free downloadable launch song!

From the game's release until January 31st, 2015, Taiko Wii U Tokumori owners can download for free the song Do You Want to Build a Snowman (雪だるまつくろう), yet another tune from the popular Disney film Frozen. Remember to get it before it's gone!

Across Japan: Kimidori Asia says goodbye too

No no no, Taiko isn't getting withdrawn from Asia! This is referring to deletion of a few licensed songs, mirroring what will happen in Japan's Kimidori as well.

On November 1st 2014, Day by Day!, the new 8* floaty Namco Original introduced as October's Donchare song, will arrive as scheduled. And on November 5th, the great song deletion occurs. There are far less songs in Asia's list so the deletion is not as tragic either. The songs that will be cut are:

Kimagure Romantic (気まぐれロマンティック)
Niji (虹)
Sobakasu (そばかす)

Dragon Soul
Switch On!
Happy Happy (ハピハピ)
One day
Guts Guts!! (ガツガツ!!)
We Go! (ウィーゴー!)

Maru Maru Mori Mori! (マル・マル・モリ・モリ!)

So, exactly the same songs to be cut as in Japan, minus whatever was never in Asia's songlist to begin with.

First video of Garakuta Doll Play's 2-Player Ura Oni mode

If you thought that today's newly-released songs have no more aces on their sleeves, think again! Tenkaichi Otogesai song Garakuta Doll Play also got a custom 2-Player Ura Oni on Taiko, which is being featured on the video above this caption. Max Combo values are 526 for 1P and 516 for 2P.

Twitter Snippets (October 29 2014) - Everybody Comments! Oct 30 Livestream Comment Goals

And what is a Taiko Team livestream without a comment challenge? Here are the goals for tomorrow, and in addition to the usual icon/points/title part/wallpaper deals, the higher goals are a tad different.

76,500 comments: Talk Session on the Tatsudon T-shirt Design
Instead of having Etou going places with the inside joke-worthy Tatsudon T-shirt, we are just going to have him talk why this idea ever came across.

87,600 comments: Revival of the Outfits, "Breakdown" Edition
Did you miss one of the retired outfits on AC0? Vote on the ones you would like to see revived in a brand spanking new two-piece form!

100,000 comments: Limited return of famous tune
Another staple that is the limited appearance of a previous beloved song on AC0. This time though, it is so limited the song will only be open to all on November 23 and November 23 only. And I am not going to comment on whatever connotation November 23 has (Tenkaichi Otogesai Shop Preliminary aside).

Kita Saitama 2000 in the other Tenkaichi Otogesai games

While Taiko games got three boss songs from popular, external rhythm game franchises, Linda AI-Cue's Kita Saitama 2000 has been busy traveling into the other arcades for the huge AOU tournament event of this year. Watch as the second song from Taiko games crosses the rhythm game boundaries in three other franchises simultaneously!

First videos of Game Version 5.06's new songs

It's another big day for arcade Taiko players! Kimidori Version's GV 5.06 is now live, featuring a huge slew of new songs for (almost) everyone! Here are the first videos for the new tracks.
