...well, today's blog entry is about Taiko being in the NicoNico Super Conference 3, with nothing new revealed. The only thing that was not said before was the date of the conference: April 26th-27th, 2014. Talk about a slow news day!
After being featured in last weekend's 1st PLACE event, Taiko Momoiro arcades are going to join the next NicoVideo Super Conference as well! Some tweets like this one have been spread since the announcement, with further updates coming from the Taiko Team soon.
So far, we know only that the third Super Conference will see the latest Taiko arcade model in the event's Gaming section, together with two other popular arcade rhythm games: Sega's maimai GreeN Plus and Taito's Groove Coaster. Last year, Taiko got a truckload of new Vocaloid songs and the first tunes from the Touhou games, so who knows what the Taiko Team is hiding up its sleeves this time!
