First videos of the Tenkaichi Otogesai's Block Finals songs

When a rhythm game collaboration of such deep impact affects the gaming world, the elements of nature itself can't help but gloriously rise with energy for the hype, resulting into being personified in four brand new tunes being crossed-over around the influenced franchises!

Today we finally have a taste of the freshly-released, brand-new songs for the Tenkaichi Otogesai's Block Finals.

Namco Taiko Blog (25 November 2014) - Tenkaichi Otogesai's Block Finals Songs


As you can see from the title, this surely isn't no surprise to us, isn't it?

We already covered the four new songs yesterday, so let's jump quickly to some of the more obscure details: on Taiko, the three songs from external rhythm games (Scars of FAUNA, FUJIN Rumble and VERTeX) will be grouped in the Game Music section, while Yuuji Masubutchi's Ignis Danse will be put in the Namco Original genre, making it his latest NO tune on Taiko after villain Dr.Waruru's theme song, back on Taiko Wii 2 days!

Look forward to video footage of these songs tomorrow, together with another out-of-schedule Taiko Team blog entry about the incoming new arcade software upgrade!

It was the Shop Preliminary for the Tenkaichi Otogesai tourney just yesterday, and today we are already going onto info about the Block Finals!

The jackets about are for the newly-composed songs exclusively for the tournament: Ignis Danse by Yuuji Masubuchi, FUJIN Rumble by COSIO, VERTeX by Hiro and Scars of FAUNA by Naoyuki 'Nekomata Master (猫叉Master)' Sato.

Thematically, this phase of the collaboration/tournament has the four games assigned with one of the classical elements:
  • Taiko is Fire which is featured majorly in some Japanese festivals (matsuri)
