Taiko no Tatsujin: Murasaki Ver.

Kimidori's upgrade was announced today in the January 31st (midnight) livestream by the Taiko Team! Its name?

Taiko no Tatsujin Murasaki Version (ムラサキVer.)!

This time, Taiko moves to a predominantly purple color scheme; something it has not done before. Looks a lot classier than its predecessors in terms of theme! Currently we have no idea what new songs are on it, but it's slated for March 2015.

Japanese players will be able to test it out for themselves this coming February 14th, at the Mekuhari Messe. Look forward to more info and perhaps the first footage of Murasaki Version in action!

Twitter Snippets (30 January 2015) - The End of an Edible Battle

Two days ago, the recent Taiko x Meiji collaboration came to an end, and with that the Mushroom versus Bamboo Shoots arcade feud as well. But who actually won?

Emerging victorious since the very start of the competition, the Bamboo faction managed to stand alone as the ultimate winner of the feud! As such, the 'Bamboo Shoots Chibi-Don' (たけのこの里 ちびどん) outfit piece will be permanently unlocked for all the Bamboo supporters who made the victory possible!

As the true custom part will be put up soon, Takemoto has warned that the placeholder icon he put on Donder Hiroba for selecting the outfit piece will cause a temporary change for Don-chan, turning him into... a bamboo shoot?!? Man, talk about bragging rights. Rest assured, the real outfit piece will be available soon.
