[NSwitch] - Taiko Switch's First TV CM



With the latest Taiko rumor being debunked, all we have left to talk about for today is the release of the first CM video for the Taiko Switch game on Youtube, which was also posted on the game's official website earlier today.

[RUMOR] - DEBSTEP! on Taiko Switch?!



It appears that the heated Taiko game for the Nintendo Switch has fallen to the hands of some other player... or is it?

Clickbait-y thumbnail aside, here's an off-screen play of someone who's supposedly playing Yaju's DEBSTEP! on the yet-to-be-released home console title, showcasing one of the game's assist characters. Apparently, the Turtle's Performance Skill halves the scrolling speed of the entire song, giving out the visual note pie mish-mash displayed above, but is it truth or fiction? You decide, while we're waiting for more official sources validating/dismissing the footage shown above...

[UPDATE] - Confirmed to be fake.

Namco Taiko Blog (24 May 2018) - Blue ver. June Version Update, an Addendum


The nick-named Number 11 intern is back to shed some lights on one newcoming feature that was previously exclusive to console games: the possibility to have 2-player matches with one player playing a song's Oni mode and the other playing its Ura Oni counterpart!

In order to do so, the player that wants to play with the regular Oni mode of a song has to select the Oni mode first, while the Ura Oni player has to trigger the Ura Oni layout change (=10 Kat hits to the right when the Oni mode is highlighted) and select it afterwards. This feature is bound to come with the June 1st update to Blue Version, which is also adding the Summer Rewards Shop content.

Taiko Blue Version's Summer Rewards Shop Previews (2/2)





Together with the early soundtrack news, today we're also getting the preview clips for the other two newcoming songs of Blue Version's Summer Rewards Shop lineup, of which we also briefly talked about yesterday (link). Have fun!

Taiko no Tatsujin Original Soundtrack: Takoyaki

Roughly one week before the first of the 8 Clarice Disc x City Connection Taiko albums's release, we already have some earliy notices about the third album's coming, thanks to yet another stray Amazon entry.

Going under the Takoyaki (たこやき) subtitle, the third of the album mini-series is being advertised a 28-track deal starring "songs that you'd want to endlessly hum to yourself", from home console Taiko games' theme songs to (ugh) (ndr: Lokamp) popular Vocaloid songs.

The album is set to a June 27th release, with its songlist's contents still unknown.

Thanks to Deadwantsha from the Taiko no Tatsujin Discord group for the find!

Twitter Snippets (15-18 May 2018) - Mid-May's Random Composer Facts


In order to pan out yet another slow news day on the Taiko front, we've found some tweets from the past week that shed some lights about some of the next Namco Original, songs ahead of their scheduled debut.

Up here we have one screenshot from an Oni play on Hinaru Medjed no Hinaru Yuu'utsu, the Egyptian-flavored God Collection song that is brought to us by the recurring Yuuya Kobayashi/Yamamoto Momiji duo from IOSYS. See you after the jump for a couple more juicy tweets!
