Twitter Snippets (October 19 2016): What the Heck is a Stabofe!?

"[...] Speaking of, what is a Stabofe? Stabofestabofestabofestabofestabofestabo......"

In a cryptic tweet from sound designer and composer relations person Yoshinori Kawamoto, we might have the faintest clue of what the hecka Stabofe is. Here's how we put it: If we had known about this we would have put it as "Stivalfe". (BUt no we are not changing it, that would make even less sense to other people)

Sonority Scouts - 3rd Tenkaichi Otogesai, Newcomers Round

The big event that made people cheer in joy two years ago is back, with the third iteration featuring a quartet of songs that -for the time being- are exclusive to their proprietary franchises.

As this very edition of the Otogesai had brought some hope of seeing the post-1st year transplants to come in other franchises in the future, let's see the other AOU-exclusive picks for the 2016 edition's first phase songs!

Taiko Time 6th Anniversary: Event Results and Talkback

Thanks for everyone who submitted to the anniversary events! Here are the results now! The quiz answers and a Hall of Fame sort of gallery can also be found after the jump.

...the thing is though, it appears that we maybe haven't specified too well that some of you might have played different notecharts in the tournament than intended. No matter though all in the good fun for the anniversary, and we just listed everyone's results with adjusted maximums this time. We'll make sure we make the rules clearer the next time we hold something like this.

All in all though, thanks once again for the continued support, and here's to more years of both Taiko no Tatsujin and the blog!

Taiko Plus/STH - Chain Chronicle 2nd Collab, the Portable Outings

As this week's Red Version update went live, the Android version of the game can effectively catch up with all the Chain Chronicle content, as both the previously-launched Normal Battle and Final Battle medleys have been added to the Gakkyoku Tori Houdai mode, together with the shared debut of newcomer Chain Chronicle Total War Medley and the three songs' respective Ura Oni modes.

On top of that, the short version of the Chain Chronicle Normal Battle Medley will become available to play once again on both app versions for free, until the campaign's end (November 14th).
