Oosawa Makes a Trip! V Version at BNEI Taiwan Summer Event


Japan is not the only region to get taster events, as Bandai Namco Taiwan hosts a summer event on July 11 in Taipei, to showcase Taiko no Tatsujin V Version among other titles. Producer Oosawa will be attending in person and hosting many of the sections.

The most exciting would have to be the 30-contestant showdown tournament using the new game. With the prospect of winning a Tatsudon T-shirt (5 finalists) and even a complete V Version-plus-device bundle (winning final battle), contestants will have to play in an elimination series, the victor then having to face off a mysterious foe on a yet unveiled song. See the tournament details here, which includes a link to the registration if you are so inclined.

Outside of competitive grounds, you can also just come and experience the new game that is V Version and meet Oosawa, all while grabbing sweet loot including sticker sheets and coasters (while stocks last).

Song of the Week! 4 July 2015

In recent times, minor software updates for Taiko arcades are behaving like New Year celebrations: the exciting things that have yet to come must be contemplated alongside what we lost in the previous time period. For Taiko means, this means old songs are disappearing and new ones are rising.

This week, we're carrying on this peculiar spirit by featuring one of the lost songs, together with one among the newly-added ones.

V Version Leaks: Gimme Choco!! (...and Ura)

Our last post for today is a peculiar early bit of information for Ps Vita's first Taiko game, coming from the official Japanese Playstation Blog. In these weeks, some of the blog's staff is playing the game in order to give their first impressions about its modes and songs. For this week's feature, the licensed and Classic songs were the main focus.

However, from a quirky comment from the blog's director we now know in advance that Babymetal's Gimme Choco!! will come with two Oni modes, with the regular one being rated 8* and its Ura counterpart being a 10* challenge. Talk about sudden bombshells!

V Version Update: Trial Stations!

In case you are still on the fence about V Version after the launch, try it on July 9 at Games Maya (Kasai, Tokyo) and July 11 at WonderGOO (Oosu, Nagoya)!
