Together with the Taiko Team's Development blog, the Tekken gaming's official webspace (in Japan) gets a new entry today in order to explain in great detail the Tekken side of the Taiko no Tatsujin collaboration that has been announced last week.

Namco Taiko Blog (25 August 2016) - #LivestreamRecap

With Daifuku on the helm for the weekly blog update, today we're getting the Taiko Team's visual recap of the past livestream with higher-quality pictures of all the slides that have been used during the past broadcast, together with the Taiko gal spreading a little bit of the infamous tag symbol for Internet social media means.

No release date for the next arcade update has been given yet, but at least now we know when the next livestream session will happen: September 30th! If you want to suggest some topics to talk about or want some early snippets in general, the Taiko Team's Twitter account will be the main solution to both needs.

List of Title Parts in Taiko no Tatsujin (Red Version)

From Momoiro Version 2.04 onwards, arcade Banapassport players are able to set titles for their personal nickname either with one of the titles previously unlocked by doing specific tasks or by creating a new one by scratch by using specific title parts.

These title parts are basically divided into two different groups: nouns and phrases ('Group A') and symbols or connectives ('Group B'). Players can use up to 2 words from Group A and a symbol/connective from Group B to construct a custom title, following the scheme A-B-A. Any spot of said scheme can be left blank and the slots for Group A words can be filled with the same word.

While all the units from Group B are unlocked by default, players have to get the title parts from Group A through the rewards shop. Certain Group A parts can be unlocked only by achieving specific goals just like regular titles, whose unlocking requirements are explained into White Version's unlock page.

List of titles in Taiko no Tatsujin (Red Version)

The title stem was introduced by a firmware update in Taiko 0, and gives players with access to Banapassports nicknames to put beside their usernames while they play, as a mark of their in-game achievements, much like in other rhythm games with user profiles. The titles can be interchanged in Donder Hiroba when you have obtained them, and the one currently selected will display on the arcade screen wherever the player name is. Some titles unlock hidden content like songs and costumes.

It is possible to get more than one title in a go by overlapping the conditions for unlocking them. In addition, for newer players, Don Points (DP) will also be given out for titles they get.

Almost all the titles from the White Version are available on Red ver. as well, with the addition of new title unlocks. Once again, titles are not ordered under a numerical order.

Titles are listed below, translated into English wherever possible.

Taiko no Tatsujin Red Version: Rewards Shop


Continuing from Taiko Momoiro, the Rewards Shop is a service on the Donder Hiroba website, where players can access their play data and customize their costumes, Don-chan colors and titles. The shop makes use of the accumulated Don Points (which were useless in previous HD arcade firmwares after the counter was maxed out) by allowing players to use them as currency to buy things like costumes and costume parts.

All the not-limited items which were purchasable with Taiko White arcades can also be purchased by Banapassport newcomers on Taiko Red, as well as new items since the latest arcade firmware's launch.

It's a Kick-ass Poison Livestream Zapping (19/08/16)

With this year's Summer season still going strong, Bandai Namco's Taiko and Synchronica teams have joined their forces once more for a nearly-4-hour broadcast, in order to spotlight the most-immediately incoming content for both series.

Of course, being a Taiko blog we're going to focus more on the former, but who knows if the 2nd block might have some surprises along the way...?
