Taiko Plus - Introducing the Momoiro Clover Z Pack

Friday can be an eventful day for Taiko Plus players, as it could mean the coming of a new songpack for their ever-expanding game. Just like for today!

Taiko no Tatsujin Tokumori's first website update

Quick update time for this Friday! As of yesterday, Taiko Tokumori's official website has become fully active, with the introduction of most of the website's sections and all the songs we know so far from the basic songlist, with no mention of either Mori no Kuma-San or the DLC collaboration song Monster Hunter 4G Medley. As of now, there's nothing more on the website we didn't know before, so consider this blog entry just as a small heads-up.

We hope that we can catch some of the Tokumori content from tomorrow's Tokyo Game Show presentation!

The Almost Transient Mysteries: What We Were Not Told for Kimidori 2.06

...or mostly what we have not told you for Kimidori 2.06. Yes we are sorry we didn't get to that sooner, and we are patching up the information void now.

Twitter Snippets (17 September 2014) - Taiko Wii U 2 x Monster Hunter 4G

Yesterday we forgot to mention this tweet from Capcom that -aside for confirming yet another Monster Hunter collaboration with the Taiko no Tatsujin franchise- also confirms to the world that yes, Taiko Tokumori will have DLC content for the game! But let's go in order.

This time around, we have a two-sided collaboration! Starting on November 20th, while Taiko Wii U 2 will get the brand-new Monster Hunter 4G Medley (モンスターハンター4G メドレー) and a promo Miiverse frame as free downloadable content, MH4G will get instead a Matsuri-themed outfit and a special Hunting horn, shown in the picture above. If you want to throw in some Taiko magic during your hunts, the Master of Hunt (狩猟の達人) horn will be your weapon of choice, complete with Don Face-shaped musical notes while performing one of the weapon's chants!

Namco Taiko Blog (18 September 2014) - Taiko Team's September '14 Stream Session!

With Etou being busy this week (as previously mentioned with yesterday's tweets), Takemoto steps in for the usual Thursday blog update for the announce of the next Taiko Team stream session. Get hype!

Mori no Kuma-san in Taiko Wii U 2


Starting from today, every major Japanese gaming-related website has started talking about the reveal of Taiko no Tatsujin Tokumori, with the help of the already-known image set from the Famitsu scans and others being completely brand new. Among these, there's a brief look at the game's starting Variety section that portrays the return of a popular Children/Folk song...

After gone missing from the home console scene since the first Wii Taiko game, Mori no Kuma-San will be back on Tokumori, possibly with its peculiar Ura mode as unlockable goodie! This brings the partial songlist total to 29, still lacking of any names from both the Classic and Namco Original genre.

Twitter Snippets (Sept 17 2014) - REBUILD and Play Cryptic

As Etou continues with his deserved break, Takemoto drops by today with a few things. First is a note about Professor Sakamoto's new album REBUILD, which has his new Vocaloid inclusion in Taiko Bokura no Sekai ni Dance wo (the full version, no less), and eight other songs. If you like the song on the arcade, consider supporting the artist and buy the album!

And do not worry about tomorrow's blog post, which Takemoto reassures will be up as scheduled. OK, thanks!

Now the play cryptic part. Later in the day Takemoto starts with the obvious that "Tomorrow is Thursday" and "Next week is end of the month", and then right out asking (sincerely) to try and make free time on Friday the 26th. Unless you have severe paraskevidekatriaphobia it should be nice to do so... Let's not get ahead of ourselves and hear more tomorrow.
