Feature: Super Namco Bros. Special/Ultimate!

This closing week has seen the release of the latest entry in Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. fighting game series. Just like with the former 3DS and Wii U entries, Bandai Namco has heavily contributed in the creation of this installment, resulting in some of its artists making new remixes/arrangements for the featured music game franchises!

Following up the work we've done for the 3DS and Wii U games' launch back then, what's inside this post is a selection of the Taiko-renowned artists's newcoming contributions for the freshly-launched Nintendo Switch entry, alongside some hats-off to other music gaming-related composers we found along the way. As the 3DS/Wii U arranges are also available once more, after the jump we'll supply you links to our formerly-released blog posts about the respective games' Namco share.

It goes without saying, but SPOILER ALERT! Some of the music featured here is coming from either boss battles or other late-content tracks from the World of Light adventure mode. Can't say we didn't warn ya~

[Vita1] The End of Your Love... Live: Termination of Popular Song Pack 7

Yes, we know; we are one month late to this "party" because we forgot about Vita1 and/or we assumed nothing is going to happen to it, but alas it was not.

Following the demise of Popular Song Pack 12 and Popular Song Pack 13 last year, Popular Song Pack 7 (人気曲パック7) has gone the same way since November 1 2018, likely due to the song from the Love Live! anime. While you can still play the songs if you have already downloaded the pack, re-downloads are not possible from now on even if you have purchased it before.

The other four songs can still be individually purchased at the usual 150 yen+tax price tag starting November 2.

Popular Song Pack 7 (pack sale ended; other songs 150 yen+tax each)

Taiko no Tatsujin Green Version (AC0G)

The Blue Version arcade firmware's lifecycle is nearing its end; thanks to a tip from Deadwantsha from the Taiko no Tatsujin Discord server, we already know the next color as well!

The usual online arcade vendor website tells us that the freshly-labeled Taiko no Tatsujin Green Version firmware will launch sometime in March next year, with preorders starting from this month's end. The fact that no other Taiko-related entry is listed up here means that we'll have a software-only upgrade for the HD cabinets yet again.
