Namco Taiko Blog (25 August 2011)- Taiko 10th anniversary 5th big news!

And the winner goes to.....

...Something tinier than expected!

Hold on....Isn't this Taiko 1? The very first arcade machine ever released? You'd be fooled, here's a zoom in picture of its actual size!

You guessed it- it's Taiko no Tatsujin's first plastic scale model of its arcade cabinet, and is an exact replica of almost every tiny detail in the real thing, from the pictures on the sides to the copyright notice to the position of the screws and even the drumsticks and coin slot! Model collectors take note, Taiko finally has a high-quality piece to add to your shelf!

Notice the screen in the machine. We don't know how it works yet, but you can change the screenshot on the monitor as well, which is a very awesome detail. Don-chan is too short to play arcade Taiko, lol.

The arcade replica model will go on sale sometime this December for 2940 yen.

Half of all the 10th anniversary announcements have been made. Five more to go! Fingers crossed that there will still be another console Taiko in the making....
