Taiko Wii 4 - Confidential leaks from Famitsu

Lokamp here for some updates! As linked to us by anon in the chatbox, Famitsu'sd website has already started to raise the curtain on the last Taiko Wii game, now officially announced. Taiko no Tatsujin Wii - Definitive Edition (太鼓の達人Wii 決定版) (the kanji pronounced as 'kettei-ban') is the official name of the fourth and most likely final experience of Taiko on Nintendo's home console.But fear not, this swansong is not a sad end!

Some of us might remember the "Taiko Memories" survey, in where users were asked to choose their favourite songs through the entire series. As we said a few days ago, some of these will make it to the latest arcade....and to the Wii as well, where the highest-scoring songs will be on the tracklist of this compilation! And it's no mere compilation: despite the fact that there will definitely be a few repeats from previous Wii Taikos due to this, Kettei-ban features an amazing truckload of 100 songs! Yes, one hundred! This Definitive Edition also contains the features seen in previous Wii games, like lyrics, Miis and 4-way local multiplayer. And now, time for some screenshots!

That's the theme song up there, titled Momoiro Taiko Paradise ('momoiro' means 'peach-colored' or 'pink'. Hinting at the boxart color?)

The more songs are passed, the more costumes are provided!After an absence of costumes in Taiko Wii 3, they make an aggressive return, with again, 100 costumes to choose from! (hey by the way check out that score at the back lol)

Not all the songs will be repeats, aside from the theme song there's a screenshot of Everyday Gachusha (AKB48) which is also on Arcade HD's songlist as well.

These are screenshots of the special dancers, which Wii fans will be quite familiar with. But New Super Mario Bros. Wii again? Hopefully it's a new medley or something. YMCK comes back with a brand new song however, called 'Danba Danba Din Dan'.

It's also confirmed that this game's release date is set for November 23rd, about two weeks after the new arcade's debut. The next two issues of Weekly Famitsu will show more of Taiko Wii 4 as we go on, so stay tuned!

  3. Can someone tell me the title of the theme song? Hiraganas looks odd when it's writen in a 1-stroke style..:/

  4. @Ianon: uh, "●みんなが選んだ100曲をドドンと収録" means 100 songs..... chosen by 'everyone'.

    So they're pulling off the popularity stint and putting 100 favorites?

    ......are they Konmai? WTF are they doing

    Unless this means that they're actually going to put 200 songs now. Yes please.

  7. ^Zekira: There's going to be new songs as well if you read the following line in the article

    '新曲や定番の人気曲など100曲が収録されている本作'

  8. So I was right then. Then why isn't that mentioned here?

  9. Oh just please put in Yuugao and Hello!Halloween...cuz I don't own Wii2 :<

  10. I fixed the article, it's there now.

  11. gah, they better not put too many repeats, with 100 songs, i'd rather have them be new songs and songs that haven't made it to console yet *COUGH*punishment*COUGH* DON'T DISSAPOINT ME NAMCO!

  12. @koocono: I'm pretty positive that at least 100 songs are revivals

    ReplyDelete
  13. Can the Wii DVD disc even hold that much?
    IIDX16 had to resort to two DVDs, each one containing about 99 songs. So if at least 100 are revivals...

    ReplyDelete
  14. Then we'd have a dual layer disc like Smash Bros lolololol

    ReplyDelete
  15. Well, Wii3 with 71 songs was 3.01 GB, so yeah, a sinle-layer disc will be enough. Or not?

    (inb4150+songs)

    ReplyDelete
  16. But hey, 100 old songs is balanaced out if we have 50 new songs lol :P

    ReplyDelete
  17. @Ianon: don't forget that for every IIDX song there's a vid that comes along with it, which is kinda heavy on space too. Taiko does not.

  18. @N5S: uh what, my Wii3 ISO is less than 1GB... wth

    ReplyDelete
  19. Actually, all Wii ISOS are precisely 4.73 GB, that's the file size limit.

    The actual game file is usually much smaller.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ah, that makes much more sense. I also forgot about DL capabilities of DVDs.

    ReplyDelete
  21. What pikaby said. When I transfer my ISO to my WBFS HDD, the actual size is displayed there, so I know precisely the size of my Wii3 ISO and it's definitely the smallest of all the Taiko Wii games I have, being at around 0.94GB I think.

  22. It had the most songs, but I think the lack of cutscenes and voice samples in Wii3 must have reduced the size a tad.

    ReplyDelete
  23. *lack of costumes, voice samples are still here :P

    ReplyDelete
  24. ^ Not as many as in Wii1 and 2, remember all the dialogue had a voice sample to them. Wii3 has significantly much less.
