Here's what's changed so far (some of these are still unconfirmed, but once we hit the 16th and beyond most of the stuff will be changed)

And then there's the new Ura difficulties for the arcade:
  • Metal Police (which we've seen before on Wii and is confirmed 9*)
  • Saturday Taiko Fever (again from Wii)
  • Mekadesu
  • Red Rose Evangel
  • Kurenai
Kurenai?! Yes, that's the hot rumor at the moment...it's going to have 1199 notes and be at 10*. Let the epic begin!

EDIT: ARCADE HD IS ACTUALLY ALREADY RELEASED so that's how they got their info! On the 11th! Source


  1. What, Nijiiro is a new song? Or is it getting a new chart?

  2. ... One minute of silence for No Way Back, please.

  3. "Etude Op.10-4 down to 9*" What? This is 9*? This is the only 9* song I can't pass!

  4. If Ura No Way Back is 9, then BGM1 must be 9 too...... A lot of old 10 songs and 2000 series ran away because they were afraid to be down!

  5. wtf!? al these 10 star songs down to 9 stars? i smell a difficulty creep.

  6. @SHEKIDAN: Metal Hawk should stay at 10 stars IMO, it's not easy unlike No Way Back Ura

    I think they're doing this because the difficulty range of a 10* is being a bit too wide at the moment... I mean you know, we have the easy things like mint tears and IN THE ZONE and *insert name of that last boss song in DS3 here* at 10 stars while we also have things like Shimedore2000 and Ryougen no Mai on 10 stars... it's too wide, don't you think? I think these are very justified, especially since Joubutsu is rumored to be finally getting an AC releas

  7. Yea, nobody care if something like 恋文2000, flight bee or taiko time down to 8 or 9....but the problem is, a lot of this kind of songs gone, flight bee, carnival, Mika, some 2000, and perhapes Kamikaze and hikari no kanata...But IN THE ZONE..I just FULL it 3 times...and mint tears is hard, really hard. I mean they all got somethings that shouldn't appear in the 9* level.
    Now a lot of songs include Punishment and RT die, they just made a huge catastrophe!!

  8. Just to clarify, the Rotter that is now at 8* is NOT the godlike Ura mode
