64. The first new Namco Original gauntlet is here! Dodon ga Do~n (ドドンガド~ン) (4/5/7/8) brings high basic BPM values for frenzied play! But the worst nightmare arrive with its Ura mode (video found by Living Jelly), where exhausting streams and Angel Dream-like situations collide with high speed! 10 stars and 876 notes for Ura Oni.

59. Zastohl no Madousho and Tsukikage SASURAI confirmed unlockable. Conditions and difficulty stars (if revised) currently unavailable.
58. Correct name for the new Kikyoku is 'Tanpou ~Blooming~'. 'Zhan Fang' is the Chinese pronunciation.
---November 18---
57. As Day 2 ends, today's updates are reported both on the official songlist and in the Special Numbers section.
56. Confirmed 9 stars for Venomous's regular Oni. Still, no videos of it... (By the way, Venomous Ura has the Nam-combo value as Max Combo)
55. Nicovideo strikes twice! Another couple of tasty unlockables are on the way
      -) Reviver (リバイバー), another new Namco Original with lyrics. Ratings 3/4/5/8, and reaches 765 notes on Oni mode. Unlockable with 93.000 Don Points.
      -) VENOMOUS URA! The new Ridge Racer 3DS tune is the first non-Namco Original unlockable. Swapping between custom scrolling sections and some Hataraku moments, Venomous's Ura Oni has 10 stars, and so far is the first new one with that rating (3/5/6/?/10). 66000 Don Points to unlock.
54. First video of Hey, Mr. Professor from Nicovideo, new Namco Original awarded after 75.000 Don Points! 7* on Oni.
53. First video of Nijiiro Yumeiro Taikoiro's new Oni notechart (3/5/4/6). 390 notes on Oni for the oldest Taiko OP's notechart revamp.
52. Next to MATSURI D/A in the song selection screen (video below), we can spot another couple of unlockables: Wanya World and Hey, Mr. Professor (ヘイ、ミスタープロフェッサー). No info about the latter Namco Original yet...
51. Even MATSURI D/A is a reality! New 8* song with other 1/6 and 1/4 combined streams.
50. First video of 1 Dream, Danboru Senki's OP theme. Don't be scared of the high scrolling speed, the player wanted to ramp up this 5* tune's difficulty with scrolling modifiers!
49. Some of the past rumors are getting real... Tanpou ~Blooming~ joins the ranks of the Kikyoku songs with reminiscent vibes from Zeihen and Kikyoku itself. 445 notes and 7* for its Oni.
48. New Taiko confirmed to be running on the Namco System 357 board processor, which was based off a PlayStation 3.
47. Someone on 2ch asked a question about difficulty stars for secret songs, apparently not knowing about Samba Alegria. But everything else he mentioned was intriguing. Are they real?
-綻放 (new Kikyoku?)
-サンバ アレグリーア
-サンバ アレグリーア裏
46. Confirmation of yesterday's difficulty findings: Yawaraka Sensha Ura down to 9*, Angel Dream and Pastel Dream down to 8* (not maintaining at 9*)

40. Another Don Point unlock hides the return of a recent song series. The 8* 3Q-4U-AC00 breaks the standards of the ac. series for being the first with lyrics and no confusing note clusters, no full stop in the title and AC is in caps. 539 notes on Oni (maybe this is why players are calling it Taiko 0)

32. First video of Chiheisen no Aeolia (difficulty 4,6,7,7). 563 notes on Oni with a rather un-7* like stream at the end. Can't tell anymore with the new difficulty standard, lol :3

---November 15---


  1. ENGASU!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Glad to see it's still alive.

  2. ...please Namco, give us back the old "song clear" jingle! The new one is sooooo crappy.

  3. Ura Venomous seems not hard, without scrolling it is just a 9* under the new rule....easier than Punishment

  4. 85% of the songs in the arcade have the 765 combo.. O_o

  5. Samba Alegria, a brazilian song? o_o
    Im from Brazil, I hate samba but it´s quite amazing!! :3

  6. YES FINALLY ANOTHER TALES SONG! The Arrow was Shot..eh, i wish it's Awkward Justice instead of that song...oh well.

  7. @intelectuando
    Nahh. It's a Namco Original. (I'm from Brazil too, btw =p)

    @whoever edits this XD
    Alegria means happiness, in portuguese.
