Random: Taiko no Tatsujin.....14?!

Caught in Berjaya Times Square, Kuala Lumpur.

What's this? A Taiko no Tatsujin 1? But it's not a Taiko 1, look closely at the screen, it's actually a 14! Look even more closely and you'll even spot the 10th Anniversary logo, meaning it's been updated with the 5 extra songs too!

How did this happen? Well, sometimes, to save costs, arcade owners purchase just the software for the specific Taiko no Tatsujin version (the cabinet banners and flags are provided with it) and overwrite the hard drive on an old cabinet, so technically any Taiko arcade cabinet (barring Taiko 0) can play any version of Taiko no Tatsujin, though this is one of the most extreme cases I've seen. So far apart in the timeline! It's playing one of the latest Taiko arcades, but with a really classic cabinet design. Who needs the plastic scale model when you can play on the actual Taiko 1? (lol). Hope it's refurbished properly...
