Namco Taiko Blog (27 July 2012)- Two minor Taiko 0.5 updates

Less than two weeks after Taiko 0.5's update is out and already we're seeing a firmware update for it? Don't worry, it's pretty minor stuff they probably forgot to add in.

Because the songlist is getting really large (over 200 songs!), the folder system was introduced from Taiko 11. And now to save even more of our time, Namco is adding in a feature to close the folders so players can skip through genres even more easily. Simple tap the right kat followed by the left kat quickly to close the folder, like you would do to sort songs by difficulty in Taiko 10-14!

The update (Game Version 1.03) goes live on August 1, 2012.

That very day is also the beginning of the first Don Chare, so expect another update on it on that day!

And another post made just two hours later, to tell us about the FAQ page they have set up for Taiko 0.5 Simply head here to see it (or here if you're on a mobile).

Taiko no Tatsujin being updated

As expected, it's an existing cabinet being upgraded for the new major firmware, but then, how did they manage to retrofit the camera on top? That was not recorded in the video here. There's a lot of camera movements, but quite a miracle that someone actually managed to get permission to film the installation process!

Namco Taiko Blog 2 (26 July 2012) - CreoFuga interviews, part 1

This post is an interview with the first two winners of the CreoFUGA music making contest: DUNKEL who composed DIMENSIONS, and MOES who composed Dokidoki Kyun Omatsuri Time.

Namco Taiko Blog (26 July 2012) - Sunflower August and Don Challenge

As promised, today's blog entry is about the arcade events which will begin on August, with major focus about the new Don Challenge feature.

Taiko PSP DX's IDs, take 12

For celebrating one year of downloadable content for the third PSP videogame, this month's hidden IDs are A LOT MORE than usual! Seriously, it's like grouping four or five months of hidden songIDs all in a row, and there's a lot of songs both old and new!

Taiko no Tatsujin Codename: Katsu-Don update post

The latest update of the current arcade generation has been released, and we're ready to provide a live update once again! (and just two weeks after 3DS...phew!) We will also cover the PSP DX July download pack in this post, but they will be labeled with Roman numerals to differentiate them from the arcade updates.

Current number of updates: 26 (VI) and counting

Fan Feature: Be Green! and others

Tomorrow's another busy day for us with the arcade update and all, so here's another round of custom chart features from our dedicated readers before we start! Don't hesitate to submit yours; either by email or shared on our Facebook group! Let's see what we have in store today.

jylee18, one of our most avid contributors, has made his own music before, and this is another one of his ambitious projects. He's recently snagged a copy of voice synthesizing software Vocaloid 2 (Hatsune Miku) and created his own song with it and another music synthesizing software. Called 'BE GREEN!', the song is a remixed rock song which sends a message to the world to stop pollution and things that are harming the environment. Spread the word!

The song is in full English, and we all know how Miku handles English....not so well, it's a lot of garbled romaji, but jylee18 has uploaded a 2nd version of the song with major fixes to Miku's pronunciation. You can listen to the song here. The video above is an 8* Oni chart for BE GREEN!, with a Ura Oni chart too.

Here's the Ura Oni, with 900 notes and more dense clusters.

And now, another one from Yusri Khairi, who's got five more custom maps uploaded to his channel. Here's one of them, the Jubeat cover of Bach classic Heaven and Hell (Orpheus in the Underworld)

Borrows heavily from the Master route notes of Taiko's Heaven and Hell with a few added in, it even has around the same BPM too. A familiar way to enjoy a different version of a song we've probably played before!

Taiko 3DS Stamp Album and rank

All the unlockable content in Taiko no Tatsujin 3DS is arranged into a list of achievements called a stamp album (スタンプ帳), similar to the list used by Taiko PSP DX. For each achievement you obtain, a certain number of Taiko Points are added to your profile. Get a certain amount of points to raise your rank!

Taiko no Tatsujin 3DS costume list

Instead of being able to change colors for Don-chan, Taiko 3DS allows you to choose between the four different drum characters, the yellow and green ones being introduced in Taiko Wii 3. There are four sets of costumes, one set each for Don-chan, Kat-chan, Calcutta=Dondi (yellow Don) and Yomogimaru (green Don).

The costumes in each set look similar to each other with a color change or slight reskin, and each set of four is unlocked all at once (example: unlocking the Sweets costume would also unlock the Blueberry Mousse, Orange Bavarois and Green Tea Parfait costumes at the same time). However each character may only wear a costume allocated to it, eg Don-chan cannot wear any of Kat-chan's costumes.

For how to unlock the costumes, click the link to the unlockables page at the bottom of the table.

Namco Taiko Blog (23 July 2012)- Score deletion

This short post is a reminder to tell all players that once the Taiko 0 arcades have been updated to Game Version 5.00 two days from now, the player data on Donder Hiroba will be reset together with titles and Don Points! The data reneweal will take place on July 25th, at 2.00am, so the slate will be wiped clean while everyone in Japan is fast asleep. Better take a snapshot of your old scores before they are gone! Crowns and costumes remain, however.

Donder Hiroba will also be in read-only mode from 2am onwards until the update goes live. Until then, sit tight!

There is a small source code message in this blog post too.

"25日はK○W○S○K○HBで僕と握手!" (I will be shaking hands with K_W_S_K_HB on the 25th!)

Sounds like a person name, with the vowels blanked out! Wonder who it is, and what it has to do with the arcade launch?

This Thursday's blog entry will be about the first month of the Banapassport mechanic "Don Challenge", which will start on August 1st.
