Namco Taiko Blog (25 May 2017) - Pre-Seasonal Change Update and the Yellow Retaliation (=more Yellow ver. Song Removals)

The weekly blog update deals with the next seasonal song list refresher for Yellow Version, as the May 31st update is up to add more than the Namco Original song march of last week...

Starting with some positive stuff, three beginner-friendly tunes are being added between the J-Pop and Anime genre, in conjunction with the Dojo Ranking's (partial) re-opening:

 Ashita Mo (明日も) "Dokomo's Student Discount" CM Song NEW!
 Road Movie (ロードムービー) Crayon Shin-chan: Invasion!! Alien Shiriri NEW!
 Cocotama Happy~Paradise! (ここたまハッピ~パラダイス!) Kamisama Minarai: Himitsu no Cocotama NEW!

The other side to this coin, however, is the future removal of 6 other tracks from all modern Taiko arcades. Apparently the Yellow Version launch removal round wasn't enough for this firmware, so here's a 2nd deletion stage, with the following songs not being playable anymore on June 28th:
  • Nijiiro no Sensou (虹色の戦争) RPG AC0 exclusive
  • Punishment 9mm Parabellum Bullet
    Also: AC 12.5-13-14 / PSP DX
  • Du-Du-Wa DO IT!! Aikatsu
    Also: Wii U2 (DL ended) / iOS
  • SURPRISE-DRIVE Kamen Rider Drive
    Also: Wii U2 (DL) / 3DS2 (DL)
  • Matryoshka (マトリョシカ) Hachi feat. Hatsune Miku and Gumi
    Also: Wii5 / PSP DX (DL ended) / Wii U1 (DL ended) / 3DS2 / iOS
  • Boogie Boogie Funassyi (ぶぎ ぶぎ ふなっしー♪) Funassyi Official Theme Song Vol.2
    Also: Wii U2
As usual, the removal will be done in multiple steps, with the 6 songs becoming un-selectable for Donder Hiroba tournament/challenges within other Banapassport friends from June 8th, up to the deletion of all the DH-related data on June 28th (favorite song setting, scores and crowns).

Addendum (27/05/2017): In addition to the deletion notices reported above, the Funassyi Taiko Sound will also be removed from the Katsu Medal Rewards Shop on June 28th; those who purchased it beforehand will still be able to use it.

  1. Can I help you with that?
    For "Tomorrow", it is actually called "Ashita mo"
    And also, you should fix that "Nijiiro no Sensou"'s subtitle from "RPG" to "SEKAI NO OWARI"
    Don't worry, I'm just Helping.

    1. Fixed all the inconsistencies that you listed in your comment. Thank you!

    2. And also, the costumes for Ichigo Hoshimiya, Akari Oozora, and Funassyi (as well as Funassyi's drum sounds) will also be gone at the same day as their songs would get removed.

    3. The blog entry officially mentions only the Funassyi removal, so we're only pointing that out for the time being, until a later official confirmation.
