[NSwitch] Taiko Switch Version's First Website Update

Today marks the very first website update for the next home console Taiko game! All the details are listed after the jump.

In a nutshell, three sections of the website are open as of today: How To Play, Game Mode and the Song List page.

Starting in order, the How To Play section features a description of the motion-based new control scheme of the Nintendo Switch that involves the use of the Joycons on mid-air, dubbed Furifuri Ensou (フリフリ演奏, lit. Swinging Performance). A firm gesture downwards with no angle will be enough to perform a Don hit, while a curved downwards gesture will suffice for a Kat note hit. If you can't make that slant gesture, you can also hold L or R and swing normally to register as Kat.

まっすぐ ふり下ろすとドン! ななめに ふり下ろすとカッ!

The How To Play section also hosts a page for the Taiko partner play, available at the beginning and capping 20 characters with in-game unlocks. Not only each one of them will act as a different modifier in terms of Performance Skills (演奏スキル), but they'll also replace your usual Taiko avatar for the performance!

うちわけがもっとうまくできたらな~!そんなあなたにはバチお先生 連打が上手にできたらな~!そんなあなたにはちょうちんうなぎ

Our first screens from the Mode page make us aware of yet another Song Selection design change for the console scene, now sporting a vertical look. After choosing a song and difficulty/modifiers, it'll be possible to choose the control scheme to use, among which is also the twin-Joycon+grip combo option.



In the Mode page is also possible to take a gander at the Party mode section, starring both old and new Taiko-themed minigames for up to 4 players to enjoy! Please note, however, that this specific Taiko game will only have the main-mode play accessible only for 1-2 players on same-console multiplayer, as opposite to the post-Wii3 home console games era. If you want a 4-person head-to-head on the performance game, you would need 4 Nintendo Switches with 4 copies of the game on local wireless connection.


Last but not least, the songlist! Of the newly-announced starting song list threshold of 70 songs (without DLCs), we now have a 20-something track list for us to leave our first impressions on:

 Takane no Hanakosan (高嶺の花子さん) Console debut
 Tomo ni (ともに) Console debut
 TT - Japanese ver. - Console debut
 Zen Zen Zense (前前前世)
 Natsu Matsuri (夏祭り)
 Doko Made Mo ~How Far I'll Go~ (どこまでも 〜How Far I'll Go〜) Console debut
 Howling New!
 Be The One
 Itsumo Nando Demo (いつも何度でも) 
 Alola!! (アローラ!!)
 A Cruel Angel's Thesis (残酷な天使のテーゼ)
 Odore・Dore・Dora Doraemon Ondo (踊れ・どれ・ドラ ドラえもん音頭)
 Haikei Doppelganger (拝啓ドッペルゲンガー)
 Youtube Theme Song (YouTubeテーマソング)
 Grip & Break Down! -Tatsujin edit.- (Grip & Break down !! -達人Edit.-)
 Jump Up, Super Star! Short Version
 Splatoon 2 Medley (スプラトゥーン2 メドレー)

As of now, the generic 'Summer 2018' release date hasn't been updated yet.
