[PS4-1] Around the World in 80 Ranked Matches: Event Jump Out! Worldwide Taiko Fest


Another Taiko Ranked Match Event for PS4-1 is approaching fast, starting November 2nd through 13th! Hmm, that's a familiar date to start an event with a worldwide-travel theme...

Beside the usual prize line-up including new thematic outfit parts, titles and the exclusively returning song, we'd like our Asian Donders to note that the starting/ending time for this event will be 18:00 JPT instead 12:00. That conveniently translates into about 09:00~12:00 for Europe or 02:00~05:00 for the United States (depending on time zone).

Taiko Ranked Match Event


Jump Out! Worldwide Taiko Fest
Title: Hello! World
Head: Compass
Body: Rainbow
Don-chan Sekai Ryokou
Body: Earth
Title: Master of the World
達人 ザ・ワールド
Don Koban ×5
ドン小判 5枚

PS. We are testing some new format ideas for the Additional Contents pages for PS4-1 and NS1, to something like the above table. Feedback most welcome.

If you hadn't caught our very explicit hints above, this event is very obviously celebrating the western release of Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session. BNEI's official press releases (e.g. Dengeki Online) confirms the event is including ghost performances from North American and European players. Hopefully that thins out the Infinite Rebellion matches.

Sonority Scouts - Outsider 5th Otogesai Newcomers + Monster Madness

Now that we've seen what the recurring cross-over tournament had in storm for the Taiko side, why don't we take a sneak peak to the other participating franchises' newcomer pieces, after the jump?

Who knows if these may be Taiko port material like last year's Tenkaichi-original songs, after all!

Song of the Week! 27 October 2018

Yes, yes, another perma-removal SotW feature... By this point, I'm almost convinced that the Taiko people are doing this repeating stunt on not-Saturday-featured-songs-by-us on purpose, so that I can get upset about that in the very same announcement week!

[PS4-1] A Pittari Veil for the Pittari-filled DLC Line-up


Song lists speaks louder than words, so what better way to relay the news for the next four DLC packs than to just show the song list tables?

First Video: Countdown

Blue ver. Version Update Newcomer: October 10th, 2018

Countdown Detective Conan

Together with the Performance Battle mode's new stages (+ related unlocks) and the public debut of the latest Touhou Project arranges on the arcade Taiko field, we also get a newly-playable Detective Conan song to talk about, straight from the long-lasting Anime series!

This longer-than-your-average-Taiko-cut Anime entry is not afraid to stress players' physical capabilites, as the repeating cluster-based note patterns are sure to get a toll on some 1st-timer careless plays.
