CoroCoro Channel's Exclusive Preview on AI Battle Performance Mode

With their ties with game and toy makers, CoroCoro Comics frequently gets dibs on exclusive initial scoop for Taiko no Tatsujin and other kids-friendly games.

This time, the CoroCoro editorial got an exclusive hands-on tour around the brand-new AI Battle Performance mode using Hyakka Ryouran Futsuu, guided and cheered on by official-blog correspondent Number 11 (voice and partial face reveal!). You can catch a glimpse of how it feels with the visual presentation and remixed results jingle.

Twitter Snippets (June 21 2019): Hung-rock Hanging Out With The Katsu Medals

A Twitter Snippet post on Friday may lead you to think it's another "weekend warrior" style song addition, but not this time.

The thing happening on June 22 2019 is the addition of Hung-rock to the Katsu Medal Rewards Shop (what Asia), for those who weren't with us before Green ver. or not having finished off the Phoenix boss from the late Performance Battle mode back in Blue ver.

Namco Taiko Blog 2 (20 June 2019) - WHF '19 Summer and Taiko Green's End-June Update (The Whole Deal)

We've already heard of the next song removal pool and the brand-new AI Battle Performance's debut (with related unlockables) as the most prominent features in the next Taiko arcade update.

Today, however, we come to know about what else has been left over to be covered!

[PS4] Donder Pack Vols. 21~23 Song Lists Filled... sort of

Spoiler alert: there is still no word about whatever the "?2???" in Donder Pack Vol. 24 is supposed to be. But having the other three packs completely revealed is better than nothing, eh?

Namco Taiko Blog (June 20 2019): Future Drumming, VR Drumming, La-la-la

Recommended music for this post's title: Future Lab

The June 27 update to Green ver. (featuring rival AI technology from the year 2765) is not the only futuristic development we have. Now behold Taiko no Tatsujin VR da-don! (太鼓の達人 VRだドン!)

Coming soon as a VR Acitivity for the Bandai Namco-operated VR ZONE OSAKA in Umeda, Osaka (added July 20 2019) and the all-new MAZARIA in Ikebukuro, Tokyo (opens July 12 2019), you will be able to play Taiko no Tatsujin in a virtual reality setting as the name suggests.

Although graduated from her Taiko Sister role, the beloved Daifuku returns to Taiko no Tatsujin scene being the person-in-charge for the project, making her the perfect person to write today's Namco Taiko Blog post. Details will come after this jump.

Song of the Week! 15 June 2019

Due to time constrains, we couldn't have our usual "last goodbye" feature to the nth arcade-exclusive song that is about to leave Taiko gaming for good, due to its imminent removal.

Rest assured that every knot comes to our comb, though...

Namco Taiko Blog (14 June 2019) - A Primer to the AI Battle Performance Mode

While we've heard before of June 27th as the day of the latest song removal round for Taiko arcades, today we're also informed that said day will also mark a more positive change to the Taiko scene: the introduction of the AI Battle Performance (AIバトル演奏), Green Version's signature game mode!

Courtesy of Etou, today we also have a general description of this game setting, aimed to polish the players' drum-hitting skills.

First Video: Bokura no Mae ni Michi wa Aru

Bokura no Mae ni Michi wa Aru

From the singer of Love Fantasy comes the latest DLC-debut track for the Nintendo Switch Taiko game, featured here one day after its release! (...sorry about that)

While you gawk at the song's 8-star Oni challenge video from Youtube, we want to thank chatbox user Araden for the signalation of this song's Oni gameplay being already leaked... weeks ago, in fact! For the First Video post format, however, we just stick to video links that can be easily embed for posting means, so we did not post about the video up until the official Nintendo Switch debut.

plus Lokamp forgot to embed that link in the latest NSwitch leaks feature, sooooooo

List of Title Parts in Taiko no Tatsujin (Green Version)

From Momoiro Version 2.04 onwards, arcade Banapassport players are able to set titles for their personal nickname either with one of the titles previously unlocked by doing specific tasks or by creating a new one by scratch by using specific title parts.

These title parts are basically divided into two different groups: nouns and phrases ('Group A') and symbols or connectives ('Group B'). Players can use up to 2 words from Group A and a symbol/connective from Group B to construct a custom title, following the scheme A-B-A. Any spot of said scheme can be left blank and the slots for Group A words can be filled with the same word.

While all the units from Group B are unlocked by default, players have to get the title parts from Group A through the rewards shop. Certain Group A parts can be unlocked only by achieving specific goals just like regular titles, whose unlocking requirements are explained into White Version's unlock page.

List of Titles in Taiko no Tatsujin (Green Version)

The title stem was introduced by a firmware update in Taiko 0, and gives players with access to Banapassports nicknames to put beside their usernames while they play, as a mark of their in-game achievements, much like in other rhythm games with user profiles. The titles can be interchanged in Donder Hiroba when you have obtained them, and the one currently selected will display on the arcade screen wherever the player name is. Some titles unlock hidden content like songs and costumes.

It is possible to get more than one title in a go by overlapping the conditions for unlocking them. In addition, for newer players, Don Points (DP) will also be given out for titles they get (until Red Version).

Almost all the titles from the Blue Version are available on Green ver. as well, with the addition of new title unlocks. Once again, titles are not ordered under a numerical order.

Titles are listed below, translated into English wherever possible.

Taiko no Tatsujin Green Version: Rewards Shop

Originated from Momoiro Version, the Rewards Shop allows Banapassport players to unlock new elements for the arcade play (namely, customization avatar elements and songs) that are not unlockable through the unlocking of selective avatar titles. Previously a service which was exclusive to the Donder Hiroba platform, the Rewards Shop functionalities have been reworked from Yellow Version, disbanding the former system based on the Don Point/Shopping Point currency and dividing its catalog into two main different outlets, each using their own currency.

Together with the main Rewards Shop alternatives, the service is also supporting other theme-based outlets that are available for a limited time (like for the case of collaboration events and such), which also refer to one of the two currencies used in the main RS sections.

Taiko no Tatsujin Green Version unlock list

All unlockables are limited to Banapassport users only.

Sonority Scouts - Paying Respect to Groovy Tenkaichi Offenders

Not even 5 months since the Arcaea collaboration and Taito's Groove Coaster series is back at it again with the Tenkaichi-friendly song exporting action! This time around, the beneficiary is the latest home console game in Neowiz MUCA's DjMax series, DJMAX RESPECT.

Alongside Got more raves and Ouroboros -twin stroke of the end-, eight more songs were ported to the game as a result, with some DJMAX crossovers heading to Taito's music series and a GC-inspired skin, which can be seen in action from this official DLC video trailer.

Song of the Week! 1 June 2019

Barring really specific exceptions (namely, YMCK), we've not taken a habit out of having song series showcases about recurring popular artists/units in the pop-culture licensed scenario, after the scares we've had on our past Anime features.

That, however, doesn't stop us from eventually talk about them under these lines either!

First Video: AC0 Green V3.05's New Songs (Part 2)

This time around, the role of the 'weekend warriors' has been taken by a couple of licensed picks, both sporting a 5* Oni chart like many others. Eve's Dramaturgy, however, can enjoy the high ground given by its extra Ura mode, for a notechart that can be best described as a note-light equal to Sugar Song to Bitter Step, from the same genre classification.
