Namco Taiko Blog (31 October 2019) - A Word on Blue Version's Ranking Dojo Video Removal

The banner for a formerly-active arcade firmware version is up, as today's official Taiko blog entry is related to Blue Version's Ranking Dojo; more specifically, it's about its official final-results video reel... and why it was pulled out from the Bandai Namco channel, on Youtube.

For the listing of high-ranking players during each of the video reel's separate sections by ranks, all names are used to be displayed in a pure alphabetical order... one factoid that has been exploited by a group of malicious players who doxed another person's sensible data by carefully group-ranking at a certain stage and lining their player names on the video in such a way that the 8-digit serieal number of the victim could be easily and sequencially readable.

After the incident's identification, the ranking video was removed on October 10th earlier this month, only coming out today with the No.11 intern as the writer for today's blog entry. While the release of congratulatory video reels for Ranking Dojo Taiko players was started from the development team as an entertaining side activity for the fans made with no intention to harm anyone, this episode will be taken in high consideration for the future, meaning that there are good chances Blue Version's Ranking Dojo final results video may as well be the last one of its kind... or perhaps will see its structuring revised for similar future avenues.

Song of the Week! 26 October 2019

This week's Namco Original on our spotlight has seen the release of its extended version on this very day! See you after the jump to find out which tune is it.

First Video: Nyanyanya

Nyanyanya Risshuu feat. Choco
にゃーにゃーにゃー/立秋 feat.ちょこ

Arguably a propaganda piece for the cat people of the world, the new addition spots a 12th-focused base at the high speed of 222 BPM (lel very funny) as the main challenge. 24th are mixed in but not too abundant.

Twitter Snippets (October 25 2019): Why Did It Have To Be Cats?

The pair behind Marukute Hayakute Susamajii Rhythm returns in weekend warrior fashion with a pick feeling a tad too feline. Coming to AC0 tomorrow (October 26).

Nyanyanya Risshuu feat. Choco
にゃーにゃーにゃー/立秋 feat.ちょこ
Key: red = series debut; blue = console debut

First Video: Undying Legend

Undying Legend

Avid Taiko no Tatsujin players should remember there has been one song inclusion for every Soul Calibur game since II (not counting that Legend of Zelda Theme from Soul Calibur II). The latest in these inclusion averts the weird tradition to have the game name as the song title and the actual music title as the subtitle. This is also the hardest Soul Calibur song in Taiko so far with long streams and sprinkled 24th four-hits mixed with 16ths.

Named "Undying Legend", the tune aptly quotes phrases from New Legend from Soul Calibur III. While that song is also in Taiko no Tatsujin (last seen 3DS3), the Oni notechart did not quote the prior song's.
