Namco Taiko Blog (2021/09/21): Showdown on 'Rona Check: Important Donder! World Championship 2021 Update

...sigh, why does this have to surface on the day of cakes

Skipping the chit-chat, the Donder! World Championship 2021 tournament will have to be postponed to at least 2022 due to the unsubsiding effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This perhaps comes to little surprise, as no fewer than 19 regions in Japan are still under emergency declaration, and restrictions on operating arcade centers and holding mass-gathering events are also in effect across the world. The tournament was planned on the assumption that the situation would improve by October 2021, but that has not happened.

While the tournament proceeding suffered, the Taiko Team is not going to let that stop Donders from getting access to the set-piece tracks. Aside from the three tracks that are already released, the other nine will still be released periodically between November 2021 through March 2022:
  • アンリミテッドゲームズ Unlimited Games
  • 仮想現実のテレスコープ Kasou-genjitsu no Telescope
  • Ko
  • 晨星ト鵺 Shinsei to Nue
  • 燃えよサファイア Moeyo Sapphire
  • Challengers
  • Hello, Mr.JOKER
  • Player’s High
  • punk bastards

Desperate! 120-Frames Hit!

Namco Taiko Blog (September 17th, 2021) - Taiko de Time Travel pt.7: 60's Showa Anime


One day after its original posting date, but technical/schedule issues in our real-life commitments are not able to stop us! Especially when a certain anthro drum meme has just clawed its way into having its own Namco Original song, ... at long last!!

First Video: A Seasonal Rewards Shop of Ranking Dojo Top Dogs

It took almost an entire day for HQ rips of the latest Ranking Dojo boss tracks, but at long last here they are! The Kurouto and Meijin coursed both end with tracks from a couple of returning artist ensembles: the lone-ranger pianist Azu♪ with another of his Dragon tracks and the denpa-versed duo that is joined by Marumoko (Twitter) for a muscle-based challenge... in more ways thaqn one!

Shying away from the elements, the latest in the Dragon songs is about time and as such, select portions will have players freeze in suspension of that one giant Kat note hit to time just right in an otherwise 1/16-predominant romp. Definitely more an all-around lively stroll is the latest YumaMizo/Ohsera job of many a hybrid cluster combination and final surprises to boot.

At last, here we are with the most anticipated artist-debut piece of the day! It's also featured as the 2021 Choujin course's final track to face.

Laur from HARDCORE TANO*C starts his Taiko journey with a Japanese piece with quirky -core bursts all throughout, resulting in turno into an Oni chart that could be better framed as 2021's take on the DEBSTEP! From slow-flowing notes of many a tempo shift to even more cluster tempo hybrids, this song has got your 'getting-on-your-toes' bases covered all throughout its playtime!

Indeed, the final seat of the heated Ranking Dojo's Tatsujin course for this year is for none other than t+pazolite's latest original piece! Parroting the mojo of another peculiar boss song of his from foreign pastures, the horrors won't end face-value at the first top-starred chart on display...

If the Oni mode's Venomous-styled high-BPM, simple-cluster-mashing challenge looks already a bit of a romp to go through, the sheer amound of notes and devilish charting trickery of the Ranking-Dojo-sitting Ura Oni is sure to make shudder even the most seasoned of players with a speed-demanding performance that doesn't shy away from Don-based nightmares to face!

★   ★   ★

And since these two additions are on back-to-back days, let's also check out Dry Flower added to Nintendo Switch Version on the same post! At only 74 BPM, the chill but 24th-focused swing base was last seen in Hilcrhyme's Shunkashuutou.
