Non-stop arrange play

Wow really? We've gone two years with the definition of 'arrange play' being in the glossary but never shown any video of it on the blog itself? Well, I'm pretty sure a lot of you have seen it done before at least once, but if you have not seen arrange play before, here are some videos. Basically, arrange play is doing the song as usual, but inserting imaginary notes in between note clusters by yourself. Test your cognitive skills!

Most of the very first non-stop arrange play videos on Youtube are done by one 'okayasu7777', who's done almost everything you can think of on the later PS2 games.

Non-stop arrange of Taberuna 2000. Slipping notes in between the big dons is not easy, and very easy to slip up and miss.

And this one on the arcade by a slightly more entertaining person. Lion Ura on Taiko 0. Look at his hands move!

And this one for White Rose Insanity Ura, using thumbs to perform the non-stop arrange, even at the increased scroll speed!

Taiko no Tatsujin Wii: Chogouka-Ban song list

Taiko no Tatsujin Wii Chogouka-Ban

This compilation (lit. Taiko no Tatsujin Wii: Super Deluxe Edition) is the fifth Taiko no Tatsujin game to be published for the Nintendo Wii and is released on November 2012. Despite newer consoles switching over to the third graphical interface of the HD arcade (such as Taiko 3DS), this Wii Taiko sticks stubbornly to the old interface, with one minor change: Don-chan's design is the new one. Various other things from the old format are kept; there's no option to stack multiple game modifiers together and still no mention of drumroll count on the results screen. Three features did make it through however, and that are the new scoring system, Random note modifiers Kimagure and Detarame, and the Kusudama Note replacing the Yam Note.

It bears a striking resemblance to its prequel Ketteiban in terms of gameplay modes. Fuuga and Mirai, the wind and lightning gods from the story mode of the previous game, are back for another round of lessons in their Taiko Classroom. Tsumamikui Ensou, a.k.a Guide Mode is also back, so players can still pause and practice tough bits of all the songs they want to play. Don-chan's mail and costumes are still stored in a space called Don-chan no Takaramono (Don-chan's Treasures) like in Ketteiban, and there are over 30 costumes, all of them from the new arcade. One new game mode in this is a collection of over 30 minigames, called Shunkan Soukai! Don-chan Sawagi (瞬間爽快!どんちゃん騒ぎ) which includes all-new minigames as well as classics from Taiko Wii 3 and the PS2 Taiko games, presented in multiple-game, quickfire fashion rather than full minigames.

It is said to have 100 songs in the promotional material, but there are actually 105 songs on the disc, putting it side by side with Ketteiban as the largest non-download songlist. Among them are lots of old favorites being brought back and mixed in with almost the rest of the Taiko 0 and 0.5 arcade songs that aren't already on a console version. Four Namco Original series are completely filled in this songlist (discounting future Rose and SORA songs), making for an epic package of songs and there are surprises even in the other genres; the Variety genre alone has 3 Uras to itself, something that has not happened before on any console Taiko.
