Twitter Snippets (31 December 2019) - Deleting the Old Year with a New Surprise Addition

From the composer that brought us the BMS sensation Altale comes 2020's very first new Original, one melody that won't waste any introductory time and will be readily available on Japanese Green Ver. arcades from tomorrow. 

Once again, happy new year!

Feature: 2019 - The Year in Hindsight

It's the last day of the year, which means it's the prime time to have our usual talk on how the Taiko no Tatsujin franchise has fared in the latest 365-ish-days venue! Once again, we'll be picking up the end-2018 Feature format and review the biggest steps into 3-months intervals, with Lokamp chiming in for his personal ups and down on the series' whereabouts.

Bruise up your shoes, as it's time for a memory-lane stroll once more...

Say with me now...

Twitter Snippets (21 December 2019) - A World-Ending Extension

Following suit from t+pazolite's reveal of a few days back, another Taiko soing is getting an extension through a Comiket 97 album release!

This time around, the artist in question is the nicknamed BlackY, which will feature his Taiko debut piece ARMAGEΔDON in three different flavors: the game cut, an extended version and a remix from haru_naba of Taiko x CreoFUGA and Bemani fame.

First Video: Monochrome Voice

モノクロボイス/cosMo@暴走P feat.初音ミク・GUMI

With an perfect antonym for a title, the exact same talent lineup and referential phrases in the composition, Monochrome Voice is the direct, negative sequel to the AI Battle Performance unlockable Colorful Voice. For the last song cosMo@BousouP has released an accompanying MV since the release, showing the backstory of a sister/nun (Miku) with a passion to become an idol to spread her songs of salvation and roping a ordinary schoolgirl (GUMI) into her plans along the way. We await further news on how this new composition falls into the narrative.

The notechart difficulty spread is also similar to Colorful Voice, with the Ura Oni being the intended full-scale carnage while regular Oni stayed as a toned down interim challenge.

Note for title hunters: Full Combo titles are "'Destroy! Everything!'" (「『滅セヨ!スベテヲ!』」) for regular Oni and Achromatic Singing Voice (無彩色の歌声) for Ura Oni.
