Another future upgrade for Taiko 0

Last year a website put up promotional posters for the HD Taiko three months before any official announcement from Namco. And once again, that website has once again opened reservations for an upgraded cabinet! (click here to see details). Let's see what's new.

1) This upgrade kit will be released on late July 2012, probably after Taiko 3DS's release (don't be tricked by the other date; May 18th is the deadline for preordering the kit!).

2) It looks like this new upgrade is not software-only like the others, since the price is quite high: 278,000 Yen, the actual cost for a brand new Taiko 14 arcade! Which means....another cabinet replacement?

3) According to the description, this upgrade will bring new songs, new modes and a ...camera? That's right: even Taiko will now have a camera like most of Namco's cabinets! It's probably just used either to goof around or add a profile picture to your Banapassport profile though.

Credits to crystalsuicune for the find!

Song of the Week! 28 April 2012


Last year we dedicated one spot here for everyone's favorite autobot, Mekadon, and two of the songs that feature him (well, Future Lab is kind of a vague connection but whatever). He has another two theme songs, both of them being obscure and present in only one game each.

Namco Taiko Blog (26 April 2012) - Taiko 3DS songlist

Today's blog update is all about Taiko no Tatsujin: Chibi Dragon to Fushigi na Orb. Though, with everything already covered in other gaming sites and even the official site a week beforehand, there's nothing new to be offered in this blog post, just a recap of all the songs we know to be in the game so far minus Tales of the Abyss and Kiseki. To see the current Taiko 3DS songlist click here.

Next week's break day for Japan, so no blog updates. The next one will be on May 10th so stay tuned!

Feature: Deathstream 101 - Semester II


Okay class! How many of you are back for more? Let's skip the introductions and move on with our next lecture on deathstreams, since there are definitely lots of other problem areas that are much shorter than the first six we covered in the first class. In case you missed the class, you can view it here. Now, let's begin.

Random: Dodon ga Eagle



Don't know him? This player, named 'イーグル (eagle)' made a small name for himself by pretending the Taiko arcade is the world's most expensive jukebox. Instead of attempting Dodon ga Don Ura seriously like most players do, just check out him fooling around with the song playing in the back.

Though, I still think there's a skilled player underneath the crazy exterior.

Taiko no Tatsujin 3DS first trailer and tons of screenshots



Coming from the Nintendo Direct feed detailing many of Nintendo's plans for the next few months, including Pokemon Black/White 2, New Super Mario Bros 2, 3DS firmware updates, and trailers for many announced games, including Taiko no Tatsujin 3DS of course!

It's a lot less fluidly animated than Taiko 0, but the art style is definitely the new one. Costumes return as usual, albeit with a crazy size thing going on there. 4 way multiplayer and a little story footage is in here too!

The 10000 point bonus on reaching 100 combo is present, meaning scoring system is the new one.

And more screenshots of the menu and play mode and story mode too. See them all below!



 


From the screenshots one more J-Pop song is revealed, another old favorite, Kiseki, which has seemingly become an evergreen song on Taiko together with things like Natsu Matsuri.

Song of the Week! 21 April 2012

 

This is a request from Ventus, one of our readers from chat, and a fan of Japanese pop rock band Ikimono Gakari (いきものがかり), which has many songs in Taiko in both J-Pop and Anime. Guess what song we're going to review.
