[RANDOM] - Chronicles of a Forgotten April Fools Stunt


While we managed to catch an admirable amount of April Fools pranks in one of our most recent Sonority Scouts features, it may happen that some of those tricky expedients may fall off our radars, mainly due to either poor visual/video documentation or us being unaware of the joke itself (or both).

For this year, one of these misreported pranks comes from Synchronica, which got a full digression in a dedicated blog entry of the Synchronica Lab.

Taiko no Tatsujin Namco Original Playlist Adds 4 (April 18 2017)

Okay, okay, I have to check back whether this was featured in the prominent social media outlets back on April 18 2017, and it was not (phew that would have been embarrassing on our part). Apparently Taiko Team will be having us put on standing duty on the main Yellow ver. site once every month or so now?

*cough* Anyway, the whole rant-y opening is to highlight that the Namco Original playlist has since added four new videos featuring full versions of songs:
Turquoise Tachometer
Negai wa Esperanto
UNDEAD HEART (Ikari no Warriors) (with official lyrics)
Sayonara Varya (with official lyrics)
Ryu to Kokuen no Himegimi (with official lyrics)
Gunslinger Cinderella (with official lyrics)
≠MM (with official lyrics...?)
Sotsu Omeshiki Full (with official lyrics)

Playlist's first open announcement

Song of the Week! 29 April 2017

Since the inception of the movie Frozen, the quota of songs coming from English-speaking countries in Taiko has seen a small bump thanks to the porting of popular tracks from the most recent animated Disney movies.

While this very week has seen the introduction of a Japanese song cover from the recently-released Moana, let's take one slight step backwards for today's feature...

Taiko Plus - Fighting Idols Collab and End-of-April GTH Additions

A double treat for both Android and iOS Taiko players was revealed right before the Taiko Team having their latest hiatus period, as the monthly Gakkyoku Tori Houdai new song supply is coupled with a mini collaboration campaign, of which we're talking about after the jump.

Sonority Scouts - Hakurei Shrine's Musical Troopers / 2017 Edition

With the very last blog entry before the Golden Week hiatus being about the exclusive content that is featured in the promo Yellow Version builds being shipped at the yearly Hakurei Shrine Reitasai convention, it's time -once again- to wonder just what the other music series competitors will pull out for the returning danmaku-fueled event.

Reach us out after the jump!

Twitter Snippets (27 April 2017) - Silence is Golden (Week)

By this point, we've got used to Bandai Namco-related media taking a break as the yearly Golden Week celebrations approach, and 2017 is no exception.

From this Friday until May 7th, all Taiko Team-related activities (Twitter handle, blog entries and such) will be stopped for the nationwide celebration, only to be resuming from the following Monday onward.

Namco Taiko Blog (27 April 2017) - Cirno Project @ Reitasai 2017

Today's weekly blog entry is mainly made out of a visual reminder of the IOSYS Touhou Project arrange collaboration coming to the 14th Reitasai's promo Taiko no Tatsujin builds, alongside the other previously-released arrange songs. Also, we now happen to know what the song's official title is going to be: Cirno's Perfect Math Class ⑨ Anniversary Edition (チルノのパーフェクトさんすう教室 ⑨周年バージョン).

Once again, we remind you that this song's outing is currently scheduled to public Taiko (and Synchronica) arcades as well, set to an unspecified future date.
