Twitter Snippets (16 April 2017) - !!!HARDCORE no Kokoroe Time!!!

The Taiko-related album news don't stop with City Connection/Clarice's 8-soundtracks project, as DJ Myosuke has topped last month's HARDCORE no Kokoroe long version announcement (link) with the reveal of a brand-new remix of the same track, by the hands of t+pazolite. Both the long and remix version of the artist's debut Namco Original will appear in his 5th album, coming out on April 29th.

Mirroring the general-music-gaming mood from the past announcement of the same album, Groove Coaster's MAD FREAKS is also getting a remixed version by the nicknamed 'The Wishmaster' (link).

Namco Taiko Blog (16 April 2018) - Taiko Blue Version's First Update

Three days after our jointed reportage of the iDOLISH7 collab/4Games feature post, we get an official notice on the Taiko no Tatsujin blog detailing what the next update is holding in the most anonymous and PR-corporative bland way as possible...

After the jump is a brief recap of the content spotlighted, included the first tweaks on Blue Version's Ranking Dojo mode.

Twitter Snippets (April 13 2018): Switch away from the Wada Brothers for the Switch Version (Addendum: 2018/04/15)

Thanks to simple1 from the chatbox for finding this tweet!

Magazine coverage for Taiko no Tatsujin Nintendo Switch Version is found, and here is a preliminary shot from it!

While the shot is too limited in quality to make out any actual song names, we can make out the gist for the new mechanics of Performing Character (演奏キャラクター). Before you play a song, you have the choice of alternate characters with special Performance Skills (演奏スキル) that tweaks the gameplay in various ways. With that you can make your drumming performance easier for you. Isn't that basically the modifier mechanics though...?

For now, the characters confirmed from the shot are:
  • Don-chan
  • Kat-chan
  • Calcutta=Dondi
  • Yomogimaru
  • Bachio Sensei (with the skill confirmed to be automatically differentiating Dons and Kats, i.e. Donko Mode in PSP2 or partly Support Lv.2 from PS4)
  • Wada Inu
  • Wada John
  • Chouchin Unagi
Addendum (2018/04/14): Additional textual reports from wikihouse, the magazine above should be the next issue of CoroCoro Comic, and from which also confirms more songs:
 前前前世 Zen Zen Zense
 ともに Tomo ni
 アローラ!! Alola!!
Addendum (2018/04/15): More songs confirmed by wikihouse commentors via the same CoroCoro Comics appearance:

PS Vita1 Update - Stopping the Layabout Life in Your DLC: Termination of Popular Song Pack 12


In an previously-unannounced move, the Popular Song Pack 12 (人気曲パック12) DLC for Taiko no Tatsujin V Version has ended its sale on the PlayStation Store front.

Evidently it is because of the Himouto! Umaru-chan opening theme, because the other songs in this pack are still individually sold at the taxed price of 162 yen price each. This is quite unlike the last time one song killed the continuation of a whole DLC pack (3DS2 Popular Songs Pack 4 likely with Kessen!!), but the new total price totals higher than the original pack price (540 yen tax incl.). Still, they will be here had you not bought it before.

In case you forget, here's the lineup of the pack again:

Popular Song Pack 12 (pack sale ended; other songs 162 yen each tax incl.)
かくしん的☆めたまるふぉ~ぜっ! Kakushinteki☆Metamarupho~se!
自力本願レボリューション Jiriki Hongan Revolution
   「暗殺教室」より Assassination Classroom
悲しき蒼穹を翔ける Kanashiki Soukyuu o Kakeru
   「ぐるみん」より Gurumin
深緋の心臓 -SCARLET HEART- Kokihi no Shinzou -SCARLET HEART-
   東方Project×NAMCO SOUNDS Touhou Project x NAMCO SOUNDS
