Twitter Snippets (8 November 2017) - ???Long Version Time???

In a similar way to how the long version of Shiny Kung-fu Revival has been (subsequently) revealed 2 years ago (link), it appears that t+pazolite's future albums are going to have some more of his rhythm game music magic on them!

The picture concerning his next solo album, scheduled to a Winter 2017 release, has quite the tell that Taiko-rooted tracks might show up once again, with a track marked as !!!?????!!! slated for a formal reveal on November 20th. This, of course, points out to the coming of a certain song, but will it be the regular cut or a longer version? And will some of his other songs on Bandai Namco grounds make their appearance as well?!?

First Video: Groovy Duel

 Groovy Duel (3/5/7/10; 655 notes on Oni)
Today's Yellow Version update has come, and so is the Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt collaboration song. Tacked with a 10-star rating, this Oni feels like the lesser cousin of No Gravity with its low note count and multiple rhythm changes, although being shaped to be a more easy-to-clear task than many other modern 10-star-rating tracks before it. Expect an update to our former SotW feature about the song coming soon!

Here are some other notices concerning the arcade update that deserve a brief mention:
  • Oodain's Oni mode has been demoted to an 8-star rating, while its Futsuu mode is now rated as a 7*;
  • The blurred-out songs of the Challenge! 1400 Drumrolls!! Dojo Ranking Gaiden trial from last week's preview picture turned out to be respectively Honey Heartbeat ~10 Stars Mix~ and Necrofantasia ~Arr. Demetori;
  • General Asia's Yellow Version arcades have also been updated today with Oodain and the three new Dojo Ranking Gaiden courses. Groovy Duel, however, is not included and no song deletion notices have been issued as of now (Source).
