Namco Taiko Blog (19 January 2018) - Taiko no Tatsujin Blue Version's Official Reveal!

After yesterday's dreary news about some more DLC discontinuation, it's finally time to announce the next big arcade firmware that will be succeeding Yellow Version in a few months!

Today's blog entry carries only said official announcement, coupled with the splash screen art that is displayed above. With Taiko sibling Katsu busy floating around in the background, who is the sword-wielding, totally-not-Maple-from-V-Version lady that shares the foreground space with Don, and what this (and that menacing dragon in the background) means for the newcoming arcade firmware's play modes?

The End of an Era: Taiko no Tatsujin Portable 1/2's DLC Discontinuation


Freely-downloadable tracks for the PSP's first two Taiko no Tatsujin Portable titles have been openly shared with its players for a cumulative period of time that surpasses the decade, although it looks like this situation isn't going to last any longer.

The two notices above, available in the two games' respective websites, promptly inform that the DLC tracks will be removed from the official websites after January 31st. If you want to add the 40-or-so songs to your games before they're gone for good, you can check out one of our earliest guides on this blog, by following this link.

Twitter Snippets (17 January 2018) - Taiko x Ososmatsu-san Keychains

The Taiko x Osomatsu-san collaboration has yet to come, but that won't stop the beginning of some early crane game merchandise plans! As reported in the tweet above, Banpresto has already started the distribution of the six Taiko-themed keychains whose looks can also be appreciated in the coming arcade collaboration with the music game series.

Namco Taiko Blog (17 January 2018) - Yellow Version's Special Goods Campaign

With the official Taiko blog entries becoming more and more sparse in number, it may happen that we miss some of the newly-made posts on not-Thursdays and for that we want to apologize in advance...

Now that this notice is out of the way, let's talk about the latest Yellow Version-related campaign.
