First Video: Taiko Switch in Action!



Wonder of all wonders, we have some video footage from a gameplay session in the next console Taiko title, months ahead of its release! Courtesy of Taiwanese website 4Gamers, here's a Futsuu play session on Furi-furi♪Nori-nori♪ (フリフリ♪ノリノリ♪), the Taiko Swich game's theme song.

This time around, the layout choice is a blend of both the arcade visual style and the former Wii U layout titles, with Don-chan's animations being based on a small number of frames and a result screen jingle that is more akin to the Wii times. And look, the drum siblings Calcutta and Yomogimaru have finally a new chance to shine as Fever dancers!

Thanks to user Nabix from the Taiko no Tatsujin Discord group for the find!

Namco Taiko Blog (May 18 2018): One Post in a Blue Moon for Blue ver. - Blue ver. June Version Update


...oh so by "stopping weekly updates", it means the official Taiko no Tatsujin blog is going to be downgraded to monthly at best now. Okay, I will adjust my expectations accordingly then...

But let's not give flak to the new person-in-charge for the blog: Number 11 (11号). He/she/(other) is bringing us long-awaited update news for the Blue ver. arcade firmware coming June 1 2018. Well, only part of it, but some nonetheless.

Twitter Snippets (May 17 2018): Asobi Store Special Offer for the Nintendo Switch Version

This version comes with an additional original carrying pouch (オリジナルキャリングポーチ) for your Switch console on top of the base game and the Gold Don-chan early purchase bonus.

[NSwitch] - Confirming More Language Versions, Why Don't We

Thanks again to Spotty for relaying through the chatbox, we are now aware that Taiko no Tatsujin Nintendo Switch Version is also getting a Korean/Hangul version.

No, we don't have staff that can actually read the official press release by Bandai Namco Entertainment of Korea, but from what we can gather from the spotty appearances of numerals and English words, we are getting pretty much the same package as the Japanese and (traditional) Chinese versions, including the July 19 release date and mentions of Jump Up, Super Star, Splatoon 2 (Medley) and We Are as songs (maybe).

For due diligence we also immediately checked the Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia's Facebook page and YouTube channel, but there is nothing substantive (read: English version) there so far.

[NSwitch] - Taiko Switch's Chinese Version Confirmed


The surge of news doesn't stop with the earlier-documented website update for today, as it appears that Chinese Switch owners will be able to enjoy yet another game of the Taiko series in their own language!

Coming from the Taiwan subsidiary of Bandai Namco, it was announced that a custom version of the game for the Greater Asia nations will be released in the same day of the 'regular' Japanese version, with the base game being fully translated in traditional Chinese.
