Sharing the same time frame as the last year, Jingle Bells No. 765 comes back as a limited-play song on Red Version arcades nationwide from December 10th to the end of this year.
And yes, the track will also be playable in General Asia Taiko arcades as well! But we'll have more on that in an upcoming Across Japan post.
