Across Japan (June 23 2017): Adds and Minuses on Schedule

No automatic alt text available.

God Ray Same day as Japan
   「シンクロニカ」より Synchronica

And belatedly we also have official confirmation that the upcoming Yellow ver. song removals will be mirrored outside Japan too. ...that is the less-exciting part of keeping with the schedules.

Song of the Week! 24 June 2017


Summer is back once again, and we're here to honor once again (although a week later) a time-tested tradition for this Saturday corner: following up a new Taiko console game's reveal with one of its songs appearing under these lines.

It's also one of the few console debuts from the newly-revealed Taiko title for PS4, no less!

Session de Dodon ga Don Website Now Open!


One week after the teaser page's posting, the website has now officially opened its digital gates to Internet surfers from all corners of the Globe! There's nothing much to talk about it, however, as it mostly rehashes news bits we already reported in the past few days.

At this point, only the Song List and About pages are active, with the former showcasing all the song titles known thus far (with no additions of sorts) and the latter hosting sub-sessions dedicated to the game's signature modes: Guest Session (with mentions to the Doraemon-related content) and Ghost Session.

Click here to check out the website for yourselves!

Namco Taiko Blog (22 June 2017) - Behind the Notechart: Geki-un! Shichifuku Happy Crew



Notechart talk is back at the Taiko Team's official blog, but rather than making a new charter-focused feature post like in the past few instances of the previous months/years, a tangent of chart features is introduced instead, in which single songs' charting process is discussed by its own creator.

Today marks the beginning of this feature cycle, starting with the Yellow Version songs from the Summer Rewards Shop. Hear Marimo Institute talk about her work on the latest IOSYS original!

[RANDOM] - Not-Namco Idols with Namco Artists, Take 2


It happened 2 months ago and it's happening again: yet another NAMCO SOUNDS-related artist has been spotted on foreign grounds, as one of the Irorimidori (イロドリミドリ) tracks' composer.

This time around, the CHUNITHM series' in-house idol unit has employed the talent of the nick-named Jesahm (自営山) for the latest solo-idol song: Spicy Swingy Style, which is coming to stateside arcades tomorrow. The scoop comes from this tweet, which also includes a Youtube link for the full in-game version of the song.

Here in Taiko, Jesahm is better known as the composer of old-time Namco Original classics like Taiko Session ~Live Version~ as well as a few choice Classic arrangements (most notably Nocturne Op. 9-2).

Twitter Snippets (19 June 2017) - A Godly Crossover


One bit of news that has escaped our scope yesterday concerns the song-sharing relationship between the Taiko no Tatsujin and Synchronica series once more, this time around involving one of Synchronica's original boss songs coming to Taiko arcade grounds!

Previously announced in the latest Synchronica TV Youtube broadcast (link), kyo's God Ray will be appearing on Yellow Version at the end of this month, on June 30th. If you're curious to hear how the song sounds like, click here for a related Synchronica gameplay video.
