    Great, now my play time is going to be at least two times bigger than previous games. This game is addictive.

    A Mappy game? Sweet!

      No it looks like the “Mappy’s March” is a song in the virtual taiko machine.  I’m probably forgetting but what is ‘Mappy’?

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    So both Idolmaster rhythm game elements AND Taiko? Yessssss

  • Lazulis

    Best minigames. Ever.

    Yakuza playing Taiko??? This makes me wonder why they don’t just make one of the characters there working as a Taiko lol.^_^ It would be crazily funny there. Taiko Yakuza???

    A game within a game. Sweet.

    Careful with bringing in too many other faces. We don’t want a “Why the US can’t get non-OG Super Robot Wars” situation do we?

  • Pipiskin99

  • Derek
