taikov2.jpgSeven islands and eight J-Pop tracks are part of Taiko no Tatsujin DS: 7-tsu no Shima no Daibouken, which comes out in Japan this week. Some of you might be eager to import it because of the influx of mascot characters joining Wada-Don. I previously mentioned Doraemon, Oshiri Kaji Mushi and the [email protected] will be part of this mix. The Soulcalibur II theme “Brave Swords, Braver Soul” too, but I don’t think a cute version of Nightmare will be dancing in the background.


In case you were thinking about importing the game since it’s coming out this week I thought it might be helpful for the J-Pop uninitiated to have an idea of what songs are in the game. Listen closely and see the music videos below.



Peach (Ai Otsuka)



Ai Uta (GReeeeN)



Age Age Every Knight (DJ Ozma)



Lifetime Respect – Onna Hen – (RSP)



Ikenai Taiyou (Orange Range)



Tentai Kansoku (Bump of Chicken)



Love So Sweet (Arashi)



Linda Linda (The Blue Hearts)
