Posted by: Nico on 21:16 CST :: 3/31/2019
So yeah, after 1.01 graced us at the tail end of February, it looks like we're kicking into high gear as the start of April brings us another patch, this one dropped without a teaser to start: I suppose that could be a trend? In any case, looking at the patch notes, here's the summary:
Zephyr / Tatsh
Ecstatic Vivace / Last Note.
Loser / Kenshi Yonezu (Cover) [NOTE: Exclusive to Japanese release]
Fly High (FULL VERSION) / Dreamcatcher
Time for the Moon Night / GFriend
You & I / Dreamcatcher
Dura / Daddy Yankee [NOTE: Exclusive Central/Latin American territories]
Can Can / BeautifulDay
Looks like the focus on new songs meant they didn't add a new Quest batch, almost like this was a bonus. Anyway, some notes on the songs:
-The addition of the two new K-Pops finally breaks us out of the stuff revealed but not released.
-Zephyr is a spiritual successor to Xepher, much like B2 was to Bleed.
-Yep, time for some area exclusives again, with Latin America finally getting some more love, this time with a song that has actually been an international modest hit. Now I'm even more jealous than past times! Japan's getting a pretty big one too, a sleeper hit boosted by, of all things, a car commercial in 2018 along with the overall success the original artist, Kenshi Yonezu, had with his career after the song's release.
-Ecstatic Vivace is also known as Uchouten Vivace.
-It can't be a coincidence that Radetzky Can Can was revived on the same mix as a new rendition was added...
Check out the full patch notes < here >, including difficulties, and may you have an awesome April!

I completely gave up on April Fool's, but Nico came in and did a quick thing. So we've now officially never missed a year.

Pump it Up also did an official April Fools this year, putting up joke charts for Mamamoo's Yes I Am (a single chart loaded to the brim with stair streams) and T-ara's Little Apple (a double combination of Hot Issue and Superman's most evil chart). These were displayed in what I believe was StepEdit's testing environment, which resembles Fiesta/Fiesta EX.
The fact that they were licensed songs hints that maybe they're really coming to XX eventually, though that they were pulled the day after could indicate that it was a temporary leave on (or getting away with not) having to deal with licensing maybe?

I could totally see a Xepher-like song show up on Pump someday. It's already amazing that we got anything Tatsh at all.
If the next Tatsh song on Pump were Zenius -II- Mother, the entire IIDX community would collectively shart their pants

I'd say no. They may have just asked for permission to use the songs for a single day.
