TAIKO NO TATSUJIN Is Making Its Way To The US…kinda.

The popular franchise Taiko no Tatsujin (otherwise known as Taiko: Drum Master here in the US) is making its way to the US! 

The game features a drum that you can play to the beat of some popular Japanese tunes. Slated to appear on the Nintendo Switch (but also to release on the Playstation 4) version is the theme to Splatoon 2 and tunes from the famous virtual star Hatsune Miko.

Players can use the controller buttons to simulate the drum beats and the rim shots. The Nintendo Switch version will allow use of the console’s Joy-Cons to “air drum” your way to victory!


Unfortunately, while the game will be releasing in November, plans to release the actual drum peripheral to the US has been denied. You can still get the from controller here and here

Here’s a trailer!
