You may remember a special I did last week and talked about why Taiko Drum Master (or Taiko no Tatsujin ) series deserves a second chance on the US market as we have not seen any release here since the original drum master on PlayStation 2 , Well, apparently someone at Bandai Namco has been listening because we got two games this fall .
The publisher announced just before the weekend that Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session will be released for PlayStation 4; during Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum n & # 39; Fun ! will debut on Nintendo Switch. Both games will be released on November 2nd. Unfortunately, Bandai Namco does not seem to be playing the drum controllers, but diehard fans can always import them and enjoy those games to the fullest. (The default settings are not bad either, mind you.)
The above trailer gives you a good idea of what you can expect from these games. You can play one or two players in main mode and challenge them through a series of mini-games, making it an indispensable party favorite.
Both games will also feature great soundtrack selections. The switch version of Tatsujin features classic hits and dance favorites as well as Nintendo favorites like the Splatoon 2 theme and "Jump Up Super Star!" Of Super Mario Odyssey
The PS4 version of Tatsujin will naturally also have some good pieces, including Favorites Hatsune Miku, Touhou Project and Arcade Series such as Ridge Racer and Tekken . Last but not least, some Disney tracks from Zootopia and Frozen are also being recorded, although it is not known whether they are the US versions or the Japanese versions currently in the game are. We will surely find it later.
The game also offers customization options, as you can dress up your drum character in a range of costumes. Switch owners will love the Nintendo costumes and characters that are available. I mean, when did you last decorate your character like Link from The Legend of Zelda ? Yes, a drum can carry a sword.
It's exciting to see that these games get a chance in the US market ̵
