Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun is playable at Gamescom this week, complete with the Drum Set. Take a look at some footage in the video below.

Amazon Germany has added in a listing for an exclusive Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun bundle. The retailer doesn’t have any information on what’s included at present, but it presumably includes the Taiko Drum Set.

Pre-orders for the bundle can be placed here. This one can be imported to the US, by the way.

Bandai Namco’s Southeast Asia branch has a video up for Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun showing off drumming tips and tricks. Check it out below.

Bandai Namco has passed along new information about Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun, including the game’s track list.

All tracks from the original Japanese version will appear in the west. That includes the mythical “Cha-La Head-Cha-La” from Dragon Ball Z, “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana (presented in Japanese), classical songs such as the “Turkish March” composed by Beethoven, and more.

A quick update on Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun!: Bandai Namco recently announced that the latest Taiko no Tatsujin game will be released in Europe and North America on November 2nd. However, a slight caveat is that the game will only be available on the Switch eShop in both regions, according to Gematsu. This comes as a bit of a surprise given that Bandai Namco recently shared the North American boxart for the game, implying that there would be a physical release. 


Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun premiered in Japan last week. For the period ending July 22, the title managed to sell 70,000 copies. Dengeki also reports a 50% sell-through rate.

This is actually one of the better debuts for a Taiko no Tatsujin game in quite some time. It beat out the last couple of 3DS entries, though it fell short of Taiko no Tatsujin Wii which sold 115,000 units in its first week.

Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun should continue to sell in the weeks and months ahead. These titles tend to be evergreen releases, with Taiko no Tatsujin Wii as one example going on to sell over 650,000 copies in the end.


Following today’s announcement of Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun for the west, Bandai Namco has shared the North American boxart. Get a look at the packaging image above.

Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun is coming to North America and Europe, Bandai Namco has announced. It’ll launch in both regions on November 2.

The rhythm game, which recently debuted in Japan, will allow players to use the Joy-Con as drumsticks. Motion-control play is also included “that uniquely replicates the popular arcade-style experience.”

Taiko Drum Master: Nintendo Switch Version! launched in Japan this week. Often as we see with games, datamining has started. There’s one interesting element in particular uncovered thus far.

Above is an English logo datamined for Taiko Drum Master: Nintendo Switch Version!, known as Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun. Of course, the same name was included in a recent Australian classification. At this point, many are expecting an official overseas release to be announced in the near future.
