Taiko no Tatsujin - Nintendo Switch Version!

Earlier in the day, we echoed back the random findings from Japanese wiki wikihouse about the one Taiko game we've been teased from last year's beginning. With the recently-broadcast Nintendo Direct live recording, the Japanese run has finally shown that yes, there's indeed a Taiko no Tatsujin game in the works for the Switch and yes, it's coming this very year!

Feature-wise, the video reveals that the Switch's trademark Joycon peripheral's sides can be detached and used as air-Bachi sticks to play as one of its control schemes! Other aspects that have been slightly touched upon in the Taiko segment are the returning multiplayer and a new minigame-based mode to boot.

Coming to the song selection, only four tracks have been revealed thus far: series-recurring Carmen Prelude and Natsu Matsuri as well as two Game Music tracks from recent Nintendo games: a short version of Super Mario Odyssey's Jump Up, Super Star! and a Splatoon 2 Medley (the same one that Blue Version is getting in a few days for its launch).

No precise release date yet, as we've been given a generic Summer 2018 placeholder. Stay tuned!


  1. Why the old 2D Don chan model tho? :c

  2. I hope it will support the Taiko controller of the Wii if that is somehow possible.

  3. thanks to region freeness, this is the first taiko in many years that will be compatible with a US Nintendo console. PRAISE KIMISHIMA
