Twitter Snippets (27 July 2018) - Western Taiko Game Releases: Now It's Official!

The title says it all: the most recent Taiko console game releases are actually going to be officially released for the Western market! This claim comes from social feeds sent by different Bandai Namco branches (pictured above is a reveal tweet coming from the BN Europe branch; other branches such as UK and USA have also posted the very same notice).

Both the debut Taiko titles for the PS4 and Nintendo Switch are going to be released with the English names we already knew about from other General Asia releases or former data leaks: Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session! (PS4) and Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum 'n' Fun! (NSwitch). There's not that much to talk about how the games will be distributed as of now (or how much will they differ from the original JP versions), but the promo video embeded above showcasing the Anime song We Are! makes us believe that some of the Japanese licenses might be salvaged for the international versions (possibly the ones that are related to Bandai Namco-shared IPs for media handling, to the very least).

According to the tweet, both games are scheduled to be released on November 2nd, this year. Mark your calendars!


  1. Likely will skip since i know people won't buy this game
    Nobody bought it back in 2004 and likely people won't touch it now
    Plus i know they will bastardise the release with cringeful K-Tel like song covers of US pop hits which will date the release horribly
    And Bandai Namco is likely will not bring the Tatacon to the states and not give us Free DLC nor Gold Don-Chan

  2. Probably going to be horrible song list though.

  4. Waiting for a lot of uninspired and crap American songs...
