Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival Hits Switch this September/October

Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival, the latest in the popular but off-the-wall rhythm drum game series, is just a few months away from a Nintendo Switch release.

We had a ridiculous amount of fun with Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum n Fun, so we’re looking forward to this new entry in the series. It sports 76 tracks and, wielding just the Switch Joy Cons, you can drum like a pro. Admittedly, most of these tracks are Japanese in origin, so don’t count on slapping away to Never Gonna Give You Up, but it should be fun.

Or if you really want to go all out, you can play with a plastic drum accessory (think a slightly classier version of Donkey Konga). That’s why the game’s set to come in two flavours, the regular edition and the Taiko Drum Set edition with drumkit.

You can tackle the tracks in regular or story mode and, regardless of whether you splurge for the drums, you can subscribe to the Taiko Music Pass for access to a massive 500 other tracks, culled from previous games.

So when can you get your hands on this drum-em-up? That depends on where you are. In a flashback to the days of staggered releases, it’s set to hit European Nintendo Switches this October 14th. If you’re in the USA, on the other hand, you can get your hands on it a little earlier, this September 23rd. And Asia? It’ll arrive there on September 22nd.

The Switch isn’t region-locked, so there’s nothing to stop you getting an import copy if you’re in Europe, but if you’re not a hardcore Taiko no Tatsujin fan, maybe you can live with waiting a month. Either way, you’ll be able to show off your drumming skills with Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival later this year.
