Taiko no Tatsujin is coming in Feb courtesy of Namco


After successful stints on PS2, DS, PSP and Wii the single drum-bashing music game is coming to the App store! With Twitter functionality.

For those not aware of this series:


Symbols moving horizontally along a timeline show the player what to hit and when. Small Red symbols indicate that the face of the drum be hit (either the left or right hand side of the drum), and large Red symbols indicate that both sides of the drum face be hit at the same time. Small Blue symbols indicate that the drum should be hit on the rim, and large Blue symbols indicate that both sides of the drum rim be hit at the same time.

Anywho, looks like Scamco is employing their usual tactics with this one as with most of their wares this generation. The game will initially come with just 5 songs at launch, and undoubtedly DLC later.

This is actually one of my favourite games. The best part is I actually play taiko drums.

Love love love this game. It's one the very few arcade games I play (I don't really go arcade) and I always come home with sore arms.

I got this from Pocketgamer:


"Namco Networks has confirmed to us that it has no plans to release Taiko Drum Master for iPhone and iPod touch outside of Japan."
