If you weren’t paying attention during the whole Switch presentation last night you might have missed the announcement that Bandai Namco is making a Taiko Drum Master game for Switch. Or you might not have realized it because they didn’t announce it during the presentation.
Bandai Namco sent out an email shortly after the event announcing Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2 was coming to Switch. Tucked away neatly at the end of that sentence in the header above were a couple other titles that actually weren’t mentioned anywhere else. One of them being Taiko Drum Master. If you’ve never seen a Taiko game in action check out the video below.
The company didn’t mention it anywhere else. I’ve reached out to them to see if we can get any more information, but that’s exciting news. How exactly will this game work? On the PS2 it used a peripheral shaped like the famous Japanese instruments. Will you just use the JoyCon’s or will they be releasing a peripheral for this system? Hopefully we’ll find out more information soon.
