Back in March, we reported on the reveal of Taiko: Drum Master - known as Taiko no Tatsujin in Japan - a rhythm-action game featuring tunes from both Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Odyssey, and now Bandai Namco has unveiled the special Drum Controller that will accompany it.

The controller, based on a traditional Japanese taiko drum, comes with two sticks and a built-in stand - and even comes with a drinks holder (because playing the drums can be thirsty work). Right now, just like the game itself, the Taiko Drum Controller is currently a Japan-only release. We're still hoping it might make its way to our shores, even if those hopes are slim at best.

What do you make of the new controller for Taiko: Drum Master? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below...
