During last night's Japanese Nintendo Direct it was announced that Taiko: Drum Master - known as Taiko no Tatsujin in its homeland - is coming to the Nintendo Switch, complete with songs from Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2.

Two-player support is included thanks to the fact that instead of using a drum peripheral, you use the Joy-Con to drum - just like the recently-released Japanese exclusive Gal Metal. A range of wacky party games are also included.

The game launches this year in Japan. We'd love to see this released in the west, but the odds aren't great; the only title to be localised outside of Japan is the PlayStation 2 version, which launched in North America in 2004.
