Bandai Namco has officially announced that Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun! will arrive on Switch in Europe and North America this November.
We've been expecting this taiko drum rhythm game to arrive for some time, with several recent trademarks appearing recently which all hinted at a western release at some point in the near future. This Switch edition of the game boasts unique features that were designed especially with the console in mind.
Using the Joy-Con controllers as drumsticks, Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun! introduces motion control play that aims to replicate the popular arcade-style experience so often seen in Japan. The game also features 20 multiplayer rhythm-based mini-games that can be played by up to 4 players, as well as a 'Rhythm Games Mode', in which players will be able to play as characters from classic Nintendo games including Kirby and a Squid from Splatoon 2.
There's no word just yet on whether or not the Hori Taiko Drum Controller will also make it over to the west, but the product is currently available to import from Play-Asia.
Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun! launches on Nintendo Switch in both regions on 2nd November.
