The rhythm music game Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun is receiving an eSports tournament update on 19th August.
It adds a competitive online mode featuring the following difficulties: easy, normal, hard, and extreme. In round one, a song is randomly selected and the second round requires the player to perform their own "My Battle" song. A winner is then decided based on each competitor's total score.
The winner gets a gold medal and the runner-up receives a silver medal, In this mode, you'll also unlock icons and greetings to use when you play online. Players who lose can still spectate and send supportive hearts to liven up the on-screen action. There's new battle commentary from Master Bachio, too.
In Japan, Bandai Namco is also releasing new song DLC - there'll be an individual Pokémon track, a rock music pack, and vocaloid music pack (Vol. 5) featuring Hatsune Miku.
