Taiko no Tatsujin - Gamers Heroes
Bandai Namco announced today that Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘N’ Fun! for the Nintendo Switch and Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session! for the PlayStation 4 are now available.

Both of these title have unique features that tailor the drumming experience to each platform. Drum ‘n’ Fun! for the Nintendo Switch introduces motion-control play which has players using the Joy-Con controllers as drum sticks, and also features characters like the Squid from Splatoon and the pink puffball Kirby.

Drum Session! for the PlayStation 4 is more competitive based, featuring a Ranked Mode that has Taiko players compete against each other worldwide through the use of ghost data. Guest Sessions with characters like Hatsune Miku, Hello Kitty, and more are also available. “Taiko World Fest” will come to this title starting today, and will run through November 13. During this special event, players will be able to earn bonuses by playing ranked matches against other players.
