Leading video game and interactive entertainment developer and publisher, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe, announced today TAIKO NO TATSUJIN™: RHYTHMIC ADVENTURE PACK, a two-games-in-one package for the Nintendo Switch®, slated for launch in Australia and New Zealand in Summer 2020.


Currently in development by Tokyo, Japan based DOKIDOKI GROOVEWORKS Inc., TAIKO NO TATSUJIN: RHYTHMIC ADVENTURE PACK officially brings two never-released-in-the-west Taiko no Tatsujin titles (Taiko no Tatsujin Rhythmic Adventure 1 & 2) to players outside of Japan; delivering a one-of-a-kind experience to the cult-classic Japanese rhythm game. TAIKO NO TATSUJIN: RHYTHMIC ADVENTURE PACK presents a unique storyline as players set out on two different Role-Playing-Game (RPG) adventures taking them through different periods in history, and into the future, to battle over 250 different monsters, bosses, and enemy drums.

Players will need to hone their rhythmic drum playing skills in order to beat enemies. Completing challenging rhythmic combos will deal more damage to enemy characters, leading to their defeat. However, old enemies can become future allies as players are able to invite vanquished foes to join their party to take-on even more powerful enemies and bosses. Fans of the series will also be able to enjoy classic Taiko no Tatsujin gameplay in TAIKO NO TATSUJIN: RHYTHMIC ADVENTURE PACK’s Rhythm Game Mode which will feature over 100 songs and six entirely new tracks.

“The Taiko no Tatsujin series is a very unique and beloved franchise in BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment’s portfolio. With the TAIKO NO TATSUJIN: RHYTHMIC ADVENTURE PACK, we’re excited to have two games that were exclusive to Japan coming to our fans in the west,” said Herve Hoerdt, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Digital and Content at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe. “The TAIKO NO TATSUJIN: RHYTHMIC ADVENTURE PACK  will deliver lots of fun and a surprising RPG adventure through its challenging rhythmic gameplay that both longtime fans and new players will thoroughly enjoy.” 

TAIKO NO TATSUJIN: RHYTHMIC ADVENTURE PACK for Nintendo Switch is scheduled for launch on in Europe on Winter 2020.
