Video Games: Taiko no Tatsujin (太鼓の達人)

Following last time Jubeat, this time I’ll introduce to you a rhythm video game which many of you might have heard of! It’s Taiko no Tatsujin (太鼓の達人)!

It is a series of rhythm games created by Namco with releases  for arcade, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, PS2, PSP, Wii, Wii U, iOS, Advanced Pico Beena, and mobile phones. The first arcade release was in February 2001.

The goal of the game is hitting the drums timing it with the music and the symbols that appear in the screen. It’s possible to hit both the center of the drums and the side, producing two different sounds.

Here is a video from two of my friends playing it at a game center here in Tokyo!
