Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival Arrives On Nintendo Switch This September

Earlier this year during a Nintendo Direct presentation, Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival was announced for Switch. Now, in an update, Bandai Namco has confirmed the game will be arriving on 23rd September worldwide.

As previously mentioned, there’ll be 76 songs included, plus an in-game subscription service – giving players access to over 500 songs at launch. One of the tracks even includes an orchestral version of the main theme from The Legend of Zelda. Here’s some PR from the original announcement:

“The latest Taiko no Tatsujin game is coming to Nintendo Switch! Drum to 76 boppin’ beats, including an orchestral version of the main theme from The Legend of Zelda, as well as “Gurenge,” “Feel Special” and “Racing into the Night.” Face off against each other in the new mode, Great Drum Toy War, or put on a live concert with friends in DON-chan Band. Plus, a paid in-game subscription service that gives you access to over 500 songs will be available at launch. Drum to your heart’s content when Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival launches on Nintendo Switch in 2022.”
