If you’ve been eyeing the official drum controller for the Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun! but shied away at the steep price, look again. Right now it’s on sale for the lowest price ever.
Official Taiko no Tatsujin Controller for Switch
Taiko no Tatsujin Rhythm Festival
Right now you can pick up the officially licensed Hori Taiko no Tatsujin drum controller from the Bandai Namco Store for only $62.99, a 10% price drop from the original $70 MSRP. This drum kit is almost never in stock at Bandai Namco, and the only way to normally get it is via 3rd party vendors like on Amazon. They are usually more expensive, between $80-$100. Note that the game isn’t included with the drum kit, so pick up the heavily discounted Taiko no Tatsujin Rhythm Festival game over at Amazon at the same time.
Taiko no Tatsujin is an extremely fun and challenging drum rhythm game for the Nintendo Switch. Taiko no Tatsujin might not be well down in the United States, but the franchise is hugely successful and popular in Japan. There, it’s a common presence in arcade galleries where you’ll often see maestros performing superhuman combos on the highest difficulty levels. The Nintendo Switch game emulates this game in everything but its controls. Whereas in the arcade version you’re banging away on drumsticks, you’re relegated to using the button controls or the touchscreen interface in the Switch version. This official drum kit from Hori is as close to the arcade version as you’re going to get. It’s responsive, it’s durable, and it will make Taiko no Tatsujin feel like a whole new (and better) game.
