About Taiko no Tatsujin: Nintendo Switch Version!
Taiko Drum Master: Nintendo Switch Version! is a funny music game in which the players must press buttons or move the controllers according to the rhythm. The game is a remaster of Taiko Drum Master, a game that was released in 2004 on PlayStation 2. The publisher of the new version, Bandai Namco Entertainment, made sure that the game supports all unique traits of Nintendo Switch, including the motion controllers with HD Rumble.
The gameplay principles are very simple: the players are selecting the song and then they are trying to match its rhythm by moving joy-cons. Different moves represent specific tunes. Hints presented on the screen are making the task easier. The Nintendo Switch edition was enriched with a new feature: character selection. Each character is unique and can manage better with specific moves. This enables the character to collect more points (Lantern Eel can for example quickly hit in drum sections) or to make the game easier (Master Drumsticks – removes differences between some tunes, making mistakes more forgettable). The game features a few dozen songs that belong to genres like pop music, classical music and games and anime soundtracks.
Taiko Drum Master: Nintendo Switch Version! can be played alone or with other players in local multiplayer mode. The latter is especially worth attention as it enables four Nintendo Switches to be connected and used to play songs together – each player receives unique tasks and cooperation is required for winning.
Taiko Drum Master: Nintendo Switch Version! features a simple, two-dimensional graphics based on animated screens.
