Go Go Taiko no Tatsujin! Power Rangers to the rescue!

By Spencer . March 19, 2008 . 10:25am

taikoc.jpgNamco Bandai is loading Taiko no Tatsujin DS: 7-tsu no Shima no Daibouken with guest characters. On top of Doraemon, the Idolm@ster and Oshiri Kajiri Mushi we’re going to see the latest group of Super Sentai (i.e. the Japanese equivalent of the Power Rangers) in Namco Bandai’s handheld drumming game. The theme to Engine Sentai Go-Onger Ranger is a playable track complete with super deformed Power Rangers dancing underneath the notes.

 

In addition to the helmeted heroes modernized GeGeGe no Kitaro and Fukoumori songs are some of the other themes in Taiko no Tatsujin DS: 7-tsu no Shima no Daibouken.

    I hate to be an ass, but PLEASE don’t call Super Sentai Power Rangers if you know what is good for you. You don’t even want to open that can of worms. I have seen it, it isn’t pretty. :) Still this is interesting though it is probably worth noting that Juuken Sentai Gekiranger was in the last game, just without the actual characters in the game. With Super Sentai main sponsor Bandai now one company with Namco, this isn’t really surprising.

    I’ve never really been a fan of Taiko no Tatsujin, but the songs in this one sound great. It’s been years since I’ve seen a real sentai or tokusatsu show, I remember my favorite being Kamen Rider RX, coolness.

    Ohhhh boy, Spencer. I’m gonna echo what Daizyujin said a bit here…you should never refer to Sentai rangers as “Power Rangers”, especially around Sentai fans. Being a hardcore Sentai fan myself, and being pretty active in Toku fan communities, I know how bad things can get when Sentai is referred to as “Power Rangers”. *lol* Daizyujin is right. It ISN’T pretty. :P

    @Daizyujin

    Nice name, by the way. Zyuranger rules.

    @Daizyujin / Levi – I’m aware of the difference, but I don’t think many readers would get the significance of the reference if I didn’t. It’s a catch 22!
