Taiko no Tatsujin Sequel Beats On Wii Next Month

Namco Bandai is following up Taiko no Tatsujin Wii with Taiko no Tatsujin Dodon to Ni Dai Me on November 19.


This game has seventy songs, but many of them look familiar. Aren’t “Linda Linda”, “Cutie Honey”, “Dragon’s Soul”, and “Cruel Angel’s Thesis” in other Taiko no Tatsujin games? New songs include “Be Your Wings” – the Tales of Vs. theme and “Family Don Don” from YMCK.


Solo drummers can enjoy single player modes like an expanded adventure mode from Taiko no Tatsujin DS 2 and daily challenges.


In Japan, Namco Bandai plans to sell two versions of Taiko no Tatsujin Dodon to Ni Dai Me. You can get the game plus a drum for 7,980 yen ($89) or just the disc for 5,040 yen ($56). The drum appears to be a hard plastic drum too so Namco Bandai must be saving their inflatable Taiko no Tatsujin controller for another game.

  • I want this to go along with my PS2 collection but I also don’t want to pay shipping costs for the Wii drum. Does anyone know a place where they are selling it for that price with free shipping? Probably not.

  • Well now that there’s two Taiko no Tatsujin wii games, it looks like it’s time to invest in the taiko wii controller. Also, you can never have enough Linda Linda in a taiko no tatsujin game(the only song I can play on oni mode).

  • coincidentally I bought the PS2 version online =) I think the hard drum is much better, it’s nice when you can hear you hit the drum. Also I wonder how’d you tell the difference between inner and outer hits on an inflatable drum…

  • Unless “Dragon’s Soul” was in the arcade release “Taiko no Tatsujin 12”, then “Dragon’s Soul” is also a new song in the series.
