Taiko no Tatsujin is coming back to PSP with a ton of songs. The next game in the series, Taiko no Tatsujin Portable DX has over 70 tunes to drum to and many of them are pop hits between 2010-11.
AKB48’s "Heavy Rotation" is confirmed as well as "Thank You" from Ikimono-gakari. Like other games in the long running Taiko Drum Master series there will be an assortment of anime theme songs, variety music, and video game melodies.
A song from the popular PSP game Monster Hunter Portable 3rd will be in Taiko no Tatsujin Portable DX where felynes boogie in the background. And since this is a Namco Bandai music game you know there’s an Idolm@ster tie-in song too.
Taiko no Tatsujin Portable DX will be in stores on July 14. Post-launch, Namco Bandai will release more songs – J-Pop, anime, and Namco originals as downloadable content.
