See Hatsune Miku’s Latest Performance In Taiko Drum Master

By Spencer . July 14, 2011 . 12:21am

Hatsune Miku is no stranger to Namco Bandai’s popular Taiko Drum Master series. Her digitized voice was in one of the Nintendo DS Taiko no Tatsujin titles.


In Taiko no Tatsujin Portable DX, Hatsune Miku performs one of her hits. The PSP game includes the track "The Singing Passion of Hatsune Miku" where the Vocaloid idol dances with some of Wada-don’s drum buddies. Keep a combo going strong and some of Hatsune Miku’s friends will join the party.


Taiko no Tatsujin Portable DX was released in Japan today

  • Freaking insane… 

    I find Project Diva easier than Taiko no Tatsujin, even if it has more buttons. TnT is more rhythm than melody based which makes it harder for me;; 

    EDIT: I didn’t realize the video in the post wasn’t the oni mode version linked by Xerain below…

    • This song is a good basis of comparison, too, since it’s in both games… and while I have yet to play it in Taiko no Tatsujin, I can say just by watching this video that IT’S MUCH HARDER THAN IT IS IN PROJECT DIVA. Holy crap…

      • The song is already impossible on Extreme, even on Hard! But this.. looks much harder than Extreme :’D I don’t think I could do that much button spamming. 

      • Yes! While I like that song in rhythm games in theory, in practice it hurts so bad trying to play it and pass it. Like, thumbs aching bad. I can manage it on the easiest mode in Project Diva, but that’s it.

    • Xerain

      Actually it’s not that insane compared to the video I thought they were going to post:
      As you can see, it can be much harder. (And someone Full Comboed it already.)

      • OTL I didn’t watched the linked video in the post. I automatically assumed it was the version you just linked right now (the oni-mode one) 

        The one shown in the post IS doable for the most part…

      • amagidyne

         Wow. It’s practically a breakcore remix.

  • Mister_Nep

    And suddenly I’m interested, but the game looks so ridiculously hard. That oni video was insane. So I’ll be wary of purchasing this at full price.

  • FireCouch

    There aren’t enough rhythm games out there.  I can’t wait to play this.

  • KotaroInugami

    Wow, love it. I never did pass that song on expert on Project Diva…

    • SupaPhly

      me too, for that last part you need crab fingers or something

  • SupaPhly

    for some reason on taiko no tatsujin for the ds, I do really well on fast parts of a song, but when it goes slow I screw up most of the time :/

  • Are the PSP Taiko no Tatsujin games controlled just with the buttons or do they have a special controller or input device?

  • AzureNova

    I MUST play this song now.

  • Can someone say what the song is actually called, and who the artist is?

    • The information is in the article. The song’s title, in English, is “The Singing Passion of Hatsune Miku” and the artist is Hatsune Miku. It’s one of her original songs.

      • Oh, thanks, for some reason that didn’t register in my brain when I read it.
        I just assumed they’d state a ‘real’ artist somewhere.. I forgot the whole point of Hatsune Miku is the voice synthesis software..    0__o;
