Namco Bandai is bringing the Taiko: Drum Master series to Wii U and  Taiko: Drum Master Wii U Version has a control scheme similar to the Taiko games on Nintendo DS.


Taiko: Drum Master Wii U Version has a song from Super Mario Bros. complete with 8-bit Mario and Bowser jumping around when you stay on beat. The game also has a crossover with the idol group Momorio Clover Z and crossover costumes to dress the drum mascot as different members from the group.



Taiko: Drum Master Wii U Version is slated for release on November 21.

    Man Nintendo is doing crossovers all over the place.

    And here is another reason I wish (recent) Nintendo systems weren’t region locked. I love Taiko no Tatsujin.

    More Mario milk to attempt Wii U sales. Yawn. Why can’t Nintendo let exclusive 3rd party games stand on their own merits? It appeared that Drum Master was a popular franchise without cramming Mario into it.

      RIght, because people play Taiko just for Mario, yes? Genius!

  • DS23

    I sure do love region locks.

    and one addicting song!

    Hate the Wii U and refuse to buy it. That said, if Taiko got a US release on the Wii U (or any system), I’d buy it instantly.
