Do-Don! It’s Time To Drum Up A Monster Hunter Medley

By Eugene . January 22, 2014 . 4:28pm

Taiko: Drum Master for Wii U promised free downloadable music and it’s delivering on that front. The game is renowned for including a metric ton of famous songs from all things geeky in Japan, and this week’s batch of DLC was no different.


In the recent DLC, there’s a tie-up collaboration with Monster Hunter 4, which will get you a lovable version of your Taiko dressed up in Monster Hunter gear as well as a Monster Hunter 4 medley theme.


Other songs include:

“Fall in love Fortune Cookie” by AKB48


“Just Live More” from Kamen Rider Gaim

“Miku Miku ni Shite Ageru”

“Field Burning Dance”


Taiko: Drum Master is out now on Wii U.

    Drum looked like a fish for a sec there.

    I wish Chibi Dragon to Fushigi na Orb had DLC. I would’ve loved a MH4 Medley. I hope another 3DS one comes out though.

    I would love to have another Taiko Drum Master game in the US. Why did the first one have to sell so poorly?! These games are so fun.

    • Spirit Macardi

      I’m guessing it sold poorly because they replaced most of the music from the Japanese version with crappy American pop music.

        Both the JP / NA version had the same track listing for the most part. I don’t blame them for using our music; you’re not going to attract an audience to a rhythm game when all of the songs are in a language you don’t understand, especially when many songs are full of high-pitched voices.

        It may be standard pop in Japan, but not so much in America. Also, the taiko itself is a Japanese instrument. NA is used to drums and guitars, thus the success of Rock Band / Guitar Hero. It’s a game series full of things that really don’t relate to the American culture…at all. I wish it did better, but I do not blame Namco for discontinuing it over here at all.

        I try to support the series as much as possible via importing / playing the arcades at conventions (yeah I know they aren’t profiting off of that.) but I draw the line at importing a Japanese Wii-U ._.’

          I don’t think the instrument thing is the reason. What’s a taiko? It’s a drum. Oh, a drum; you beat it with a stick. It speaks to any person, really. It’s no different than playing any other drum. Drums are probably the oldest instrument.

    Not surprising considering that Chibi Dragon to Fushigi na Orb has the MH3G medley~ =)

      Taiko no Tatsujin Wii: Chogouka-Ban had it as well. I could only clear it on Oni with the Wiimote – I’m too slow on the drums ._.’

  • I really wish the Wii U was region free I would import this game immediately. I hacked my Wii to play import games and imported numerous games…at this point I think Nintendo should just send out an update allowing it to play games from any region. It’s not a hardware lock it’s a software code.
