Taiko no Tatsujin Hits Up The iPad


imageNamco Bandai has an upscaled version of Taiko no Tatsujin made just for the iPad. Tap the virtual drum on the iPad’s touch screen to hit the notes, but don’t tap too hard. The iPad isn’t as durable as those taiko drums in arcades.


Taiko no Tatsujin Plus comes with “Carmen” and costs nothing to download, you just have to pay for additional music. Three song packs are available: popular song pack 1, popular song pack 2, and J-pop pack 1. Each one has five songs and costs 600 yen ($6.60).


Taiko no Tatsujin Plus is also optimized for Twitter addicts. You can set the game to auto-tweet high scores. You’ll start seeing those in Twitter feeds on May 28 when the game comes out in Japan.
