For the first time in the series, you’ll get to play alongside a friend’s data. By registering a friend or family member’s PSN account, you’ll get to have a session against their performance data. And of course you’ll get to play together as done in previous entries of the series.
A new “Guest Session Performance” feature will let you have a session with popular characters. For example, for Doraemon’s Guest Session, you’ll have Doraemon appear before and during the performance, talking and showing off various actions.
An exclusive USB controller that’ll let you simply plug-in and play is also in the works. The controller made by Hori will be available on its own and also as a bundle with Taiko no Tatsujin: Session de Dodon ga Don!
Taiko no Tatsujin: Session de Dodon ga Don! releases for PlayStation 4 in Japan in 2017. The game’s development is currently 80% complete.
