Taiko no Tatsujin Switch Esports Tournament

Bandai Namco has released more details on the upcoming free update for Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun! on Nintendo Switch, which will add a new eSports Tournament mode on August 19, 2020. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]

The eSports Tournament mode was first revealed last month when Bandai Namco celebrated Drum ‘n’ Fun!‘s 1 million sales. You can join an eight-player tournament with one of the four difficulty types: Easy, Normal, Hard, and Extreme.

Matches in this tournament mode will use the same scoring format as the official tournaments that have been held offline. The first match will use songs picked randomly from the initial in-game roster, while for the second match and beyond, each player is able to play with a song of their own choice.

Play in the tournaments a lot to unlock icons and greetings that can be used as your profile in online battles. Even if you lose in the tournament, you can still watch the remaining matches as a spectator and cheer other players by sending heart marks.

Bandai Namco has also published a list of new DLC songs for Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun! that will be released on August 20, 2020, which are as follows:

Single Song

  • “1-2-3” (from Pocket Monsters)

Rock Music Pack

  • “Nonsense Bungaku”
  • “PHOENIX” (from Haikyuu!! To The Top)

Vocaloid Song Pack Vol.5

  • “Otome Kaibou”
  • “Taiyoukei Disco”
  • “Alkali Rettousei” (from #COMPASS Combat Providence Analysis System)
  • “Melt”
  • “Coffee no Aji to”

Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun! is available worldwide on Nintendo Switch.
