posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Bandai Namco Entertainment Southeast Asia began streaming a video for the Taiko no Tatsujin: Nintendo Switch Version! game on Friday, revealing that the game will get an English release in Southeast Asia on August 9. The game will ship with Japanese voice-over and Japanese, Chinese, and Korean text, with the English text available through a free patch at the same time as the game's release.
The game will ship for the Switch in Japan on July 19.
The game will include new control features that are unique to the Switch console, including using the Joy-Con controllers to input the rhythm commands. The game includes music from Nintendo games such as Super Mario Odyssey, Kirby's Return to Dream Land, and Yo-Kai Watch. New to the game are "performance characters," which players can select to assist them during the game.
The previous game in the series, Taiko No Tatsujin: Drum Session (Taiko no Tatsujin: Sesson de Dodon ga Don), also received an English release in Southeast Asia for the PlayStation 4 last October.
