The collection includes Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythmic Adventure 1 (Taiko no Tatsujin: Don to Katsu no Jikū Daibōken), which originally launched for the Nintendo 3DS in June 2014, and Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythmic Adventure 2 (Taiko no Tatsujin: Dokodon! Mystery Adventure), which launched for the 3DS in June 2016.
The games are rhythm adventure RPGs. There is also a rhythm mode with over 130 songs, including "Gurenge," the opening theme song to the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime. The game includes new control features that are unique to the Switch console, including using the Joy-Con controllers to input the rhythm commands.
The Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum 'n' Fun! Switch game and the Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session! PlayStation 4 game launched in the Americas and Europe in November 2018. A physical edition of Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum 'n' Fun! with the drum set controller is available in Europe. Bandai Namco Entertainment America did not release a physical version of either game in North America.
Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session! (Taiko no Tatsujin: Session de Dodon ga Don!) shipped for the PS4 in Japan in October 2017. The game also received an English release in Southeast Asia in the same month.
