Let's drum! Ta-don!

Taiko no Tatsujin Session de Dodongadon
PlayStation®4 | Genre: Music Game

The word taiko is formed by the ideograms 太 (tai which means “big”) and 鼓 (ko which means “drum”), in the traditional culture its importance goes beyond its nature as a mere musical instrument. Being made of wood, it partakes of the sacrality of the tree from which it was made, and its powerful and thunderous sound can reach the land above the clouds where the Kami lives.
Since ancient times the taiko has been the main instrument of most of the religious folk ceremonies, as a means of communication between the earthly and divine beings. Used also in Noh and Kabuki theatres the taiko is still today one of the symbols of Japan.

This why in 2001, Bandai Namco has released in the arcades the first episode of the long-life music games’ series Taiko no Tatsujin. During the years it became so popular that  WadaDon and WadaKatsu – the round main characters – are frequently portrayed as special hosts in other video games including Hatsune Miku, Puzzle & Dragons, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel, and Tekken 7.

This week Taiko no Tatsujin Session de Dodongadon will be released for PlayStation 4. Featuring more than 70 tracks from the J-Pop latest hits to the anime classic songs, passing through Vocaloid and games’ music, this new episode you must prove your skills with the taiko sticks. Beat the drums and reach the top of the chart to be crowned as the greatest taiko player of the world!

In addition other than the classics “arcade” and “story” modes, a big number of new game modes has been implemented for the very first time: the “Guest Session” that allows you to play with the most famous Japanese pop-icons such as Doraemon, Hello Kitty, Pacman, end even Heihachi Mishima or the “Best Replay” mode in which you’ll face very difficult songs that will grant you the access to the Olympus of the taiko players. As tradition wants, each song has its own achievements. By achieving bingos, you’ll receive a treasure chest which contains (if you’re lucky!) some special items that can be used to customize the taiko, modify the name tag or change the profile icons.

It's time to go pro playing with the realistic "drum controller" designed specifically for this new game! The fun will never stop with Taiko no Tatsujin Session de Dodongadon, the super exciting taiko festival for PlayStation 4!
