Taiko No Tatsujin: The Drum Master Launches With Xbox Game Pass This Thursday

In the midst of all the crazy Activision Blizzard news yesterday, Microsoft also revealed a new batch of Xbox Game Pass titles for January, including the news that Taiko No Tatsujin will be making its debut on Xbox next week.

The game is called Taiko No Tatsujin: The Drum Master, and appears to be a modified and/or enhanced version of Drum 'N' Fun for Nintendo Switch and Drum Session for PS4, featuring "70 pieces ranging from classics to popular songs" — it also comes complete with local multiplayer for two players, along with a ranked online mode.

For the uninitiated, Taiko No Tatsujin games are rhythm titles, serving as a mix between the likes of Rock Band, Donkey Konga, Rhythm Paradise and others. Essentially, the goal is to drum to the beat as accurately as you can.

Taiko No Tatsujin: The Drum Master will be available with Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on Thursday, January 27th, and it'll also be available with PC Game Pass if you prefer to play that way.

Drum along and ride into the rhythm with the two types of notes [Don] & [Katsu] and aim for the highest score! Have a fun Taiko performance with a extensive lineup of estimated 70 pieces ranging from classic to popular songs such as [Homura], [Into the Night], [MEGALOVANIA]!
