#054 Taiko no Tatsujin

‘Taiko no Tatsujin’ is a rhythm game series based on traditional Japanese drumming.


You can find it in arcades, apps for phones and on many games consoles.

It involves hitting a drum (or pressing buttons) in sync with the icons scrolling along the screen.

The games feature classical music, video game themes, J-pop and more.
