Is A Taiko No Tatsujin Wii U Sequel In Development?

Taiko no Tatsujin, the rhythm based games created by Namco, may be getting a sequel on the Wii U. The news was discovered by NeoGAF member HeroOfLegend who spotted the site,, which is currently giving an error message of “test page”. Interestingly the same thing happened with the previous game before becoming official. The series has done fairly well in Japan, but has yet to come to the west.

  1. I’m truly excited for this game. There is a high demand for a sequel and this will be the next Wii U system seller

    -The fanbase that doesn’t exist

    1. Anyone who has played Taiko Tatsujin before knows that it is gold! My favourite is the arcade version, which I played the hell out of in Japan. I reeeeally would like a localisation of this game (even with only Japanese songs!) because due to Nintendo’s region locking I was only ever able to import the DS game.

  2. Here’s a little fun fact. The series in the US is known as Taiko Drum Master, a game that once existed on the PS2 with it’s on Drum Controller.

  3. Not too sure I’d get this, is it was available. But I am hoping Fatal Frame and Fire Emblem X have worldwide releases.

        1. Nintendo is my Blood Reborn

          If Mr. Mime ditched his pedophile persona and became a sadistic, than yeah, what IS that thing anyway?

  4. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

    If someone in here tried to hack into my twitter account then I’m warning you now, I’ll be looking it up…

    I’ll send NIMB or someone far worse on you since my despise of humans knows no limits…

    1. Nintendo is my Blood Reborn

      Someone tried to hack your Twitter? How could you know than?
      And my services don’t come cheap.

  5. Did they ever bring one of these games to America? I’ve always wanted to play one of them as I love rhythm based games. Hopefully this one will hit western shores eventually.

    1. They brought the PS2 version to the USA, but if you want to play the game the best bet is just importing the DS version through ebay or another online store. You honestly don’t need any knowledge of Japanese to play this game (I play the DS version and I know next to no Japanese). The game is insanely fun too!

  6. Doesn’t matter for us. We won’t get it. We were given one taiko no Tatsujin game and they put such a horridly westernized sound track on it that it completely ruined the game and destroyed any chance of us getting more. At least, I think we were only given one. I could be wrong.

  7. Honestly, I am in Japan now, and I have been playing the hell outta this in arcades.

    Imagine when I discover yesterday that it is on Wii U! I want it!!!
