Bandai Namco has released two more trailers for Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythmic Adventure Pack, coming December 3 to Nintendo Switch. Each video showcases an overview of the adventure, showing you what you might expect to see when choosing your Rhythmic Adventure.
The first adventure, titled Don and Katsu’s Great Time Adventure, stars the mascot of the series Don, meeting Tocky, the protector of all history. But when Professor Timedyne kidnaps her friend Ticky, history itself starts to unravel. Aided by Tocky, it’s Don’s job to travel through time and right the past’s wrongs.
The second adventure, entitled Dokodon! Mystery Adventure involves the great treasures of the world being stolen by an evil organization called The Hexagria Magical Society. And it’s up to Don and Katsu to get them back and keep the world in order. They’re both paper-thin plots, but it’s intended not to be a serious RPG story.
Each game has a unique combat system that borrows from Taiko no Tatsujin’s rhythm-oriented roots. You attack using a rhythmic drum beat. The better your score, the more effective your attack is. The goal of each move is to make it more effective than the last. And like other quirky RPGs before it, Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythmic Adventure Pack will allow you to befriend the monsters you fight, creating a stronger party for when you fight larger monsters. There are over 100 in total, even allowing for fusion combinations.
Other features included in the trailers is a fully custom Don you can make from the ground up, giving your own personal style and flair than his typical style. And if you’re a sucker for classic Taiko drum beating action, there’s a Taiko mode in the game as well. The tracklist goes over 130 in total, including new tracks such as Gurenge from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.
Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythmic Adventure Pack will be available on Nintendo Switch on November 26 in Japan and December 3 in Western Territories. If you’d like to see the trailers for yourself so you know what you’re in for, please check down below.
