I'm sad that the Taiko no Tatsujin games were not a success in America, but I know why -- the American version, Taiko Drum Master, simply lacked the musical oomph that the original Japanese games pull off so well (and I'm not just saying that because I'm a big Japanese music fan!). There's definitely something unappealing about beating a replica of a taiko drum to a Britney Spears song.

Meanwhile in Japan, sales of the series are as strong as ever, and the Wii version of Taiko no Tatsujin gets its sequel next month. Called Taiko no Tatsujin Dodon to 2 Dai Me, the game boasts seventy songs, including new stuff from chiptune masters YMCK. It seems as if the game will also include an expanded version of the adventure mode from Taiko no Tatsujin DS 2.

The game comes out on November 19th and can either be purchased with the drum peripheral for $89 or without for $56. Guess I better get my wallet ready for another import...
