Taiko no Tatsujin: Tokumori! On the Wii U console, this is a classic music and rhythm game in which players use virtual taiko drums. Production is already the second installment of the series, which came to Wii U. The first one, entitled Taiko no Tatsujin: Wii U Version, was published in 2013. As usual, Bandai Namco is responsible for creating the game. The Taiko no Tatsujin series began its life in 2001 in Japanese arcade salons, where it gained great popularity and a multitude of fans. Since then, it has had several more versions, including ports on PlayStation 2, PSP, PS Vita, Wii, WiiU, Nintendo DS and 3DS. The series had only one official release in the West, in 2004 it was released on PlayStation 2 under the changed title Taiko Drum Master.

The game model in Taiko no Tatsujin: Tokumori! is extremely simple and, like other games in the genre, relies on the hearing of players, their reaction speed and knowledge of individual tracks. Our task is to accurately beat the rhythm on taiko drums. This is done with a few buttons. During the game, has a colorful screen on a straight line move from right to left red and blue symbols of the drum, indicating where you want to hit the instrument (red - center, blue - edges). The title offers four difficulty levels, which increase the frequency of symbols and introduce additional challenges.

Taiko no Tatsujin: Tokumori! has several different control variants, based on the use of a flap, buttons or a touch screen pad. As with Taiko no Tatsujin: Wii U version, a special edition of the game is sold with a unique taiko-shaped controller. The title also works seamlessly with older dedicated controllers that were sold with earlier versions of the series released on Wii.

Like its predecessor, the title has a local multiplayer mode for up to four players. They can use their own controllers or exchange the pad by passing songs one by one. A novelty in the series is a bonus variant of common fun, in which the players guess the names of the songs played.

The production has an extensive library of over 100 licensed works from anime, games, series and popular films in the Land of the Cherry Blossom. In addition, you can also find many new songs in Nintendo's digital store. The graphic design of the title retains the colourful and distinctive style of the series.
