Earlier this year, Bandai Namco announced that it would release Taiko no Tatsujin: Festival of Rhythm sometime this year on Nintendo Switch.
Now, in an update, it is confirmed that the game will arrive on September 23 worldwide. As mentioned above, 76 songs will be included, plus an in-game subscription service, giving players access to over 500 songs at launch.
One of the tracks even includes an orchestral version of the theme song from The legend of Zelda. Here’s some PR from the original announcement:
