This drum set I never stock at Bandai Namco, and usually the only way to get it is via third party sellers like Amazon. They are usually more expensive, around $80-$100. Note that The game is not included With a drum kit, so choose what’s heavily discounted Taiko no Tatsujin Rhythm Festival Game Over at Amazon at the same time.
Taiko no Tatsujin is a very fun and challenging drum percussion game for Nintendo Switch. Taiko no Tatsujin may not be bad in the States, but the franchise has been a huge hit and popular in Japan. There, it’s common in galleries where you’ll often see maestro performing supersets on the highest difficulty levels. The Nintendo Switch mimics this game in everything but its controls. Whereas in the arcade version you’re hitting the drumsticks, you’re relegated to using button controls or the touchscreen interface in the Switch version. This official drum kit from Hori is as close to the arcade version as you’ll get. It’s responsive and durable, and will make Taiko no Tatsujin feel like a whole new (and better) game.
