Bandai Namco's long-running, drum-bashing rhythm series Taiko no Tatsujin is returning this winter in the newly revealed guise of Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythmic Adventure Pack - a bundle of two previously Japan-only 3DS RPGs, localised and spruced up for Switch. More specifically, Bandai Namco's Rhythmic Adventure Pack brings Taiko no Tatsujin: Dokodon! Mystery Adventure and Taiko no Tatsujin: Don to Katsu no Jikuu Daibouken to the west for the first time, both of which combine the series' familiar rhythm-based drum-pummelling action with story driven exploration and combat more reminiscent of an RPG.
