We keep following new Taiko no Tatsujin game announcements, even though we know the games are never going to leave Japan, because the games are just so delightful we can't help it. And now, according to retailer Gamestar, a second Wii game is headed to Japan on November 17, in both a drum bundle and by itself.

Called Taiko no Tatsujin: Dodon to 2-dai-me (roughly Taiko Drum Master: Dodon Chapter 2), the new game will contain over 70 songs and include the boss battle mode from the last DS game. The first Taiko drummed up some lovely sales upon its Japanese release, and, well, it doesn't take much to convince Namco to release Taiko sequels. Except in North America, where the series appeared once and shows no sign of returning.
