Despite being in the magnificent company of games featuring a certain sword-wielding hedgehog, this blogger deliberately looked away from the...

We don't think 61FPS's John Constantine would lie about Sega planning to release Let's Tap in North America, but, well, there hasn't been an announcement yet, so we're going to label this a rumor for now. Sega has previously shown definite interest in localizing the title, for what it's worth. Acco...

The company registered the name "Toy-Lets" for use in video games.Toy-Lets.Okay, it's a funny title. But...

Described as "thoughtful and driven" by his interviewer, Yuji Naka is a man inexorably linked to Sonic the Hedgehog -- well, back when that was the cool thing to have on your business card -- and now, the surprisingly fun Let's Tap.

Some of you may disagree with our enjoyment of the Let's Tap soundtrack, but we're of the opinion that Prope's percussive minigame collection features music that even penguins could tap their feet to. These Let's Tap "Rhythm Tap" mode videos are presented as "Rhythm Tap Training" on the website, bec...

The ads for Let's Tap seem designed with one objective in mind: convincing us that anyone and everyone can get into the game. You too can tap like a champion, and all with a smile on your face and epic music in the background (provided you're a spiffy, cheerful Japanese person). This latest...

This Japanese TV commercial for Prope's Let's Tap just popped up on YouTube. While it contains no notable new footage, we do like the use of the 2001: A Space Odyssey theme, which suggests something EPIC and MONUMENTAL is coming, before you realize that no, it's just a really fun-looking, stylish m...
