Further securing its place on our list of games that need to be imported, Taiko Drum Master: 7 Islands' Adventure will feature more than just a drum. Siliconera reports that the game will include six other percussive instruments, like a tambourine, a bell, and, well -- some other types of drums. T...

The DS dropped to third in last week's hardware sales, as the PSP inched its way to first. (In case you haven't been keeping track, Wii sales have been above those of the DS for quite some time, but the PSP and DS keep flip-flopping for the week's best selling portable.) Hardware: PSP: 73,706 ...

The DS and PSP seem to be in a tooth-and-nail fight for second place. This week, the PSP took back the second spot, but just barely. Hardware: Wii: 63,504 PSP: 53,373 Nintendo DS: 50,151 PlayStation 3: 14,060 PlayStation 2: 9,634 Xbox 360: 2,001 The DS did better in software, tho...

You know, we've never really felt the need to actually purchase one of the many stands available for the DS. We don't own Cooking Navi and playing Elite Beat Agents (or Ouendan) can be accomplished fairly easily by holding the DS with one of our hands and playing with the other. Then, we get an eye ...

Aside from Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games, the best seller for the DS last week was L, the Prologue to Death Note: Rasen no Wana. It's no surprise that this game did well in Japan, as it's based off a popular anime series. It wasn't enough to help the DS overcome the PSP or Wii this week, thou...

It's a sad day for the DS in Japan. As Media Create's hardware figures from last week were released, we found out that not only the Wii topped the DS (like the week before), but also the PSP managed to overtake the dual-screened handheld. Hardware: Wii: 94,473 PSP: 72,528 Nintendo DS: 67,47...

However, when it comes to Taiko Drum Master, there's little stopping this blogger from destroying all in his path to the delicious news.

JeuxFrance has posted some images of the DS instalment of Namco Bandai's popular drum-bashing rhythm series, Taiko Drum Master (or the fun-to-pronounce Taiko no Tatsujin in Japan). The game, which we feel must be described as "unflinchingly adorable," makes use of two styli for tapping along to the ...

After the initial flash flood, rhythm games have been steadily loosing the public's interest, at least in the western world. But apparently Namco would like to challenge that notion, as it has recently ported over its popular Japanese drum series, Taiko Drum Master, to the US. Drum Master is by no m...
