Familiar faces return in Taiko no Tatsujin Wii


Taiko no Tatsujin games are full of guest appearances. Certain songs from anime or video games will feature characters from those properties under the note display, dancing or otherwise moving along with the music. The Super Mario Bros. theme commonly features visuals inspired by the game, and Doraemon and friends show up for "Yume wo Kanaete Doraemon."

They're back in Taiko no Tatsujin Wii, along with their familiar songs. Other game-based songs on the disc (though we don't know which will feature themed visuals) include a Star Soldier medley and "Do-Dai" from The Idolm@ster. Anime themes include songs from Naruto, One Piece, Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, and Yes! Precure 5.

After the break, we've got the Taiko Wii box, which looks a bit cereal-box-esque to us for no real reason! How do Taiko games still use the old Namco logo?
