■ New Performance Characters
One of the new elements of Taiko Drum Master: Nintendo Switch Version! is “performance characters.” Each performance character has a skill that supports your performance. Joining these performance characters are Kirby from Kirby and Squid from Splatoon 2.
Since Squid’s skill lets you clear performances more easily, it enables even beginners to take on the challenge of a difficult song.
Kirby’s performance skill is recommended for people who might say, “I want to beat the drums with better timing to the rhythm,” or, “I want to barrage hit the balloon notes more successfully.” Also, the “Kirby Medley” from Kirby’s Return to Dream Land will appear in the game as a playable song.
Choose the performance character that meets your needs, then take on various songs.
■ Party Games Overview
Everyone Bon Odori
A game where everyone works together to achieve a high score. Flutter your Joy-Cons to the rhythm, push buttons, and dance back and forth. A sound cue will play when the turn direction changes, so be sure to pay attention.
If you fail, Don-chan and the others may fall over. Work together to successfully clear the game.
Home Run Batter
Swing to the rhythm when the ball comes your way. There may be curve balls in addition to straight pitches, so be sure to pay attention to the rhythm of the music. And if the pitcher throws a fireball straight, swing at the same time the ball is thrown. Aim for the home run.
By clearing a game, you will unlock higher difficulty games. Also, by playing games time and time again, you may also be able to choose new performance characters when playing songs. Play party games multiple times, then take on musical performances.
