The raucous crew of Taiko no Tatsujin is at it again with a new Nintendo DS game which includes a story based adventure mode and another collection of songs with which to bang your drum to. Another innovation is the concept of rivals which adds antagonistic drama to the game. As the story goes, players trek to seven islands to meet and beat various opponents in rhythm based drum action. Perform up to par and you'll continue onwards but falter and your journey ends. Abruptly.
When the game first starts up, a total of 36 tracks are playable but Namco touts a total of 50 songs in the game so 14 tunes must be unlocked. Similar to the first Taiko DS game, a pair of drumsticks is included inside the game package so players can hit the virtual Taiko in style.

Japanese NDS games may be played on North American and European NDS handhelds. There is no region-coding on Nintendo DS game cards.

NCS Game Notes
» When the game starts, a tambourine, a snare drum, and a standard Taiko are selectable. When striking the touch screen, the sound that issues forth from the speakers differs for each instrument. An additional 12 percussion instruments may be unlocked as you progress through the game.

» The Taiko may be customized in terms of color (face, body, rims) and accessories such as hats and body adornments. A length of rope tied into a loop is available as a hat in the beginning but a large amount of other headgear can be unlocked. Once the Taiko is outfitted, it'll appear with its new accessories on the upper left corner of the screen for each game. After playing a few songs, accessories that are unlocked include a bird that may be perched on top of Taiko and a panda-color scheme.

» Guest appearances by the cast of Gegege no Kitaro, Engine Squadron Go-onger, Fukou Mori, Idol Master, Moji-Pittan are bonuses. For retro gamers, the pixel hero from the Famicom Spelunker game also makes an appearance. When playing the Spelunker song, the little cavern explorer is shown running along while a bat and a ghost float nearby. If you do well, Spelunker is eventually surrounded by mounds of treasure.
