FAQs - Taiko no Tatsujin
One of Namco's inventions, Taiko no Tatsujin features two Taiko drums, one for each player. Each player uses two sticks to hit the drum. There are four ways in which you can hit the drum: in the middle, on the edge, both sticks hard in the center, and both sticks in rapid succession. The notes scroll from the right to left and are depicted as smilies. The color and expression of smilie determines which of the four hits to do. The music in this game is primarily traditional Japanese music.
