Namco Bandai drums up Japanese sales for 12/8 - 12/14

Japanese gamers evidently don't want to work; they just want to bang on the virtual drum all day.

Wii Warm Up: Taiko Risk Assessment

Taiko Drum Master was released in the US once, on PlayStation 2. It didn't really go well. Now Namco Bandai has revealed a version for the Wii, and we're wondering if they'll decide to localize it.

Wii Warm Up: Plugging it in

After seeing Taiko No Tatsujin Wii yesterday, we definitely think the drum looks pretty sweet ... but we also noticed something mildly annoying: it plugs into the Wii remote, like so many other things.
