Bandai Namco has just announced a new free update to the Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival game. This time, players can get fit and move their body in the brand-new Don-Don Fitness Mode, where players swing each of the Joy-Cons in time with the virtual taiko drum targets.
By swinging the Joy-Cons in larger arcs, players can move their entire body and and aim for a high score to get additional in-game rewards. Furthermore, the mode is also capable of estimating the number of calories burnt for each song, and the total calories burned in each session.
You can view screenshots of the new mode in our gallery below:
In Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival, players can drum along to reach delightful levels of synchronicity with an extensive library of over 76 bopping beats ranging from classical to popular hit songs. Additionally, Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival features two new gameplay modes. In DON-chan Band Mode, players can take part in a 4-player live concert and jam out together. In the Great Drum Toy War Mode, players will be able to face-off against each other to decide who is the ultimate drumming master! Furthermore, Rhythm Festival also supports the Taiko Music Pass, a subscription service with an ever-growing library of songs.
