Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum 'n' Fun is a rhythm game developed and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. It was first released in Japan and other parts of Asia in July 2018, in North America, Europe and Australia in November 2018. The title's release marks the first release of a Taiko no Tatsujin game to western audiences in over a decade.
Similarly to past entries in the series, music notes, represented by circular faces of the series' mascots, move across a timeline in the middle of the screen from right to left. Red notes (ドン don) represent the face of the drum, while blue notes (カッ ka) represent the drum's rim. Successfully playing the correct note as each one reaches the end of the timeline builds up a "Soul Gauge". If the gauge reaches a certain point by the end of the song, the stage is cleared. Besides traditional gameplay, a multitude of multiplayer rhythm-based party games are present to further expand upon the concept.
