Taiko no Tatsujin 14 (太鼓の達人 14?) is an upcoming rhythm arcade game developed and published by Namco, and distributed by Bandai Namco Games. It will be released in 2010 in Japan. It is unknown that this arcade game will be released to Malaysia, but seen only old releases of Taiko games mostly in Jusco stores. It will be the fourteenth Taiko game in this series.


Symbols moving horizontally along a timeline show the player what to hit and when. Blue symbols indicate that the drum should be hit on the rim. Red symbols indicate that the face of the drum should be hit. The drum can be hit on the left and/or right side. The symbols can be either large or small. Large symbols indicate that the drum should be struck on both sides simultaneously, and small symbols indicate that the drum should be hit on either side. A large blue symbol thus means that the left and right rim should be hit at the same time.

In the Japanese version, subtitles under the symbols give the pronunciation of the sounds (for example, "do don do don") using a traditional system called kuchi shoga (口唱歌).

While its appearance may seem cute, it is actually quite difficult: the player needs to accomplish at least 65% of the drum chart to pass, and the harder levels (hard and Oni mode) and modifiers (e.g.: hidden mode) will require much more as well as skill and chart recognization.

Successful play builds up a life meter, and if the meter is past a certain point by the end of the song, the song is passed.


As seen in this blog post, development starts at May 20, 2010 by the Taiko team. They started by modifying Taiko no Tatsujin 13.[2]
