New Taiko Drum Master Has Yakuza and Hatsune Miku Tie-ups


Two new Taiko Drum Master collaborations to report on today, one bizarre and the other... well, the collaborations are both pretty bizarre when you realize that they have a taiko wearing wigs.

Sega and Namco Bandai are teaming up to add a little bit of Yakuza Of the End and Hatsune Miku Project Diva 2nd to Taiko Drum Master DX, the upcoming PSP Taiko game (due for release on 7/14).

The result is this:

You can probably recognize Hatsune Miku's hair. The Yakuza tie-up hat is the front gate from the game's neon city of Kamurocho.

In addition to the special outfits for Don-chan (that's the taiko guy's name), the two Sega titles will lend some of their most recognizable songs. From Yakuza Of the End comes Machine Gun Kiss. From Hatsune Miku Project Diva 2nd comes Hatsune Miku no Gekisyo.

Outrun's Magical Sound Shower song will also appear in the game, but unfortunately without a collaborative costume.
