Visit the arcade and play Namco's drum simulator.

Taiko Drum Master, Namco Bandai’s ten year-old drum simulator franchise, will be playable in Yakuza 5, Sega’s upcoming gangster sequel for PlayStation 3, Famitsu reveals this week.

Visit the game’s arcade in your spare time, and you’ll find Taiko Drum Master ready to play, including songs such as “Mappy Ondo,” “Yumeiro Nijiiro Taiko Iro,” and “Shinsekai Yori.”

Yakuza 5 is due for PlayStation 3 this December in Japan.

Thanks, Re: Gigen.

    Can I play the drums with move?

    I love Sega for including fresh ideas after 6 Ryuu ga Gotoku titles (1-4 + Kenzan + Of the End). I hope they release a localized version of Kenzan for the western fans alongside an international release of the RGG 1+2 HD collection so anybody can appreciate Shenmue’s spiritual successor in its entirety. 
    This series is getting better and better. With the imminent release of Sleeping Dogs and this Yakuza drama/brawler/Idol simulator I’m wondering: What was GTA again?
