Taiko no Tatsujin DS (太鼓の達人DS タッチでドコドン! Taiko no Tatsujin DS Touch de Dokodon?, lit. "Taiko Drum Master DS Touch and Play!") is a rhythm video game developed and published by Namco for the Nintendo DS handheld game console in July 26, 2007 in Japan. Like other Taiko games, the player plays the notes of a chosen song's drum part as they are displayed on the screen. The taiko drums can be played using the touch screen or the buttons.

Like the PlayStation Portable versions, Taiko no Tatsujin DS Touch de Dokodon has the ability to engage in 4 player wireless multiplayer. Players are now able to dress up and re-color the anthropomporphic taiko character Don.

Other modes[edit]

There is also a daily challenge mode, players can only do the challenge in one attempt, meaning the challenge will be postponed to the next day every time a player attempts to forfeit the challenge. The rank increasing or decreasing will determine on the player's best ability of gameplay. Anyone who succeeds may unlock new rewards, including songs and costumes.


  • The game includes two free styluses to be used as drumsticks, known as "Bachi Pen" (バチペン?).
  • The Oni difficulty is unlocked by clearing 20 songs on the hard difficulty.
  • A new note to fill in for the Yam note is the "Denden" note, this note is used to allow players to hit alternate parts of the taiko from don to kat continuously until the counter hits zero.
