Taiko Drum Master: V Version adds Mega Man 2 song for early buyers

Plus, new characters Violia and Rough Breaker introduced.

Taiko Drum Master: V Version

Bandai Namco has confirmed the third song part of its Taiko Drum Master: V Version early purchase campaign. “Dr. Wily Stage 1” from Mega Man 2 joins the previously announced “Tutti!” from Sound! Euphonium and Vodcaloid song “Uchouten Vivace” by Last Note, which will be available to consumers who purchase the game between July 9 and August 31.

Outside of the new pre-order song announcement, Bandai Namco also announced two new characters for the rhythm game’s RPG-like “Donda Quest” mode.

Violia is the knight-looking older sister of the heroine Maple. The people of the village trust and rely on her. While she’s normally level-headed, she can get heated when it comes to her sister.

Rough Breaker is one of the boss enemies you’ll battle on your journey. Your battle with Rough Breaker will be to a new song to the Taiko Drum Master series, so expect it to be considerably difficult.

Taiko Drum Master: V Version is due out for PS Vita on July 9 in Japan. A demo is currently available on the PlayStation Store.
