Stay fit with Taiko no Tatsujin this Winter! New Game Mode – “DON DON Fitness”

Stay fit with Taiko no Tatsujin this Winter! DON DON Fitness is different from the traditional Taiko Mode, as notes shoot across the screen to you. Imagine a big Japanese Taiko drum in front of you and hit the notes by swinging your Joy-Con™ when the notes overlap with the 4 targets! You can get higher scores if you swing the Joy-Con™ in larger swings! Move your body and aim for that high score!
You can even check the estimated calories burnt for a song, and your total calories burned after play!
*The number of "calories burnt" calculated in this mode is based on the intensity of motion, the number of notes per song and the length of the song, and is provided for reference only. Actual calorie spend may differ due to differences in body weight, arm motion etc.
*In DON DON Fitness, you need to swing your arms a lot when you perform. Don't forget to check your surroundings before you start playing!
