Taiko no Tatsujin Competition


Do you have what it takes to Drum up a trip to Japan?

The 'Taiko no Tatsujin' drumming arcade games in your local Kingpin are hosting an International qualifiers competition on March 9th at 6pm.

When is it on?

March 9th 2024. From 2pm-5pm all participating venues will let you play the game for FREE as many times as you like to DRUM UP some pre-comp practice and then the registration and official tournament will begin at 6pm!

Who can participate?

Anyone with a Bandai Namco passport! You can pick up one when you get in-venue so don't worry about that part. The competition only has 20 spots available so it will be a lucky draw to figure out who plays in the final!

Which venues will be participating?

Kingpin Canberra (ACT)

Kingpin Chermside (QLD)

Kingpin Crown Melbourne (VIC)

Kingpin North Strathfield (NSW)

How do I get myself to Japan?

To win 1 of 5 spots available internationality for a trip to Japan it's simple; WIN, duh! Your score will need to be the highest in-venue on the day as well as compared to all other venues across the world during the competition period to win the trip. 

However, we will have a certificate for our 1st & 2nd place winners on the day at each venue and a small gift for winning in the qualifying comp!

Taiko Qualifiers Competition March 9th

So book in your visit for March 9th here and get ready to DRUM for your life!

(Jks, for legal purposes no lives should be lost whilst drumming, please behave)
