Taiko Drum Master

Postby Just Like Honey... » Fri Dec 10, 2004 9:54 pm

i made an interesting discovery today while reading the news at work..

remember in the arcade scene with the ever so cool kid riffin away on the dummy electric guitar, complete with cigarette and falling ash?
of course you do..
and the kid that was ever-so-enthusiastically banging on the plastic drum game, while being cheered on by the little noodle-like guys?

the drum game featured in that scene has now been released in north america, under the name taiko drum master. it even comes with a drum just like the one in the film! :D
as a true LiT fan this may be one thing i wont be able to resist... :P
check out the article on the Globe & Mail website.. it even mentions the reference to the game in LiT :)

PS: Sorry about the lack of caps and punctuation, but ill probably be fired if im caught doing this at work :twisted:

Happy Drumming! 8)
I'd rather be a gear in a big, deterministic, physical machine than just some random swerving.

I work at a Call Centre for Rogers Wireless.. we can get a spanking for going on non-preapproved websites during work.. probably so we dont guck up their computers with spyware or something... :lol:
