Namco Bandai has announced that the two latest releases in the Taiko Drum Master have shipped 500,000 units in Japan. The news comes from Siliconera. The two games Taiko Drum Master: The Little Dragon and the Mysterious Orb (3DS) and Taiko Drum Master: Super Splendid Edition (Wii) were only released in Japan and prove that the rhythm genre isn't dead yet.

The games feature music from many popular franchises. The Wii title features music from Dragon Quest X, Monster Hunter Tri G and New Super Mario Bros. Wii. The 3DS title has music from SoulCalibur V, Tales of the Abyss, Tekken 3D Prime Editio, and even from the film My Neighbor Totoro.

Good enough for a Japanese only release, it is a bit of a shame I think this series has never gotten out of Japan besides imported arcade machines.
