Taiko no Tatsujin DS: Dororon! Yokai Great Decisive Battle! (Japanese: 太鼓の達人DS ドロロン! ヨーカイ大決戦!!, Taiko no Tatsujin Dīesu: Dororon! Youkai Daikessen!) is the 3rd and final Taiko no Tatsujin game released on Nintendo DS. It was released on July 1, 2010.

It borrows gameplay mechanics from both Taiko no Tatsujin DS: Touch de Dokodon! and Meccha! Taiko no Tatsujin DS: Great Adventure of the Seven Islands! . Like the previous installment, Dororon! Yokai Great Decisive Battle! features a story mode, and in this case it is known as 'Yokai Great Decisive Battle mode', and features a RPG-style gameplay.

The game features 51 songs, 13 of which are Namco Original songs.

Yokai Great Decisive Battle Mode Edit

Gameplay Edit

In Yokai Great Decisive Battle mode, the player controls Don in a RPG gameplay. When the player encounters an enemy, the taiko drum battle starts.

Like in Great Adventure of the Seven Islands, the player must hit the notes to deplete the enemy's health point, otherwise missing a note will deplete the player's HP. The player wins when the enemy's HP is completely depleted. Players can level up by gaining EXP via taiko drum battles. When leveling up, Don's HP, attack and defense stats will increase. Equipments such as head gears and clothes will also affect stats as well. In addition, some head gears like the bronze key can unlock special doors, depending on the type of door in question.

Plot Edit

One night while the sky had a full moon, Don and Katsu were standing outside of their house, watching the beautiful view of the night sky. Suddenly, Don heard a creepy crying voice, and he asked Katsu if it is his voice, but Katsu said he did not hear anything. Don think he must have misheard.

Then, the voice was heard again, and it was from inside the house, this time both Don and Katsu heard it and freaked out. Once they were inside, they saw the ghost of a raccoon-human girl. Said ghost said something like "Father, where are you?" while crying, and Don wondered if she was lost. Then she disappeared, and suddenly the door beside Don and Katsu opened up, revealing a portal and the Taiko duo were pulled into it.

When Don came out of the portal, he found himself alone in the forest of the Iga village in the Edo period of Japan. There, he saw the same raccoon-human girl, named Ponko, was going to searching her father on her own but the old ninja Master won't let her do so because the Yokai were targeting her. Don interrupted by asking Ponko if she is the same girl he saw before, but the Master mistook Don for a yokai and had a taiko battle against Don, from which Don coma out as a winner.

Master apologized to Don for mistaking him for a Yokai, but then a real Yokai (Wanyuudou, a flame wheel Yokai) appear edand saw the leaf-like hair ornaments on Ponko's hair, thinking that she is a Yokai and the DemonKing's daughter. But when he tried to get her, he couldn't stop himself flying, resulting in getting himself out of village empty handed.

Once in the house of the village, Master asked Don if he can defeats the Yokai across Japan. Don agreed, but just then Ponko asked Master if she could come with Don so she could search for her father. After a thought, Master agreed. And so the epic journey begins...
