Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session! (Japanese: 太鼓の達人 セッションでドドンがドン!, Taiko no Tatsujin: Sesshon de Dodon Ga Don!) is a upcoming Taiko no Tatsujin game for the PlayStation 4. It was stated to be released on October 26, 2017.

It was the first Taiko no Tatsujin game to be released on a PlayStation home console since Doka! to Oomori Nanadaime on PlayStation 2 and the 4th game to be released on a 8th-generation home video game console, following Atsumete★Tomodachi Daisakusen! on Nintendo Wii U. It is the second Taiko no Tatsujin game to be released in Traditional Chinese since V Version, the second game to release in Korean since Don and Katsu's Space-time Adventure! and the second game to release in English since Taiko Drum Master.

As usual for a Taiko no Tatsujin game on consoles, it comes in either just the game itself or the bundle with TaTaCon controller for the retail version.

Gameplay

The core gameplay is mostly the same as recent Taiko no Tatsujin game releases. Drum Session!, however, includes a new mode: The Session Modes.

In those gameplay modes, player will plays the songs with the 'ghost play' data from other friends in the online-only Friend Session Play mode (PlayStation Plus subscription is not required.) and plays the songs with guest characters in the single-player-only Guest Session Play mode.

Also included is the online-only Taiko Ranking Match, in which the player is playing against Donders from around Japan and the player's rank will raise if the player win and will drop down if he/she lose. The usual Training performance mode and the new Best Replay performance mode are also included.

Many of the customization elements from recent Taiko no Tatsujin arcades, such as title customization, were also introduced. Player can earns the Don kobans by completing the missions listed in the Mission Bingo menu and use them to unlock songs and customize parts.

New to this game is the Kozuchi note, which works similar to the Fuusen balloon note as seens in the mobile games. It also supports local multiplayer up to two players.

With Drum Session!, player can obtain the DLC songs by either purchases the Donder Packs individually or the online season pass from the PlayStation Store.

Starting with this game, the J-POP genre was now renamed to Pops.
