Taiko no Tatsujin: Session de Dodon ga Don! (太鼓の達人 セッションでドドンがドン!) is a upcoming Taiko no Tatsujin game for the PlayStation 4. It was stated to be released in 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.

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.


The core gameplay is mostly the same as recent Taiko no Tatsujin game releases. Session de Dodon go Don!, however, includes a new mode: The Session Mode.

In this mode, player will plays the songs with the 'ghost play' data from other friends in the online-only Friend Session Play (requires PlayStation Plus subscription.) and plays the songs with guest characters in the single-player-only Guest Session Play.

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.

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