WTMG's Aaron Price: "Taiko No Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival is another welcome addition to the drum hero series. With so many different styles of songs to pick from, and not just having to play song after song with no variety, it’s one of the easiest versions of the series to pick up and play. Whether or not the music pass will be worth it in the long run is to be seen, but at launch you’re looking at an additional five hundred songs for Rhythm Festival, some of which are from previous games, some not. Hopefully Bandai Namco will continue to put out updates of their socials about songs being added. As a whole though, Rhythm Festival would be a great starting point for anyone new getting into the Taiko No Tatsujin games, and is very welcome on the Nintendo Switch as a very simple pick up and play game."
