Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun!
A legendary Japanese saga that finally landed in the West under the title Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘N’ Fun!, a remarkable rhythm game that rescues many mythical video game melodies, as well as anime series and with numerous references to Japanese culture. Its simple gameplay makes it a lot of fun, regardless of your ability.
To play properly, the latest installment of Taiko no Tatsujin relies on the Nintendo Switch gyroscope (motion sensor), and also on the Taiko (drum) peripheral. The downside is that you have to buy it separately.but otherwise it’s a varied music game with tons of mini-games and hundreds of songs, many added as DLC.

Sayonara Wild Hearts
The ”buenrollismo” made video game. Sayonara Wild Hearts is a frantic action adventure that is a shot of adrenaline In your day to day. It is not excessively long, and as if it were an album, each new song introduces different playable mechanics, although always trying to achieve the maximum score. And all the themes are very good, we already warned you.
In Sayonara Wild Hearts there is no time to breathe: as soon as we go on a skateboard like a motorcycle or flyingfighting against enemies or running through the woods like a deer. There are chases through narrow streets, levels of car driving and tons of action. All topped off with a very personal and attractive aesthetic. A jewel to claim.

Tetris Effect: Connected
The most legendary puzzle game of all time is back… and with an unbeatable version on Nintendo Switch. Tetris Effect: Connected is the same game that won us over decades ago, but with a handful of new features (like a “zone” mode that lets you create bigger line combos), as well as being an excellent rhythm game.
Tetris Effect: Connected will be liked even by those who hate Tetris. There are tons of levels available, with a varied visual spectacle and a techno soundtrack that fits like a glove. Sometimes you will be entranced in front of the screen, and it is totally logical. More than a game, a sensory experience.

The Artful Escape
A masterpiece of the musical genre. The Artful Escape is not a rhythm game as such, but a great music story which has such recognized voices (in its dubbing) as Lena Headey, Caroline Kinley, Michael Johnston, Carl Wheaters or Mark Strong. He will catch you from the first second.
In the skin of the musician Francis Vendetti, who is about to give his first performance, we will have to face the legacy of a folk legend, but also with our own imagination… that reaches the cosmos. We do not want to reveal anything more to you. Just play it.

Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory
It seems incredible that an RPG saga would go to music games (something that also happens in another game on this list), but it was. Square Enix launched Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory in 2020, a spin-off of the saga that focuses solely and exclusively on its instrumental soundtrack.
And the result was spectacular. Not only is it one of the best Kingdom Hearts, but in terms of plot it also gives its best. The best thing is its extraordinary soundtrack, full of great themes, as well as Kairi’s narration. A gem of the genre.

Crypt of the NecroDancer
We could mention again Cadence of Hyrule, the wonderful Nintendo Switch exclusive spin-off starring Link and Zelda. However, we are left with the original work, Crypt of the NecroDancer, a gem of the rhythm game genre a cargo de Brace Yourself Games.
At its core it’s a roguelike, or even a dungeon crawler, but soundtrack by Danny Baranowsky invites us to his original musical proposal. In Crypt of the NecroDancer you will have to defeat enemies, solve puzzles and explore dungeons while following the rhythm. And it works wonderfully well.

Halfway between an “endless runner” and a rhythm game, Thumper became one of the big surprises in the PS4 and PS VR catalogue. The Drool studio (formed by former developers of Guitar Hero and Rock Band) gives the bell with this great runner that is even better on Nintendo Switch.
And Thumper we control a chrome beetle, who runs through each stage at full speed while dodging obstacles, defeating gigantic creatures and, above all, trying not to waste all his energy taking damage. We already anticipate that it does not leave any respite, but it is certainly worth it.
Theathrhythm Final Bar Line
We end with the most recent game on the list, which also takes references from a legendary role-playing saga: Final Fantasy. Thus comes Theathrythm Final Bar Line, an excellent rhythm game that rescues the best musical themes from the Square Enix saga (385 as standard, more than 500 with the DLC). and it is also the best tribute for its 35th anniversary.
