There appears to be a slight hiccup somewhere between the Xbox app and Taiko itself, failing to recognise that you’re signed in with a Microsoft account. It’s throwing up an error on the title screen, not letting you advance until you’ve signed in—except you have to be signed in to boot the game up via Game Pass. You also can’t confirm in-game that you’re signed in, because you need to get past the title screen to do that. The whole thing is a bit of a stalemate.
Taiko no Tatsujin was released today on PC Game Pass and the Microsoft Store, but because to Bandai Namco’s surprising lack of marketing, no one would know. It’s a great rhythm game series, and it’s one of my favourites. However, don’t hurry to your computers to give it a try just yet, as the game is presently unplayable on PC.
Suggestion For You:
Both the Bandai Namco Europe Twitter and the official Japanese Taiko page have acknowledged that there’s an issue. “We are currently looking into a fix, and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause,” Bandai Namco tweeted. “Thank you for your understanding.” It’s a frustrating oversight, one that further dampens what little fanfare Taiko on PC has received. No timeline on the fix yet, but hopefully it’ll be soon so I can tell you all to go and play it.
A fresh writer in the industry, Mollie has been taken under PC Gamer’s RGB-laden wing, making sure she doesn’t get up to too much mischief on the site. She’s not quite sure what a Command & Conquer is, but she can rattle on for hours about all the obscure rhythm games and strange MMOs from the 2000s. She’s been cooking up all manner of news, previews and features while she’s been here, but especially enjoys when she gets to write about Final Fantasy, Persona, The Sims, and whatever other game she’s currently hopelessly fixated on. There’s a good chance she’s boring another PC Gamer writer about her latest obsession as we speak.
