    There is essentially no public information about this game yet. Asking for the name of a music style never before seen in Star Wars is a bit... hopeful.

  • Well, we do know at least wreckpunk was popular within this era by fringers, but I don’t think this is an example of that music genre. Dec 11, 2021 at 4:43

Japanese Taiko drumming. I note there are Japanese style costumes in the trailer as well.

    If you're certain there's no in-universe name you should edit that in.
