Hatsune Miku (more commonly known in the west as Miku Hatsune) has a large following inside Japan, throughout Asia and increasingly in the West also. So it's no surprise that SEGA is bringing Miku's latest and greatest game to PS4 and PS Vita throughout the world.
Project Diva X will arrivea little earlier than originally expected on August 30th this year. The title was originally scheduled for Fall 2016.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X is a rhythm game and features Miku and 5 other vocaloid friends.
There a total of 30 tracks are included in the game. Of course no Japanese 'Idol' game of any kind would be complete without alternate outfits (aka modules) and accessories.
The game has a story mode, and Challenges for Miku to undertake. Home for Miku and friends is a central hub, where the vitual artists can hang out between performances. Project Diva X has 5 themed 'clouds' for Miku and her friends to explore.
These clouds are also the source of the challenges that Miku will face through the story mode of the game. 'Cloud Requests' will arrive and lead Miku and friends through unique challenges in each themed 'cloud'. Completing cloud requests earns 'voltage' which is needed to unlock new songs, modules and accessories. Modules may also unlock based on highly rated performances.
There is also the more traditional free play mode where the player can choose a song to perform.
A new feature provides a concert editor mode allowing the player to pick and choose the sones, arrangements, medleys and which modules/accessories are used along with which Vocaloids will accompany Miku. So, you budding concert producers out there can create your own concerts with Miku Hatsune.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X will be available on PS4 and PS Vita and arrives on August 30th.
I have to admit, I'm looking forward to this game. The concept of a virtual artist is intriguing, and brings a whole new world of meta-performance and puts it in the hands of anyone with the inclination to play.
