Here at Hardcore Gamer, we love us some Hatsune Miku. Despite having shelves of various Miku figma, we also own, and have imported, most of the virtual pop-stars gaming endeavors. Thus, when Sega announced today that their 3DS series, Project MIRAI, is coming stateside next year, we got just a tiny bit excited. To then hear that it’s coming in the form of the second game, and not the first, our ears perked up even more.
Entitled “Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI Remix,” the localization will be an enhanced version of MIRAI 2, which is a rhythm game in the vein of last year’s PlayStation 3 title, Project Diva F. According to the press release from this morning, Remix will be a highly customizable experience with user customization options for button icons and sounds, character costumes and gear for character rooms (again, similar to what Diva F offered). Players will then be able to create and share personalized player cards in addition to customized dance routines, musical phrases and personalized comments — all of which can be shared via StreetPass. The title will also utlize AR cards and photo capabilities to “bring characters to life in 3D.”
This all should be exciting seeing as we’ve yet to receive a Miku game on 3DS here in the States. In fact, we’ve only been able to play these games via mobile means or Sony consoles. Thus, having the beloved pop icon in the palm of our Nintendo hand, is something we’re personally looking forward to. Nevertheless, Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI Remix is slated for a 2015 release, though no further window or date was revealed.
