We’ve been waiting for this ever since we saw this game demoed at Snow Miku 2017: Hatsune Miku VR will be coming to PC via the Steam VR platform in Spring 2018 for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift! The game comes via collaboration with Crypton Future Media and Degica Co.

The “Action Rhythm Game” uses VR controls, and allows you to watch Miku dance as you play the game. It will launch with 8 initial songs with 2 levels of difficulty each. Additional songs are planned to be added later!

The game will be available in English, Japanese and Chinese. Additional info will be announced at a later date. Check out the official Hatsune Miku VR site! → http://promo.degicagames.com/vr/

There is no such thing as “Too Much Miku”, as it simply increases the amount of adorableness and fun. This is especially true for for Tac’s latest MikuMikuDance video, titled “Are You Going To Visit Hatsune Miku?”.

The video is a sequel to Tac’s previous popular work, “LET’S GO SEE MIKU!” (watch here → https://youtu.be/_zjjtkCFkeI), and follows up on Mariel’s previous visit to the mansion of Hatsune Miku(s). She plans to visit them again, but first she tries to explain her previous venture to her friends, and convince them it’s perfectly safe (and that she isn’t crazy).

Watch the video from Tac’s official channel below! Official channel link → https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCD2gA4RLxNDgGMx97uVWQ5A/

Fun Fact: Tac says he used around 230 different Hatsune Miku MMD models for the creation of this video!

Two of the earliest and most well-known Vocaloid producers, OSTER project and Mitchie M, have paired up to produce a collaboration song like never before for Hatsune Miku 10th anniversary titled “Uta no Sumu Ie ~Maison Hatsune~“. The sweet and cheerful tone will catch you off guard to the beats, while the realistic vocal tuning makes a very great pair to the music.

The collaboration song will be available as part of the Magical Mirai 2017 Blu-ray and DVD Hatsune Miku 10th anniversary edition to be released on January 10th. Check out the music video below, or watch it on Nicovideo.
