The much anticipated SNOW MIKU LIVE! 2018 official video is now live on Youtube! This is the second SNOW MIKU LIVE! performance since 2015, and we’re most excited to see Snow Miku’s appearance returns in the show. Three encore songs for this live features Snow Miku appearances from different years, one of which is covered in this video.

The five-minutes concert footage features the theme song for this year “Round off the Square Earth” by TOKOTOKO (NishizawasanP) starring Snow Miku 2018 herself, while the second half features the song Rolling Girl by wowaka. The Rolling Girl performance utilizes a real-time 3DCG control system “R3” developed by Crypton Future Media allowing a level of interaction with the audience as seen in the video.

Check out the official video below, or watch it now on Nicovideo!
