It’s been a while since we heard news regarding Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone for PS4, but SEGA hasn’t forgotten about the game! They recently announced that 10 songs will be updated to add Extra Extreme difficulties in a free patch that will be distributed on April 19th to Project Diva Future Tone, as well as Project Diva Future Tone DX. Here’s the songs getting the update!


Future Sound Pack: Love Words, The Intense Voice of Hatsune Miku, Magnet, Rolling Girl


Colorful Tone Pack: Jugemu Sequencer, Soiyassa!!, Time Limit, Hanamai Tsukuyomi Tan, Mousou Sketch, Leia

Of course, if you purchased both packs in Future Tone, or picked up the DX version of the game, all of the above songs will be updated automatically when you launch the game while connected to the PlayStation Network. The update also notes some stability and bug fixes.

This update announcement currently applies to the Japanese version of the game, and news regarding the update for Western releases is still pending. We’ll keep you posted!

Many excited owners took to twitter to share their photos and videos of Gatebox Miku’s transformation, a couple of which we’ve shared below. It’s currently unknown how long she will remain like this. But like sakura tree blossoms, enjoy your Sakura Miku while she lasts, she might not be around for long!

The “Hey MIKU!” Alexa app released to the Amazon Alexa store in Japan last November has been upgraded to improve its overall interaction and functionality. She’s also now able to sing!

The update coincides Amazon Echo’s March 30th general launch in Japan. Am,azon Echo smart speaker hardware, and thus, the Hey MIKU! app, had limited access to users in Japan until this release. Hopefully they will have worked out some of her quirks with this update. Note that using this app requires a Japanese Amazon account.
