After nearly a year since the game was first announced, the China-developed “Hatsune Speed” mobile game will be hitting open beta on December 15th, much later than initially planned. But better late than never!

New images and promotional video footage (below) showcase what can be expected in the game. There’s an interactive room feature for each of the 6 Cryptonloids (similar to the Project Diva series), outfit customization, single and multiplayer options, and even some augmented reality features.


 
Accompanying the announcement is the release of the game’s theme song, titled Particle Story, composed by Mwk and Digger using Hatsune Miku V4 Chinese, with artwork by Asahi Kuroi.

The song is also available for free download in WAV and MP3 from poppro, China’s own newly launched version of piapro. Enjoy the music video below!

While the game will be launching on iOS and Android in China, but it’s still unknown if the game can be easily downloaded from other regions. We’ll post updates as soon as we find out further details.

Gatebox has released a new video update for their “Living With Hatsune Miku Project”, this time showing off their new model featuring the design by LEN[A-7]. Here she’s performing her welcome home greeting for her master.

They say the model is still in development, and the final look may be different. It’s pretty safe to say at this point that the earlier LAT model was just a temporary placeholder.

How would you enjoy having this Miku live with you in your everyday life with Gatebox?

For the first time in nearly 3 years, MikuMikuDance has received an update, although it’s actually a fairly small one. Specifically, the version 9.27 update fixes a mouse bug with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

If you run Windows 10, and encounter issues with the controls in MMD, be sure to grab the latest version from the official site! → http://www.geocities.jp/higuchuu4/index_e.htm

Nothing quite says “celebration” like a nice glass of bubbly, and why not celebrate Hatsune Miku’s 10th anniversary with some sparkling wine (non-alcoholic, of course!).

The 0.0% metallic sparkling wine made by Bodegas Copaboca Bodega and imported from Spain has Halal certification, a Muslim certification agency. The bottle comes turquoise colored, and is available in two different editions: Bottle-only, or a 10th Anniversary box set, which also includes a special glass made by Lehmann Glass, a french company.

The regular edition costs 3900 Yen, while the Box Set costs 7800 Yen. While Rakuten will only ship the item within Japan, you can order this item overseas by using the Tenso proxy, which also conveniently provides an address format for Rakuten. Grab both editions from the links below!
