With the mobile game Hatsune Speed: Hatsune Miku Roller Skating Music now released in China, here’s a quick guide detailing how to download, register an account, and login to play the game from almost anywhere in the world.

Keep in mind the game is still in open beta, so the servers and game often go down for maintenance and updates. Feel free to contribute any extra gameplay details and guides in the comments below!

Step 1: Download the game

First go to http://miku.163.com, and download and install the game using the pink button, as shown on the image above. Please note Android users may have to enable ‘allow installation from unknown sources’. iOS users may need to register a Chinese Apple ID.

Step 2: Register a dummy @163.com email

Because China often only allows site and game registrations using China-based email addresses, we need to set up a quick @163.com email address, which is easy and takes only a minute by following the image above. Use a valid mobile phone number! To get to the registration page, go here (if using mobile, force the browser into “desktop mode”): http://reg.email.163.com/

Step 3: Login to the game

Now load up the game, and then you can login using the email you just registered by clicking the icon above! This is highly recommended for keeping track of your game progress across multiple devices, otherwise all your data may be lost if you choose to play using a temporary account.

Enjoy the game, and please feel free to contribute any useful tips and guides in the comments below!

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
