A recent image leak from various online retailers has revealed a “Deep Sea Girl” ver. Hatsune Miku plushie will be released in the 3rd week of September 2018, the same month as the song’s 8th anniversary!

The plushie measures 27cm tall, and is yet another entry in SEGA’s “Project Diva Future Tone” series of jumbo sized plushies. Try your hands at getting one in arcades later this year, or preorder her online when you see her available!

Hatsune Miku’s making a bigger splash into the Idol style game scene. A recent CM promotion for the popular Idol-style mobile game “Bang Dream! Girls Band Party!” announces an update to add more covers of various popular Hatsune Miku songs into the game’s mix. The commercial itself (above) also features Miku (model by Kasoku Sato) peeping in on a girl playing one of the game’s new cover songs for “Miku Miku Ni Shite Ageru“. Pretty cute!

The update currently applies only to the Japanese version of the game. The English version of the game only recently launched, so it’s unknown if it will also receive the update anytime soon. Bang Dream! is a mobile Idol/Rhythm style game available for Android and iOS, but only from their respective regions.

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!
