Starting this December, any Hatsune Miku fans visiting the New Chitose airport in Japan for the Winter will be able to visit a sort of Snow Miku exhibition-type event called the “Snow Miku Sky Town”, which will be held in the terminal 4 domestic area.

The Snow Miku Sky Town will have 3 attractions for tourists, which consists of the following:

The museum area is planned to have a life-sized Snow Miku statue on display, along with various Snow Miku goods and artworks. Check it out and learn more about the history of Snow Miku!

This special theater area offers a 360 degree viewing experience of the beautiful landscape of Hokkaido!

Find exclusive shop-only goods that can’t be found anywhere else!

The exact date of the launch is not yet announced, and neither is the ending date. So be sure to keep an eye out for updates. Visit the official Snow Miku Sky Town website here: http://snowmiku.com/skytown/

In the meantime, the New Chitose airport seems to be celebrating early, as the digital signs throughout the location are showing various Hatsune Miku illustrations, while also playing music. Many videos of these can be found on twitter, and below is one example from @kno2502. You can also see all illustrations listed here: http://piapro.jp/pages/official_collabo/2014cts/result

Western Release of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd to Support Japanese Save Data Importing

Filed under: Hatsune Miku,Merchandise,Miku News,Videogames — Written by jrharbort on Saturday, November 15th, 2014 @ 2:43 pm

A surprising game feature was revealed today for the Western release of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd, just mere days before the game is set to release. The announcement came not from SEGA themselves, but early game reviewers who received test copies of the game. Which is surprising, considering how huge this feature is.

The Western release of Project Diva F 2nd will support the importing of save data from the Japanese version of the game, via the cross-save feature over the PlayStation Network. This is good news for those of you who already purchased the Japanese version, and also plan to get the Western version!

To use the feature, simply select “Import” from the main menu, where you will be taken to a screen detailing the import process. Once completed, just load your save data from the main menu and play! Feature confirmed via justonegamr on YouTube. Below are images showing the save data import process.

As a reminder, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd is scheduled to release in North America on November 18th, and in Europe on November 21st for both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
