The Snow Miku Sky Town exhibition event started today at New Chitose airport, to the delight of many eagerly awaiting fans. Thanks to them, we have the first photos of some of the event’s attractions. Some of these include the life-sized Snow Miku statue, as well as the special Snow Miku AR stage for Hatsune Miku AhR.
Up first are some photos of the Snow Miku life-sized statue, thanks to @kno2502 and @phaius66 on twitter.
Second, we have photos of the AR stage (thanks to @phaius66), which is designed to be used with Hatsune Miku AhR to trigger a special live performance, and also unlock a special Snow Miku model! To make the performance work, you must launch the app, then go to the “info” page, then tap the “ARモード” button. Give it a few seconds to load, point it at the marker and enjoy!
Hint: Try using the photo to watch the performance on the app!
The opening date of the Snow Miku Sky Town exhibition event at the New Chitose airport has finally been announced for December 20th! To learn about previously announced details, please read our previous article.
Along with the launch date, the opening commemoration events have been announced. These include:
■ An exhibition display of the Snow Miku edition Daihatsu Mira Cocoa.
■ A special AR stage for Hatsune Miku AhR, which takes advantage of a hidden surprise added to the ver.220.127.116.11 update.
■ A “three-dimensional painted picture” of Snow Miku, exclusively for Sky Town. (The naming of this has me curious.)
■ Papercraft production activities.
■ A large selection of shop-exclusive goods. Please view all available items here: http://snowmiku.com/skytown/goods.html
The above events will take place at the Terminal 2F(Domestic) center plaza, while the previously announced events and exhibitions will still take place at Terminal 4F (Domestic). The hours of operation are 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM for Terminal 2F, and 10:00 AM until 8:00 PM for Terminal 4F.
The Snow Miku Sky Town events will come to a close at the end of December 25th, Christmas day.
Today’s announcement live stream from Good Smile Company brought us news many of us were waiting for, the details on Hatsune Miku: Ebata Risa Ver figure! She was first showcased at the Summer Wonder Festival in July, and now we’re finally getting more details on her. The figure will be available for preorder starting from December 24th. While the price and release date were not mentioned in the stream, we can expect to see them later on the preorder date.
Some of you may remember our previous announcement of the first round of Hatsune Miku V3 merchandise offered by COSPA. They have just announced a second wave of new Miku V3 merch, and since Kaito and Meiko have both since gotten their own V3 release, they also have goods included in this announcement!
The list of items include full-graphic T-shirts, tapestries and straps. The delivery time varies between February and March 2015, depending on the item. As a reminder, Japanese sizes differ from U.S. sizes. A Japanese XL is the same size as a U.S. Large, and a Japanese Medium is the same size as a U.S. Small, etc. Prorders don’t have an actual end date, and will close once the order limits are reached.

Two exciting artwork reveals came today for Hatsune Miku fans, with one coming far sooner than expected (details in a bit). The first of the two is the promotional artwork reveal for Snow Miku Live! 2015, the concert event scheduled to take place in Sapporo this February during the yearly Snow Miku festival.
The illustration was drawn by iXima, who is well known for being the official illustrator for Hatsune Miku V3. You can see many of Hatsune Miku’s V3 designs blended with what appears to be the classic Snow Miku 2010 look, with an added ahoge (hair spike) for extra cuteness.
Below is the official announcement tweet, and you can view the full illustration from the official Snow Miku site here.
The last reveal comes from Good Smile Racing, who gave us a teaser of the new Racing Miku 2015 design, an entire 2 months earlier than usual compared to previous years. The announcement first came from GSR’s press announcement earlier today, although a high quality image was later tweeted on GSR’s twitter (pictured below).
Only the backside of the design is visible for now, but a full reveal is promised to come sometime soon. The artist of the illustration is currently unrevealed, and has a lot of people guessing. Any ideas?
