The official Snow Miku 2018 info site released quite a few news updates on December 15th, here’s a quick summary of those updates!

An added benefit of visitors attending the exhibition at the Sapporo Factory Hall on February 10th~11th are these collectable charms, one of three different designs chosen at random. You can re-enter the venue to get additional pieces, if you like.

Crypton’s music label KarenT will be distributing this year’s special Snow Miku themed album titled “Nocturne of Snow Light”, priced at 1,200 Yen at the venue. It’ll come with the following tracks:

01. 四角い地球を丸くする / TOKOTOKO(西沢さんP) feat. 初音ミク <SNOW MIKU 2018テーマソング>
02. ひとりぼっちとココロの本と / PIPPO feat. 初音ミク
03. メルヘンスノーマン / RUBY-CATMAN feat. 初音ミク
04. 三冬月。雨と0時 / キョータ(スコアP) feat. 初音ミク
05. カノープスが落ちた夜 / さまぐら feat. 初音ミク
06. アイビィ / ジグ feat. 初音ミク
07. Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya! (Wafooooooo Remix) / daniwellP feat. 初音ミク <bonus track>

Similar to last year, the Dinos amusement centers and theaters will be participating in goods giveaways at their arcades, bowling alleys and movie theaters. These festivities begin December 23rd, and run until February 28th. As examples, you can win a free magnet with one of 8 different designs every time you spend at least 500 yen on a participating prize machine. Just contact a staff member before you insert the money!

At Dinos Bowling (ディノスボウル), you can get a free Snow miku mug with the purchase of a bowling game for just 2,500 Yen, with 4 designs to choose from. You can also collect a 5th design at the Dinos Cinemas (ディノスシネマズ) for 2,000 Yen, which also comes with a soft drink.

Lastly, you can collect 1 of 3 different Snow Miku calendars, and a silicone watch, from crane games as prices! Try your luck!

There will also be a screening of the Magical Mirai 2017 concert at the Dinos Cinemas, but if the event is like last year, they wont plan to make the tickets available to overseas visitors. We’ll post updates if this changes.

The official Snow Miku 2018 main visual is finally here, and now live on the official site! Following the theme of “Animals” this year, the Snow Miku 2018 designed by Taichadon is in a shrine maiden costume with red-crown crane as a motif. She stands amidst the snowy night of Hokkaido clouded in a mysterious yet alluring atmosphere.  The main visual is brought to you by the illustrator Yasumo.

In addition to the main visual reveal, the official site update also brought us an announcement for the live performance “SNOW MIKU LIVE! 2018”.  The live performance, which will be held on February 9th~10th, will have daytime and night performances for each days at Zepp Sapporo. Ticket details will follow at later date.

It’s been almost 3 years since the last SNOW MIKU LIVE! in 2015, and that last time Snow Miku herself even showed up to perform. Perhaps something similar will also happen this time?

Daytime performance open 13:00, start 14:00
Night performance open 18:00, start 19:00

The Snow Miku festival 2018 will be held on February 5th~12th, 2018 in Sapporo, Hokkaido. Are you ready for Snow Miku 2018? Stay tuned for more details, or checkout our visit to the last year’s event in the meanwhile!
