Recent buzz has been circulating about SEGA of Japan’s interest in bringing Project Diva Arcade (or some version of it) to select home consoles, and they have opened a poll on their own DIVA.NET site to gauge interest from fans.

The idea is intriguing, as SEGA has expressed in the past that they were interested in making a game similar to Project Diva Arcade for the PS4, due to its new touch-enabled controller. But simply porting the full Arcade game to home consoles could negatively impact the popularity of the actual arcade units. So SEGA might be considering some other kind of idea.

Many sites seem to have excluded how to vote from their own news publications, so we’re happy to help with that. Please note that voting requires a DIVA.NET account (which requires proper registration with your Project Diva Arcade card). There is a 300vp reward for completing the survey. Voting ends April 24th (JST)!

Recent News Roundup: April 1st Edition (Happy April Fools!)

Filed under: Hatsune Miku,Megurine Luka,Miku News,Project Diva,Software,Videogames — Written by jrharbort on Tuesday, March 31st, 2015 @ 10:27 pm

Happy April 1st, everyone! Today also marks the 7th anniversary of Kasane Teto, who was originally revealed as a “Vocaloid” on April Fools day as a prank in 2008, but actually turned out to be for the newly-announced UTAU software.

While other sites are busy having fun with April Fools, we’ll focus on covering the news event from the past few days. To start, the 3DCG artist Kasoku Sato, best known for creating the movies and models for Mitchie M’sBurenai ai de” and Digi-eye, has teased a Sakura Miku edition of his Hatsune Miku model on twitter.

This could be just for fun, or we may expect to see a Sakura Miku-themed collab with this model and Rhoto’s Digi-Eye AR app. Or perhaps a new Sakura Miku-themed PV altogether?

The Magical Mirai 2015 website updated yesterday to reveal the new main event artwork (by Hoshima), along with the concept art sketches (by Shikimi). The new design seems to take a lot of inspiration from last year’s Magical Mirai 2014 artwork, but still feels new and fresh. Further event information is still TBA. Event website: http://magicalmirai.com/2015/index_en.php

Cute miniature Hatsune Miku and Shiteyan’yo plushies, created by TAITO, were announced as available machine prizes (likely from SEGA UFO catcher machines). The plushies come in 3 varieties with Miku holding an even smaller Shiteyan’yo. The plushies seem to continue from a previous collaboration, where even smaller miniature figures with the same theme were released. Location availability list: https://www.taito.co.jp/prize/item/0000000269

Lastly, Senbonzakura-themed ball-chain figures were announced by TAITO, also as a machine prize. They are available from the listed locations: https://www.taito.co.jp/prize/item/0000000270


 
While seeming like a prank at first, this comes as real news: SEGA has made the Mikudayo mask/head accessory available for Project Diva Arcade Future Tone, and is available starting today (April 1st) with a cost of 1500vp (and we repeat, this is not a joke!). Official announcement video below:

Crypton Future Media couldn’t resist having a little fun on April Fools this year, and has “announced” the company’s own CEO, Hiroyuki Itoh, to have his own VOCALOID V4X software release. A demo clip is even provided on the site. While not actually real, it does serve as an interesting joke to push people to purchase the new Megurine Luka V4X software instead. The “purchase” button for Hiroyuki Itoh V4X simply “runs away” when you attempt to click it (to repeat, this is a prank).
