After two years of waiting, and several teases at the Wonder Festival events, the Hatsune Miku: Tell Your World ver. 1/8 scale figure is now available for preorder!

This particular figure’s design is based on the original jacket illustration for “Tell Your World EP” album. The song was also featured in an award winning Google Chrome advert in 2011.

SEGA Reveals Hatsune Miku Project Mirai Remix Details Via Project Mirai Deluxe Announcement

Filed under: Hatsune Miku,Merchandise,Miku News,Videogames — Written by jrharbort on Tuesday, September 16th, 2014 @ 11:19 am


 
Today is a day where fans anticipating the release of Project Mirai Remix for the West are finally getting some information about the game, although not from the source we expected. Despite being announced over 2 months earlier in the West, the details for “Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai Remix” for the Nintendo 3DS were first released by SEGA of Japan yesterday, via an announcement for the Japanese version of the game titled “Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai Deluxe”. They are essentially the same game with two different titles.

While we wait for an official press release from SEGA of America, here’s what we do know about both games: All new 3D promotional and opening videos are being created for the new title, with the opening theme being composed by PinocchioP. The game will be exhibited at the Tokyo Game Show event that takes place between September 18th~21st JST. More details about the game itself are expected to be released in the October 2nd & 9th combo issue of Kadokawa’s Famitsu magazine releasing on Thursday.

The release date of Project Mirai Deluxe is announced for Spring 2015, while Project Mirai Remix is is still dated for an unknown period in 2015.

Lastly, SEGA is also due to announce an all new SEGA feat. Hatsune Miku Project game title at the Tokyo Game Show later this week. It is a new working title, unrelated to the news of Project Mirai Remix/Deluxe.

EDIT: It seems there was misinformation and confusion caused by lack of updated description info by both SEGA and Nicovideo. There is no additional game project, and Project Mirai Deluxe is indeed the all new project title.

The remaining features on the Georgia feat. Hatsune Miku collaboration site have gone live, revealing the last unknown details of the event. As well as some surprises. If you missed the previous news post, read here>>.

The first update is regarding the final details for the AR application. Surprisingly, instead of creating their own application, Georgia Coffee has partnered with Crypton Future Media to feature the Georgia Coffee ver. Koron Miku model, along with motion data and other accessories, inside the Hatsune Miku AhR application. This also marks the first release of the application on Android! It requires Android 4.1 or newer and compatible hardware, so some devices may be read as “incompatible”, unfortunately. Learn more about Miku AhR here>>.

> Download Hatsune Miku AhR for Android
> Download Hatsune Miku AhR for iOS


 
The AR performance for the Koron Miku model features the song “Heart A La Mode” by Deco*27, with an outfit design by iXima, and motion by Yumiko. To permanently unlock Georgia Miku accessories (motion data, model shelves, etc), you need to input the serial code from the pop topper of a can of Georgia Emerald Mountain Shifuku no Bitou, as described in our previous news article. Each code can only be used once.

However, you can enjoy the AR mode and download the model itself freely by launching the Miku AhR app, then going to the info tab and pressing the pink “AR Live” button. After pointing your device’s camera at the AR marker below, the model should now be unlocked! You will still need a serial code to unlock the proper accompanying motion/music data, but the model itself is now freely usable.

The details of the “Limited Hatsune Miku Picture Record” have also been released. It is a vinyl record featuring art of Hatsune Miku, illustrated by Oguchi, printed to the record itself. The record contains 2 tracks on each side, and is also bundled with a CD that contains 6 tracks. As a reminder, only 1,000 of these will be awarded to people who submit three unqiue serial codes to the Georgia Miku site.

MikuColle RPG Launching Late September, Global Release Plans Announced

Hatsune Miku Graphy Collection Mystery Music Comet or, in short, “MikuColle”, is a RPG app developed by Crypton Future Media. The app runs with a plot where a sudden appearance of mysterious music note-shaped comet causes all sound in the world to be lost. You and Miku will advance together on a remarkable journey to redeem the lost sound. Taiwan and global releases have been announced to come after the release in Japan in late September this year.

Players will advance through stages to collect the lost songs. The background music in the game will be uncompleted at first (due to the mysterious music comet). Players will face “Cards Battle” against monsters during the journey in order to collect lost notes and proceed further on. As you continue to collect more notes in the stage, the faint background music will slowly become completed.

Players will be equipped with a deck of illustrations as weapons against monsters. Illustration cards all vary in terms of power and illustrators. This is a concept derived from the currently existing mobile app from Crypton Future Media named “Hatsune Miku Graphy Collection”, and this game is a sequel/upgrade to the existing app.

The app supports Android and iOS devices running on Android 4.0 and iOS 7.0 or above. Visit the official website here: http://www.crypton.co.jp/mikucolle_app/index_pc.php
