It’s only been four months since the release of the first Miku Flick game for iPhone, which proved to be a largely popular success with it’s international release on the iTunes market. SEGA has just announced and is preparing to roll out the next game in the series, Miku Flick 2.
The new game will offer 10 new songs, 3 less than the previous game. 9 songs will be available from the start, while the 10th song remains an unlockable mystery, although some suspect it will be Hatsune Miku no Gekishou (The Singing Passion of Hatsune Miku). The known songs are:
Love is War
Hajimete no Oto
Butterfly On Your Right Shoulder
Just Be Friends
The game will cost less (900 JPY for Miku Flick 2, versus 1200 JPY for the first). This should also translate to a cheaper prices on the international stores. The first game launched with a price of $15 USD, which has since dropped to just $11. So if you haven’t played it yet, you can grab it here. The launch date for Miku Flick 2 is not yet announced. The minimum supported devices include the iPhone 3GS (8GB not supported), iPod Touch 3nd gen (8GB not supported), and the iPad.
Winning Snow Miku 2013 Design Announced
In unrelated news, how many of you have heard the announcement of the new Snow Miku 2013 design? The contest on Piapro had a few very interesting finalist designs, and the winner comes as quite a surprise. This will be the biggest change to the Snow Miku design to date, which shows Miku fully adorned in a traditional kimono.
This is the winning Snow Miku 2013 design.
This will certainly lead to some challenges for SEGA, Crypton, and Goodsmile Company’s design teams, but it will be interesting to see the products that result from the design. To show just how big the change is, I found two images of similar styles that compares the 2012 and 2013 versions side-by-side.
