Some big updates regarding Hatsune Miku Magical Mirai 2021 were posted to the official site, which covers the new main visual artwork, theme song, even ticket info and more! Here’s a quick recap of the announcements from June 21st. *Please note that overseas tickets are not being made available due to the ongoing pandemic situation in Japan.*

Main Visual by left

The theme of Magical Mirai 2021 is “Fairy Tale Fantasy“, with the main visual art being designed and drawn by left. Their participation in this year’s event also marks their first collaboration with [email protected] in 10 years. The artwork has a very floral and mythical atmosphere. There’s some concept sketches with costume details for those wanting to draw their own fanart, or even design a cosplay!

Theme Song “Hatsune Creation Myth” by [email protected]

Well recognized in the Hatsune Miku fan community, [email protected] is likely a welcome addition by many to the list of Magical Mirai theme song composers. A 15 second teaser CM for the event has been uploaded, featuring a segment of the theme song “Hatsune Creation Myth” playing in the background.

MIKULAND is making a return this Winter with Snow World 2021, and with it a new VR and AR amusement park experience! The virtual event will be held February 6th~7th 2021 via VirtualCast and HoloModels. The main visual art promoting this event was drawn by @choco_ikarashi.

What is MIKULAND?
The theme of “MIKULAND” is “somewhere near, in the near future”.
You can experience an official Hatsune Miku amusement park in VR and AR.
Using VR/AR apps, you can visit MIKULAND to experience the opening and ending ceremonies,
enjoy communicating with other users and purchase MIKULAND original merchandise.

Much of last Summer’s MIKULAND map is sticking around, but it will be livened up with a Winter theme, new content, and a new area to explore titled “Snow Globe Illumination”.

MIKULAND virtual map

There’s two ways to enjoy the event, and you can choose between VirtualCast (VR viewing) or HoloModels (AR viewing, more limited functionality). To view the methods of app installation and how to join, please click the link below to be taken to the “how to” guide. Please note the instructions are provided in Japanese only, but are relatively easy to follow.

If you can’t join through either programs, there will also be a video broadcast on both Nicovideo and YouTube during the event. Links will be live on the site when the event is live.

Various virtual shops will also be on display to explore.

There will be plenty of virtual activities to enjoy as well! These include Snow Globe (details coming soon), a mini concert (details coming soon), character Meet & Greets, Rhythm Games, Mystery Solving games, and a Snowball Fight event!

There’s a few other special areas, or “spots” to check out! These include Yukine Hills, a digital Piapro Art Wall, and Miku art gallery!

Virtual Snow Sculpture Recruitment


A snow sculpture modeling contest has been launched for this event, and the selected entries will be featured as snow sculptures in the “Snow Globe Illumination” area of MIKULAND! Entries will be accepted until January 15th, 2021 JST. If you’d like to enter, please make sure you meet the following requirements:

– Only files in fbx, obj or glb formats will be accepted. Please zip files before uploading.
– Please make sure your model follows the Piapro Character License rules.
– Create your model in under 10,000 polygons.
– Please do not affix textures to the model. Management will paste a snow texture onto the model.
– Do no attach bones or animations to the model.
– Create your models with the assumption that they will be filling a 3m x 3m x 3m space.

If your model is selected, you’ll receive the following rewards in VirtualCast and HoloModels: MIKULAND Plushie (Piapro Award for use with HoloModels), Clock (Virtual Cast Award for use with VirtualCast), Room Shoes (Gugenka® Award for use with HoloModels), and a Mask & Holder (TSUKUMO Award for use with HoloModels).
