It’s now July 2nd in Japan, and it’s the 10th anniversary of SEGA feat. HATSUNE MIKU Project! In commemoration of the anniversary, Sega has announced a brand new Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA title “Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA MEGA 39’s” to be released as the first Project DIVA title ever on the Nintendo Switch.

The game will come with 100 songs that signifies the 10 years history of SEGA feat. HATSUNE MIKU Project, plus a newly written theme song that’s yet to be revealed. Included in the list is 10 new songs to the Project DIVA series, 2 of which were revealed to be “Alien Alien” by Nayutan Alien and “39 Music!” by MikitoP.

In addition to the 101 songs, a total of 300 modules has also been confirmed.

 

Speaking of modules, there’ll also be a t-shirt design contest to be made into in-game module(s). Creator(s) of the winning entry will also appear in the roll credits as well as gifted a copy of the game. The contest will be held on Piapro starting from July 5th, where a link to the contest will soon surface shortly.

As the first Project DIVA title on the Nintendo Switch, the game will also feature a unique gameplay mode in a similar fashion to Project Mirai Deluxe’s Button/Touch modes for the Nintendo 3DS. Additionally, the origin of the title will also be revealed in the upcoming July 4th edition of Weekly Famitsu magazine; we’re expecting more reveal there as well.

For PS4/Arcade players, SEGA says some of the new content from MEGA 39’s will also come to Future Tone.

Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA MEGA 39’s will be released for Nintendo Switch in early 2020 in Japan. For the first on-hand experience on the game, be sure to visit Sega booth at Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai 2019 in Tokyo on August 30th~September 1st to try your chance on the demo!

It’s been 5 years since Rohto’s Digi-Eye eye drop launched a collaboration with Hatsune Miku, and it’s all coming to an end this month. Starting from July onward, Rohto’s Digi-Eye packaging will undergo a new design and the Miku design will be discontinued along with the AR app. For this one last farewell, and as thanks for continued support from all the Miku fans, Rohto has prepared us final farewell gifts.

From this moment onward until June 30th, purchases of Digi-Eye at the associated stores in Akihabara will come with original smartphone stickers featuring the adorable Miku model by Kasoku Sato. The stickers come in 4 unique designs on a limited stock, so be sure to grab them before they’re gone!

 

Furthermore, there’s also a rare fifth design exclusive to the web lottery. On the newly revamped official Digi-Eye x Miku site are areas for fans to “make their farewell promises with Miku” from making sure to properly rest their eyes from now on to continuing to enjoy the digital world.  Fans that made their promises and followed Digi-Eye on Twitter will be entering a web lottery for a full set of the stickers as a “proof of promise”, limited to 5 winners only.

If you’re living in Japan, be sure to look out for the stores in Akihabara below!
