The long-awaited release of Project Sekai Colorful Stage feat. Hatsune Miku is finally here! The game is available for download on both the Google Play and Apple App stores. While it’s only officially released in Japan, the game is still playable as long as you can either side-load the game (Android) or register a Japan region account (iOS). We’re hoping it will eventually get a release outside of Japan as well!

Hatsune Miku Project DIVA fans with a Nintendo Switch can rejoice! Mega Mix is now officially available to download and play from the Nintendo eShop.

The game clocks in at 13.9GB in size (16.9GB with all updates and DLC), making it one of the largest games in filesize on the Nintendo eShop. Unless you have your Nintendo Switch’s internal memory relatively free, it is recommended to invest in a sizeable and speedy MicroSD card, which will also help with those loading times (128GB cards can be had for around $25). The base game is priced at $39.39 on the eShop.

Also available on the same day as the game’s launch are the 6 DLC song packs with six songs each, for a total of 36 additional songs. This brings the game’s total song count to 141 songs, the largest of any of the Diva games on a mobile console! Each of the 6 packs cost $6.99 each, or you can buy the DLC bundle for a discounted price of $29.99. The T-shirt design pack DLC is also available for free!

If you purchase the Mega Mix Mega Pack version, you can get the game and all DLC song packs for $59.99 (shirt DLC still needs to be downloaded separately). The theme song pack with 4 bonus songs was included for free for those that preordered the game early, while others will have to wait until June 12th to download it.

Lastly, the new “Tap Play” mode is also included in the game’s launch. To activate it, simply navigate these menus in the game: Customization > Game/control config > Arcade Mode > Tap Play > Enable. For the best experience and feedback, it is also recommended to play this mode with the “stylus” mode enabled for the touch pad in the Switch’s settings menu.

It is also confirmed that the HORI Arcade Controller is supported in the Western release of the game. To activate it, go to Customization > Game/control config > Arcade Mode > Arcade Controller Settings. We hope they eventually update Western version of Future Tone on the PS4 to support the arcade controller as well.

Early notification of the game release will be useful, as the Hatsune Miku V4X outfit set will be available for free for a limited time after the game launches, so be sure to grab it before it’s gone!

Lastly, game devs are looking for early access players to create and share videos of the gameplay before its release! If you’re interested, follow the links on the tweet below:

SEGA has announced May 15th, 2020 as the release date for Hatsune Miku Project Diva: Mega Mix for the Nintendo Switch! The Western version of Mega Mix (called MEGA39’s in Japan) will be available exclusively in digital format from the Nintendo eShop. A playable demo is available for download right now, while the full version of the game can be preordered for $39.39 USD.

Mega Mix includes 101 songs spanning over 10 years of of the Project Diva game series, 10 of which are all new to Mega Mix/MEGA39’s. These include “Catch the Wave” by kz(livetune), “Alien Alien” by Nayutalien, “39 Music!” by mikitoP, “Hibana” by DECO*27, “Teo” by Omoi, “ROKI” by mikitoP, “Jigsaw puzzle” by Mafumafu, “Dreamin Chuchu” by emon(Tes.), “Ooedo Julianight” by Mitchie M and “Jitterbug” by Nanashi Hachiya.

There’s two play modes (arcade and joycon motion), a new module for the theme song, and even a t-shirt customization feature is included in the game!

And if you happen to be in the mood to grab yourself the new arcade-style controller from HORI for MEGA39’s/Mega Mix or Future Tone, but missed out on the last batch of preorders, you’ll probably be happy to hear that preorders are currently reopened on the HORI website until April 30th at 1:00 PM JST! Both controllers are priced at 38,478 JPY ($358 USD) each, and are expected to ship in the summer of 2020. To ship overseas, a proxy service is required.

Please note that there is a chance the Western versions of these games have not been updated with the software patches to support these controllers, and we’re awaiting a response from SEGA. Has anyone out there successfully used the PS4 controller with the Western version of Future Tone? Please let us know!
