At the recent Miku Expo in Shanghai, China, a new Hatsune Miku mobile game titled “Dreamy Vocal” was demoed publicly for the first time. News of the game came late last month, but was somehow overlooked by a lot of the overseas fanbase until recently.
From the people who played it, the game apparently borrows design ideas from Love Live! and Idol Master. It is being developed by Black Sugar Studio, a Chinese game company, in close collaboration with Crypton Future Media. Besides being a rhythm game, features such as online player interaction and battle modes (multiplayer) are confirmed, and the expected costume customization features.
The game is expected to launch later this month for both Android and iOS platforms. It’s rumored be a free to play game, with a microtransaction store. Pre-registrations are currently open, although it seems not all phone numbers work (mine did, but it didn’t work for another friend). This is not required to play the game, however. It’s also unknown if the game will be region locked to China.
