An early news from Famitsu via Hachima Kikou has (reportedly) introduced new features, modules, and songs for the upcoming title Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X in 2016. The three new key features are “Live Quest mode”, “Module Drop”, and “Rush Notes”.
The Live Quest mode is a quest system newly introduced to the game, and listed on the bulletin board in Diva Room. The quests may vary depending on the areas, where they’re five areas in total. By “filling” up the power of song, the quest is progressed and eventually passed when a right amount of “Voltage” is met.
By completion of the quest, an event will trigger conversations among the characters in the quest. Additionally, if the quest conditions and “Chance Time” are both cleared, players will be rewarded with a random module. This is known as the “Module Drop” feature, and will be in place of the traditional method with diva points (specific modules tend to drop from certain quests).
Another feature to mention is the “Rush Notes”, where it establishes an alternative for players to gain higher scores. This can be done by pressing the corresponding buttons repeatedly when the word “RUSH” appears on the screen.
EDIT: With the official site update, we have confirmed the details of the early leak. In addition to the above contents, the live quest mode will also reward music, stages, and accessories. Miku and friends will level up as the quest completion increases. The Rhythm Game mode will now be known as Free Play mode, and the game will have 30 songs in total.
It’s said that the game is at 39% of its development stage.
Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X will be released on PS4 and PS Vita starting from Fall 2016 and March 2016, respectively. Visit the official website.
