SEGA Announces Western Release of Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai Remix for Nintendo 3DS
In a live stream earlier today, SEGA announced that the Project Diva game series has totaled 2.5 million units in sales. The series also just celebrated its 5th anniversary today on July 2nd.
Another big announcement was regarding the western release of an enhanced version of Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai 2 for the Nintendo 3DS titled “Project Mirai Remix” (working title), with a scheduled release due sometime in 2015. Since the second game release also included the songs from the first, it would make sense for the Western release of Project Mirai to start with the second game in the series. This is also the first time a Hatsune Miku game has been released on a Nintendo console outside of Japan.
The details of these “enhancements” are yet to be revealed, but the game will still have all the features of the Japanese release:
Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI Remix features characters rendered in beautiful stereoscopic 3D, with two different rhythm game modes (button and touch) and three difficulties per song. Players will enjoy a highly customizable experience with user customization options for button icons and sounds, character costumes and gear for the character rooms. Players can create and share personalized player cards that show off who you are as well as create customized dance routines to the songs, your own musical phrase and personalized comments about their favorite in-game videos, all via StreetPass. The game also utilizes the AR card and photo capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS to bring characters to life in 3D.
