The Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai 2017 website has finally been updated with the main visual art, along with a teaser CM featuring the theme song “Suna no Wakusei” (Dune) composed by Hachi (available below)!

The main visual art was drawn by iXima, the illustrator popularly known for contributing the box art for the Hatsune Miku V3 and V4X software. The outfit was designed with Miku’s distinctive feeling and beauty in mind, with the theme of a “festive, sparkling, divine songstress”.

Now we also know that a Snow Miku 2017 module will be added to Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Arcade (and likely the PlayStation 4 version as DLC). Snow Mikudayo was also present to give her blessings for the snowcar introduction. Below is a gallery provided by a friend (thank you again!).
