The main application needed to launch the game, “Prelude”, will be available for free download.

News of Project Diva Arcade: Future Tone’s PS4 port (simply known as Project Diva Future Tone) has been quite for the past while, but an update today from Famitsu Magazine reveals the game will launch in two versions with new titles, which can be combined to create a total of 220 songs and 340 modules. Each “half” of the game can be purchased and played independently, while the second half can be purchased later if desired as an “add-on”.

The first half is titled Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone – Future Sound, and comes with 120 songs. This song selection features songs around the Project Diva home console series. The second half, titled Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone – Colorful Tone, contains 100 songs with tracks taken from the Arcade version, as well as Project Mirai on 3DS.

You will have the ability to customize your controller input, and can even set a button with combo presses (Want to set those 4 button holds to a single button? Now you can.). Thanks to the PS4’s superior hardware compared to arcade, you can set up to 6 characters on screen at a single time, and also run the game at 1080p and 60 frames per second.

SEGA’s quote from the magazine assures fans that the game’s cost will have a “bargain price”. The game is slated for release sometime later in 2016.

Sega has released the fourth information update for Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X today. This update presents us with two newly announced features: Event Quest and Special Live, as well as additional songs and medley. Both features will be available upon meeting certain conditions in game.

The Event Quest feature is one of the newly implemented features in Project DIVA X which will be released from time to time in accordance with the game progress. These quests provide much higher Voltage rewards in return for their challenging tasks. Players may also engage in conversation with characters in the “Home” area to get hold of the event quests’ details and more.

Next we have the Special Live feature, a new gameplay mechanics simulating a live concert experience up to three songs consecutively. The combination of song(s), module(s), and stage are choices for the players to be made entirely, which in turn allows more diversity for each live. Furthermore, the stages come in different elements and atmospheres and the songs are specially edited for the best concert experience. An image of one of the live halls filled with glow sticks can be seen below.

In addition, Sega has also released the teaser images for the opening movie based on the newly composed opening “Tsumi no Namae/Name of the Crime” by Ryo (Supercell). As we previously mentioned, a 64 second demo can be listened from the official Project Diva X website and the main SEGA feat. Hatsune Miku Project website.

Below are the lists of the newly announced songs, medley, and modules for the game.

SEGA has released an in-dept details for the Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X today. The main focus will be at the new system, the Live Quest mode. We’ll also go over some old details for better understanding.

The game will set a starting point in the NEUTRAL area, whereas the total areas will count up to five: NEUTRAL, CUTE, COLD, BEAUTY, and CHAOS. Each areas has its own “gem”, and we’ll go over that in a moment. Aside from the quests is the “Home” where players can discuss the current progress, objectives, and other topics with the characters. The tones change according to the modules selected.

In the Live Quest Mode, room items, accessories, and modules (Module Drop) can be unlocked by completing quests. Meeting the minimum Voltage value in quests will mark them as completed. This is where the “gem” comes into play: Filling the “gem” with Voltage to full will unlock the next area of choice. Modules and accessories of matching attributes will allow boost in the Voltage rate. In addition, certain modules will have skills to increase the Voltage rate.

Once all songs are completed in the area, a special medley song will be unlocked as an opportunity to gain a leap in Voltage stored. The medley song for NEUTRAL area is “Hajimari no Medley: Primary Colors” arranged by OSTER project, and features “Koisuru VOC@LOID”, “Dreaming Leaf -Dreaming Words-”, “Bad Mood Waltz,” and “Miracle Paint“. The medley song will start off with one character (Miku), then slowly adds more until all six are performing on the stage together.

In addition to the details on Live Quest mode, SEGA has revealed 4 new songs and their modules for the game: “Streaming Heart” by DECO*27 (CHAOS), “Amazing Dolce” by HitoshizukuP x yama△ (BEAUTY),  “Sea Lily Deep Sea Tale” by n-buna (CUTE), and “Slow Motion” by PinocchioP (CHAOS).

Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X will be released on PS4 and PS Vita in Fall 2016 and March 2016, respectively. This update has also been brought to the official website (Japanese).
