The full color gallery for the 1/8 scale Hatsune Miku: Hanairo Koromo ver. figure has been released! She was first teased earlier in December last year along with the 1/4 scale Snow Miku figure in celebration of Snow Miku Sky Town’s 1st anniversary on December 20th.

Presales for the figure has been announced for February 1st~March 13th at the Snow Miku Sky Town, with release date set for sometime in November this year. An exclusive acrylic keychain will be given as a special benefit to the customers at Snow Miku Sky Town.

Currently, preorders for the figure have been announced for Synapse Mall and AmiAmi JP (Japan only), and share the same period of preorders and release as the presales. International links will be added once they’ve been sighted or made available at a later time. The figure is priced at 12,800 Yen (tax included).

The Hatsune Miku: Hanairo Koromo (colorful clothes) ver. figure is based on a remarkable illustration by Fujichoko. Below is the official gallery released via the official Hatsune Miku blog today.

EDIT: International preorder is now available on AmiAmi.com!

The next update for Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X has arrived today! This update involves the Free Play mode, Live Edit mode, and five new songs. We’ll start off with the Free Play mode, also known as the new title for the classic Rhythm Game mode we’re all familiar with.

The Free Play mode behaves similarly to the rhythm game in previous titles, and contains music, stages, modules, and accessories unlocked via the Live Quest mode. There are a few key details to be noted regarding this mode: Module Drop do not occur, Modules’ skills do not apply their effects, Module transformation toggle option is available, and Help & Challenge items are included as part of the feature.


In the Live Edit mode, players are opened to full customization options in creating a rhythm game or a video, including the choices for songs, stages, modules, setting different camera angles, lighting, etc. Please note that the Live Edit mode will come separately as a free DLC available on PlayStation store for PS Vita due to its massive size.

Below are the five new songs and their modules, including the opening theme song by ryo(supercell).

New Songs

  • “Countress” by Yuu (NEUTRAL)
  • “Anode Electronica” & “Cathode Electronica” by Fujichoko (BEAUTY)

Two all-new Hatsune Miku scale figures have been announced this week, with very different designs and sizes. These are the 1/4 scale Snow Miku figure from FREEING, and the 1/8 scale “Hana Iro Koromo” ver. Hatsune Miku figure from Stronger, a relatively new figure company. Both figures were revealed yesterday at the Snow Miku Sky Town shop at New Chitose airport in Sapporo.

The Snow Miku figure borrows largely from the recently released and popular Hatsune Miku V3 figure, with some changes to the pose and color pallet. The smile was changed, and a snowflake was added to the outstretched left hand. Presales for the figure will open at Snow Miku Sky Town in February 2016, with online web orders to follow soon afterwards. The price is set for 27,800 Yen.

The 1/8 scale “Hana Iro Koromo” (colorful clothes) version figure was unfortunately not on physical display at the shop, but photos of the prototype were included on its teaser display. It is based on this beautiful illustration by Fujichoko, which was created for other various promotional goods at the Snow Miku Sky Town shop.

Like the previous Snow Miku figure, this one will also have open presales at the Snow Miku Sky Town shop in February 2016, with online web orders to follow soon after. No pricing information is available yet, however.
