The Snow Miku 2016 website received a large and exciting news update today covering many topics, so we’ll try to summarize them below. The Snow Miku Festival is a joint collaboration with the yearly Sapporo Snow Festival, and will be open from February 5th until February 11th JST.

Possibly the largest of the announcements is the reveal of an official collaboration with Love Live! School Idol Project, a highly popular Japanese multimedia project that has went on to produce various albums, video games, music videos and even an anime series.

Similar to last year’s collaboration with Madoka Magica, there will be Love Live! snow sculptures carved alongside the Snow Miku sculptures. Additional collaboration details will be announced later, but we can likely expect various goods to be produced with this theme. The above illustration with Snow Miku 2016 posed with the μ’s was created to commemorate the special collaboration.

After being teased a few times in promotional videos, the full Snow Miku 2016 theme song, along with a cute music video, is now available on the official Hatsune Miku YouTube channel!

The theme song is titled “Before The Snow Melts”, and features music composed by Doriko, with the artwork and video created by Haruyo and Maku, respectively.

Artist comments will be posted here in English soon.
