With the mobile game Hatsune Speed: Hatsune Miku Roller Skating Music now released in China, here’s a quick guide detailing how to download, register an account, and login to play the game from almost anywhere in the world.

Keep in mind the game is still in open beta, so the servers and game often go down for maintenance and updates. Feel free to contribute any extra gameplay details and guides in the comments below!

Step 1: Download the game

First go to http://miku.163.com, and download and install the game using the pink button, as shown on the image above. Please note Android users may have to enable ‘allow installation from unknown sources’. iOS users may need to register a Chinese Apple ID.

Step 2: Register a dummy @163.com email

Because China often only allows site and game registrations using China-based email addresses, we need to set up a quick @163.com email address, which is easy and takes only a minute by following the image above. Use a valid mobile phone number! To get to the registration page, go here (if using mobile, force the browser into “desktop mode”): http://reg.email.163.com/

Step 3: Login to the game

Now load up the game, and then you can login using the email you just registered by clicking the icon above! This is highly recommended for keeping track of your game progress across multiple devices, otherwise all your data may be lost if you choose to play using a temporary account.

Enjoy the game, and please feel free to contribute any useful tips and guides in the comments below! EDIT 2/23/18: I created a game guide via livestream!

Hatsune Miku mobile games seem to now be the rage in China recently, with “初音速: Roller Skating Music” (初音速 = Hatsune Speed) announced for an upcoming open beta release! The game was teased at Comicup (China’s version of Comiket) in China earlier this month, and is being developed by Miyoo Entertainment. The game genre is an interesting hybrid of Rhythm and Racing styles, with competitive play modes and character customization features.

It has been announced on the game’s official site that an open beta will start “soon” for iOS users, but an exact date is still unknown. An Android release also appears to be in the works. Below is a gallery of gameplay images and artworks from the official Hatsune Speed game site, and their Weibo. We’ll share further details once we get them!
