Sega announces Project Mirai 2 for US release
Heavens! Finally, Sega seems to be warming up to non-Japanese Vocaloid fans outside Japan. A few months after the release (and subsequent success) of it’s first international title for the Hatsune Miku Project Diva franchise , Project Diva F, many had wondered if Sega will give Project Mirai the same treatment. And now we have that answer 🙂
Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI Remix (working title), an enhanced version of the popular Japanese video game Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI 2, will launch in the West on Nintendo 3DS in 2015!
A fan favorite franchise, Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI Remix will mark the first release from the Project MIRAI series outside of Japan and also the first appearance of Hatsune Miku game on a Nintendo platform outside of Japan.
Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI Remix features characters rendered in beautiful stereoscopic 3D, with two different rhythm game modes (button and touch) and three difficulties per song.
Players will enjoy a highly customizable experience with user customization options for button icons and sounds, character costumes and gear for the character rooms.
Players can create and share personalized player cards that show off who you are as well as create customized dance routines to the songs, your own musical phrase and personalized comments about their favorite in-game videos, all via StreetPass.
The game also utilizes the AR card and photo capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS to bring characters to life in 3D.
“Hatsune Miku’s popularity in the West keeps growing, and we are proud to support such an amazing franchise with our games,” said John Cheng, President and COO, SEGA of America.
No more fretting over Nintendo’s old-school region-lock 🙂
