“Hatsune Miku is baaaack on the iPhone!” the playful voice of Saki Fujita teases in this new 30-second promotional trailer for the soon-to-be-released iPhone game app, Miku Flick 02.
Like its predecessor, this rhythm-action sequel has players perform taps and flicks on a Japanese-style smartphone keyboard in sync to a number of popular Vocaloid songs performed by digital singer Hatsune Miku. This time round, her friends Kagamine Rin, Len, and Megurine Luka will also join in on the fun. Some of the songs here will be duets.
This new trailer is nowhere near as satisfying to watch as the previous, two-and-a-half-minutes-long play video that Sega released for the app.
For the most part the new trailer is a recap on all the new features Sega is adding to Miku Flick 02. Apart from the addition of an “Extreme” difficulty level, which is a notch above “Hard”, there will also be three new modes of play: Replay, Karaoke, and Climax.
Only one of the modes is clearly defined on the game app’s official website: Replay mode is where you go to view your best hi-score or “super play” performances.
Karaoke mode is pretty self-explanatory, which leaves us with Climax mode, which we’re not entirely sure refers to what exactly. Could this be the new name for the nigh-impossible “Break the Limit” mode in the original Miku Flick?
The official website has also been updated with a list of songs (nine tracks + one hidden… any good guesses on what the hidden track might be?) that will be included in the game. Like we previously reported, the game will also support DLC song packs, the first of which contains three duet songs.
Miku Flick 02 for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad (iOS 5.0 and above) will be released on the iTunes App Store soon (date is to be determined), to be sold in Japan for 900 yen.
As with the first Miku Flick, an English international version of the app is also planned for release in the near future.
