The Vocaloid franchise has been a giant in the music world for years. Next, it’s out to dominate the video game world, as Sega has announced the next Vocaloid game coming to the 3DS.
Hatsune Miku Project Mirai 2 (working title), the sequel to the 2012 rhythm game Hatsune Miku and Future Stars Project Mirai, is scheduled to be released this fall.
Just like the previous game, Miku and the other Vocaloids will be depicted as Nendroids. One of the differences this time is that the game will have two different modes that let you play with just the touchscreen or just the face buttons.
Of course, the main part of the game is the songs. You will be glad to hear that the game will include full-sized, uncropped songs, while the music videos will feature, obviously, stereoscopic 3D graphics. The currently revealed songs are listed below. The videos, of course, are not taken from the game.
Koneko no Paya Paya (Music and lyrics by One Cup-P)
For this game, One Cup-P will remake his song depicting the daily life of a cute, mischievous kitten, offering a slightly different taste from the original.
Do Re Mi Fa Rondo (Music and lyrics by 40mP)
Featuring a lively march tune, fans of the music video animated by Tama will want to watch it again in 3D.
Yume Yume (Music and lyrics by DECO*27)
The theme song of Future Stars is making a return with a brand new music video featuring nendroid Miku.
Along with new songs and music videos, there will be new costumes that you can view in your room. There are custom costumes for Koneko no Paya Paya and Do Re Mi Fa Rondo, as well as the dazzling Sakura Miku designed by Putidevil.
Finally, Project Mirai 2 will hold an exhibit at the Nico Nico Super Conference 2 at Makuhari Messe on April 27 and 28, so those of you planning to attend may get a chance to play the game before anyone else in the world. In the meantime, the rest of us will wait for more info before the game is released this fall.
