Yamaha has announced in their recent press release on their upcoming vocaloid VY1, codenamed “MIZUKI”. VY1 does not have a specific gender though fanart as shown seems to make VY1 a girl. Well, reminds me of Hideyoshi if you get what I mean.
Vocaloid VY1 will be released for retail on September 1 at 11,800 yen for normal edition and 14,800 yen for the collectors edition. Preorders end tomorrow.
There are some samples of the songs using VY1, check them out below
