After a long wait of five months, Mobage social game “Hatsune Miku Graphy Collection” now supports iPhones. To celebrate that, Crypton Future Media(the people who brought us Vocaloids) are celebrating it with an event in-game.
It was announced by Crypton Future Media on the 21st June 2012, that they would be working with DeNa, using their Mobage open platform system to extend support to include iPhone users for their popular card collection/nurturing simulation game “Hatsune Miku Graphy Collection” since its release in February 2012.
To celebrate the milestone, iPhone users will be getting 10 of “Stamina recovery Max” and “Tension recovery Max” items instead of the normal 3 of each once they complete the tutorial.
On top of that, all users who start the game within this period will get a 7 day double XP and in game goods, making it an enticing preposition to begin the game now.
What is “Hatsune Miku Graphy Collection”?
“Hatsune Miku Graphy Collection” is a dream collaboration realized by many creators that is the second set of Japan’s first CGM(Consume Generated Media) social game.
The efforts come from a plethora of illustrators across multiple genres; whom some of them are drawing Miku and the rest of the Vocaloid characters for the first time.
This is all for the sake of enabling and enhancing player experience through expanding their card collection and to reach the goal of completing their card collection libraries. Crypton expects to add more cards as an ongoing effort to showcase new artists.
How is the gameplay like?
The game system requires the player to build a deck of 6 cards which he begins with.To increase the number of cards, the player must do quests or use the gachapon(mini lottery) to try their luck at getting new/rarer cards.
A social game must have some form of social interaction, for this game, players will be able to interact with each other via a battle system. Players can pit their deck of cards in a 1 vs 1 situation and the side with the higher numbers of wins will win the overall match.
While having strong cards will increase the chance of winning, players can apply tactics such as rearranging the deck order in such a way that their stronger cards are pitted against the opponent’s weaker cards and thus gaining an overall victory through careful planning.
Some cards have additional abilities that activate on certain conditions(Sun Graze: +300 singing/charisma only on Sundays) that might turn a lost cause into a stunning victory.
Winners of this battle will gain XP and snatch a portion of their money and items of which can be used to further their goals of completing their collection of cards.
