Hatsune Miku Live Stage Producer for Android comes out of beta; launches with 7 new songs (paid content)
Today Hatsune Miku Live Stage Producer for Android devices is beta no more. Sega announced that the free-to-play simulation game app’s full service has officially launched.
Seven well-loved Hatsune Miku tracks have also been added as part of the game’s paid content line-up. They are:
Electronic Angel (Yasuo) / えれくとりっく・えんじぇぅ （ヤスオ）
Saihate (Kobayashi Onyxi) / サイハテ （小林オニキス）
Clover Club (Yuuyu) / クローバークラブ （ゆうゆ）
Po Pi Po (Lamaze-P) / ぽっぴっぽー （ラマーズP）
Romeo and Cinderella (doriko) / ロミオとシンデレラ（doriko）
Nekomimi Switch (daniwell) / ねこみみスイッチ（daniwell）
These seven new tracks join two free songs – Marginal (マージナル, video below) and Kouya to Mori to Mahou no Uta (The Song of Wilderness, Forests, and Magic / 荒野と森と魔法の歌) – that were accessible as part of the app’s beta service (they”ll still remain free post-launch).
Additional songs and costumes will also be rolled out at regular intervals.
Unlike Sega’s Project Diva and Miku Flick game series, in Live Stage Producer you play the role of Hatsune Miku’s producer and the owner of the live house that she performs exclusively at. Much of the game is played similar to a management simulator, where you have to pick out Miku’s training menu (which lessons to take, what stats to further raise), and decide on the interior decor of your live house.
During Hatsune Miku live performances, however, rhythm-action game mechanics do come into play, and you are tasked with swiping hearts and avoiding spiky objects in a bid to raise your score.

Unfortunately, as our readers have pointed out in our previous story, Hatsune Miku Live Stage Producer only works for Android users in Japan for now, due to regional restrictions. But Sega has said that they are working on an English international version, which we hope to see released soon.
As for iOS users, a version of Hatsune Miku Live Stage Producer for the iPhone and iPad is scheduled to be released sometime in the first half of December.
