Sega’s second DLC pack for PlayStation Vita rhythm game Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f adds one song – Po Pi Po Special Edition – along with seven customisation accessories. The DLC pack is part of a collaboration with Sony’s Minna to Issho franchise that previously also introduced Hatsune Miku-themed content in the free-to-play social game app, Minna to Issho: Friend Network (also known as Toro’s Friendly Network).

All of the Sony-cat-mascot-infused content comes to Project Diva f December 4, via a “Minna to Issho Collabo Set” (みんなといっしょコラボセット) that’s priced at 600 yen on the Japanese PlayStation store. That should translate to HK$68 in the Hong Kong store, and S$10.90 for Singapore, if DLC Pack 01’s pricing is anything to go by.

What’s ‘Po Pi Po Special Edition’?

When Sega announced a collaboration between Hatsune Miku Project Diva f and Sony’s Minna to Issho back at the Tokyo Game Show, the fanfare had been complete with a special video of the popular virtual singer kickin’ it with the PlayStation mascot cats Toro and Kuro to the tune of Po Pi Po (why, they even brought out an official Hatsune Miku cosplayer to double the fun!)

Although the song itself and the choreography in Po Pi Po Special Edition (ぽっぴっぽー Special edition) hasn’t been changed from the original Po Pi Po from Project Diva 2nd, just about everything else has. Most noticeably, the backgrounds and cinematography are different, and Hatsune Miku’s doing the dance in a trio unit with Toro and Kuro dressed up as Kagamine Rin and Len (no word on if you can swap out the PlayStation felines for one of the other Vocaloid modules in your library; most likely not).

‘Minna to Issho’ customise accessories

If seeing Toro and Kuro dancing side-by-side with Hatsune Miku isn’t enough, you’ll also be able to plaster items based on the PlayStation black and white felines all over the Vocaloid diva (or whichever Vocaloid module you pick to play Po Pi Po Special Edition with – again, we can’t confirm if players will be allowed to switch Vocaloid modules for this song).

In the pack of seven customise or customisation accessories that comes with Po Pi Po Special Edition, six of which are a mask, headgear, and plushie (strapped to your module’s back) available in Toro and Kuro versions. The final customisation item is a cutesy TV set – specifically called the “Back-strapped TV-san (980 yen)” [背負いテレビさん(980円)], which I’m guessing is a reference to something from Minna to Issho that I’m not aware of.
