Earlier in Spring this year Good Smile Company and Sega gave us a Sakura Miku 2012 Nendoroid and Project Diva Arcade module to usher in the season of beginnings.

Now that 2012 is drawing to a close, the two companies have once again teamed up to bring us a new seasonally themed Hatsune Miku Nendoroid and Project Diva module: meet Snow Miku 2013, in all her various form factors.

Nendoroid Snow Miku 2013

Starting tomorrow, December 17, the first batch of Nendoroid Snow Miku 2013 figures – also known as Nendoroid Snow Miku Strawberry White Kimono Ver. (ねんどろいど 雪ミク いちご白無垢Ver.) – will be open to pre-order balloting over at the e-plus online store. The online balloting for the new Nendoroid figure will take place between December 17 1PM Japan time, to December 23 11:59PM, and the results will be announced on December 27.

If you didn’t (or couldn’t) snag one during the online balloting period, you could also pick one up during Wonder Festival, to be held on February 10 next year at the Makuhari Messe, or directly from the Good Smile X Karaoke no Tetsujin Cafe from February 10.

The Snow Miku 2013 Nendoroid will subsequently be sold online as well, but only sometime after it’s been made available through the avenues mentioned above.

One point of interest with the new Snow Miku 2013 Nendoroid is that you can freely change the figure’s hair style from the default look to that of Miku’s original twin tails.

Snow Miku 2013 Project Diva Arcade modules

Tomorrow, December 17, also marks the release of two new Hatsune Miku Vocaloid modules in Sega’s Project Diva Arcade game: the Snow Miku 2013, and Snow Miku 2013 AS – a version that sports Miku’s trademark twin tails, just like with the Nendoroid.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way~

O what fun, it is to play, Project Diva Arcade with both Snow Miku 2013s in the same song, hey!~

Snow Miku 2013 Project Diva f module

And the fun doesn’t stop there; gamers who own Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f on the PlayStation Vita will be able to join in the festive fun as soon. At some point in the near future Sega plans to roll out the Snow Miku 2013 and Snow Miku 2013 AS modules into the Vita’s Project Diva f as DLC (probably paid… we’ll see).

Here’s what they look like. Note that the facial expressions are different from the same modules for Project Diva Arcade – in a previous interview Sega did mention before that the character models in Project Diva f are actually more advanced than those in Diva Arcade, after all, to the point that certain things like facial expressions can never be ported over fully.
