I just felt the need to post this news, more than anything else (to tell you the truth, there are three other things I’m writing on this blog). This is probably the happiest news I have ever heard! It’s approaching Miku’s birthday… There’s the SuperGT, and today Re:Packaged released with a success (I’ll write about it later on). But this news surpassed them all. I just got the newest Issue of Famitsu, and something made me stop at a particular page. It’s the picture of Hatsune Miku. Which means… she’s going to appear on another game. And it appears that this is quite a big appearance for her, since her name is on the title of the game… Read on for the Famitsu Scan and some more details.
By the way, this article is pretty old, check this new one for more details!
And just now… the PIAPRO blog is updated with the news that “The use of the Hatsune Miku character in a game development has been announced!”. Anyways, here’s the full excerpt from the PIAPRO development bog, by Kuri☆Ken.
I’ll try to translate them roughly, if it’s wrong, sorry! ><;
Please tell me on the comments below and I’ll fix it =D
Thanks htsuji for telling me what 音ゲーチックなゲーム means! >w<
Suddenly, the use of the Hatsune Miku character in a game development has been decided! It does have a story, and it kind of looks like some kind of music game, and the full details would be written on the 29 August Issue of Famitsu.
The game is codenamed “Hatsune Miku Project DIVA”, and as you could already see from the title, Miku is going to be the main character of the game, not just an add-on or extra unimportant character like in Hello Work! DS (forgot the full title) or PangYa! Japan.
The game have an interesting content and story (or so they say, but we’ll see about that sooner or later), a Music Rhythm game, and a wide customization option (dressing Miku up? awesome!). Also, users can create Music Videos, Musics, and 3D animations together with Miku in this game. I can’t wait for this game! I will DEFINITELY get this game NO MATTER WHAT. Famitsu reports that the game is currently 40% finished. As I said, the game is going to be for the PSP. It would be produced by SEGA and is scheduled to be released in 2009. A website has been set up and can be accessed at http://miku.sega.jp/, but it’s currently under construction (thanks again for htsuji for pointing this out!).
PIAPRO is also planning to do something for Hatsune Miku’s birthday in the coming Sunday, and I’ll report on it later on in this blog. I do have some more interesting posts I might publish tonight, so see you later! I’ll report on any further development of this game!
One more awesome thing on the coutdown of Hatsune Miku’s birthday!
Additional note: I have made an updated post about the gameplay and of course, the trailer of the game. You could view it by clicking here!
