Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI Remix

Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI Remix (working title) is an enhanced version of  the Japanese title Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI 2. This one features touch screen or button controls, plenty of costumes and room items to unlock, some AR Cards, photo features, and much more. This is the first time Miku has appeared on the 3DS outside of Japan.

As a fan of the series I am personally pretty stoked. You can check out the full press release below.


SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON – July 2, 2014 – SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA® Europe, Ltd. today announced that Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI Remix (working title), an enhanced version of the popular Japanese video game Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI 2, will launch in the West on Nintendo 3DS in 2015.

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.

    Glad I am not the only 20+ male who likes Miku. The music just makes me happy. lol

      I hear you. I am 26 and I listen to Miku at work and at the gym. It’s about time Sega stopped being hoarders with their IPs and letting us in on some Miku. I wish they’d work on releasing PSO2…

      Right there with you on this, I love Miku, Rin, AI, and whole slew of other vocaloids as well.
