Sega held a panel on Thursday at this year’s Tokyo Game Show titled “Sega feat. Hatsune Miku Project” where it revealed that the upcoming rhythm game Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone will run at 1080p and 60 frames per second on PS4.
Project Diva Future Tone is a home console port of the Japan-exclusive arcade game Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Arcade Future Tone, slated for release in Japan as a download-only game in 2016. The original was the second Project Diva Arcade game, which feature similar gameplay to the console releases with the bonus of much higher-quality visuals in the music videos. Hiroshi Utsumi, the producer for the game, has stated that he wants to show just how much has gone into the creation with the final product. Utsumi has also asserted that the game will release after Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X, although it is unknown if he was referring to the March 2016 Vita release or the PS4 release later that year. He only said that the game will release “around a time that anyone can play without getting tired of it.”
During the panel, Utsumi also addressed Sega feat. Hatsune Miku Project: VR Tech Demo for PlayStation VR, a tech demo wherein users can watch Hatsune Miku in concert in VR. He mentioned that the demo may become a product, provided there is sufficient interest in it. So, if you want to see a full release for Miku in VR, be sure to send your requests to Sega and make sure they know if there could be a demand for it. Personally, I would love to have that come to a full release, and get the chance to see Miku and company in virtual concert.
