The PlayStation VR is now available worldwide, and alongside it launched a multitude of games including Sega’s Hatsune Miku: VR Future Live. It allows users to attend a live Hatsune Miku concert in VR, with later releases involving fellow Vocaloids Kagamine Rin and Len, Megurine Luka, Kaito and Meiko.
What releases today is known as 1st Stage, and includes 7 songs. The 2nd and 3rd Stages will be released at later dates, and all three will either be available one at a time or as a bundle. Full details and the release trailer can be found in Sega’s press release on the game, which you can read below:
Hatsune Miku: VR Future Live Is Now… Live. Download the 1st Stage Today to Join Miku in Her First Virtual Reality Tour!
Watch the Electrifying Launch Trailer Below!
Also, the VR Future Live Demo and Project Diva X VR Patch are Available Now
It’s time to put on your shiny new PlayStation®VR headset to witness the greatest show in virtual reality, because Hatsune Miku: VR Future Live is out now! The game will transport you to a massive arena full of screaming Miku fans for a concert experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. You’ll need to get your fanboy/girl on to help out Miku and charge the stage’s voltage by moving your controller in time with the crowd. Plus, don’t forget to shout some encouragement to her (seriously) as building her voltage up will unlock easter eggs. After three songs, Miku will even do a special solo encore performance just for you!
The 1st Stage is out now and contains the following seven tracks:
- Love Trial by 40mP
- 1/6 – out of the gravity – by noa
- Satisfaction by kz
- Weekender Girl by kz & Hachioji P
- 39 by DECO*27 & sasakure.UK
- Cute Medley – Idol Sounds by Mitchie M
- Love Song by Lamaze-P
Hatsune Miku: VR Future Live is now available as a free download on PlayStation®Network, but players will need to purchase Stages in order to play any content. There will be a total of three stages that can be purchased à la carte for $14.99 or as a season pass bundle for $39.99 (you’re saving money with the bundle, just saying) in the Americas. European prices will be commensurate and more information about the 2nd and 3rd Stages will be revealed at a later date.
If you aren’t sold yet, why not download the demo now and see what all the fuss is about? The demo contains a tutorial and one song (Weekender Girl by kz & Hachioji P) that will give you an exciting look at what it’s like to watch the world’s most popular digital diva perform in virtual reality. If you’re STILL on the fence, just check out/download the electric launch trailer below!
Project DIVA X VR Patch
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE! The VR-enabling patch for Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X is also live. The free patch allows players to watch concerts they’ve created with the Concert Editor in VR. Although the rhythm gameplay won’t be present, players will get a thrilling glimpse of what Miku is like in the world of virtual reality!
