At Magical Mirai 2019 – a yearly event focused on the Crypton Future Media Vocaloids, including Hatsune Miku – Sega showed off a new trailer for Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix on Switch, first announced back in July, featuring some of the 101 songs to be featured in the game, as well as the new gameplay mode.
The trailer can be seen here:
The trailer features several songs: livetune’s Catch the Wave (an original song commissioned by Sega as the game’s theme song), Tohma’s Envy Cat Walk, 40mP’s Karakuri Pierrot, Reol and Giga-P’s Hibikase, Mikito-P’s 39 Music!, emon’s Dreamin’ Chuchu, Hachiouji-P’s Sweet Devil, NayutalieN’s Alien Alien, wowaka’s Unhappy Refrain, Jesus-P’s Remote Controller, Dixie Flatline’s Just Be Friends, halyosy’s Snowman, yuukiss and rose’s Nostalogic, and sasakure.UK’s *Hello, Planet. It also gives a first look at the new gameplay mode, where players move the Joy-Cons to match incoming notes and wave them to the rhythm of the music, in addition to the standard Project DIVA gameplay found in the earlier PlayStation titles. Players will also be able to create custom playlists and view PVs for the music without gameplay.
The game has a slightly redesigned artstyle to give it a more anime-like look, as well as over 300 outfits. Players can mix and match outfits and hairstyles, as well as having custom-designed T-shirts.
Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix is set to launch on Switch in Japan on February 13, 2020, with a more vague 2020 release window internationally. More details will likely be made available on the game’s official site as it gets closer to launch.
