IRVINE, Calif. – March 31, 2016 – Hatsune Miku is back and bigger than ever on the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®Vita in the upcoming rhythm game,
Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X. For those new to Project DIVA, it is an addictive core rhythm game starring the digital singer, Hatsune Miku.

In Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X, the world is comprised of five unique Clouds, each with its own aura – Classic, Cool, Cute, Elegant, and Quirky. As Miku and her friends progress, the auras of the songs they perform and even the modules they choose will have a profound effect on fulfilling challenge conditions for players to test themselves with. There’s also the newly added Concert Editor, which lets players create their own mini-concerts from the songs, modules and accessories they collect. As players take on Requests and explore Clouds with Miku and her friends, they begin to forge relationships, and ultimately, will reveal the secret of the eponymous “X.”
