SEGA has announced it will release an enhanced version of the popular Japanese game Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai 2 for western gamers on the Nintendo 3DS. Currently under a working title, Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai Remix is set to launch in 2015 for North America and Europe.
The rhythm game – which is developed by Crypton Future Media – will mark the first appearance of the Hatsune Miku franchise on a Nintendo platform outside of Japan, as well as making it the first localisation of a Project Mirai game in the west.
Project Mirai Remix will feature two different rhythm game modes, along with three difficulty levels per song. Check out the video above for a quick look at the game, as well as the press release information below.
Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI Remix features characters rendered in beautiful stereoscopic 3D, with two different rhythm game modes (button and touch) and three difficulties per song. Players will enjoy a highly customizable experience with user customization options for button icons and sounds, character costumes and gear for the character rooms.
Players can create and share personalized player cards that show off who you are as well as create customized dance routines to the songs, your own musical phrase and personalized comments about their favorite in-game videos, all via StreetPass™. The game also utilizes the AR card and photo capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS to bring characters to life in 3D.
“Hatsune Miku’s popularity in the West keeps growing, and we are proud to support such an amazing franchise with our games,” said John Cheng, President and COO, SEGA of America.
