Back in April SEGA Japan confirmed Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X would support the PlayStation VR head-mounted display (HMD) but only in Japan. The videogame is scheduled to release next month for PlayStation 4 in the country, and now news has arrived of a western release. SEGA has confirmed Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X will launch in the US and Europe this Fall but there’s been no mention yet for included virtual reality (VR) support.
Both the PlayStation VR and PlayStation Vita will see a demo version of the title arrive on western shores on 9th August. The demo includes three songs: Satisfaction, LOL -lots of laugh-, and Raspberry * Monster on Easy or Normal difficulties. There will also be unlockable costume modules for Hatsune Miku, and a custom Music Festival medley. With the Japanese version getting PlayStation VR support it’s not too much of a stretch to imagine that the European and US releases may include it as well.
If you’re unfamiliar with Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X, it’s a rhythm videogame starring digital singer Hatsune Miku. The world is comprised of five unique Clouds, each with its own aura – Classic, Cool, Cute, Elegant, and Quirky with Miku and her friends undertaking various requests as they explore each cloud. As the title progresses, the auras of the songs performed and the modules chosen will have a profound effect on fulfilling challenge conditions.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X has 30 songs and nearly 300 modules (costumes) that get dropped. There’s a newly added Concert Editor, allowing players to create their own mini-concerts from the songs, modules and accessories they collect. As the clouds are explored Miku and her friends begin to forge relationships, and eventually the secret of the X is revealed.
