Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA is a rhythm game series, published and developed by Sega and Crypton Future Media. As of now, the series has 6 main titles, which are released on various consoles, along with 2 Project Mirai games, and 4 spin-off titles for Mobile and other VR platforms.
The series is mainly focused on making use of the Vocaloid, a synthesizer software for singing, which is created by Yamaha Corporation. Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA is the first-ever video game to make use of the Vocaloid software.
Project DIVA Mega Mix was announced in the honor of the franchise’s 10th anniversary back in July 2019. The game has 101 songs, and 10 additional songs that were added in the DLC Future Tone game. This DLC utilizes a more anime-like art style and introduces a new form of gameplay using the Joy-Con controllers.
During the Magical Mirai 2019, Sega announced the release of the game in Japan in May 2020, and a few days later in Western regions. In the Western release, the game is called Mega Mix, which is a pun on the original name in Japanese “Mega 39’s”, as 39’s is pronounced similar to Miku’s or Mix.
However, other than their release on other platforms, the fans have been anxiously waiting for an official release of the game on PC, which would further increase the player base. Lucky for them, the game is set to release on 26th May, as we just got the information from SteamDB.
It was surprising already that it took Sega this long to bring a Hatsune Miku game on PC. Rhythm games are already quite popular on the platform, so it only seemed logical that they would grab the opportunity as well. Even though it took them some time, it doesn’t look like Mega Mix will come as a standalone, because we might see more things from the Mega Mix, like DLC, and other potential purchases as we move forward.
We can also expect them to have better graphics than the PS4, and more compatibility with controllers, which will be a treat to the Rhythm game players. Other than that, if you have any thoughts on what else we might see along with this, you can let us know down below!
