SEGA releasing an official Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone DX controller

ftdxminicon_001_cs1w1_720x

SEGA is getting ready to release Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone DX, which happens to be a sort of ‘Game of the Year’ release for last year’s big Hatsune Miku game(s). This one includes all the DLC released for Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone plus new songs and modules. The game is set to have over 237 tracks and 396 modules. Yeah, its quite the hefty package.

This officially licensed Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone DX controller is set to deliver an experience of playing the game at the arcades. If you didn’t know, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone DX is actually the port of the SEGA-AM2 developed arcade game, so releasing an arcade style controller for this release makes sense. This also isn’t the only official Hatsune Miku controller available, as SEGA has released similar accessories in the past. According to the item description the controller uses 45mm buttons that have a similar feeling to those used in the arcade machine and the controller weighs in at 1.7kgs (3.7 pounds).

SEGA announces Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone DX for PlayStation 4

Hatsune-Miku-Project-Diva-Future-Tone-DX
Yo, what time is it? Feels like there has literally been less than 6 months without a release of a new Hatsune Miku: Project Diva game. What’s that? SEGA just announced Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone DX for the PlayStation 4? That’s right, SEGA will be publishing Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone DX which is set to hit Japan on November 22nd.

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone DX seems to be a sort of re-release package featuring songs from Colorful Tone and Future Sound. The game is set to feature 237 songs with 396 modules. That will include 127 songs from Future Sound, 95 songs from Colorful Tone, and 12 songs from the three Encore Pack add-ons which also includes the new song ‘Ghost Rule’. The game will also feature a new mode called ‘Promotional Video Photographing’. Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone DX will set you back 7,980 yen ($71 usd) for the standard version and 11,990 ($108) yen for the limited edition that includes 200 promotional videos and promotional videos of all the Hatsune Miku: Project Diva titles from the PSP to the PlayStation 4.

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone DX has only been confirmed for Japanese release, but seeing as SEGA has been bringing the titles over to the West, don’t be shocked that this one gets an announcement soon enough. What’s your take on SEGA basically doing a ‘game of the year’ edition of their arcade release? Are they milking the Hatsune Miku brand too much? Sound off in the comments.

Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone getting western release in January 2017

The latest game in the “Project DIVA” series, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone, has officially been given a American and European release date on Jan 10th, 2017. The game was previously rumored to get a global release due to the game receiving a USK 6 (Equivalent to an E for Everyone rating by ESRB) by the USK rating boards. In addition to confirming the release date on social media, SEGA has released a short trailer that highlights some of the songs found in the game and accompanying cinematics.

Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone boasts that it has over 200 songs, a mixture of songs from other games in the Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA series, but the collection differing between a “Future Tone” and “Colorful Tone” versions. Future Tone focuses on games from the “main” titles, such as Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F, and Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Extend. Colorful Tone meanwhile focuses on the arcade version of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva and Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX.

In the meantime, SEGA has set up an English teaser website, which can be found here.

Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone gets rated for Germany

Project-DIVA-Arcade-Future-ToneThe USK, the rating board for Germany has recently revealed that they rated Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone for the PlayStation 4. So what is different from Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone compared to both Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X and Hatsune Miku: VR Future Live that came out earlier this year? Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone is actually a console port of the highly acclaimed Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Arcade, plus other music from previously released game like the Project Mirari series on the Nintendo 3DS. The game was rated USK 6 which means its family friendly but the game is more complex in nature. The listing also says that it was filed by Atlus U.S.A., Inc.

Here is a description of what Hasune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone is via Wikipedia:

“SEGA announced that the company was porting Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Arcade Future Tone to the PlayStation 4 under the title Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone. On May 27, 2016, a new trailer was released on the official YouTube channel of the series, which announced that there will be two versions of the game, Future Sound and Colorful Tone. Future Sound includes 127 songs from the Project DIVA series, while 95 songs from the Arcade and Project mirai series can be played in Colorful Tone. In total, over 340 outfits can be unlocked across both versions.The games support a screen resolution of 1080p at a refresh rate of 60 frames per second.”

I’m hoping that SEGA West decides to release both ‘Future Sound’ and ‘Colorful Tone’ as one package because I feel like having four different Hatsune Miku releases, all on PlayStation 4, during the same calendar year is a bit much but I have a feeling this is only Future Sound. Again this is only for the German rating, but let’s be honest, this pretty much confirms that the game is coming out. Right?

Latest Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X Japanese sale numbers are troubling

Hatsunemikuopeningmovie5While Japan got Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X on the PlayStation Vita back in March, the PlayStation 4 version didn’t debut there until August 25, 5 days before the western release. The next generation version of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X came in at number 8 on the Japanese Top 20 chart selling only 12,915 units which is way down on what Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd made when it debuted.

Let’s break down the debut week sales for the Project Diva X and Project Diva F 2nd:

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd: 

  • PlayStation Vita: 98,628 units
  • PlayStation 3: 59,965 units
  • Total: 158,593 units

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X: 

  • PlayStation Vita: 79,511 units
  • PlayStation 4: 12,915 units
  • Total: 92,426 units

Also understand that Project Diva F 2nd had troubles selling as well as the previous game, Project Diva F manage to sell 154,000 units its first week on sale and even when that was revealed people online said that was just okay. Even sadder to think is that Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Extended, a re-release on PSP with added content, sold 184,673 units in its debut week. SEGA still has another release for later this year with Hatsune Miku: VR Future Live which will be debuting world wide in October. What are your opinions on these numbers? Is there just too many Hatsune Miku titles?
