SEGA has announced the global release dates for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS title Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX! The game will be releasing to North America on May 26th of this year, hitting both store shelves and Nintendo’s digital download service the eShop. Fans in Japan and Korea can expect a May 28th release, and Europe will follow on May 29th. Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX isn’t your usual Hatsune Miku game, as SEGA has teamed with Good Smile Company to present the characters in their chibi-style Nendoroid figure style. You may remember that Miku and Sonic got the Nendoroid treatment, and as somebody who owns the Sonic figure, I can tell you that Good Smile Company does a fantastic job with both the physical figures, and the Nendoroid redesign.

Hatsune Miku got too annoying already for me. ;/ They recycled the game way too much, and song quality went down comparing with first games. By the way the chibi design in Mirai project feels really sluggish…. Perhaps to decrease the cost? Not like i really care though as long as Sega milk some money from this IP.
Yeah, this game probably won’t be good for people who have followed these project games for a while. But for American people, these are all pretty much new songs. I mean, even though some songs are repeated, they’re full versions. And songs like R&C feature luka and rin as switchable vocals.
