Yup. A Hatsune Miku game has finally made it overseas. Miku Flick is an iOS game available on iPhone and iPad devices for a hefty (for iOS) $13.99. Published by Sega, Miku Flick comes with several of Hatsune Miku’s most popular songs. I know not a single one of them since I’m not a fan myself, but I do know her popularity is big enough that this is huge news for Miku fans. Who knows? If enough Miku fans buy this game, we may see more of her games arrive in the U.S. and Europe.
Even though SEGA has posted the terrible news that a lot of projects would be canceled; then revealing that only franchises like Sonic, Aliens and a few others would be safe. So what will happen to the Hatsune Miku development team?
Seems that they get to develop a new Hatsune Miku game. SEGA has just put up the teaser site for an upcoming new game in the Hatsune Miku universe. Will this new title finally mark Hatsune Miku‘s debut on Playstation Vita?
SEGA has released a new teaser via the Hatsune Miku official blog, this trailer is teasing an upcoming game for 2012. Since the style looks like a refined version of the PSP titles, I assume this is going to be Project Diva‘s debut on Playstation Vita. What do you guys think?
This week Famitsu released the date and name of the new 3DS Hatsune Miku game. The game is being titled Hatsune Miku and Future Stars Project Mirai.
The game is going to be released in Japan on March 8th 2012. This also happens to be the release date for Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D, meaning that SEGA really isn’t good at picking release date for their games. SEGA also has two versions of the game planned, the regular version (¥6,090) and the limited edition version (¥7,140).
Above is the debut trailer that SEGA showed back in September. Not much new is known outside the above info.
Nintendo had a press conference in Japan tonight, and while there was nothing new revealed on the SEGA front, there were some new videos and screenshots of several upcoming 3DS games.
We got a Sonic Generations video which showed what I believe to be the most footage we’ve seen from Mushroom Hill so far. It also contains the first screenshot of the Metal Sonic race. We also got new footage and screens for Rhythm Thief and the new Hatsune Miku game Project Mirai.
Famitsu had a pretty nice article on the upcoming PSP RPG 7th Dragon 2020. First is the release date, which is October 27th.
Next is a cameo by Project Diva star Hatsune Miku, who will be in the game. She is being called “Hatsune Miku 2020″. Shirou Miwa, character designer for 7th Dragon 2020 will draw the in-game version of Hatsune Miku, to fit the game’s unique art style.
She will also be singing SeventH-HeaveN from sasukure.UK. Which will be on the official 7th Dragon 2020 website tomorrow.
Famitsu has listed Project Diva 2.5 as the new Hatsune Miku game, available for PSP. No other details have been given, but be sure to keep an eye on SEGAbits to get the latest news. SEGA is set to officially announce the game on their website here.
SEGA has published 3 games featuring the popular Vocaloid star Hatsune Miku. If you haven’t heard, she is not a real person, but her hardcore fans seem to think her character is and seem to have a weird obsession with her.
One fan thought he had all the Hatsune Miku he needed, then figured that he didn’t have a really detailed naked figurine of her. So what does he do? Make one himself. You think that is weird? He put it up for auction Yahoo! Auctions (Japanese service) and got $6,000 dollars for it.
SEGA, the people have spoken. Release a limited number of naked Hatsune Miku figures for $2,000 dollars each. Seems like a deal! Hit the jump to see the figures bottom half.
Shoplifting is no good and being caught is embarrassing. A 15-year-old tried to steal a Hatsune Miku figure, just outside of Tokyo in the Chiba Prefecture. The figure he tried to take was worth $87. The teen was caught by a part-time clerk (29 years old) and a security guard (32).
What will you do when you are 15, getting caught stealing a anime doll by two adults? Do you call it quits? You don’t know Japan. He decided to attack both of them. As expected, the clerk and security only suffered minor injuries.
Obviously there is some odd craze for this franchise, that is why it was the best selling SEGA game for Q2 in Japan. Keep being crazy Japan, we love it.
