Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX Delayed Until September, Gains Special Edition
We have to wait a little longer, but we get so much more in return!
I'm a big Hatsune Miku fan personally, and have followed the twintailed phenomenon through her diminutive stage on PSP all the way to the PlayStation 3. I'm excited to finally get my hands on Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX when it hits, which was previously near the end of this month, but now it's unfortunately been moved back to September 8 in North America and September 11 in Europe.
The game will still be the same price, though Sega will be offering a special physical Launch Edition across several different retailers. So while we still have a while to wait on the actual game itself, this is actually great news. The special edition will come with a special package to hold everything including the game, as well as a wallet chain and 19 double-sided augmented reality cards that players can use to unlock new costumes for Miku and additional dance moves.
Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX features a special (and super cute) version of Miku herself, as a collaboration with Good Smile Company, who you might remember as the originator and distributor of "Nendoroid" toys, hence Miku's super-deformed look and hyper-cute look for this game.
If you've played the other games in the series you'll want to get your hands on this one as well, as it will include 48 songs to groove along to with either "Tap Mode" or "Button Mode." With the veritable dearth of rhythm games out there these days and Guitar Hero and Rock Band on the verge of making a comeback, supporting games like this is not only good for you, but a good idea in general.
