What Do Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker And Hatsune Miku Have In Common?

By Spencer . December 3, 2009 . 1:54am


Konami formally announced Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker’s release date in Japan and if you haven’t heard it’s March 18, 2010.


The news came with a batch of screenshots and a reminder the game utilizes Yamaha’s Vocaloid technology. You know Hatsune Miku? She’s a Vocaloid character. That software, but not necessarily Hatsune Miku, will be used to add singing to the Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

  • Ooo, now that I’m getting a PSP I’m quite interested in this game… but I hate not understanding the storyline in games heavy on it, this being the case, so I’ll probably have to pass on it not having played any other Metal Gear game.

      Oh, don’t do that, the MGS storyline MAY be a little convoluted, but I’m sure you can enjoy Peace Walker as it’s own game, and maybe it will even get you to play other MGs! Not to mention that it looks awesome

        You don’t have to do that. Keep in mind that within MGS’s timeline, this game takes place before 5 other games, and after two other ones. I’d recommended playing other MGS games though, if your into stealthy type games. The multi-generational storyline is abit convoluted, but still, the stories are awesome imo. MGS is my favorite game series, and I can’t wait for MG 5.

  • what?… wait… so snake… will sing? O_O

    If that isn’t a missed opportunity for a cross-promotion with Project DIVA, I don’t know what is.

    This whole Miku thing has spun so out of control, they HAVE to release a game or two stateside.

    Practically the world world knows who Miku is. =_=;

    • Actually i realized it wasnt an anime and, more like a sound sintetizer last week… i saw another (of millions ive seen) picture of her, and though “i think is freaking time to know who the hell is this girl, and if its an anime i will have to check it out dammit it must be good to be this popular”, google time, and the strong truth came into my face.

    • Well….judging from my avatar. I like listening to vocaloid. But really it sorta has spun out of control, there’s a gazillion new songs made very day, and several new vocaloids coming out, i can’t keep track! It’s overwhelming!
