    Oh, man! That’s awesome! I didn’t really listen to Gumi much before, but I’ve really taken a liking to her as of late. 

    Some of the songs I’d love to see make it officially are For my Soul, Holography, Rosetta, Marygold, Poker Face, Carnival…they’re just so many! Holography, though, I’d really like to see. (>y<)

    I was wondering when Gumi would officially be featured in Project Diva, but it turns out they’re giving Gumi her own game! Awesome! ლ(´ڡ`ლ)

  • Dokurochan

    Pipiru piru pipiru pi~!!!!!!!!! I am sooo excited that Gumi is finally getting her own game!! XD I’m hoping that it won’t just be Gumi only though and that they include the other Internet Co Vocaloids, like Gakupo and Lily. Sorta like how the Project Diva series, despite only having Miku’s name in the title, also feature the rest of the Crypton Vocaloids. ^_^

    • aoihana

      I didn’t even think about how this game can open up other Internet Co. Vocaloids. I’d love to see Gakupo’s Paranoid Doll and Episode.0, so I wonder if that will be the case! 

  • ShugoTakahashi

    No “Wan Wan Oh!”, no buy.

  • DanijoEX

    I wasn’t expecting this…but I’ll take it!

    So uh I take this isn’t a SEGA game right?  I wonder how it will play.

    • aoihana

      That’s actually what I’m wondering, too, since the article doesn’t mention SEGA(or a developer, period), but I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re developing it. Gumi was in Project Mirai, after all. Either way, I’m excited! (◕‿◕✿)

    • http://twitter.com/b_crucis mimosa☆

      It’s by a developer called Paraphre (パラフレ). Never heard of em before and searching didn’t turn up much of use, so they might be new?

    Ikasama Life Game and you can have my first, second, and third born children.  

  • tubers

    Nice :) Adds a little more oomph for vocaloid awareness :)

  • Rirath

    I’ve always thought that boxart and default style is rather unfortunate, but Gumi actually my fav of all the Volcaloids.  Her voice always sounds incredible.

      I’m not really into the box art and original character design at first glance either. Her Nendoroid figures look really cute though.

    Oh please, please, please let “Life Cheating Game” be in, please.

    Please please please include Mozaik Role and Yowamushi Mont Blanc

  • IkouKuhn

    OH YEAH!
    I’ve been waiting for this >.<
    Gumi is my fav vocaloid all the time!!
    It's a shame she can't appear in Project Diva (yeah those licensing stuff, I get it)
    but getting a single game for herself?!
    this is really unexpected!
    oh I'm so happy right now!

  • Raze

    Someone can tell me…
    I like playing Project Diva…But I don’t really now vocaloid things…

    Uhh so is it the same kind of project diva game with 1 character?

  • pantsonadog

    So much yess! Gumi is so underrated she deserves this.

  • http://www.facebook.com/matthew.ponthier Matthew Ponthier

    So much win!  GUMI is my favorite vocaloid.  She has the most pleasant voice out of all of them and it’s a shame she’s so underrated.

  • rebecasunao

    Omggggggggggggg YES!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://twitter.com/Neilikki Neilikki

    Though it would be nicer if it was a game for all of the Internet Co Vocaloids.
    It would be good for Lily and CUL especially.

    • rebecasunao

      Also AH Software! Miki, Yuki and Iroha would be pretty popular :3

  • Mister_Nep

    All the comments seem to be from people who know something about this so I’ll ask. What’s Megpoid?

    • http://twitter.com/Neilikki Neilikki

      Gumi’s voice provider name is MEGUMI. The second part comes from VOCALOID.
      You get it? MEGUMI VOCALOID = MEGPOID

      Internet Co thought it will be a cool name to call her.

      It’s not.

      • Mister_Nep

        So she’s part of the Vocaloid group? Then why is she getting her own game rather be part of the Project Diva group? Is there a reason for that?

        • http://twitter.com/Neilikki Neilikki

          Lol no no no.
          Vocaloid is a voice synthesizing technology developed by Yamaha.
          This technology is then being licensed to other companies who record voice banks create characters and then market them.
          One of those companies is Crypton Future Media.
          They are the company that made Meiko, Kaito, Miku Luka and the Kagamine Twins aka those characters you see in Project Diva (which is a game on CFM license, so only their Vocaloids are in it)
          They are probably most mainstream in western world so people who aren’t into Vocaloids associate them the most with the whole Vocaloid concept and then may mistake them for being the only ones or the only official ones.
          But that’s a misconception.
          There are many many Vocaloids, in fact about 40+ that come from a variety of companies.
          One of those companies is Internet Co.
          They made Gumi, Gakupo, Lily, CUL and Ryuuto.
          There are others like AHS Software, 1st Place or SBS Artech. Yamaha itself also made two.

          So in short.

          Miku’s and co creators = Crypton

          VOCALOID creators = Yamaha

          VOCALOID singers = licensed from Yamaha

          Cryptonloids = characters from Project Diva and most known Vocaloids.

          • Mister_Nep

            Oh I see. Thank ya kindly for all the information!

  • kroufonz

    megu megu faia!

    I fell in love in Happy Synthesizer while playing Project Mirai and had been following new songs by Gumi on weekly Vocaloid rankings, at least this game will be really fun to listen.

    Would be nice if it is as fun as SEGA’s Project Diva & K-On! games and better than rhythm game portions from previous Idolm@ster games. Idolm@ster: Live 4 You aren’t really that fun to play on Xbox360.

    Can’t Tell How Happy I am Now!!! (^ o ^  ) Another one for PSP!
    I’m so glad that I had PSP now!!!

  • Nightmesh

    I hope Heartbreak Headlines is in this game. Also if they put Lily in here they better have -Error!

  • ninjamitsuki

    I hope Gakupo and Lily can be in it, too!
