Nintendo previously revealed some new features for Vocaloid Miku’s upcoming cute Nendoroid-based rhythm game, Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai 2, during a showing of Nintendo Direct. As we reported, the game will feature more songs and costumes than the previous game, including a new touch screen mode.
For those who prefer the Touch Mode that was the main play-style of the first Project Mirai, it will still be available. The above images are a look at the Touch Mode gameplay.
In addition to hitting the markers with the right timing that goes with the song, the more difficult settings will increase it up to three different marker colors.
The thicker lines seen on the trail will require you to hold down the touch screen part, and when it is rainbow-colored you’ll be required to spin it around in circles. Those of you who’ve played Theatrhythm Final Fantasy may be familiar with the markers with arrows pointing different directions, which requires you to drag your stylus in the same direction on any part of the touch screen.
Here’s a look at the classic Button Mode, which was used in Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai, except this time it will have a few new twists.
In addition to the A, B, X, and Y buttons, you’ll also need to use the directional D pad for certain keys.
Similar to the Touch Mode gameplay part, you’ll be required to hold down the buttons for the ticker lines. The rainbow colored parts can be done by rotating the Circle Pad in circles.
There are also 2 Line parts that require both uses of the A, B, X, and Y buttons along with directional buttons, at the same time.
The Vocal Change system that allowed you to switch the Vocaloid singer from the first version will also be back in Project Mirai 2. The above is a look at Vocaloid Meiko’s Piano x Forte x Scandal track. In addition to Meiko, you’ll also get to hear Miku, Rin and Kaito’s versions of the song, as well.
This track is set in a thrilling night, where the Vocaloids will perform on the neon stage. It is mentioned that Meiko will be showing a side of her that we don’t often get to see!
The next featured track is “1/6 -out of the gravity-”. The track is said to lighten the heart of anyone who listens to it. The designs for this track were done by Nendoroid and it features an original Miku costume with large ribbons and a frilly dress.
Here’s a look at some costumes you’ll get to use in the My Room and 3D model features:
Snow Miku Ichigo Shiromuku version.
“1/6 -out of the gravity-” original costume.
The above images are another look at Meiko, Kaito, Miku and Rin in their thief motif Piano x Forte x Scandal costumes.
Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai 2 is slated for release this fall in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS.
