This Game Is Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Mixed With Hakuoki

Bakamatsu Rock is a wild idea from Senran Kagura developer Marvelous AQL. It’s a rhythm game set in feudal Japan where you play as Sakamoto Ryoma – rock star Sakamoto Ryoma. The Shinsengumi are brainwashing people using the Heaven’s Song. You can break their control by tapping notes on beat just like Hatsune Miku: Project Diva.




The game has a story which unfolds like a comic. Bakumatsu Rock is slated for release on February 27, 2014 for PSP.

    At first I was like “oh wow, this sounds cool,” but then I saw it was for PSP and had to put my excitement in check. No use getting excited for something that’ll never come out here.

    Oh to hell with it, I still want this.

      Rhythm games are usually fairly easy to get into even if you don’t speak any Japanese. I’ve imported the Taiko no Tatsujin DS games and Hatsune Miku PSP games and had no problem playing them.

  • Time to bring the PSP out of its packaging again.
