What Do Hatsune Miku, Rise Kujikawa And μ Have In Common?

By Eugene . November 27, 2013 . 4:05pm


A Dingo. Not that dingo (although, Australia will have you know it’s a pretty important animal). We’re talking about the developer Dingo. Unless you’ve been diligently connecting the dots, you might be surprised to know these are the guys who are doing two music games that Vita owners are anticipating.


They’re behind Persona 4: Dancing All Night, parts of the Hatsune Miku: Project Diva series as well as upcoming Love Live! School Idol Paradise Vol 1. Printemps. That makes them almost kings of rhythm games for Sony’s handhelds right now. And if we found Project Diva to be all right, that should let us breathe a little easier on Dancing All Night and Love Live!


That said, we still have very few details on Printemps. While we know you’ll be helping to organize the idol band μ, teaser screenshots from Dengeki do suggest that there’s going to be a pretty deep integration between the game’s rhythm modes and what you do beforehand.


The Days Setlist picture, for example, shows two of the girls suggesting which songs they should open a concert with, such as “From This Day Forth’s Someday” or “No Brand Girls”. Whether you choose to take them up on it could possibly affect the idols. You don’t want to see an upset super-deformed face cute girl cry do you? I sure don’t, but which will you choose?


Love Live! School Idol Paradise Vol. 1 Printemps is scheduled for a May 29 2014 release on the Vita.

    I’m curious! How did they end up together in one game?

    • SnackEater

      Is your avatar Eucliwood?!

      • Kaetsu

        I think it’s a character from “Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka?”

    • tubers

      I don’t think that was the message.

      Article’s just saying that earlier PJDs, P4D, and LL! are projects where Dingo (devs/studio) is involved.

      • Servant BerserCAR

        You beat me to that answer.

        Although I really REALLY don’t mind if I can see them all together in one game.

      • fyi1191

        Sorry, I mean the characters actually. 1 of them is suppose to be in another version.

    • Subaru

      Yeah, I wonder. μ’s released some singles as mini units, each consisting of 3 members. “Printemps” features Honoka, Hanayo and Kotori…


      so I thought this would also be the case with the same-named game. The screenshot above proves otherwise…

    As long as I get my Idol Chie, this is day! :P

    Probably day one regardless since Persona music is nice

    • Kaetsu

      She was announced as a character in the trailer. The trailer said “The Hero, Rise, Chie, Kanji, Yosuke, Naoto(I think) and more”

      • Demeanor

        How in blazes did they manage to get NAOTO dancing in front of an audience???

        • Metalsnakezero

          Rise had her way with her :D

          • Charles Parker

            Guess the dancing game is going with weirdly girly fanservice Naoto from the novel then.

        • DyLaN

          TV world.

      • junkpuyo

        6th character is Kanami, the idol who replaced Rise, not Naoto.

      • TrueDefault

        Kanji? Kanji?!? Awesome!

  • Erena Arisu

    Love Live~~~ i love them the anime was super cute gonna get this in the future and season 2 next year~

  • Guest

    Aren’t they all the 3 versions getting released on the same day since they’re in sets of 3 girls?

  • Xerain

    Yeah, I connected those dots immediately. That’s why I was immediately excited.

  • Kayseur

    Love Live! School Idol Paradise is my most awaited game of next year (maybe with Freedom Wars), so I hope we’ll be able to see some new teasers soon, I’d like to see the kind of pattern they chose to go with for the rhythm game part.

    And I’d like to see Maki.

  • pekikuubik

    It’s μ’s (pronounced like muse), not μ.

  • Thomaz Barros

    A Dildo you say?
