See The Lights And Vocaloid Vita Game IA/VT Colorful

By Spencer . March 27, 2014 . 11:46pm

After Hatsune Miku: Project Diva 2nd, the next Vocaloid to the take the Vita stage is IA. Marvelous AQL and Senran Kagura producer Kenichiro Takaki created IA/VT Colorful. Like other music games players tap buttons to the beat, but there is a twist in IA/VT Colorful since it changes the experience depending on how you play the game.

 

The game has over 60 songs and an option to play one recommended song each day that you haven’t unlocked. Players can check their rankings on network mode.

 

IA/VT Colorful is scheduled to come out on July 31 for PlayStation Vita.

    Sold! I have been waiting for a video to see this game in motion and it looks awesome. Excited to see more games in the rythm game genre. Not sure what the prospects for localizing look like on this but should be import friendly regardless.

    • Histirea

      Rhythm games are pretty import friendly. It’s nice.

      • Micrll

        Most of them, the only one that is rather unfriendly (other than region locked games) to non-native speakers is Sega’s Project 575 since the game actually uses lyrics as part of the game.

  • Milewide

    Let’s hope this turns out to be as good as it looks. Miku needs some healthy competition in the gaming space.

  • MXC

    Woah! if this game is full of songs like See the lights then this may well be my first import. I liked project diva but couldn’t get into the majority of the songs. On the other hand, I managed to do extreme on songs like Dye, either due to really feeling it or due to my love for Luka whichever comes first.

    I’m having huge old DJMax portable nostalgia right now and I’m loving it after watching the video of this game. Seems like another import is coming. Damnit, now I have Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX!!!!! and this to worry about.

  • crimsonidol

    This trailer just tells me that it was a good decision to pre-order this game

  • cyberkinghardy

    Will the character strip if you clear the song? :3

    • AkuLord3

      how DARE you! You keep that vulgar mindset to yourself~

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      This is IA not senran

      • Histirea

        I’m pretty sure it’s a joke, since IA/VT and Senran Kagura are from the same producer.

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          I know shush

    • nonscpo

      Your thinking of Dekamori Senran Kagura which is a totally different game, same publisher though.

  • Hiro

    Soooo many Kagerou songs! <3

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 禍津水樹 (MagatsuMizuki)

    I love IA so I have to get this

  • GodLikesSnacks

    MY BIGGEST REASON TO BUY A PSVITA!
    I don’t really know many songs from IA, but with this game this will change!
    I wonder if “Tale of Six Trillion Years and One Night” will be on the list, that’s my favourite!

  • Yan Zhao

    Whats in that Collector’s Edition shown at the end? Might need to import that D:

    • GodLikesSnacks

      -Main game
      [Limited Edition Bonus]
      -Pouch
      -PS Vita special seal x2 (for PCH-1000, PCH-2000 x1 each)

      Too bad it was already sold out on the first day of pre-ordering. :(

      • Shippoyasha

        Limited editions are a bit too limited in Japan nowadays. I remember the Senran Kagura 2 limited edition was sold out instantly too. It’s way too fast.

      • Yan Zhao

        Hmm those additions arent that big of a deal for me. Im mainly a sucker for artbooks and figures or some sort of display object i put on my desk hehe.

  • tubers

    Just hope those aren’t mostly 2 minute samplers.

  • Shippoyasha

    While I love more calm and coordinated song and dance visuals like in Project Diva so far, I can get behind the hyper kinetic, outright synesthesia style motif in this game.

  • Rose Spinoza

    Gods, I love IA’s voice so much <3 .

    • Milewide

      It has a good foundation. :)

  • TheExile285

    Ah, this looks cool.

  • [ Lilith ]

    I have been waiting six trillion years and an overnight for this. Good thing I pre-ordered the Crystal Box version <3

    • http://danierc-polloconpapas.tumblr.com/ Eduardo Rocha

      Ugh…. I hope I can still get it when I decide to get it :c

      • [ Lilith ]

        Better hurry if you want it, some big websites are already sold out (ToT)

        • http://danierc-polloconpapas.tumblr.com/ Eduardo Rocha

          The problem is I don’t have money right now D: I need to save for Ragnarok Odyssey, Conception II and Demon Gaze! :C Guess I’ll have to try out my luck and see if someone’s selling it on amazon when it comes out u_u

          • Testsubject909

            “don’t have money right now”

            game releases in July.

            That’s 3 months from now…

          • http://danierc-polloconpapas.tumblr.com/ Eduardo Rocha

            “Better hurry if you want it”

            That’s what Lilith said, which is the reason why I said I have no money right now. Also, it’s a limited edition, which means they may stopped accepting pre-orders on it after a certain time.

          • [ Lilith ]

            If I recall correctly, you can choose to pay pre-orders now or before release xD

          • http://danierc-polloconpapas.tumblr.com/ Eduardo Rocha

            I did that with Danganronpa but I had the money since the day I pre-ordered it. I don’t like to pre-order online stuff without having the money :l And worst if I can’t guarantee I’ll have the money, there are a bunch of games I want to get right now and unless I get a job on summer I won’t be able to get all of them on release :C

    • Altumn

    • Thulsa

      Pre-ordered my Crystal Box too and can’t wait for this one :) It will go great with the aquamarine PVC figure I bought a month ago

  • http://danierc-polloconpapas.tumblr.com/ Eduardo Rocha

    I’ve had my eye on this game since it was announce and after watching this I’m definetly importing it *^* THE GAME LOOKS BEAUTIFUL! I may wait just a little to see if a localization is announced.

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    Damn this game looks amazing! See The Lights was the perfect choice for this trailer too. Both importing and buying a localized version if it happens. So hyped for this =^_^=

  • Kai2591

    Cool trailer :)

    What song is that?

    • DyLaN

      Rewatch the PV and look at the bottom right.

    Gitaroo Man realness!

  • http://resettears.wordpress.com/ Reset Tears

    I still don’t get what anyone means when it says the experience changes depending on how you play the game. The video was very nice, but I don’t know what to make of any of this crazy stuff flying about the screen.

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    I love IA so I’m extremely happy about this

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    Does anyone know the name of the song in the trailer?

    • PoweredByHentai

      The title is “SEE THE LIGHTS”.

      It is in the article’s title.

      • s07195

        I didn’t get the reference until I started the video, and then BAM, SEE THE LIGHTS.
        Holy shit, that was awesome. I’ve played SEE THE LIGHTS on another rhythm game on iPad.

  • PoweredByHentai

    This game was listed on AmiAmi and instantly sold out. I got lucky in that they re-opened pre-orders the following day.

    • Testsubject909

      I got mine pre-ordered via Nippon-Yasan.

      My prior experience with them was positive.

      And right now it’s thanks to them that I’m getting my hands on my physical copy of Genkai Tokki Monster Monpiece…

      That said. Nippon-Yasan are still taking pre-orders for the Limited Edition version of IA/VT.

  • s07195

    Hm, it may not be the same style as Project Diva, but I can get behind this kind of playstyle. Now all I need to do is to get a Vita. T_T

    I’m not a fan of Kagerou Project, so I wonder how it’ll do when one quarter of the songs seem to be from that series… even on Niconico, Kagerou Project gets a bit of flak.

    ….No Bookmark of Demise songs? >.>

  • Izzeltrioum

    So Project Diva killer has arrived, huh.

    I find this more appealing to be honest. This will be a must-must addition for my vita!

  • TheLastBattalion

    Day 1 buy.
    No doubt about it.

  • Testsubject909

    I was wondering what that was when I saw it on AmiAmi…

    *sighs and tosses credit card at the screen*

  • http://so-very.me/ Jenny

    Give it to me nao!!
