Hatsune Miku and Future Stars: Project Mirai Café Opens For Business


Hatsune Miku and Future Stars: Project Mirai’s art style is heavily Nendoroid-inspired, so naturally, Sega are collaborating with the Good Smile Company to promote the game. This is being done in the form of a Project Mirai café, GSC’s Mikatan reveals via the company blog, along with photos of the café itself.


Depending on where you’re seated, you’ll see different Vocaloid characters on the tables. You don’t get to pick where you’re seated, though. A monitor displays one of the movies from Project Mirai, and music from the game is played in the background at the café.


The café also features a menu based around Miku and Luka, and there are plans to have the menu change every so often. Up above are two examples. The Miku drink is a lemon soda with blue curacao and vanilla ice cream. The Luka drink is a strawberry au lait with vanilla ice cream.



A more interesting aspect of the café is the part featuring concept art and storyboards for the game. The costumes above are from the “Daughter of Evil” and “Servant of Evil” songs. The Good Smile Company went back and forth with Sega on the game’s design to make sure the Vocaloids looked like their Nendoroid versions.


Pictured above is one of the storyboards. This is from “Yume Yume,” the game’s opening theme song. 


Hatsune Miku and Future Stars: Project Mirai was released on March 8th for the Nintendo 3DS. As always, we’ll get to find out on Wednesday how the game sold.
