Hatsune Miku Bundles Up For Winter With More Modules


Hatsune Miku: Project Diva 2nd on the PSP is celebrating two events in the near future. The first is the annual Sapporo Snow Festival (being held for the 62nd time this year), which runs from Jan 27th through Feb 13th at Sapporo, Japan.


The Sapporo Snow Festival takes place at Sapporo, the largest city on the island of Hokkaido every year, and features snow statues built with motifs of places around the world. The event is held in cooperation with Japan’s Self Defense Force, members of which built the festival’s very first massive snow sculpture in 1955. The festival also hosts events like snow slides and mazes, and tends to attract a lot of tourists to the area.


In honour of the festival, Sega are outfitting Vocaloid star, Hatsune Miku, with her usual Snow Miku winter costume for 300 yen over the PlayStation Network on Jan 27th. You can view a full-body image here. Sega released one of these back in 2010 as well. Here’s a quick comparison of the two outfits (2010 on the left):


Meanwhile, also coming up is pink-haired Vocaloid beauty Megurine Luka’s birthday. In celebration of this, Sega are releasing a Luka witch costume, also for 300 yen, on January 30th. Here’s a look:

Also coming in celebration of Luka’s birthday are digital room items. These go for 100 yen each. Sega are offering items like banners, virtual shelf figurines and a poster.

Here’s a clearer look at that poster, and another shot of the Witch:
