Is This Atlus RPG Character Inspired By Hatsune Miku?

This article is over 13 years old and may contain outdated information

Vocaloid idol Hatsune Miku made a few video game cameos and lent her signature costume to many other titles including Tales of Graces. Nora and the Time Studio: The Witch of the Foggy Forest, a new Nintendo DS RPG from Atlus and Atelier series storywriter Shinichi Yoshiike, doesn’t officially have Hatsune Miku. Mellow may be inspired by her.

Nora finds Mellow who is lost in a garden. Mellow is a gentle girl who always has a smile on her face, even though she lost her memory. She joins Nora as a playable character.

Mellow looks somewhat like Hatsune Miku. Atlus’ artists appear to have used the same palette, but that’s not the strongest connection between the two characters.

Hatsune Miku’s "voice" is made from samples from voice actress Saki Fujita… who also happens to voice Mellow in Nora and the Time Studio.


Nora and the Time Studio: The Witch of the Foggy Forest comes out on July 21 in Japan.
