Hatsune Miku, the most iconic face from the Vocaloid series of singing synthesizers, has been in video games before. In 2009 she (it?) gets a PSP game of her own thanks to Sega. Hatsune Miku: Project Diva (temporary title) is a music game where players press buttons to hit shooting star notes. Perform well in the rhythm game mode and you get access to virtual furniture to decorate her room. According to Famitsu the song list will have a blend of licensed music from famous artists, upcoming artists, and original songs.
The trailer Sega released has a catchy song and the first gameplay video (second clip) shows this isn’t going to be as tough to master as DJ Max Portable. While it may not be as “hardcore” Hatsune Miku: Project Diva looks like a lot of fun.
