Hatsune Miku Heads To PS VR
Get Your Glow Sticks Ready
Sega announced today that Hatsune Miku, the world’s most popular vocaloid character, is headed towards the Playstation VR with “Hatsune Miku: VR Future Live” next week.
Miku’s virtual reality experience will coincide with the release of the Playstation VR on October 13, a day earlier than anticipated for “VR Future Live.” Aside from being transported to a stadium concert where they can move around as they please, VR players can also wave their glowsticks in time with the music in order to unlock more easter eggs. A total of three songs will be played during the entire experience, two of which are chosen by the player and the last one performed as a solo encore.
“The concert reacts to you, showering the stage in light and effects that exceed the constraints of our boring old physical world,” Sam Mullen described in a post he made for the Playstation Blog. Mullen is the North American producer for Sega’s Project Diva series.
“Hatsune Miku: VR Future Live” can be downloaded for free from the Playstation Network, but the actual stages where concerts are held will cost $14.99. A trial version of the software will let players try out the game with one song. There are three different stages planned for release, with the first one available right away. The first stage contains the following seven tracks:
- "Love Trial" by 40mP
- "1/6 - out of the gravity -" by noa
- "Satisfaction" by kz
- "Weekender Girl" by kz and Hachioji P
- "39" by DECO*27 and sasakure.UK
- "Cute Medley - Idol Sounds" by Mitchie M
- "Love Song" by Lamaze-P
“VR Future Live” will mark the latest Hatsune Miku title in the series, following after the August 30 release of the rhythm game “Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X” for both Playstation 4 and Vita. Mullen also mentioned that “Project Diva X” will receive a “VR-enabling patch . . . that will enable [players] to view concerts [they] created using the Concert Editor.”
