Nendoroid-style Hatsune Miku coming west after all.

Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai Remix

Sega announced Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai Remix (working title) for 3DS during its fifth anniversary talk show event this morning.

Due out in North America, Europe, and Asia in 2015, the game is an enhanced version of Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai 2, which launched in Japan last November. It marks the first release of the Project Mirai series outside of Japan, as well as its first appearance on a Nintendo platform outside the country.

The game features characters rendered in stereoscopic 3D, button and touch rhythm game modes, and three difficulties per song.

Players will be able to customize button icons and sounds, character costumes, and gear for character rooms, as well as create and share personalized player cards, dance routines, musical phrases, and personalized comments about in-game videos via StreetPass.

Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai Remix will also make use of the Nintendo handheld’s AR card and photo capabilities.

    Awesome? Awesome!
    Not let’s just hope for a retail release

  • kurosan9712

    I’ll laugh a lot if it’s…just the FIRST game. Considering the logo style…it sure seems like that.

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      Don’t see why it would be that. The second game included all the songs from the first game anyway. And if this is supposed to be the “complete edition” as Sega says, it’s likely Mirai 2.

      Edit: Also, the logo style, as you mention, is almost the exact same logo as Mirai 2, rather than Mirai 1:


      Edit 2: Dengeki says it’s the localized version of the Project Mirai series, so yeah, going with 2.

      • kurosan9712

        Oh, perhaps. Haven’t taken out the boxes for these from my shelves for a long time(kinda since…february or what?), so could have forgotten.
        Just checked – yeah, more like Mirai 2.

    I guess the west can’t handle being Miku-less…

    • Six

      Those dark days are behind us.

      • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

        And now, instead of dark, it’s all about the disco fever…apparently. O_o

  • Renaldi Saputra

    yeah, meanwhile Phantasy Star series….

    • An Tran

      The problem is the Sonic series. We all need to stop buying the subpar Sonic games that they churn out. Then, maybe, they’ll see that we westerners want something of actual high quality (PS series).

      • Guest

        By this fandom’s standards, everything not 2D is subpar, so I’ll decide their quality for myself, and I’ve enjoyed the last few Sonic games. =P Even Lost World, though it seemed mildly lacking on closure.

      • Thatguy

        Nah, we’ll just stop getting Sonic games. That is all.

        • Guest

          That’d be a very stupid thing to do.

      • Budgiecat

        Don’t look at me. I haven’t bought a Sonic game since Dreamcast….

  • DanijoEX ♬ the Cosmic Owltron

    Just what I needed to hear.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    ~~~~~~~~~~( ^o^)/

  • http://Gematsu.com Vayne

    The main reason to do these remix, is the west.

  • Wolf Star

    Another reason to have my 3DS :D now I have all miku games :D (except for PSP games)

  • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

    Post updated.

  • TimRobbins

    Diva F 2nd and now Mirai 2? I’m glad the west is embracing these games, and that Sega is controlling the property. They may not be the best at handling their own IPs, but as a publisher they’ve really been top notch the this generation and last.

    • Quetzalcoatl9999

      I just wish they localize their Yakuza games :(

    • Budgiecat

      What parallel world you live in?

      • TimRobbins

        Just because they haven’t yet localized *insert my favorite game here* doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the games they have brought over. Phantasy Star and Yakuza fans rarely agree with that position, I understand.

        • Budgiecat

          You realize ALL Sega is localizing these days IS Miku? the majority of their library is either in stasis or stuck in Japan.

          No, Sonic don’t count.

          SEGA is barely alive at this point. What’s really keeping them financially relevant is SAMMY.
          that’s where the real money is coming from (Casinos).

  • DarthBrian

    OMG! Awesome! :O

  • http://ryuz4ki57inenglish.wordpress.com/ Thomas FROEHLICHER

    so no new Hatsune Miku game for Japan? I’m starting to worry here…

    • Budgiecat


    • Guest

      I’d say give it some time; Diva F 2nd only came out there a little over 3 months ago. ^^;

  • Quetzalcoatl9999

    Awesome, 3DS is best handheld ever, can’t wait for Monster Hunter 4,Final Fantasy explorers and Persona Q.

    • Budgiecat

      Why isn’t Vita the best handheld ever??

      • Quetzalcoatl9999

        Because according to Sony, Vita is an accessory for PS4 instead of a handheld console

        • Budgiecat

          what about PSP??

          • Quetzalcoatl9999

            DS sold better and had more amazing games.

            • Budgiecat

              what about Pocketstation???

      • Zackasaur

        It definitely would be if it had Kingdom Hearts.

        • Budgiecat

          When you think about it…..why isn’t the KH 1.5 & 2.5 HD Remixes also for Vita like FFX HD was?

  • An Tran

    Awesome, Sega’s slowly uncrappifying themselves in the west! Now they just need to bring over Phantasy Star Online 2 and Nova, bring over more Yakuza games, make a new Shenmue, and stop making Sonic games for at least 5 years after that Sonic Boom crap is released and they’ll finally be back on track as a good game company.

    • Alos88

      Sadly, I’d say them localizing the Miku games is more of an exception to the rule than a sign of better things to come.

      • An Tran

        That…that crushes me hopes there mate…

      • Elvick

        Sadly. After all the fanbase is passionate, but the games are also far easier to localize in terms of text. If they’ve got the licensing already worked out from Project Diva, there’s really nothing hard about it now.

        Par for the course. Full JRPGs are still doomed. As is Yakuza.

  • Akari Akaza

    My favorite celebrity in the universe is having a another album….woohoo….o(^-^)o

  • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

    That’s great… but I’m already super behind on buying 3DS games. A combination of:
    > I don’t play it that much anyway
    > Etrian Odyssey IV and Untold are plenty of game for me
    > THE GREAT GAMES HARDLY EVER GO DOWN IN PRICE. Frickin’ Fire Emblem is still $40 like it launched this week! (>o<)

    Still, I love Project Diva. I would totally love Project Mirai too. I'll try and get it Sega.

    But how 'bout localizing an RPG or two, huh? Or remembering to mention PSO2… ever?

    • Budgiecat

      Where’s your Shin Megami tensei IV, Project X Zone, Kid Icarus Uprising, Kingdom Hearts DDD and Fire Emblem Awakening?

      And where’s mah Yakuza 5, Ishin, Yakuza HD Collection, PSO2, PS Nova, VC3, Shining Resonance, Shenmue HD Collection, Shenmue III?

      • Learii

        I only want yakuza ishin and Shenmue 3 ofcourse PSO2 Nova be great

        • Budgiecat

          What about Yakuza 5 & Yakuza 6??

          • Learii

            I wan those too but I want Yakuza Ishin more

  • Nonscpo

    Glad its coming 2015, cause fall 2014 was already filling up :o

  • 罪罰

    I’ve always wanted to play this one! Yes!!! Yes!! Thanks SEGA!!

    • Budgiecat

      Why not just import and learn Japanesums?


      • Daverost

        Because Nintendo, in their infinite wisdom, region-locked the 3DS, and most people don’t want to shell out the cash for a second system.

        I would have imported it already, otherwise.

        • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

          Yeah. If this was like the DS and region-free, these would definitely be “must-imports”.

          I mean, you don’t even need to know Japanesums to play a rhythm game… that’s why I bought both Ouendan!! games on the DS (^▽^)

  • AlphaSixNine

    More Miku is always welcome :)

  • Kyuu Naruto

    I’m so happy. ;o; I’ll be sure to pre order!
