It's only a matter of time before Hatsune Miku is in every ad, every television show, ever music video, and every video game released in the United States. You heard it here first, folks. That cyber-pop star that Japan created out of code and perversion is continuing to expand out beyond the borders of the island nation she was birthed from. Case in point, the announcement that Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI Remix is now being localized.
Yes, today Sega announced their plans to bring the 3DS rhythm game to the western world, both in North American and Europe. The title will be an updated version of the Japanese release, Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI 2, though since the original Project MIRAI was never released here I can understand their dislike of putting out something with the sequels name. It might confuse folk.
MIRAI Remix will feature two different game modes, one for button pressing and one for touch-screen controls. After that, each of the songs will feature three different difficulty levels. You know, like a rhythm game should. And of course, because it wouldn't be right without it, but there will be costumes to dress Hatsune Miku up in. Then you can streetpass and stuff I guess, too.
Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI Remix will be launching on 3DS in 2015. Ah, it seems we won't be privileged with Hatsune Miku for the holidays. I hope everyone will be able to contain their fan obsessions until then.
