Any Hatsune Miku fans out there? How about those who like VR? Well, both worlds will collide on October 13th. Sam Mullen, North American producer at SEGA announced a new addition to the popular game. Here are five things to know about it.
1. YOU CAN BECOME HATSUNE MIKU WITH VR
Like with any virtual reality experience, it’s hard to put this one into words. While there is a video, it doesn’t really do the experience justice. To see what it’s like to live in Miku’s world, put on the PS headset and get sucked in. Suddenly, you’re in front of thousands of ravenous fans that move in time with the music. As you continue to perform, the crowd gets into it even more until you forget the fact that you’re not actually a pop star.
2. SEVEN SONGS TO CHOOSE FROM HATSUNE MIKU VR
For those wondering what songs you’ll be able to choose from, there are in fact seven. At least so far. The tracks found in the first stage are “Love Train” by 40mP, “1/6” by noa, “Satisfaction” by kHz, Weekender Girl by kz and Hachioji P, “39” by DECO*27 and sasakure.UK, “Cute Medley” by Idol Sounds and finally, “Love Song” by Lamaze-P.
3. HIDDEN GEMS FOUND IN HATSUNE MIKU VR
Furthermore, gamers can find hidden features in the concerts. For example, there are places where you can call out and have a special effect appear. That’s far from everything though and you won’t find them all until you try.
4. HATSUNE MIKU VR EDITOR
If you have Project Diva X, make sure to check out the virtual reality enabling patch. This will be released alongside PS virtual reality and will allow you to see concerts that you created using the Concert Editor feature. While it’s not the full virtual reality future live experience, it will give users just a small take of virtual Miku.
5. YOU CAN TEST OUT THE HATSUNE MIKU VR TRIAL VERSION
Still not convinced? Check out the trial version of Miku Future Live. It’s released at the same time and features a single song for you to try. Mark your calendars for October 13th.
