Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X HD will be made available on Playstation 4 in Japan on August 25th, while North America will receive Hatsune Miku Project DIVA X on both Playstation 4 and the Vita on August 30th. While the titles are slightly different, they refer to the same game.
SEGA of Japan’s Project DIVA YouTube channel uploaded an overview trailer for the game ahead of its release later this summer. 1080p and 60 fps! Live Quest mode! 30 songs! Many modules, including DLC modules themed after Persona 4: Dancing All Night and Racing Miku.
Check out the trailer below, featuring several different songs and assorted aspects of the game.
We’ve learned through fansite mikufan, reporting by way of hokanko-alt, that gaming hardware developer HORI, known for such things as their controllers and arcade sticks for fighting games, is developing a special arcade-inspired “Mini Controller” for Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X HD on the Playstation 4.
Check out a preview image for the controller above. It comes with all of the inputs associated with a traditional PS4 controller, but with enlarged face buttons and a directional pad alongside two control sticks to capture the feeling of playing the game in an arcade.
Ahead of the impending release of Project DIVA Future Tone in japan, SEGA have uploaded a 4-minute overview trailer for the game to the SEGA ft. Hatsune Miku YouTube account.
There’s nothing new here, but it’s a good overview of the features of the game. Simple Mode, output at 1080p and 60fps, many modules and songs between its two content packs: Future Sound and Colorful Tone. Many familiar songs are also previewed throughout the trailer.
Check it out below! Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone will release digitally to the Playstation 4 on June 23 in Japan (remember that there’s not much to play if you don’t buy the content packs first!) No word on localization at the moment.
A news post to the Sony of Japan website announces the production of a Playstation 4 hardware package – the Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA- Special Pack. It’s inspired by the soon-to-be-released titles Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X HD and Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone.
It’s being sold in two hard drive capacities (500 GB and 1 TB), with Jet Black being available in both sizes and Glacier White being an option for the 500 GB version. The general package is basically the same as what we’ve seen for other SEGA-related PS4 promotions, but the noticeable differences are the inclusion of two Project DIVA themes for the PS4 and three different bay cover.
There are three different bay covers – one that is Project DIVA X HD-themed, one that is Project DIVA Future Tone-themed, and one that is themed on the SEGA’s continued collaboration with Hatsune Miku (SEGA ft. Hatsune Miku). The Project DIVA X HD bay cover is Glacier White-colored, the Project DIVA Future Tone cover is Jet Black-colored, and the SEGA one is a bright Aqua Blue.
The newest issue of Weekly Famitsu has disclosed a June 23 release date for Hatsune MIku: Project DIVA Future Tone on Playstation 4 in Japan.
Future Tone is a unique product as far as Project DIVA releases go. There will be a “base application” of Future Tone called Prelude which is free to download on PSN. Once downloaded, users have the option of purchasing either the “Colorful Tone” or “Future Sound” DLC packs to be applied to the game, priced at individually ¥4,212 with tax included. Besides containing character modules (340 modules altogether!), each DLC pack offers a different assortment of songs: 100 songs from the Project Mirai and Project DIVA Arcade games in “Colorful Tone”, and 120 songs from the Project DIVA F games in “Future Sound.”
Preorders begin later this month, and those who preorder will be eligible for two PS4 background themes. The release for this game is being handled all digitally.
Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone is an updated version of the arcade title Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Arcade Future Tone. There is an older English website here for the Arcade game if you’d like to check it out…
There are no currently announced plans for release outside of Japan. Meanwhile, Project DIVA X will be releasing in the Americas during late August.

Sega took to the official Japanese Project DIVA blog to announce Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X HD, the Playstation 4 version of Project DIVA X for Japan. The game is due for release on August 25th. Notable details from the announcement include compatibility with Playstation VR for the purposes of the game’s Live Edit Mode, and the Snow Miku 2010~2015 Download Campaign which offers Snow Miku modules from 2010 to 2015 for free as downloadable content for a month after the game’s release, but will no longer be free after September 25th. The DLC will be available for both Vita (Project DIVA X) and PS4 (Project DIVA X HD.)
A new piece of artwork by KEI was also published to commemorate the announcement! It is used as our featured image for this article.
Project DIVA X for the Vita released a month ago in Japan. Project DIVA X is planned for release in North America for both Vita and PS4, but there’s no word on support for Europe at the moment. Hopefully that situation may change so as to better accommodate any European fans.
A new promotional trailer for Project DIVA X HD was uploaded to Sega’s YouTube channel for the Project DIVA series. It features the Cool Medley – Cyber Rock Jam. Check it out!
The annual Easter Sale on the EU PlayStation Store is underway, and as you may expect the list of discounts includes some SEGA and Atlus games. As usual, we compiled them in the list below, with prices both in Euro and British Pound added for your convenience. As you can see, it’s a good occasion to complete your collection of Project DIVA F, Yakuza or Persona 4 games! The Easter Sales run until April 6th, and Sony have announced that they will be adding more games to the list next week.
Happy Hatsune Miku Day! March 9th is recognized as “Miku Day” in Japan, since “mi” and “ku” can refer to “3” and “9.” Miku Day is not the same thing as Miku’s birthday in Japan (August 31) but is nevertheless a widely celebrated occasion.
While Miku Day has passed in Japan, many of us in other parts of the world have not had a chance to celebrate. Give thanks to Hatsune Miku today!
Famitsu released a video of Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X featuring a new addition to the series – Live Quest mode. My colleague Draikin has written articles on Live Quest mode previously, and now the video can act as a sort of visual synthesis for the detailed coverage he’s provided on this mode.
To summarize: there are five Areas in Live Quest mode, each of which are themed after the five Elements in Project DIVA X. The player is free to cycle between the five Areas at their leisure. Within each Area are Elemental-themed songs that must be cleared, and after clearing a song the player acquires Voltage that “restores” the Area of a particular Element. But any given Area cannot be fully restored without finally completing a Medley featuring songs of a particular Element.
Check out the video below! It lasts for a little more than five minutes and serves as a comprehensive overview of the Live Quest mode experience on the Playstation Vita. If you missed out on Rush Notes before, you can also see it in this video.
Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X is due for release in Japan on March 24. We still do not have any word on localization outside of Japan.
A special song was revealed in Famitsu this week for Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X, and it’s styled as a monumental challenge. Introducing the “Ultimate Medley ~Delusional Suite of Transcendental Finesse~”! If that mountain of syllables for the song title didn’t intimidate you, then perhaps the song list that comprises the medley might be more convincing:
- “The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku” by cosMo@BousouP
- “Two-Sided Lovers”by wowaka
- “Sadistic.Music∞Factory” by cosMo@BousouP
- “2D Dream Fever” by PolyphonicBranch
- “The Intense Voice of Hatsune Miku” by cosMo@BousouP
There will be “Ultimate” modules for each of the main six Vocaloids to accompany this song. Be sure to check out this Hachima Kikou post for song previews!
