Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X will launch for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Europe as a digital-only title on August 30, Sega of Europe announced.
In the Americas, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X is due out both physically and digitally on August 30.
A Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X demo will be available for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita via the PlayStation Store in both North America and Europe on August 9. It features three songs—“Satisfaction,” “LOL -lots of laugh-,” and “Raspberry & Monster”—on Easy or Normal difficulties. Players will be able to unlock a handful of costume modules for Hatsune Miku, and even create a custom Music Festival medley of their own design as an Event Request.
The core gameplay is of a similar play style to Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F, removing the double star notes and link stars introduced in Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd. The game also introduces “rush notes”, for which the player is to rapidly press the corresponding button in order to increase their score. A new “Live Quest” mode takes center focus over the traditional free play mode. The game now centers around the “home” menu, which is an adapted version of earlier titles “diva room”, where the player can interact with the Vocaloids. “Home” also replaces the traditional main menu.
Live Quest Mode involves the player completing quests by playing songs. In between missions, short interactions and visual novel style dialogues may play out between the player and Vocaloids. The mode consists of two main types of quests – Area Quests and Event Quests.Area quests simply require a song to be completed while gaining a certain score. Later quests throw in other challenges (such as the “cool” pop up randomly changing to “miss” and “sad”). Event quests have special requirements such as requiring the player to play a “special live” consisting of 3 songs in a row. The game also features new “medley” songs, which are fully playable compilations of popular returning and new tracks. The full versions of the songs comprising the medleys cannot be played in full
