The Songs Of Hatsune Miku’s Music Game Rival

The Songs Of Hatsune Miku’s Music Game Rival

For years now, virtual idol Hatsune Miku’s greatest hits have been showcased in the Project Diva music game series. Now however, fellow Vocaloid and rival “IA” has her own game IA/VT -Colourful-. And its music is pretty good in its own right.

IA/VT -Colourful- has 60 songs right out of the box — with 5 additional tracks as free DLC and 13 more as paid DLC. In other words, it has a sizeable chunk of IA’s best songs. Here are my 10 personal favourites from among the 65 free songs.

Title: Inner Arts Composer: Jin

Title: TSUBASA New Days Composer: A-bee

Title: Shinigami no Guitar Composer: PTL0

Title: Over Drive Composer: TeddyLoid

Title: Party Party Composer: Komori Taminoru

Title: Cloud Rider Composer: Tanaka Hayato x Jane Su

Title: World Calling Composer: Jin

Title: A Realistic Logical Ideologist Composer: Goboumen

Title: Love of the Camellia Princess Composer: PolyphonicBranch

Title: God Only Knows Composer: Devilish-P

If you enjoyed listening to these songs, you can check out the rest of IA/VT -Colourful-‘s playlist over on YouTube.


  • So, Richard, at what point were you going to mention that IA/VT Colorful is only available in Japanese, will likely never get localised (according to the developers) and you’ll need a Japanese PSN account to download even the free DLC? Journalism much?

    • Wow man, why don’t you get off your high horse and broaden your mind a little bit? It may not have occurred to you that some people that live in Australia/New Zealand speak Japanese, ARE Japanese or simply like the music/vocals as is (like myself, indeed half the music I listen to isn’t in English). And if you think accessing the content is gonna be a problem, Richard gave us goddam youtube videos and a link to the playlist itself and I’m pretty sure there’s hundreds if not thousands of free youtube to mp3 converters out there to solve your little problem. Also, implying that this is rubbish journalism is just ridiculous, simply because he’s posting something for a different segment of the pop culture market than what you find yourself in doesn’t make this bad journalism, for instance I found this article nice and interesting as well as helpful and besides it’s not like this sort of topic is new to Kotaku anyway. So basically, stop being an asshole. *rant over

      • Wow man, I love JPOP just as much as you do. I was commenting on the lack of information in the article. Anyone can link a bunch of Youtube clips…

        • well forgive my massive rant then, in any case it’s still useful as it collates information (songs in this case) in one place, sure anyone can link youtube clips but no one else did. Anyway, sorry for snapping at you, you just came across as a bit of a dick

          • Yes, I was being snarky 😛

            I think I get frustrated, particularly with Kotaku, where ‘articles’ could have been more fleshed out instead of just vomited out to get clicks. I know these writers are capable of better things!
