The Newest Hatsune Miku Game Is An Idol Simulator

Announced on August 31st to celebrate the 8th birthday of Japan’s iconic virtual idol, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X is the latest addition to the Project Diva series. This time, it’s not about high scores, it’s about audience response.

In addition to new songs and costumes — called “modules” in the game — Project Diva X features a new “Live Quest” mode where, as the player, you get to produce Miku and co’s performances for a virtual audience a la The iDOLM@STER. In short, you’re no longer just playing a rhythm game to please yourself, you’re doing it to please an imaginary crowd.

Using the various and accessories along with your rhythm sense, you complete quests to progress the game. Also, by utilising the DIVA Room, you can communicate with the game’s vocaloids through conversation events, the outcome which can affect the rhythm game part of the game.

The game will include 30 songs for the virtual idols to perform and will have a free-play mode with gameplay similar to previous Project Diva games.

  • As long as they still have the traditional mode as well as the new Live Quest mode I’ll be happy.

    • Yeah, doesn’t sound like something I’d be interested in. If I wanted to play the Idolmaster, I’d play that. I liked that the PVs in the background for the Project Diva games were really well-made and I don’t have any interest in fiddling with that stuff.
