I’m not going to lie, I am not and never have been good at Rhythm games. In real life I can play guitar, I have rhythm, but for some reason it does not translate to button presses on a controller. Maybe its because there is a certain soul, a certain feel to playing a real guitar or actually dancing. Saying that I have always found the Miku games fun. My ineptitude with the games had nothing to do with their quality, it was more my skill level,but I keot playing and getting better. I kept playing because I was having fun, even though I cause dpoor Miku grief far too often. So now we have a PS4 version coming out and I have mixed feelings. I know I will buy it, for my daughter of course. I also know it will suck hours of my life away as I try not to make miku too sad at my dancing skills. If you are a Miku fan, this game should be a no brainer, its also worth checking out if you enjoy rhythm games. The release date will be August 30th in North America. Here is a little more about the game from the European release announcement.
IRVINE, Calif. – July 22, 2016 – European fans of digital singer Hatsune Miku will get to take part in her return to the big stage, as Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X will launch on the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®Vita in Europe as a digital download title. For those new to Project DIVA, it is an addictive core rhythm game starring the digital singer, Hatsune Miku. Project DIVA X is driven forward through a narrative which centers on Miku and her friends undertaking various Requests as they explore the five Clouds that make up their world. For the Miku veterans, Project DIVA X has 30 songs and nearly 300 modules (costumes) that get dropped. Available exclusively on the PS4 and PS Vita, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X will release in both Europe and the Americas simultaneously this fall.
In Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X, the world is comprised of five unique Clouds, each with its own aura – Classic, Cool, Cute, Elegant, and Quirky. As Miku and her friends progress, the auras of the songs they perform and even the modules they choose will have a profound effect on fulfilling challenge conditions for players to test themselves with. There’s also the newly added Concert Editor, which lets players create their own mini-concerts from the songs, modules and accessories they collect. As players take on Requests and explore Clouds with Miku and her friends, they begin to forge relationships, and ultimately, will reveal the secret of the eponymous “X.”
