The popular rhythm game Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix will be released on Nintendo Switch on May 15, 2020. SEGA confirmed the news alongside the release of a new gameplay trailer. While previous games in the series were playable on the Nintendo 3DS, this marks the first time a Hatsune Miku title will be released on the Switch.
The Western version of the game received a slightly different title than its Japanese counterpart with the addition of Mega Mix; while the original Japanese title is a pun based on the Japanese pronunciation of “39’s”, which sounds similar to “Miku’s” and “Mix.” The game was released in Japan on February 13, 2020.
Two versions of the game are available for purchase: a base game priced at $39.39 with a nod to Miku’s official number that features 100 songs, and a Mega Pack at $59.99 which in addition to the base game’s songs, also includes six DLC song packs with 36 additional songs. The six song packs will be also be available for individual purchase at $6.99 a pop or $29.99 for the bundle. Both versions of the game are digital-only eShop releases.
Players can sample the game today with a new free-demo, which includes the two songs Arifureta Sekai Seifuku and Romeo and Cinderella. As with the full-game, the demo is rhythm based and requires the use of Joy-Cons to get pace and match the song’s rhythm.
Pre-orders of either version of the game will include a 4-song theme song DLC pack that contains new versions of songs from previous Project DIVA titles. The songs are:
The secret garden by Kosaki Satoru
Look This Way, Baby by ryo
Sekiranun Graffiti by ryo
Yumeyume by DECO*27
