Hatsune Miku Project Diva X HD dated in Japan with first PS4 footage



The Japanese PS4 release of the next entry in the Project Diva series of Hatsune Miku rhythm games was announced by SEGA today. It will launch in Japan on August 25 as Hatsune Miku Project Diva X HD. The Vita version was released in Japan last month without the HD monicker. It was recently announced that both the PS4 and Vita versions of the game would be arriving to both North and South American territories in Fall 2016 without a specific release date. Sadly, there is still no word of a European release for our friends across the pond.

The other bit of interesting news is that aside from running in 1080p at 60 frames-per-second, Project Diva X HD will support PlayStation VR through “Live Edit Mode” concert viewing. It’s worth noting that SEGA had a VR Tech Demo on display at E3 2015 last year.

The 1080p/60f trailer, which can be viewed below, uses the “Cool Medley: Cyber Rock Jam” by Divela. The medley is comprised of five songs: “Unhappy Refrain” by Wowaka, “Mairisudame!” by Live P, “Tengaku” by Yuuya, “Palette” by Yuyo Yuppe, and “Kono Fuzaketa Subarashiki Sekai wa, Boku no Tame ni Aru” by n.k. The songs “Unhappy Refrain” and “Tengaku” were both previously featured in Hatsune Miku Project Diva F on PS3 and Vita and “Palette” was in Project Diva Extend on PSP.
