This week's issue of Enterbrain's Famitsu magazine is revealing the final title and augmented reality (AR) feature of Sega's upcoming Hatsune Miku musical rhythm game for the PlayStation Vita system. Hatsune Miku Project Diva F is the finalized name for what Sega has codenamed as "Next Hatsune Miku Project Diva" until now.
The game has an AR mode that uses the PS Vita's camera to superimpose Hatsune Miku in the real world — half-sitting on a bed, standing in the kitchen, or sharing an umbrella with someone. Famitsu indicates that Miku's expression and pose can change, and adds there may be other ways that gamers can play with the AR mode.
Famitsu is also unveiling a new key visual of Hatsune Miku, as drawn by her original illustrator KEI. The magazine previews the game's use of Buriru's "Himitsu Keisatsu" song with the "Dark Angel" character model module, and Junky's "Melancholic" with the module of the same name.
Sony will release a PlayStation Vita Hatsune Miku Limited Edition in Crystal White as a bundle with the game on August 30. On March 8, Sega released the Hatsune Miku and Future Stars Project Mirai 3D rhythm action game with an AR feature for super-deformed idols dancing on your desktop.
