posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The software company Asgard's ParaPhray development division began streaming three promotional videos on Friday for Megpoid the Music #, the PSP rhythm game based on the music of the Megpoid Vocaloid voice synthesis software.
The first video lists the artists whose songs will be featured in the game, including Hachioji-P, samfree, Deco*27, Nou, and others. The second video features an image of the Lawson uniform costume bonus extra that fans can get for pre-ordering the game from Lawson convenience stores. The third video reveals that Joysound karaoke establishments will feature the game compilation versions of eight of the game's songs such as "Maybe Maybe," "Jū Mensō," and "Zutto Kono Mama" during the month of March.
The Megpoid software sampled voice actress Megumi Nakajima for its library. Megpoid the music# will feature a "Gumi Room" mode that will allow players to redecorate Gumi's room and dress her up in different outfits acquired throughout the game. Vocaloid illustrators Nou and Tsukasa Ryūgū (Manbou no Ane) are in charge of Gumi's design for the game.
ParaPhray slated the game for release in Japan on March 28. The limited edition will include two Petanko Mini! and Puchikko Mini! figures from Penguin Parade and will retail for 9,429 yen (about US$120). The standard edition will retail for 6,090 yen (US$78) without the figures.
Yamaha and Internet Co., Ltd released the Megpoid software in English on February 28.
