Japanese videogame Hatsune Miku VR has been available in various forms for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR over the last couple of years, with releases such as Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X HD and Hatsune Miku VR Future Live. Last month VRFocus reported on Degica Games and Crypton Future Media announcing Hatsune Miku VR for PC virtual reality (VR) users, today confirming a release date.
For those unaware of the Hatsune Miku videogame series, it’s a rhythm action title where you’ll dance and hit notes in the brightly coloured, neon lit world of titular character Hatsune Miku, a fictional Japanese pop star.
Using motion controllers players have to catch melody symbols that fly from the speakers at the back of the stage as Miku sings and dances away to some of her most iconic songs. Things start to get difficult when long riff symbols and other challenges are introduced, making it harder to hit those perfect high scores.
