Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Mega Mix will mark the franchise's debut on the Nintendo Switch, and today Sega of America confirmed that the game will be released in the West in 2020.
Based on Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone, a port of an arcade title made for the PlayStation 4, Mega Mix will feature 101 songs and come with a wide variety of customization options for the game's vocaloid star, including customizable t-shirts. With Joy-Cons docked to the Switch, you'll be able to play songs in the rhythm game format Project Diva fans are used to. The new control mode exclusive to the Switch looks to be Mega Mix's largest addition to the Project Diva formula. In Mix Mode, you play with detached Joy-Cons and use motion controls to align left and right cursors with beats and sliding paths that cascade down the screen in time with the music.
At the Magical Mirai 2019 event in Tokyo where Sega announced Mega Mix, the company also pinned down its Japanese release date as February 13, 2020. (There, the game's subtitle is Project Diva Mega 39's.)
Mega Mix will be the second Hatsune Miku rhythm game title from Sega to make it on a Nintendo console in the west. Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX, part of a spin-off series featuring super chibi depictions of its vocaloid stars, came to the Nintendo 3DS in America and Europe in 2015. American players of Bandai Namco's Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum 'n' Fun got some songs featuring Hatsune Miku on the Switch late last year.
