‘Hatsune Miku VR’ Rhythm Game for Rift & Vive to Launch March 9th, Teaser Trailer Here

News Bits


Hatsune Miku, the impossibly saccharine anime pop vocaloid, is coming to SteamVR headsets in a new rhythm game from creators Degica Games and Crypton Future Media.

Update (02/27/18): The Steam link is live, and launch date is confirmed for March 9th, 2018. Check out Hatsune Miku VR here on Steam.

Original article (01/19/18): First reported by Gematsu, Hatsune Miku VR will be landing on SteamVR headsets in spring 2018. Developers Degica Games say in the promo announcing the game that it will feature songs by “various famous Hatsune Miku artists.”

Degica spells out the list of upcoming features:

  • Rhythm action game using VR controllers
  • Enjoy Miku’s original dance while playing the game
  • Eight songs with two difficulties for intense dance action (more songs to be added later)
  • Support for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift
  • Game available in English, Japanese, and Chinese

This isn’t the Japanese CG starlet’s first foray into VR. Crypton Future Media, the inventors/rights holders, have licensed Hatsune Miku’s likeness to a number of VR ‘concerts’ across including PSVR (Hatsune Miku: VR Future Live), and both Gear VR and Daydream via the VR Cruise app (Gear VR version, Daydream version).

Since there’s only eight songs to choose from, we don’t expect this to be high on the list of ‘must plays’, but if you’re a Hatsune Miku superfan, you might want to keep this link handy to check for when the game finally arrives on Steam. You can also sign up for future updates through Degica’s website.

    There are already dancing games available on Steam like Personal Disco VR and Dance Studio VR but I guess that manga, and especially Hatsune, is much more popular in Japan. I think VR is a good medium for dancing applications and I really like that the area is explored further. It’s a nice contrast in the gaming industry that VR can produce more non-violent material than what is available in traditional gaming.

    I don’t see myself getting this as I’m not an anime fan and am drawn more to straight-forward rhythm games like BoxVR, but hopefully this will draw more people to buy a headset.

    I am definitely sad on 8 songs, I hope it is no more than 20 bucks as more may be hard to swallow. Will see with what they add modes and future content. But I love rhythm games so I will probably buy this regardless. The PS4 game I think launched at $40 with 30 songs or so.
