Project Diva Mega39s Coming to the West as Hatsune Miku Project Diva MegaMix

Friday, August 30th, 2019

A Western release of Hatsune Miku Project Diva: Mega39s has been confirmed. The game will release in the West at some point in 2020 as Hatsune Miku Project Diva MegaMix.

MegaMix is the first Project Diva title to be released for the Nintendo Switch and features a new “anime” art style and an additional motion-controlled mode called Mix Mode that requires you to move the joy cons over 2 left and right panels at the bottom of the screen. Check out the Western announcement trailer to see that in action:

Project Diva MegaMix also boasts over 100 songs and 300 outfits for the Vocaloids, with mix-and-match options for outfits and hairstyles. You can also design your own t-shirts in this game. It would also appear that the game is getting a digital-only release via the Nintendo eShop.

Hatsune Miku Project DIVA: MEGA39s Announced for Nintendo Switch, Releasing 2020 in Japan

Monday, July 1st, 2019

In news that’s come almost completely out of nowhere, SEGA has announced a new game in its long-running Project DIVA rhythm game series, Project DIVA: Mega39s.

Intended to be a celebration of the series’ 10th Anniversary, it seems the game will be a scaled-down take on the PS4’s excellent Project DIVA: Future Tone, with similar graphics and 91 tracks from the series’ past. In addition, there’ll be 10 new songs, such as NayutalieN’s “Alien Alien”. The game also marks a first for the series – as it’ll be the first entry to not appear on a Playstation platform. Instead, the Nintendo Switch will play host to this entry.

Other confirmed features are over 300 costumes (modules), and the return of “Touch Mode” from Project Mirai DX for the 3DS, which allowed you to play the game with the touch screen. Additionally, Playstation fans aren’t entirely being left out – as all 10 new songs for this game will be coming to Future Tone as paid DLC.

Given how close it is to Future Tone, it’s probably not too surprising to learn that this title is being developed by SEGA’s beloved AM2 branch. Along with Future Tone, AM2 were also responsible for the Mirai series, so it’s exciting to see them working with Miku again given how good those games were.

The game is currently planned for a 2020 release in Japan. Whilst there’s no information on a Western release, it’s a fairly safe bet given even Future Tone, which was likely a licensing nightmare, managed to come over fairly soon after its Japanese release.
