In the earlier Japanese only versions, some of the songs utilized the official music video as the background animation. For Project Mirai DX, every song is now recreated in the Project Mirai style, all in gorgeous 3D featuring everyone’s cute Nendoroid look. New to the Miku rhythm game scene, GUMI also joins the cast as a guest star on a handful of tracks, such as Matroshyka by Hachi and Invisible by kemu.

Tap Mode involves tapping on-screen color panels in time with the on-screen prompts. Starting from Easy’s 1 color panel, increasing your difficulty will add additional color panels and ratchet up the note pattern complexity. In addition to matching the correct colors, swipe icons will appear requiring you to swipe in the direction indicated. Button mode involves pressing A/B/X/Y buttons and the +Control Pad in time with the on-screen prompts. Easy patterns utilize less buttons and show fewer prompts, whereas Hard uses all buttons, dual A/B/X/Y and +Control Pad usage, and increased complexity in button patterns and rhythms.
For both Tap and Button mode, you can also customize a wealth of different play options.
