Hey everyone! Welcome back for another closer look at Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX for Nintendo 3DS. Since 2007, Hatsune Miku’s content creators have released hundreds of thousands of songs, videos, and artworks. With Project Mirai DX, you can join in the community by creating your own Dances and Tunes!
Start off by heading over to the Dance Studio, an easy-to-use custom dance creator where you can have the characters dance to any song in the game. Dances are created by slotting Dance Cards into open boxes along the film ribbon. You have a choice of Basic Dance Moves, Kool Moves to add a little flare, Cute Moves to melt your audience’s hearts, Active Moves to keep the energy up, P. Video Moves unique to their specific songs, and Finish Moves when you need to strike a pose at just the right time.
The Dance Studio features two Modes: Simple and Advanced. In Simple Mode, you can drop in your Dance Cards as you listen to the music using the +Control Pad and the A/B/X/Y buttons. So easy!
In Advanced Mode, you can make finer touches to your dances created in Simple Mode or start a new song from scratch. Navigate to any block in the song and set your desired Dance Card for that section. It takes a bit more work than Simple Mode but is well worth the extra time if you’re all about finesse and polish. Once you are done with your Dance, you can share it with others around you via StreetPass.
While at the Dance Studio, you can also view your own dances and dances received from others. Choose your stage and take a seat in the director’s chair as you choose the camera angles on the fly. You can even leave it up to the crew and kick back with an Auto feature.
Now that you have your Dance created, another cool function to try out is making your own Tune. You can freely play one of seven different instrument types, from vocals to 8-Bit.
You can also use Create Tune to compose and save up to four measures of music that you can share with others nearby via StreetPass. If you ever decide to redo your Tune, you can keep everyone updated with SpotPass. So convenient!
Speaking of StreetPass, you can share your world with others around you with by creating your own personalized Profile Card. Start off by selecting one of forty-five possible poses for your partner.
Once you have the right pose, it’s off to decide your Tagline and a freeform Personal Greeting. Taglines are comprised of both a front and back, allowing you to find the perfect combination to describe yourself. As you play through Project Mirai DX, trying on new costume modules and completing your Stamp Collection will unlock new taglines. Next, you can select a design and backdrop. Designs are generally based off of songs from the game though there are a few other themes as well!
Your backdrop is a holographic overlay that adds that last bit of pizazz to your Player Card. Also, if you tilt your Nintendo 3DS, it will cause the backdrop to give off a little shimmer. Just like the taglines, playing through more of Project Mirai DX will unlock more design and backdrop options.
Once you have completed your Profile Card, you can choose which stickers you would like to add. Each sticker will activate your ability to share your customized Dance, Tune and random comments from your videos, so feel free to share as much or as little of your world as you want! Within the setting menu, you can set whether you would like your Profile Card shared to others via StreetPass or not. You can also continue to share and receive Profile cards updates through SpotPass!
If you’re the type that digs mini-games, Sega puzzle classic Puyo Puyo returns in the super cute, Puyo Puyo 39! In this game, you can play either the CPU or a friend over local wireless play, all while jamming out to the Project Mirai DX soundtrack. Build up your skills enough and you could unlock something special in the game.
While in Hang Out mode, you can challenge your partner to a game of Mikuversi, a DELUXE version of the board game classic. Your partner will learn the game along with you, so stay on guard. The better you get, the better they get as well! Play enough matches and you might have quite the rival on your hands.
Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX comes out next week in the Americas and Europe!
