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.

Hey everyone! We’re super excited to bring you all some information about Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX for the Nintendo 3DS. More than simply a Miku-based rhythm game, Project Mirai DX blends traditional rhythm game elements with companion-based events, simple creativity tools, and sharable customization, making it the ultimate Hatsune Miku experience!
Covering a wide spectrum of music genres, like pop rock song Terekakushi Shishunki by Honeyworks, chiptune *Hello, Planet by sasakure.UK, lounge duet on the rocks by OSTER project and dance anthem AgeAge Again by Mitchie M, Project Mirai DX has tunes anyone can get down with.
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.
She will occasionally drop by the lobby with a gift or a little gossip, so please make her feel welcome.
With Project Mirai DX, there are more ways to play! Each song has two play modes, Tap and Button, each with 3 modes of difficulty.
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.
Spend your Play Coins to use various helper items that can make your game easier or harder. Change up the look and feel by adjusting timing indicators, icons sizes, rhythm sounds, or even HUD clutter. You can even swap the order of your panels in Tap mode, or change your prompt icons image and color for Button Mode. Whether you’re a button tapping novice or rhythm game veteran, Project Mirai DX has you covered.
Do you prefer halyosy’s Snowman as sung by KAITO or Kagamine Len?
Which leading lady would you like to hear sing Tricolore Airline by atsuzoukun? When adding up all the different vocal versions, Project Mirai DX features a staggering 79 songs!
You can skip forward and back to your favorite parts, make playlists, add your own scrolling comments on the screen that can be exchanged via StreetPass/SpotPass and manage your comments received by other players.
Also, in Jam Along Mode, simply interact with any of the buttons or screens that are highlighted yellow to activate various sound banks. It’s that easy to add your own musical flair to your favorite song in real time!
