Sega has detailed the “1st Stage” of Hatsune Miku: VR Future Live, which is due out via the PlayStation Store for PlayStation VR on October 13 in Japan and October 14 in North America and Europe.
The base game is described as the “1st Stage,” with plans to release a “2nd Stage” and “3rd Stage,” as well.
Get the details below.
■ Hatsune Miku’s First Worldwide VR Concert
Hatsune Miku VR: Future Live is a PlayStation VR-exclusive title. Players will be able to enjoy the concert stage of electronic songstress Hatsune Miku within a virtual reality setting.
■ Player-Decided Setlist
The player can choose which music plays during the concert. Choose which song you want to hear from among two songs.
■ The Concert Begins
Hatsune Miku rises and the concert begins. You can use the d-pad to freely change your point-of-view (seat). You can even view Miku’s performance from angles you couldn’t experience at a real concert. There are a variety of perspectives, so be sure to try out all of the concert hall’s points.
■ A Concert Only Possible in VR
While feeling like you’re at a real concert, enjoy performance after performance possible precisely because of the virtual reality setting. Even from the venue’s rearmost seat, you can enjoy the concert through a giant hologram of Miku.
■ The Music is Also Real
The game supports 7.1 channel stereoscopic sound, so you can enjoy the reality of being at a concert venue. Not only will Miku be heard differently based on your seat, but on stage you’ll even be able to hear her singing voice.
■ Call and Response
Don’t just watch the concert! Liven up the concert together with the audience! Just like you’re at an actual concert, you’ll be able to wave your light stick to the rhythm and call out along to the music. You may even get a response from Miku, like a “Thank you!” to the audience. By livening up the venue and increasing its Voltage, Miku may even change outfits. There are a variety of other mechanisms, too.
■ Private Encore
Hatsune Miku VR: Future Live has three songs. However, if you liven up the concert, you may get a lovely reward in the form of a you-and-Miku-only private encore.
■ “2nd Stage” and “3rd Stage”
There are plans to release a “2nd Stage” and “3rd” Stage” (likely in the form of downloadable content). Please look forward to more details.
