We don’t get enough rhythm games in the West. Rock Band and Rhythm Heaven Megamix aside, they tend to be relegated to Japan. Fortunately, Sega has been taking chances localizing the Hatsune Miku: Project Diva series, and it’s doing a little something extra to get PlayStation 4 and Vita owners interested in Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X . It’s released a demo for both the console and handheld on the PlayStation Store.
The Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X demo does a good job of showing what the game is like. As you go through songs, you’ll be able to complete requests to unlock modules and reach certain goals. A handful of Cloud and Event Requests are available, with the songs “Satisfaction,” “Raspberry Monster,” and “LOL – Lots of Laugh” available to play on multiple difficulty levels. The Cloud Requests take you through one song with one objective, while the Event Request has you put on your first concert with the three available songs, playing them one after the other. It took me about a half an hour to complete it.
Think of this as a means of checking to see if Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X is a game you’d enjoy. It’s a really intensive rhythm game with songs of varying difficulty levels. While all the tracks are in Japanese, they cover quite a few genres. Plus, this one has some interesting objectives to complete, with various outfits that actually have skills attached to allow for certain things to happen as you play. Keep it in mind, as its August 30 release date draws nearer.
