As is expected with any Hatsune Miku title, the latest game starring the Vocaloid icon is already stirring up some buzz among fans. Sega is feeding the fire with the first gameplay trailer, which debuts some cheery tapping gameplay for the track “Nekoko no Payapaya.”
While rhythm games have never been my thing, I’ve always found the 3DS to be a pretty receptive platform for the genre. Of course, button pressing works fine, but something about hearing yourself tap on the screen really helps with keeping the beat. Based on the trailer alone, it looks like that touch screen will be a very big part of Project Mirai 2.
It’s still pretty unlikely we’ll see this game make it out West, but with the Hatsune Miku Facebook campaign still garnering quite a few “Likes,” I’d say there’s more hope now than there ever was before.
