Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix dated for 2020 Switch release

The Switch game comes with two ways to play, with Joy-Con controllers attached or unattached.


Hatsune Miku is back, and she's bringing a brand new game to the Nintendo Switch with her next year.

Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix is headed to the Switch in 2020, just announced during the Magical Mirai 2019 event in Tokyo. Based on the rhythm game series Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone, this music game will off newcomers and veterans alike plenty of ways to enjoy the music at home or while traveling. Hatsune Miku fans, this is the time to get excited. 

It will feature two different rhythm game modes that rely on either the Switch's traditional controls or a new exclusive game mode that lets players use the Joy-Con controllers to detach them and use them as part of a new motion-controlled rhythm game option. 

This entry in the long-running Project DIVA series has a redesigned art style, over 100 "reinvigorated" songs including the fan-favorite "Senbonzakura" (I'm hoping for "Clover Club," personally) and a selection of songs that have never been seen in the series will be added as well. It's going to be a nice, meaty collection of new and old for Miku fans, and you can see a sneak peek in the first trailer below. 

There's no specific release date for when you can groove with Mike on Switch yet, but it's targeting a 2020 release. That means you've got time to practice your rhythm game prowess a bit until then. The Project DIVA games can be challenging, even for veterans.
