It will be possible to dance with a digital singer this week.
The Japanese hit, a game with a virtual singer Hatsune Miku has already managed to see several variations in virtual reality (VR), the most recent of which is Hatsune Miku VR, released in 2018. The game was originally released on Steam for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Now developer Crypton Future Media and publisher Degica Games add the game to the Oculus store.
The rhythm action genre has always been popular among gamers and has found a natural home on VR headsets thanks to games like Beat Saber, Audica and Hatsune Miku VR. The latter is somewhat different from the other two and more akin to the Central Dance, with players dancing along with Hatsune, catching melody symbols when they fly out of the speakers at the back of the stage.
The Oculus Store version will contain the same content as on Steam, with 19 songs and two difficulty modes.
The list of songs includes:
- Ievan Polkka (by Otomania)
- Singularity (by keisei)
- Amagoi Miseinen (by Wada Takeaki ‘Kurage P’)
- Sharing The World (by BIGHEAD)
- Senbonzakura (by 黒 う さ Ｐ)
- SLoWMoTIoN (by PinocchioP)
The game will have a total of 7 dance stages, as well as an expanded music video mode, so you can take a look at any song from different sides with a choice of stages and outfits. The game has several languages, including English, Japanese and Chinese. The launch of Hatsune Miku VR in the Oculus Store will also add a new Snow Miku outfit, a glow stick and new backgrounds. The Steam version will also receive these additions in the update.
Hatsune Miku VR will arrive at Oculus on June 6, 2019.
