Release Confirmed for Japan. Is Europe “in flight” again?
When it comes to dancing Japanese characters in virtual reality (VR), Hatsune Miku usually sits on top of this pedestal. Hatsune Miku VR came out on Steam PC VR in 2018 for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, and then to the Oculus Store a couple of months ago. Now the game is becoming available for PlayStation VR players.
Support currently covers the PlayStation VR in Japan with a studio making the video game available for demonstration during this week’s magic Mirai 2019 event in Osaka (10th-11th), as part of the VR Game Experience Corner.
If you have not encountered Hatsune Miku VR, you should know that this is a rhythm game with many Japanese pop songs, with singing and dancing of the virtual singer Hatsune Miku on stage.
The PlayStation VR version is supposed to be the same as the PC version, with 19 songs and two difficulty modes to choose from. 7 dance scenes complement the songs plus the video game has an advanced music video mode, so you can watch any song from several angles with a choice of stages and outfits for Miku.
Some of these songs:

Sharing The World (by BIGHEAD, illustration apapico)
Senbonzakura (by 黒 う さ Ｐ)

/ Hatsune Miku VR should not be confused with Hatsune Miku: VR Future Live, a free game that has been available on PlayStation VR since 2016. Although she still has the same high-energy, ever-happy Hatsune Mika, the interactive element is very limited.
This time you act as a simple audience, watching how she sings and dances. You have a light stick that you can swing to the beat of the music.
When the release date for Hatsune Miku VR on the PlayStation VR is confirmed, VRcue will notify you.
