I'm not sure if I should buy this or the PS3 game,
or neither
.

I'm more of an Idol Master fan.

Namco please.
The song lists are quite different so you can get both without regretting it. Mirai is the easier game but some of the mechanics are cool.

Where's the pre-order button? I need to secure my copy now with expedited shipping!
I see there might be some pre-order bonuses also, yes yes yes.
I personally will be buying digital and physical for this game. It's so nice to see a release date, Miku is really coming to the west for my 3DS :)

I must be a super scrub because I got destroyed when I attempted this song.

I guess my fingers don't fit a normal 3DS.
Well, yeah, that is one of the toughest songs in the game, but there aren't many songs that reach the Extreme difficulty levels of Diva F games. There are only three difficulty tiers for songs, and if there was a fourth, people would probably wreck their systems. :p

Sad that this is the first non-Sonic Sega game on 3DS retail game to come to NA in years hasn't it?

Not that they put out much anyway on 3DS retail, only other retail games they've made were the Hero Bank series. I want a proper JRPG Sega like Phantasy Star or Shining Force. Something like that. :(

It looks too easy. Project Diva Extreme has spoiled me. :(
While Project Mirai is easier than Project Diva, I still prefer Mirai. Button and touch modes are really fun. Song charts I feel are more overall accurate than Diva, which I while find Extreme difficult, not really that much fun. Double taps don't feel needed and are only there to increase difficulty. Star notes also suck.

Why is Hatsune Miku popular? I haven't looked at the software.
It's hard to explain.
The phenomenon basically happened overnight.

I mean sure it's taken a bit longer for Miku to get popular in the West.
But in Japan? She's been huge since day 1 it seems like.

I'd say this is mostly attributed to the fact that she's a creation of the community. Originally one person drew her, but hundreds of thousands of people have created content with her.

I remember reading something like "Hatsune Miku is not an artist. But she is the face of thousands of artists." Basically sums up why people love her. <3

The PVs seen to have been replaced with the dancing 3D models.
For example, it was once it was like this:

but now you get something like this:

So you can buy new outfits and stuff too.
That doesn't seem enticing at all. Wish there was more exact info out there. Want to know if I should get 2 now while I'm in Japan or wait to import Deluxe(which would definitely be more expensive).

Honestly, I think Mirai 2 is fine. The new changes for DX are nice, but I don't think they're that big of a deal. Like original animation instead of PVs (they look great in 3D already in Mirai 2), item mechanic from Diva F to make the gameplay easier or more challenging, gameplay visual customizations, PV playlist, and some messing around in PV mode.

So...pretty much nobody knows what they include from Mirai 1&2 right ?

I hope they don't overdo it with the DLC, I don't want another games worth of DLC like in Diva f 2 ..

Is this game only going to have 3d PV's or will it have the 2d video versions as well?

Do you have a Japanese New 3DS? You can get Project Mirai 2 off the eShop for 3,450&#20870; right now. I'm going to buy it digitally and then if DX seems worth it, will pick up the U.S. version later on.

Is this a compilation of the content from Mirai 1 and 2, or a new game entirely (essentially Mirai 3)?

I own the two games already and don't really want to "re-buy" them.
I thought it was Mirai 2 with some extra features and all songs with 3D models.

Well, yeah I guess, since all of Mirai 1 is in Mirai 2; there's a new song here too, item usage and more customizing features for gameplay such as note size and stuff.
