Hatsune Miku Project DIVA MEGA 39’s
Right as the clock struck 12:00 on July 2 in Japan, SEGA has uploaded this very special anniversary announcement video:
That’a right, they have announced the first ever Nintendo Switch installment of the series called Hatsune Miku Project DIVA MEGA 39’s (read as “MEGA MIX”)!
Hatsune Miku Project DIVA MEGA 39’s will feature a total of 101 different songs, one of which will be an original one that serves as the theme song for this game.
In all, this installment will have 10 brand new songs making their debut to the series, two of which have been revealed below:
The game will also bring back a lot of the modules and costumes from series past, featuring 300 in total. In fact, the modules were given a touch-up for this game to appear more anime-like in their PVs, giving this installment its own graphics style that hasn’t been seen in the series up to now!
Finally, being a Switch title, the game can be played either with buttons presses, or with screen taps like Project Mirai Deluxe had.
As for why it’s called MEGA 39’s, the July 4 issue of the Weekly Famitsu magazine will reportedly contain the reason.

The winner of the contest will see their T-shirt design featured in the MEGA 39’s game, see their appear in the game’s credits roll, and even get a copy of the game for free!
