The official blog of Hastune Miku has announced a new collaborative project between game developer Sega and Crypton Future Media’s Piapro community content creation initiative. Details of the project, including what the project will be, have yet to be revealed but it’s not hard to speculate. Sega has collaborated with Crypton Future Media a number of Hatsune Miku games in the past, such as the Project DIVA series, so seeing another rhythm game based on the popular Vocaloid wouldn’t be too surprising.
Additionally, the new project has been paired with a illustration contest. The project will be accepting submissions from fans, 200 of which will be displayed in the ending credits of the project. Sega has stated that there will be other prizes as well but has not revealed yet what they will be.
Those looking to enter the illustration contest will need to submit two images to participate. One illustration will need to portray a theme of a “Thank You” from Hatsune Miku or a “Thank You” to Hatsune Miku. The second illustration needs to capture the theme of “Your Ideal Concert” with Hatsune Miku. The contest will be taking submissions until September 11th, while the winners of the contest will be announced on October 12th.Tweet
