Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone Review
Even though Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA is far from the traditional rhythm game, it found success by combining her popular music with interesting music videos. As the series continues to grow, the latest entry, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone, hopes to offer a must have experience for fans. With a new direction, tons of content and plenty of things to do, is Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone a must for fans or is it an attempt at easy money?
Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone starts by moving in a different direction than previous entries in the series. So if you’re looking for a story or the ability to interact with the Vocaloids, you’re simply out of luck. This would be a sad choice if Future Tone didn’t make up for this with an overwhelming amount of content.
While previous entries in the series have had around 30 songs, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone offers over 200 total songs. Roughly half of them are part of the Colorful Tone DLC, with the other half being part of the Future Sound DLC. These DLC packs include songs from previous Project DIVA, Project Mirai and arcade games. This means well versed fans will know what to expect, where as newcomers will likely see a bunch of songs they’ve never heard before.
As for song diversity, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone offers all a fan could hope for. Not only are the most notable songs of games past included, all the costumes and accessories are also there too. Best of all, the RNG based unlock system has been replaced with a simple in-game shop. Based off your song performance you’ll receive credits, which can be used to purchase costumes, hair styles and accessories. So you can quickly unlock your favorite costumes, make your ideal character and then slowly purchase the rest or simply ignore the system.
