Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix
Top Critic Average
In the end, Mega 39 does one, very special thing: it takes the incredible Hatsune Miku Project Diva Future Tone, and makes it portable.
I’m still not sure that you can ever really call a rhythm game “perfect,” but Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix is as closest to perfection as I’ve ever seen a rhythm game get. As much as I’m aware that Vocaloid music isn’t for everyone, I honestly can’t help but recommend that anyone into rhythm games do themselves a favor and at least give this game a chance. You’ll only be hurting yourself in the long run if you don’t!
It's hard to go wrong with Hatsune Miku and all the other Vocaloids in one of the most enjoyable rhythm titles on Switch. Although everything about how to play is simple at face value, it gets more challenging the higher the difficulty goes and constantly challenges one's rhythm and ability to be alert without getting distracted.
For the series debut on the Nintendo Switch, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix does a fantastic job at offering an enjoyable experience for players new and old.
All in all, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix is an addictive musical experience for old and new fans alike. With catchy music and engaging techno-pop visuals, as well as an elaborate customization menu, there is something here for everyone. Whether you’re playing at home or on a regular commute, Mega Mix leaves you wanting more.
Overall I really loved my time playing Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix. The music videos put a smile on my face and some of the songs I really loved and have stuck in my head hours after playing. With its huge list of songs and additional DLC you can add even more to the experience and there was already a lot to love about this game. The only thing some fans may not like is there is no The DIVA room mode like in the PS3/Vita game Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd. Other than that I really love this game!
Whether or not you play Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix on a Nintendo Switch or a Switch Lite, there’s a lot to offer in such a small package regardless if you buy the DLC bundle or not. There’s a little bit of everything for everyone from pop to rock and even electronic music, each song varies in challenge and it’s just the perfect balance to say that this package is the best offering of Hatsune Miku and is an absolute must-own for Nintendo Switch fans.
Like its predecessor, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix is astounding.
Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix is crammed with unlimited fun and awesome music, optimised for both playing at home and on the go. Despite the fewer number of songs in comparison to the PS4 counterpart, the Switch edition boasts unique features, modes and content, although there is a lot of day-one DLC which I feel should have been included. If you like Hatsune Miku, you’ll love this edition – it’s more of the same but playable on the go and at home – you can even opt to have PS button prompts so you can imagine you’re playing the Vita 2.0. Rhythm game fans and those looking for a private social-distancing concert in their own home should certainly check this out.
Personally, I think rhythm games are best suited to portable systems, with their pick-up-and-play nature going hand in hand with bite-sized gameplay. Mega Mix is a game I can see myself coming back to time and time again, and it’s bursting with enough content that I’m sure to have some fun with Miku for years to come.
