Special delay!

Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX was supposed to be launching in the US and Europe this month, but Sega has just confirmed today that the title has been pushed back to September.

To help alleviate some of the disappointment, the publisher has confirmed that a special edition version of the game will be making its way to retail. This edition will include 19 double-sided augmented reality (AR) cards that show off additional dance moves and costumes, as well as a wallet chain.

The title will also be hitting the 3DS eShop - minus the goodies - at the same time. The new release dates are September 8th in North America and September 11th in Europe.

Here's some additional info from Sega:

The game features 48 full-length versions of fan-favorite songs players can challenge themselves with by trying to match the rhythm in "Tap Mode" and "Button Mode," each with multiple difficulty levels, which can be further augmented with challenge and support items.

But the rhythm game is just one facet of Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX – players can also customize a virtual apartment for their favorite Miku character with decorations, seasonal items, and more. The Mirai Theater has replay functions so players can watch their favorite videos and add scrolling commentary. Choreograph entirely new routines by making new moves in the Dance Studio, and compose brand new song phrases in My Tune. This info can all be shared on customizable Profile Cards, which can be shared via StreetPass™ and kept current via SpotPass™.
