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™.

It doesn't seem that the Special Edition is coming out in Europe, according to SEGA's blog.
Bit late the article, XD
And yes,,I was waiting for this game this month, the next week and now announced delay of four months more, oh well, Only have to wait longer...
an image of how I feel right now: http://i62.tinypic.com/72xc46.jpg
I'm fine with this since I only have enough money for Splatoon. Plus, I still gotta play the Project Diva games.
I'm okay with the delay.
There is still older games I want.
Eh, I'm not a fan of chibi-Miku. The Project DIVA games on PSP featured her original design, which I prefer a lot.
Love the extra stuff and all but man...I was so hyped and hoping it wouldn't get delayed...I guess i'll give Splatoon a go when its released. (Thought i'd be busy with DX so I never cared that much)
I am interested so I will wait for it. Wonder how much the Special Edition will cost.
this works better for me. I still have to get a new Nintendo 3DS XL first. Then there's XC3D, Codename STEAM, Story of Seasons, Fossil Fighters Frontier, Lego Jurassic Park and Puzzle & Dragons Combo Pack to buy before I get this game. Plus I also have to get my gamepad fixed too. Also some Amiibos that I preordered ( Charizard & Wario).
Oh boy. The AM at my gamestop is going to cut herself over this. This game is ALL she has talked about for the past few months.
I didn't know those other features would be in the game...I might have to get this game now, and looks like I'll be going physical, as well, for those AR Cards. ^^
I was really happy when I thought it was still coming on the 26th.
@MyLegGuy i don't think your avatar approves, but the pack man amiibo probably does because now you have teh funds for it!
Seems like Rhythm Thief all over again. I guess when it comes to rhythm games... they have no sense of timing (puts on sunglasses)
Seems like I have enough time and money for Swords and Solders II after all. One door close, another opens.
But seriously, I was looking forward to this game. I guess I'm sorta happy it got delayed since I'm broke right now, and will most likely have more money when it comes out later this year.
Not a big deal and now I get some AR cards and a cool wallet chain! Now I hope her latest arcade game comes to Steam as well. Sega hinted at that!
Q: Were you looking forward to playing the game this month?
A: I was looking forward to purchasing Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX this month, but I was not looking forward to playing it. It was going to be coming out the same day as Splatoon, and Splatoon would inevitably take priority, so as much as I enjoy the Hatsune Miku games, it would have ended up in my backlog until I've had my fill of Splatoon.
Q: Will the additional wait cause you any upset?
A: Oh no, not at all. Well... a little, it would have been nice to get most of the games I've been wanting this year all at once, save me any worries about my bank account later down the line.
On the whole though, I'm okay with this. I'd have been playing Splatoon first anyway, and now I can opt to play Fossil Fighters Frontier on my 3DS while I wait for Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX to release and to take over my 3DS cartridge slot.
so they delay a game and then try to distract people with an ugly wallet chain? not cool man.
The game is originally described as the western version Project Mirai 2. Later, Sega decided to also release the Japanese version at the same time. Now, Japanese version already got the demo and will get released next week but the western version is pushed back to September. Well, I think I can save my money and wait until the Japanese version be on sale.
Btw, the AR cards are in all Japanese physical versions but is considered as some bonus for the special version in US? And you players feels good to wait for extra months and pay more money just for some cards that should be included free in all versions?
