Ah … how nostalgic … I recall my childhood memories when I was controlling the speedy blue hedgehog to run, roll, and jump around the stage to get the rings/emeralds and save those bunnies, chipmunks, and birds from the mad doctor. 😄

Yep, Nendoroid Sonic The Hedgehog was last seen at Miyazawa Event, and he got a preview photo session by Mikatan today.

As mentioned by Mikatan in her blog post, this Nendoroid is being made to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Sonic’s career in the gaming world. He will bring along a plenty of parts and accessories to re-create featured scenes from the game. Kindly visit Mikatan’s blog to view more pics. ^^

Anyway, this Nendoroid will be available for pre-order starting tomorrow. What do you think, Nendonesian? ^^

Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai Has Voice Selection Feature

Various costumes for Miku, Rin, Luka, and MEIKO

Various costumes for Miku, Rin, Luka, and MEIKO

The upcoming Vocaloid Nendoroid-themed game for 3DS, Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai, has been given an official title by SEGA: Hatsune Miku and Future Stars: Project Mirai. It is not a mere title change though, as SEGA also intends to differentiate between this game and the PSP-bound Hatsune Miku: Project Diva series.

Should you choose one or more Vocaloid for a song in Project Diva, he/she/they would only dance for the music, but the song remains to be sung by Hatsune Miku. In the case of Project Mirai, you may choose which Vocaloid to sing certain songs. Whoa … isn’t it nice to listen to Rin, Luka, and MEIKO’s voices there? 😄

Anyway, there are six songs that have been announced to appear in Project Mirai:

  • Tricolor Airline (Atsuzou-kun) – has voice selection feature
  • Daughter of Evil (Mothy)
  • LOL -Lots of Laugh- (Ken and Endcape)
  • Watashi no Jikan (Kuchibasi)
  • PIANO*GIRL (OSTER Project)
  • Sing and Smile (Re:nG)

Did you know that Project Mirai also have augmented reality (AR) features? Yes, you could take pictures of AR concerts being performed by Hatsune Miku on your desk. Awesome! 😄

Anyway, Hatsune Miku and Future Stars: Project Mirai is scheduled for release on March 8, 2012 in Japan – one day prior to Miku Day on March 9 (3/9). Don’t forget that the limited edition of this game will also include a Nendoroid Petit Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai version. ^^
