初音ミク -Project DIVA- X (Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA- X) is the eighth and latest main installment in the Project DIVA series. The game is set for a Japanese release in March 2016 for the PS Vita along with Autumn 2016 for the PS4, a first for the series. The game’s theme song is composed by ryo.
A new “Live Quest” mode will be introduced in it, in which quests will be listed on the bulletin board in Diva Room. The quests may vary depending on the areas, which are five in total (Neutral, Cool, Cute, Beauty and Chaos). By “filling” up the power of song, the quest is progressed and eventually passed when a right amount of “Voltage” is met.
In Live Quest Mode, there are five types of areas that exist: “Neutral,” “Cute,” “Cool,” “Beauty,” and “Chaos.” The rhythm game’s songs are stationed throughout each area. Each module and accessory you equip has a set element. If you coordinate your module and accessories with the element of the rhythm game, the initial value of your Voltage Rate will increase and you can earn Voltage more efficiently.
In addition to obtaining modules by purchasing them with Live Points, a new module acquisition feature has been added. The “Module Drop” feature will be reward a random module by the completion of a quest, if the quest conditions and “Chance Time” are both cleared. In it, an event will trigger conversations among the characters in the quest.
The new “Rush Notes” feature sets up an alternative for players to gain higher scores. This can be done by pressing the corresponding buttons repeatedly when the word “RUSH” appears on the screen.
In accordance to theme of the game “Live & Produce”, you can now produce your own “live” and change the stage of the song, along with the modules and accessories, as seen in previous games. Consequently, -Project DIVA- X isn’t expected to have any “Story PVs”, and the new PVs are all supposed to be in a “live” style.
For each module there are set “skills” that influence the rhythm game. Example skills include “Recover,” which cover up mistakes you make during the rhythm game, “Rate Up,” which lets you earn more Voltage, skills that influence module drop rate, and more.
