The main feature of “Hatsune Miku Project DIVA Future Tone DX” is the “Rhythm Game” mode, which features all of the biggest hits from VOCALOID that have been released since the Hatsune Miku software was released back in 2007. It is the ultimate Project DIVA experience.

 

The game also boasts a huge wardrobe of 396 modules, consisting of outfits original to certain songs, outfits that were designed in collaboration with “piapro”, and more. This enables you to customise your character to your liking: choose whatever module and hairstyle you like and play your favourite songs.

 

You can also enter a mode so you can enjoy the music video without playing, and even take a screenshot with the click of a button. The photos you take can be set to display on the loading screen. Plus, if you just want to play your favourite songs, you can make your own personal playlist. “Future Tone DX” is also set to feature an even more fun way to use the music video photo function. More details will be announced soon.

Eevee will also show different expressions and behaviours depending on how you treat it. Look after it lots and it will be happy, but ignore it and it will grow timid.

In the rebellious age they will take on other physical elements of their parents including their heads, tails, wings and so on. When they reach the friend stage their face and bodies will grow to look exactly like their parents.

    The Tamagotchi may inherit lots of traits from their fathers from infancy to puberty, but when they reach adulthood they may look like their mothers. Characteristics will also be passed down the family line and the Tamagotchi children may take on elements of their ancestors or look like their grandparents. Also, even though they may be born from their parents, some Tamagotchi’s appearances will differ depending on how you raise them. There are many combinations and influences that will affect what kind of Tamagotchi you will get, so you can look forward to raising and communicating with all different kinds.

    Tamagotchi Meets also introduces Bluetooth® to the series for the very first time so you link it with the Tamagotchi communication app releasing in November.
