The premier Vocaloid Hatsune Miku has a new gacha game in Hatsune Miku Colorful stage.
An English version of the Rhythm game has now been released in specific regions, as the game has unfortunately been delayed in Southeast Asia. Thankfully, we were still able to play it and we found it to be a fun little rhythm game with a high quality of polish for a mobile game and an interesting idea for a Hatsune Miku story.
The gameplay of Hatsune Miku: Colorful Stage! doesn’t take long to learn. The notes ride on a track that comes from the screen’s center much like Guitar Hero. There are three different actions players perform with the notes: tap, hold and flick. The held notes have a colored path between each end while the flick ones have a red arrow. Of course, the game offers first-time players a tutorial which is thankfully optional. Just remember to select the “Show” option for the actual gameplay, as “Story” is nothing but cutscenes. In addition, playing songs costs stamina.
Getting your team to high levels at a relatively quick rate is no easy feat either. The materials required to level up units come at a snail’s pace after each completed song, depending on your grade. To begin with, many units aren’t too strong, so expect a lot of C ratings with minimal growth.
So far, the gacha for the game has been fairly generous thanks to all the launch presents. The game does give you the option to pay for batteries which net you more exp during a show. This, in turn, helps speed up the leveling of your characters and rank, which in turn lets you play story chapters faster. It’s not necessary to progress but it can prey on more impatient gamers so I’d suggest trying to take your time with the game.
Hatusne Miku: Colorful Stage! is upfront with its microtransactions. The game welcomes first-time players with age verification and legal agreements to read and sign. It even greets players with a disclaimer reminding people to monitor minor players to prevent overspending. Of course, it feels more like Sega trying to legally protect themselves, given the addictive nature of gacha mechanics. The obligatory gacha may only be for costumes and character variants, but it still affects the brain like gambling does. Moreover, the character variants have different skills that affect one’s performance and thus the completion rewards too.
Hatsune Miku: Colorful Stage! exceeds in storytelling and presentation, and gets some points considering I can attend a virtual Vocaloid concert. However, the grind it takes to acquire items and higher scores might be more than some are willing to invest. Still, the music is what we’re here for, and this game definitely brings the best beats to the party.
