While this collaboration took place on the Japanese server last month, global fans finally have a chance to join in as well! This collab started on July 5th and will continue until the 25th. So if you’re a Crypton VOCALOID fan and want to join an MMORPG, here’s your chance! The Valkyrie Connect x Hatsune Miku collaboration is the perfect place to start.
About Valkyrie Connect
“‘Valkyrie Connect’ is a high fantasy RPG that combines Norse mythology with a unique Japanese anime flavor. Created by the all-star team that made Ateam’s hit “Unison League”, “Valkyrie Connect” rocketed up the Japanese sales charts shortly after release and was chosen as one of Google Play’s top games of 2016 in Japan.
Players assemble a collection of heroes, villains, gods and more to fight in full 3D real-time battles. The co-op Connect Battles are the game’s signature feature, and require players to fight alongside one another in real time to take down massive bosses. With a simple battle system perfect for mobile devices, complex party composition, and excellently written characters, “Valkyrie Connect” has earned its place at the top. Additional updates and coming content will continue to cement it as the premier RPG for mobile devices!” — Official Press Release

Of course, no game collaboration is complete without events! This collaboration is no different and offers two exciting events for fans to enjoy during the whole collaboration.
In addition, participating in these collaboration events will net players “Diva Pts.” These will factor into their ranking against all other players in the game! Players will be rewarded with a number of “Diva Brooch” items based on their ranking at the end of three ranking terms. These “Diva Brooch” items can be exchanged for collaboration heroes and gear that can otherwise only be obtained in the limited-time summon, making this a great opportunity for players to get the heroes and gear they want the most!
“Hachune Miku Strikes!”
“The cute Hachune Miku appears as a Connect Boss! Defeat her to collect souls to unlock her as a playable hero, and collect tokens to purchase exclusive gear!” — Game’s Event Description
Those who participate in the event (hosting or joining) will receive Hachune Miku Souls and Hachune Miku Tokens. The Souls are used to unlock and promote Hachune Miku, while Tokens can be traded for Souls and powerful exclusive gear.
Tokens can be traded until 8/9 at 6:00 (UTC).
What’s that music playing in the background? Why, it’s “39” by sasakure.UK and DECO*27!
Progress through the Concert Tower for exclusive gear! You can receive Concert Tickets from moving through the levels and these tickets can be used in the Hatsune Miku Trader for great rewards!
Having Hatsune Miku or Hachune Miku in your party will reduce the time needed to restore your heroes by 25% each.
In addition, reaching specific floors and opening chests you occasionally earn after battles will unlock special gear! These three star rarity “Frozen Tuna” and “Bulldozer” items are sure to come in handy!
And of course, the Concert Tower comes with a catchy tune as well: “Streaming Heart” by DECO*27!
