Project DIVA MEGA39’s New Features
Project DIVA MEGA 39’s will feature two modes of gameplay: “Arcade” and “Mix”. The Arcade game mode will feature the classic arcade-style game play where you press buttons to the rhythm of the song. In the “Mix” game mode players will wave their JoyCon’s left and right to the vertical scrolling prompts on screen. In this mode, you can feel like you are performing a glowstick routine at a concert.
For yet another way to experience the songs in the game, a playlist feature will be available. This feature will allow you to put songs you enjoy in a playlist, sit back, and enjoy watching the gorgeous animated PVs one after another.
SEGA has also announced that of the 10 new songs for MEGA 39’s, 5 will have new 3D model PVs new to the game, and 5 will use the original animated PVs for the songs. Dreamin Chuchu by emon(Tes.) is revealed to be one of the new songs, and the game will feature its original video by Mogelatte!
