    For those of the uninitiated; I am mostly the only one on the ProjectDIVA.net fourms who talks Nintendo Switch and the potential this game series might have in it’s full form on the system. In an effort to keep things simple through means of explaining one topic at a time, I opted to use a multiple threads to better give each of these topics their own spotlight, and post at least one paragraph a day (albeit not on a schedule or anything) since I want to keep things short, sweet and to the point.

    As much as Hatsune Miku; Project DIVA X is by all means meh in comparison to everything else, one thing it had going for it outside of some prettier visuals and grindy nature was it’s most marketed feature: a Story Mode. The latest thing I am talking about in detail is multiple Story Modes; yes, I mean more than one story mode, each with it’s own songset, moments and unlockables. How I got the idea was just recently was by looking at the series’ oldest rivals in the rhythm/music genre; Dance Dance Reveloution, or in the case of one game in the series in particular; 2005’s Dance Dance Reveloution: Mario Mix for the Nintendo GameCube. It was basically how that game carefully blended elements of the Mario series up to that point, blending it with the formula of DDR and in addition to subverting said gameplay with minigames that blended Mario-elements to create a good package. Despite the mixed reception of DDR: MM (not to be confused with DRM...) back then, I thought it proved itself a worthy game in DDR’s history.



    Stay TUNEd tommorow for more.

    With Dance Dance Revolution Mario Mix given a fresh look, then I remembered looking at a IGN article discussing 5 mario crossovers that the staff would play. With Viva Piñata, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, and Rollercoaster Tycoon at positions 5 to 3, with Mickey Mouse being the top choice I was surprised that Hatsune Miku (no mention of Project DIVA) made it not just as a choice made by IGN to include; but as their second top choice period. They never mentioned DDR: MM, (sounds alot like the electronic term DRM doesn't it?) this is what they said in their article and to me at least sounds like a good concept. (no pun intended);

    “Mario games are filled with memorable music, and it would be great to see both classic Mario tunes, along with new remixes, available in some type of rhythm game. Perhaps it's time for Nintendo to have Mario join forces with another one of Japan's stars. And that's where the one and only Hatsune Miku comes in.

    Mixing the universes together here is easy. Mario gets sucked into a computer, meets Miku and friends, and rhythm-based musical madness ensues. If we're really lucky, it would even include a frantic rendition of Jump Up, Super Star!”



    (The whole thing in video form.)

    EXTRA: for your listening pleasure, the English and Japanese versions of Super Mario Odyssey’s iconic theme song; the aforementioned Jump Up, Super Star!, Sung by American voice actress Kate Higgins [who some might recognize for her roles of Miles ‘Tails’ Prower and Lissa from the Sonic The Hedgehog and Fire Emblem series.] and Japanese songwritter Aimi Mukohara [being her 1st role in video game music] respectively;




    More coming soon
