    In the end, Mega 39 does one, very special thing: it takes the incredible Hatsune Miku Project Diva Future Tone, and makes it portable. You can bellyache all you like about a relatively thin tracklist, but “relatively thin” to the ridiculous bloat of Future Tone isn’t really a fault. Not when what is in the pack is still more than any other rhythm game on the Switch, and with the optional DLC to come. Most importantly of all, however, is that Mega39 is a celebration of the world’s greatest digital idol, and a digital celebrity I truly care a great deal about. As such, it fills a major gap in something that I've wanted on my Switch since the day it released. I am now fully on board with the Nintendo Switch being the greatest console ever.

    For the series debut on the Nintendo Switch, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix does a fantastic job at offering an enjoyable experience for players new and old.

    Like its predecessor, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix is astounding. The music remains catchy across all of the genres it tackles, and while the playfield can be busy almost all of the time, the mechanics will place you in a trance once you get into the groove. The more straightforward arcade approach works very nicely, and the alternate control methods do well as far as easing players into the manic rhythm action. The only real drawback is the smaller selection of songs out of the box, but if you can live with that and the hope that more DLC will fix this issue, the game is another must-have rhythm title on a system that has no shortage of excellent titles in the genre.

    Minor shortcomings aside, Project DIVA MegaMix is a wonderful representation of why so many of us cherish Vocaloid-based music and, by extension, these rhythm games starring Hatsune Miku and friends. Sure, there might be a silly aspect to personifying virtualized characters like pop idols, but the music behind it is very real. Vocaloid has given a voice to the voiceless, letting incredible multi-instrumentalists create songs with actual lyrics even if they themselves don't have the ability to sing. And those of us who don't have their level of talent can at least take part in playing some of their best songs through the Project DIVA rhythm games, which now lives on Switch in excellent form.

    Project DIVA MegaMix feels very much in line with Project DIVA Future Tone. It’s all about the sheer amount of songs and costumes, while avoiding any semblance of a campaign. Players will have to make their own path and enjoy the songs on their own terms. The brand new Mix mode is delightful once you get past the initial learning curve and the tried and true Arcade mode is what we’ve come to love about these games. A solid rhythm game through and through, Project DIVA MegaMix returns the series back to its portable roots.

    Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix is as fun as always. The franchise feels fresh and young despite being 10 years old at the moment. The music is highly diverse across a wide variety of genres and modes. Plus, the mechanics are so precise as we could expect from the previous entries. However, the alternate gyro control method are not precise; nor even to novel players. Overall, the game is so fun and well equipped with content that offers dozens of hours of play… even in your pocket.

    Project Diva Mega Mix is a welcome return to Nintendo's portable platform for the rhythm game series. While it doesn't scale well to portable and its Joy-Con motion control mode is a dud, the main mode remains as brutally satisfying as ever. Whether a diehard Miku fan or just a rhythm game enthusiast, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Mega Mix is yet another great entry in the series.

    It's "Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone - Colorful Tone" but update for Nintendo Switch.
    If you want more you're at the wrong place. If you want to play Project Diva on the Switch, then get it.
    One thing I really loved was, that I can switch to the Playstation symbols. That's a nice feature.

    Verdict: It's Project Diva...

    Rating:
    Gameplay: 4/5 - Smooth and challenging as always. The new Joy Con mode is nothing special.
    Level Design: 4/5 - Absolutely great levels, but they're the same as last time.
    Soundtrack: 4/5 - It's vocaloid songs. Of course, it's good. But there's not much new.
    Story: Excluded since rhythm game...
    Graphics: 3/5 - Worse than the Arcade and Playstation versions but still pleasing.
    Length: 5/5 - There are so many songs in here that you'll play this for months.
    Replay Value: 4/5 - Everything a rhythm game needs. But there are no new incentives to play songs again.
    Enjoyment: 4/5 - Great. But nothing new if you played Project Diva before.

    Overall rating: 28/35 => 8/10

If you haven't played the PS4 game, this is a great way to experience a large library of songs, and it is nice to finally play Miku in handheld again like the good days of the Vita. But with this this same game going from arcade to PS4 then to Switch, I hope the next step forward is to give us an all new Project Diva game! Expand

Game play is, well,I bought this as I enjoy rhythm games, not necessarily as a HM fan, and as such, I was pretty disappointed with the game. Game play is, well, it's _fine_, but the sound that is thrown in as the rhythm beat sound is just a tambourine clash, which doesn't add much to the song, and sounds very out of place, detracting from the song. The number of songs that have a plethora of text over the screen makes seeing the prompts harder, and visually it is just kind of an all around mess.

    I played a HM game way back on my PSP, and enjoyed it, but playing this one on the switch kind of feels like it is cashing in only on the Hatsune Miku brand and nothing else. Very disappointing game, exacerbated by Nintendos lack luster return policy.
