    So this game would be higher if the models didn’t conflict with the music videos... they kinda stand out and are too shiny. Not only that but there is not as much music as one could hope for compared to the PS4 game Future Tone.

    Large amount of songs and the personalization of the characters are amazing

    Almost a Future Tone port with different tone shades that gives it a more anime feel. It does have new songs and new game modes with the joy cons and even touch screen mode. All in all its Hatsune Miku so I'll buy it anyways.

    Project Diva Megamix is, at its core, a port of the FutureTone game with a little less content. However, the ability to take such a fun and addictive rhythm arcade game on the go makes up for it. Megamix, if purchased with all available DLC, delivers around 141 songs to jam with anytime, anywhere on your Nintendo Switch.

However, the ability to take such a fun and addictive rhythm arcade game on the go makes up for it. Megamix, if purchased with all available DLC, delivers around 141 songs to jam with anytime, anywhere on your Nintendo Switch. There are a lot of the more popular songs from FutureTone here, with a somewhat sad small selection of brand new tracks - but enough to feel fresh enough.

    Gameplay wise, the regular arcade mode is just as solid as before and operates fine. The new "mix mode," which utilizes motion controls, is rather on the jank side unfortunately. I can't tell if it is the game or the Switch that can't barely detect the right joy-con's position - when I tried playing it was almost impossible because it seems like it never reads the position of the right joy-con. But that's fine, as I will keep sticking to the arcade mode.

    Performance wise: Megamix runs at least at 30FPS, which is fine as the notes overlay (the part that matters) doesn't ever seem to dip or fall out of place with the song. In docked, the game can obviously handle running a little extra details, but it runs perfectly functional in handheld mode as well - but that's for the gameplay portions. The videos on the other hand, are a different story. You can tell which videos were made for this new hardware and which ones were ported. Videos for the new songs are clean, sharp and colorful with fluid animation. VIdeos for the old and returning songs, while some aren't noticeable, a LOT of them look muddled down, and I've even had a couple drop frames in its performance (did not affect gameplay). The look of these videos are probably the biggest problem this game could have.

    My last issue with megamix is the initial offering of songs for those who bought the base version. There are 5 or 6 dlc packs upon release, which you can get all of with the deluxe version for $60, but sadly these DLC packs are all just songs already in FutureTone (some DLC for that game, the rest its base pack songs). It's a little disappointing as I'd much rather have seen a push of DLC for new songs in the Vocaloid industry. In fact, Megamix is more of a port, as previously mentioned, because besides a new T-shirt editor and gameplay mode, it doesn't do too much to change things up. It brings the extremely fun PS4/Arcade game to your Switch for portable fun - which is a major selling port here - while bringing some newer vocaloid favorites into the mix. But it still relies on the same old library of tried and trued Vocaloid songs, and an abundance of those songs were DLC purchases to boot. Groove Coaster's vocaloid mix is so much more dynamic and fulfilling at this point. Regardless, Megamix is still a great buy for die-hard Vocaloid fans. All of the classics plus some hot new hits are all here to play whenever you want to test your rhythm and jam. Only slightly held back in its content offerings and some videos not looking so hot, Megamix is an overall good rhythm game that you should add to your Switch library.

    Hatsune Miku Project DIVA Mega Mix is a great opportunity for all people who have never played a Hatsune Miku title. But if you are already familiar with the saga, here you will only find a somewhat limited port of what you have previously played.

    Mega Mix offers a lot for Switch owners to enjoy, even if the title doesn’t live up to the standard the series has set for itself.

    Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix is a strong portable version of a truly joyous rhythm game which loses out a little in terms of track numbers in comparison to the likes of series stablemate Future Tone, but makes up for this with a surprisingly solid Switch-exclusive motion control mode alongside touchscreen controls and a new art style that helps keep things running smoothly as you blast your way through its eclectic mix of excellent music. It's a perfect fit for dipping in and out of in handheld and is extremely welcoming to newcomers whilst still providing plenty of tough challenges for veteran rhythm game fans. If you're a follower of this particular genre, then Project DIVA Mega Mix comes highly recommended.
