Besides 40 songs and four difficulties for each in the Rhythm Game, players can look forward to the return of the impressive Edit Mode feature, which lets you build your very own videos and Rhythm games using all of the in-game assets, and share them online with the world.

Hatsune Miku Project DIVA F 2nd is a newly released rhythm game on the PS Vita that is a sequel to the other Hatsune game released some time ago. As you probably know, Hatsune Miku is an artist that only exists as a hologram and her voice is made from a synthesizer software. The music is very real though and she performs all kinds of music between rock and cute j-pop. The game itself is a rhythm game where you need to tap, hold, flick and do other weird things to the Vitas touchscreen to the beats of the songs. There are around 40 new songs and you can watch some gameplay and hear some of the music in this video review.

Roundabout

Game: Roundabout
Developer: No Goblin
Release: 2015
Genre: Puzzle

 

 

 

 

What’s Roundabout? It’s a ’70s B-movie game where you get to drive a constantly spinning limousine. We’re using a cutting edge next-gen technique called “full motion video” to recreate and render each passenger that rides in the limo with lifelike accuracy.

Roundabout has been released on PC for a while already and is now coming up for the PS Vita and the PS4. It is similar to the old GBA game Kuru Kuri Kururin, if anyone remember that one. You play as the driver Georgio who has to “drive” a limousine that is constantly spinning around itself. You need to pick up and leave passengers while avoiding obstacles and pedestrians. Or not avoiding pedestrians, the game is kind of gory and it doesn’t seem to matter… Have a look for yourself here in this trailer or in this Giant Bomb Quicklook. Between stages you get to watch cheesy Full Motion Video cutscenes with “actors” that are really random people from the gaming industry. There is also cross play and cross buy between the Vita and PS4, and, as the developers say themselves, “really anything else that we can find that starts with the word ‘Cross’”.
