Sega’s mobile divisions will be celebrating a successful festive season after announcing that Hatsune Miku: Colorful Stage is now a top-ten rhythm game in 85 countries.
Gamers who might indulge in the oddHololive subscription will already know that virtual idols are a dominant force in the entertainment industries, but there’s one name that continues to dominate above all others. Hatsune Miku, the blue-haired pop icon from Japan, is almost instantly recognizable and now this online star has another chart-topper under their belt. Sega and Colorful palette Inc may have only launched Miku’s latest rhythm game on 8 December, but it has already racked up enough downloads across iOA and Android devices to make it a top 10 rhythm title across a ridiculous 85 countries.
The title racked up more than 350,00 pre-registrations ahead of its initial release, and while Sega hasn’t confirmed the full number of downloads, it has topped over 1 million downloads in the Japanese Google Play store alone. This might not be quite the same numbers that mobile RPGs like Marvel Future Revolution are doing but it’s a solid early performance for a game that mainly resonates in Sega’s home territories.
For those of you not familiar with Miku, Colorful Stage is the latest rhythm game featuring the virtual idol. Players picking up this title can immerse in deep storylines featuring world-famous virtual idol, Hatsune Miku, and friends in five bands. They can also tap their way through regularly scheduled live-streamed virtual concerts featuring Hatsune Miku and other virtual singers like Kagamine Rin, Kagamine Len, Megurine Luka, KAITO and MEIKO. With a ton of songs, plenty of additional content, and a base cost of zero, this is probably worth a look for fans.
