Vita owners, you have no idea how lucky you are. We are about to get an absolutely fantastic game tomorrow and you don’t even know it. No, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f isn’t getting a surprise release. DJMAX Technika Tune is making it’s PlayStation Store debut!
DJMAX isn’t a huge name outside of Japan, but rest assured that it’s among the best rhythm games available in Asia. Actually, if you’ve been to a GameWorks in the last year or so, you may even be familiar with DJMAX Technika as they occasionally have the arcade version. It’s a music game played by touching on-screen indicators to play a song. Different indicators require different kinds of touch, which is what makes the whole thing challenging and worth playing. DJMAX Technika Tune is essentially the same thing, only portable. A song plays, a bar goes across the upper and lower parts of the screen and you tap the indictors when the bar reaches them.
You know, this would be a lot easier if I just showed you how to play. So watch the DJMAX Technika Tune trailer. It’s a lot better at showing how this works than I could ever be.
You can tap the front touchscreen or the back touch panel to play, whichever is more comfortable for you!
So, DJMAX Technika Tune hits the PlayStation Store tomorrow. A price hasn’t been announced yet. If you buy it on a cartridge through the DJMAX Technika Tune website, it’s $49.99.
I only have one concern about DJMAX Technika Tune, and that’s screen size. I’ve always played DJMAX Technika on a larger screen at GameWorks, so I’m curious if having a smaller screen will hurt gameplay. After all, you have to be pretty accurate when hitting those notes and they look a lot smaller than the ones I usually tap.
