Set the Stage – Dress up Hatsune Miku and her friends with more 340 unique costume modules and accessories across the Future Tone packages. Players who purchase both packages will get access to an exclusive feature where they can mix and match costumes and hairstyles.
Bring the House Down -Future Tone takes full advantage of the PlayStation 4 and will present all of the arcade-style action rendered in glorious 1080p/60fps.
Both packs will be available when the game launches for PS4 on January 10. Sega describes it as a “pure arcade experience,” where players will unlock more songs as they play the songs available in any of the five difficulty modes; Easy, Normal, Hard, Extreme, and Extra Extreme.
