I’m happy to announce that I was lucky enough to get an interview with Zero-G. Under the cut the company talks about the development of Sonika, plans for their older Vocaloids, as well as talk at bit about Tonio.

While 5 years don’t seem that much to most people, it kind of hard to believe that Vocaloid began 5 years ago. Yup, that right everyone. Lola and Leon, aka the first Vocaloids, turn 5 today, and while most people in the Vocaloid fandom don’t celebrate this day or are even aware who Lola or Leon are. I am very happy that they were created.

Kodakami ,or Koda-P as he would like to be known in the world of Vocaloids, has recently shared that the developers of an freeware RPG has agreed to using Vocaloids Big Al, Lola, and Miriam for the music in their upcoming game AD Lucem.
Here is a example of one of the Vocaloid songs featured in the game:
The lyrics are written in a made up language so don’t bother trying to understand it.

So, if your a huge Engloid fan try to do something special on those days to show that your happy that these three softwares were created.

1st Place – Sega’s Hatsune Miku: Project Diva PSP Game Limited Edition (Plus Nendoroid Figure)
For more info please go here.
Leon, Lola, and Miriam are now at the discount price of $80 each(originally 199.95). I’m not sure why the sudden price change, but I think it has something to do with Sonika selling so well.

Sega announced today that they will soon be bringing the Vocaloid-themed PSP rhythm game Project Diva to arcades. Not only that, but between October 15th and Halloween, they’ll be accepting fan-contributed songs for inclusion in its soundtrack.
Songs can be entered for consideration via the game’s new channel on Nico Nico Douga, and both pro and amatuer Vocaloid Masters are welcome to try out. The tracks must be all-original material, obviously, and should run between 2:30 and 3:30 in length. Winning songs will be announced on the Nico Nico page November 16th, and their creators will be showered with Hatsune Miku swag as a reward. They’ll also get to hear their track included in the game’s location in January, and probably in the final game as well.
Little is known about the arcade version at this point, partiularly about its control scheme and interface. If you’ve got a Nico Nico account, you can check out a teaser clip of the game. It doesn’t show much aside from the new character models, but they themselves look great, and the clip is set to Ryo/Supercell’s Meruto, which is always nice to hear. Equally as nice is hearing the classic “Sayyy-Guh” Sega intro as spoken by Miku herself. We’ll bring you more info on this title as it becomes available.

What is most interesting about this news is that it doesn’t specify if you have to use Crypton Vocaloids only. Which make me think that it is possible that Vocaloids from all companies (Internet Co.,Zero-G, and PowerFX) can be used.
