on July 18, 2013 12:58 PM

At long last Sega fully unveiled the mysterious Project 575, that the publisher teased for a while with dancing silhouettes on Youtube. The project is split in two parts: a game for the PS Vita named Uta Kumi 575 (Song Builder 575), and an app for iOS Uta Yomi 575 (Song Reader 575).

On the PS Vita front players will have the two protagonists of the game Azuki Masaoka (voiced by Yuka Otsubo) and Maccha Kobayashi (voiced by Ayaka Ohashi) dance and sing on the screen. During the song there’ll be blank spaces in the lyrics that can be filled by the player himself, personalizing the song  in real time thanks to the Vocaloid system.

The iOS app will instead featured a lite version of the Vocaloid system, and will let players write sentences and songs and have the two characters recite and sing them.

Project 575 will also involve several linked initiatives and a whole lot of merchandising for sale, like shirts, iphone covers and cellphone straps. Below you can check out a trailer for each game and a gallery with screenshots, artwork and both logos.

The iOS app will be released on July the 26th, while the PS Vita game will come in 2014, but will be playable at Tokyo Game Show.
