Domino’s Pizza Japan and Crypton Future Media have revealed that Domino’s App feat. Hatsune Miku will soon be coming to Nintendo Switch as a downloadable title.
The original app was first made available in 2013 exclusively for iOS as part of a promotional event. Domino’s App feat. Hatsune Miku has since been removed from Apple’s store, leaving no way for new users to be able to download it. The app primarily allowed users to place orders with Domino’s, but also included additional content such as a camera function which allowed you to insert Miku into photos of yourself and an augmented reality mode which, when pointed at a Domino’s pizza box, would display a virtual stage for Miku to perform on.
While the Switch lacks a camera to make the augmented reality features possible, the Switch version of the app will still allow users to place online orders with Domino’s while being bombarded by Hatsune Miku imagery. Much of the original illustrations and music from the original app will also still be present.
“We are truly excited to bring back this collaborative app,” said current president of Domino’s Pizza Japan, Robert Kinney. “Now you can look forward to being able to conveniently place orders right from your Nintendo Switch. And once your pizza is delivered, have some fun with Miku!”
The app will also include several minigames that weren’t present in the original release such as a mode where the player uses the Joy-Cons to make pizzas as fast as they can to the rhythm of Hatsune Miku songs in order to avoid losing their minimum wage job.
Domino’s App feat. Hatsune Miku for Nintendo Switch is planned to only be released on the Japanese eShop. Those who pre-load the app before the release date will also get a special limited version, in collaboration with Capcom, titled Domino’s App feat. Hatsune Miku feat. Dante from the Devil May Cry Series.
