Hatsune Miku and her fellow Vocaloid friends made their Nintendo Switch debut this week with the western launch of Project DIVA MegaMix. Our beloved blue-haired virtual pop idol has voiced so many hits over the years alongside Luka, Rin, Len, Meiko, and Kaito (who have their fair share of banging tunes). And since MegaMix includes a total of 101 songs in the base game, you might be a bit overwhelmed as to where to start, especially if you're new to the Vocaloid world.

For the uninitiated, Project DIVA is a rhythm game series that adopts the music made by artists who use Vocaloid software to provide a singing voice in their songs. The game's note charts are made up of face buttons, directional inputs, and left/right bumpers that sync to each song's rhythm, and you need to keep up. Wonderfully drawn or animated music videos play in the background of each track, too. These games have been an absolute joy to play because it lets us take part in music we love and even discover new favorites. So, after putting 12+ hours into MegaMix myself (and countless more in previous series entries), I've decided to recommend my personal favorites that are playable in MegaMix.

"Alien Alien" is one of the cutest and catchiest songs in MegaMix.

If you're thinking about giving this new Switch entry a try or wondering what the big deal is with Hatsune Miku rhythm games, be sure to read my full review of Project DIVA MegaMix.

Of course, this is not a definitive collection, but rather a ranking of my favorites, ranging from songs that've been personally meaningful to ones that are just straight up fun to play through. Over time, I may even warm up to other songs or grow fond of ones I may have overlooked, so there could be updates in the future. Granted that we all have different tastes in music, I'd suggest giving all the songs a try at some point.

It's also worth noting that DLC packs for extra songs are available for MegaMix, but were not included in this list. If you have some Vocaloid favorites that either didn't make this list or aren't in the MegaMix soundtrack, let us know in the comments.
