Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f Coming to PS Vita

Aaron Webber's Avatar + Posted by Aaron Webber on Nov 06, 2013 // Associate Brand Manager, Sega of America

Hello there, PS Vita owners! Halloween may have just passed, but SEGA has one more special treat for you.

Following the fantastic response to the PS3 release of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F, SEGA is proud to announce that we have now begun development to bring Project Diva f to PS Vita in the West!

Hatsune Miku + PS Vita

Yes, you read that right. You’re not dreaming. Watch the Vita announcement trailer above, take a deep breath, and then let loose that smile.

Now, I want you all to think back a few months to when we released Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F on PS3… do you remember what the user comments here on Playstation.Blog looked like?

“We want the Vita version!” you told us. “Please, I’d sell my soul for a Vita version!*” someone said.

Today, we’re overjoyed to not only share the good news of a PS Vita release, but to also finally add a shiny new soul to our collection. (We’ll put it in our lobby, right next to the big Miku standee.)

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f will be releasing in early 2014 on PS Vita, and we’ll have more news on the title soon.

In the meantime, let us know what you think in the comments! As usual, I’ll be responding to as many comments as I can.

Happy (early) Christmas, Miku & PS Vita fans!

*Not an actual comment… probably.

Thanks for the news and bringing this over Aaron. It’s nice to see Sega working to localize some great games.

That being said, PLEASE talk with your team to see what you can do to localize Phantasy Star Online 2 (PSO2). There are tons of people who are requesting this and would play this in a heartbeat. I know the game is technically free-to-play, I personally would be willing to put down the normal Vita game entry fee of $40 just to be able to play this game in English.

Many thanks again, and keep up the great work!

That’s awesome! Please, please, please tell me that there will be a physical release. I can’t take any more of these digital download only titles on Vita! Memory card prices are too high and I am constantly having to delete games and apps on my 32 GB.

Side Note:

Yakuza 5 and Phantasy Star Online 2 (Vita): Any news? Fans are desperately waiting for these too in the West!

    No news from me on either Yakuza 5 or PSO2, but I’m personally a big fan of both franchises. (After about 10,000+ hours on the original PSO, I think one qualifies as addicted…)

Quick question
-If this is like the original Vita version, will you be providing the DLC packs for the PS3 exclusive stuff (Both the free content and the paid DLC) also?
-If the reception is good enough for the Vita version also, will you guys consider bringing over the sequel too?

@ #11: You’re not allowed to be picky. You should be fortunate Project Diva even did well in the first place and you should be even MORE fortunate support for the game continues. It is a niche title and you’ll deal with it.

Having said that, thank you Sega. I’ll get this on Vita when I can. Still looking forward to PSO2 on PC though.

For anyone that didn’t get the pre purchase free fall map, (because they pre loaded ghost)go to the where you bought it from on the store and you will have the option to “choose versions” choose the one that says free. You should start to download the game and the free fall map pack.

I second (or is it third or fourth at this point?) that I would REALLY REALLY LOVE for PSO2 to come West, both on PC and Vita. I’m a PC gamer and Vita owner, so I was really looking forward to having a game I could play on my high-end gaming PC and then continue on the road, or while laying in bed.

I know the Japan and West markets are different, but the game has done so well in Japan and it’s the type of genre/game that does well in West moreso than this (Miku), so don’t really understand what the delay is.

Must say, everyone will have a ton of fun with the AR photo ops available with Miku and the crew. I’m going to guess that it will be in the US version? I think I had just as much fun with that, than I did working through all the songs.
