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.

Thank you for some great news. We would love to see Yakuza 1 and 2 in HD on a Vita. Many Gamers in North America would buy it (not even mentioning how many would buy in Japan). Also Sonic Lost World or Generations would really be great on the Vita.

Very glad to hear there was a “fantastic response” to the PS3 version. I managed to essentially sell 3 additional copies of it by getting friends to get it (one of whom has platinumed it). I preferred the PS3 version over vita because it is nice to play it on my TV but will probably buy the Vita version to add to the sales numbers :)

Obviously you can’t comment but here’s to hoping that we have a better chance at seeing Project Diva F 2nd over here in the US.

I wouldn’t be a fan of the series if I didn’t mention that I would still like to see Yakuza 5 (actually I want Yakuza Ishin more), though as you said at PAX those are like trying to translate War & Piece multiple times. Also I know you can’t comment but can you please let the powers that be know that we really need to know what is happening with PSO2, letting it hang in limbo right now is like the worst thing they can do to the fans that were expecting it.

Awesome news! Haven’t been bit with the Hatsune Miku bug yet, but I’ve been a fan of rhythm action games since beatmania/DDR, will pick up. Also, did want to chime in that I’m also a fan of PSO2, US localization was actually my primary reason for purchasing a vita.

Hatsune Miku Project Diva F in Japan have a Free DLC that enable PS3 save to be used on PS Vita.

This sadly doesn’t help me as I have a EU PSN and Vita version is Digital Download only. (unless Sony/Sega is nice enough to enable US PS3 to work on EU Vita game :P)

So according to the Sega Blog, it’s digital only. But no where else I’ve read about this has really talked about that.

I’d assume it is then?

And if so, I’m not too pleased about that. I have a 4GB card, and the odds are you’ll charge full price for the digital only release anyway like so many do. And that’s just some anti-consumer b/s I refuse to support.

    It’s the same as the Japanese version, which is very close to the PS3 counterpart. There are a few changes between the platforms, but the heart of the game remains unchanged – and now it will be available on-the-go. :)

I already have to deal with Tecmo x Koei’s BUUUUUUUUUUULLCRAP with no physical Atelier releases.
They’re like 3gb’s each, eating my memory card.
God they piss me off so much.

Also just a side note but ps3′s IS KINDA close to the end of it’s life, the vita is just beginning! I recommend if anything doing physicals for vita and digital for ps3.

It’s only logical.

Like, really.

Also thank you so much for getting us the Vita version.

Especially since ps3′s have more storage space than vita’s my god, highest amount a vita memory card you can get is 64gb’s,

While the lowest amount of storage space a ps3 is 120gb’s or 160gb’s now I don’t remember what the lowest is on market currently.

Neat, bought the first one on whim and found myself enjoying it, so I think ill double dip if its not too much (if its $30 ill buy)
I do hope that we can turn off the touch screen function, after trying the demo for Project Diva F2 that annoyed the hell out of me.
Also I cant avoid asking this when a Sega employee around but where is Yakuza 5, Yakuza HD, and Phantasy Star Online 2, ive been playing the japanese version of PSO2 on my vita ill admit, but damn it I want to know whats being said lol.
Also if you could relay it to Sega Japan, PSO2 for PS3 and PS4. I would buy every last bit of DLC made for those

Although this may not be the type of game I want, it’s good to see new localized Japanese titles on the Vita. In case you’re wondering, I really enjoyed DOA5+ and Virtue’s Last Reward, for example. However, since music is an important part of my life, maybe I should give this one a try.
Oh, have you thought of offering anime in the PSN video store? (Japanese audio with subtitles preferred)

    If you like music, you should give it a try – the songs are extremely catchy.

    I first played the game for about 30 minutes (on VITA), and then I realized it had actually been 3 hours and I was still in the office at 9PM.

    So, in short: highly addictive, great music, and there’s even a free demo up on PS3 right now. Try it out!

    Ah, the beautiful Miku VITA system… no news on that, but I’d love one, too!

In the event that the Vita TV were to show up in the West, will this game work on that device?

(I didn’t see the Japanese version on SCEJ’s list of currently Vita TV-compatible titles at http://www.jp.playstation.com/psvitatv/game/psvitalist/ – but one would imagine that list expanding once the software update adding DualShock 4 support surfaces in time for the PS4′s Japanese release in February.)

I was one of the guys begging in the previous blog post, so it’s only appropriate that I thank you profusely for it! I’m really happy and excited, and I hope we’ll see the second one come out in a similar fashion!
