Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f Comes to PS Vita Today

Aaron Webber's Avatar Posted by Associate Brand Manager, Sega of America

PS Vita owners, rejoice! The big day is finally here, and Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f is available today for download on PlayStation Store for PS Vita in North America!

The game releases on PSN today for $29.99, and for all you European readers, it will be available next week on March 12th in Europe! If you’ve never heard of this game before, here are the basics: Take the world’s most popular digital singer, add in over 30 of her most beloved songs, turn it all into a super-addictive rhythm game, and you’ve got Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f. We released the game last August on PS3, and following huge support from fans, we’re so excited to finally bring you all the PS Vita version of the game today!

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f on PS Vita

We’re also very excited to announce our DLC Cross-Buy promotion, effective immediately for anyone who owns the Snow Miku 2013 DLC or the Extra Characters Pack DLC for the PS3 version of the game. If you already own this DLC content, you’ll unlock it for free when you pick up the PS Vita version of the game! (And vice versa, if you pick it up for PS Vita first.)

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f also comes with a built-in video editor mode, aptly titled “Edit Mode” – here, you can build your very own rhythm game tracks and music videos with all the in-game tools at your disposal! PS Vita owners will also be able to share and download their Edit Data with PS3 users!

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f on PS Vita

Some of you were wondering if we’d bring out the Extra Songs Pack in the West – and we’re happy to confirm not only that it’s available today, but that we’ll be releasing it for only $9.99! We lowered the price on this compared to the Japanese release, because we wanted to ensure that PS Vita owners weren’t paying any more for the full Project Diva experience than their PS3 brethren. We hope you all will enjoy it!

This pack includes the songs below, with four difficulties for each:

  • Tell Your World (By livetune)
  • Tokyo Teddy Bear (By Neru)
  • Dream-Eating Monochrome Baku (By Nem)
  • Sweet Devil (By Hachioji P)
  • Rin-Chan Now! (By Owata P & sezu)
  • Senbonzakura (By Kurousa P (White Flame) )

Thank you all so much for helping this Miku dream of ours come true. You’ve been nothing but supportive from the first day we asked for your likes and shares on our Facebook post, and since then, we’ve come all the way to the launch of Project Diva, not just on PS3, but finally today, on PS Vita, too.

It’s a journey we’re so humbled to have made, and so thankful to have traveled with all of you behind us and supporting us.

Happy Miku Vita Launch Day, everyone, and thank you, once more!

5PM EST can’t come soon enough. Can’t wait to put my money down and support this franchise. Sincerely hoping PDf2nd is next on the docket, and we eventually get localization announcements alongside new Project Diva title announcements so as to save me importing every Japanese version at launch, haha.

Thanks so much to the team that made this happen, and a sincere thanks to Sega for making what must be the best annualized franchise continue to be great for nearly five full years. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store.

    +10 points for the kind words, and another +10 for supporting the series. Thank you Liam – it’s thanks to fans like you supporting us that the story behind this game unfolded as it did, and we appreciate that more than a starving man appreciates a surprise new york style cheesecake.

I’ve been refreshing the PS Store all morning waiting for this to show up. I’ve wanted it since it came out in Japan. PS3 version is a no go for me because my wife will kill me if she has to listen to it.

    Thank you in advance for supporting the game, Matsu, and hopefully in time your wife can be slowly swayed over to the dark side. :) (And by dark side, I mean the most excellent side of addicting musical goodness.)

So the day has finally come….It seems like only yesterday when you came on this blog Aaron and announced a Vita version of Project Diva f was coming to NA. I will definitely be picking this up when the store updates later today (and I am very tempted to get that DLC as well).

Thanks again for bringing this title over!!
(now, about that Phantasy Star Online 2….)

Project Diva f for Vita contains the same tracks from the PS3 version, minus the Extra Songs Pack (This was included free with the PS3 release) right?

    Aaron Webber's Avatar

    Aaron Webber said:

    March 4th, 7:57 am

    Almost, yes! Since the PS3 version has those tracks included and a higher price point ($50), we wanted to ensure that PS VITA owners weren’t paying any more than their PS3 counterparts to get the exact same amount of content.

BlueBl1zzard said:

March 4th, 7:47 am

@Matsurosuka just a heads up, the store doesn’t usually update until around 2pm PST (5pm EST).

Not touching another SEGA title until you people get your a$$es in gear and bring out PSO2. I’ll take it on PC even. And what ever happened to the Shining Series in the west? This company does nothing but squander its IPs and then complain about Western penetration. Well, you won’t penetrate if you don’t even try, and not everything can be a hit. But hey, we’ll get another 5/10 Sonic game next year. I’m actually quite a positive and enthusiastic consumer, but SEGA could take several lessons from TecmoKoei or even Bamco in how to utilize their IPs outside of Japan.

Or just wither away into obscurity. That’s also an option, and the path they’re headed toward.

    Aaron Webber's Avatar

    Aaron Webber said:

    March 4th, 8:02 am

    Hey Christian – thanks for the comment!

    While I don’t work on PSO2 or anything related to Shining Force, I was a big (read: really big) PSO fan, and played the originals for a good 3-5k hours across different platforms. As to SF, I only heavily played the Genesis versions, but I really loved those.

    One thing that I do want to note is that a title like Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA f isn’t something you’d probably expect to see here in the West. We worked really hard to try and bring this series out for you all, and I hope you can share in the joy that Miku fans can have today at seeing the game release. I appreciate your dedication!

March 4th, 7:50 am

You have my support once again for Project Diva f. Bought the PS3 version on release and will do the same for Vita.
You can tell a lot of love and care went into this game from its artistically crafted cinematography for each video and thoughtful button presses that goes perfectly with the beat of each song.
Project Diva F was my personal Game of the Year for 2013, not The Last of Us or GTA V. Even though those two games have unique experiences of their own, Project Diva F kept me coming back to better my performance with each song with its addictive gameplay.
Hope to see Project Diva F 2nd in the West soon, you will definitely have my support once again!

Thank you so much for bringing Hatsune Miku to Vita!! I can’t express how glad and excited I’m to get this game today as soon as I come from work. I was not a Miku fan a few months ago, until a friend of mine introduced me with her songs and I fell in love of the game….Now here I am waiting for the store to be updated in order to purchase it on the release date!

Happy Miku release date for everyone!!

    Aaron Webber's Avatar

    Aaron Webber said:

    March 4th, 8:23 am

    That’s really awesome! Thanks for sharing that story – we expected there would be many people who were probably being introduced to Miku for the first time with the game or the music this year, so hearing that directly is really nice.

    Thank you so much for supporting the series, Pith!

is the Vita Demo releasing today? I promised I’d give it a try and if I like I’ll get it, but I wanted to wait for a Vita demo to try the version I’d have ended up buying if I do.

Hayterfan said:

March 4th, 8:29 am

Wait so the extra song pack is just the songs labeled extra on the PS3 version?
Anyway planning on downloading it later in the week, as soon as I get some extra cash, and I make some room on my vita (probably finish my vita save of The Walking Dead)
Also really contemplating on downloading F 2nd when it hits the JPN store, unless Sega announces a U.S release soon after the JPN release
So about that PSO2, Yakuza 5 and Ishin localization?

    Aaron Webber's Avatar

    Aaron Webber said:

    March 4th, 8:54 am

    Hi Hayter – yes, that’s right. Since the PS3 version has a higher price point and comes with these songs, we adjusted the prices for VITA to make sure that you wouldn’t be paying any more than a PS3 owner would when you finally picked up every piece of content. Thanks in advance for supporting it, it really does make a difference!

I hate to go off topic but I cannot see a Japanese Sega game being released in America without bringing it up, is there any news for Yakuza 5? Yakuza is one of my favorite franchises and I’m still counting on seeing more of them come to America.

    Aaron Webber said:

    No worries, though I don’t have any news on that title, sorry! I had the pleasure of getting to work on Yakuza 3 and 4, and really loved those games.

    That’s right! Good memory. :)

    We’ll be releasing those on our Project DIVA f website, as well as introducing a new interactive community element called the “Mikustream”, where you can submit pictures you take using Project DIVA f’s portrait mode, which will show up on our official page!

@30 No it wont, if you have a japanese edition you need to get the Japanese DLC
You can go here to playasia to get JPN cards, will cost a few bucks more for example a 1000 yen card (roughly $10) will cost $15

AAAARGH!!! Update the store! I needs to get my Miku on! LOL. Off work for Mardi Gras, I can’t wait to get the Vita version. I broke down over the weekend and bought the PS3 version and am addicted. I can’t explain why… and I’m horrible at this game, but I can’t stop playing it. Does anyone know if the saves transfer? It’d be nice if my unlocks were available on the Vita version, but I guess it’s not a big deal if not.

Dialga712 said:

March 4th, 8:54 am

I have a question about the price difference of the US and EU versions.
Why is it 36,99€ in Europe?
That’s far too expensive if you look at the exchanges between US Dollar and Euro.
29,99$ (US Price) are ~22€.
That’s 15€ more than people in America are paying!
The PS3 ver. had a fair price with 49,99$ in the US and 44,99€ in Europe.
Why this difference now?

@StalkerD look on the PSN store, there is definitely a PS3 demo. It’s pretty good, too. It had several songs to try out but it’s missing all of the side stuff (like the Diva Room, which honestly I feel a little creepy about… but I think I like it.) Not sure about a Vita demo, though.

    Aaron Webber said:

    There will indeed be a VITA demo, and it comes out today along with the full game. :)

eucalyptus39 said:

March 4th, 9:01 am

Yay! I bought a ps3 for this game so of course i bought a vita for this version as well! Nice to know the price is reduced from the ps3 version! So… I’m assuming we’re not getting the DLC with popipo and the kuro and toro customization items that was available as DLC for the Japanese version.

I’ll be waiting for an announcement of the sequel. Also what time does the psn update and is it going to be possible to transfer save files?

    Aaron Webber's Avatar

    Aaron Webber said:

    March 4th, 9:35 am

    You bought both a PS3 and a VITA just to play Miku? That is some dedication! Very impressed, seriously.

    No news on the Popipo DLC from Japan, and even though that one wasn’t possible, we did our best to make sure we brought over as much content as we could.

    Thanks so much for your constant support of the series!

    That’s right – the Snow Miku 2013 DLC and the Extra Characters Pack are both supported by Cross-Buy, so if you own those on PS3, you’ll get them automatically on VITA.

    Separate trophies between the West and Japan! (And separate trophies between the PS3 and VITA version, too.)

Shiggitay said:

March 4th, 9:10 am

I’m so getting this when it’s posted to the PSN! I’ve had the Japanese release since its release back in 2012, but I was annoyed when the PS3 release came out that it had more songs that I couldn’t get. I’m happy that I don’t have to get a PS3 now just for this game and those additional songs.

With that said with the game itself I’mma get that $10 song pack and play the heck out of the ‘new’ songs.

I have one question though: When I purchase and download this US localized version of Project Diva F will it be able to access the same save data file that my Japanese cart can? I’d prefer to not start over since I have a few songs on ‘hard’ where I’ve achieved EXCELLENT status. Not easy to do for me.

Thanks!

    Aaron Webber said:

    March 4th, 10:03 am

    Thanks for supporting the series in the West, Shigg!

    The save data will be separate between the Japanese and US versions, but the good news is that also means you get an entirely new set of trophies too.
