Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f Coming to PS Vita

Aaron Webber's Avatar Posted by 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.

@95 Xenosaga you need to talk to Nintendo and Namco I think, considering Namcom owns the Xenosaga brand, and Nintendo owns Monolith Soft. but yeah Id kill for a Xenosaga HD remake

    I tried bartering for the rights to Xenosaga with my jar of souls, but they said something about royalties and I don’t think they accept jars of souls as payment, unfortunately.

Great news!!! Happy to hear! Altough I already bought the Japanese version from eBay I’m still looking forward to it. Finally I may be able to use the editor mode too. I hope the next Project Diva will be available in the UK store at the release! :)

    Thanks for double-dipping, Tohno!

    You probably already heard, but this game is coming out digitally on the UK PSN store, too!

One more thing, though slightly OT, thanks for releasing Typing of the Dead: Overkill on Steam recently.

I LOVE THAT GAME!!! ^_^

    November 6th, 12:18 pm

    It’s alright, we’ll allow it… just this once. :) Glad you’re having fun with Typing of the Dead: Overkill!

    I seriously think that’s the kind of game (well, maybe without the swearing) we should use to educate kids on how to type.

    “Type faster, Timmy, or the zombie gets you!”

I supported the PS3 release simply to show Sega that they should reconsider not localizing their games. I can’t say I’m a particular fan of the genre, so I’m not sure if I’m going to buy the game again just to make a point (honestly, this could have been a Cross-Buy). It’ll depend on the price. That said, the game I really want to see localized for the PSP/PS Vita is Valkyria Chronicles 3. To see a franchise wither away like that after reaching a worldwide audience with its first installment is disheartening. Even though it’s been released 2 years ago, the potential buyers arguably increased due to compatibility with the PS Vita and the upcoming PS Vita TV. It stands out as one of few PSP games that people still want to see localized (along with Type-0). Sega can even help by making VC2 available on the PS Vita, or making the original game available as a digital download. Anything that gives the franchise a second chance.

    Aaron Webber said:

    November 6th, 12:22 pm

    Thank you for supporting the PS3 release! I’m with you on the Valkyria Chronicles love – it’s a great series and I would encourage everyone reading (who hasn’t already) to pick up a copy of the original for PS3. I think Draikin will back me up on saying that, provided you enjoy RPG’s or Strategy games, you’ll love it.

    I don’t have any news on VC3, but Valkyria Chronicles is a personal favorite and I really enjoy the series. Always nice to hear from others who feel the same.

TubaDude49 said:

November 6th, 12:21 pm

Off topic, I know, but since you’re responding to everyone I’d thought I’d ask. Is there still DLC in the works for Sonic ASR Transformed? I remember seeing that poll a while back, but not anything from it.

    Aaron Webber's Avatar

    Aaron Webber said:

    November 6th, 12:26 pm

    The polls were actually all user-run – essentially, unless you hear official news from SEGA, it’s best to take everything with a grain of salt. :)

TubaDude49 said:

November 6th, 12:26 pm

Also, massive thanks for reading and responding to all of these. The posts don’t get handled this diligently most of the time.

    You’re very welcome. I know I’d definitely appreciate it if someone close to a game I loved took the time to respond to me, and I feel it’s important to offer that level of interaction with all of our Miku fans. Thank you for the kind words!

Nerroth said:

November 6th, 12:27 pm

Looks like that last comment/question might take a while to be processed…

In the meantime, I was wondering: how does Sega look at the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise at this point?

If I recall correctly, Sega Japan were involved somewhat with the first HDN title, but don’t seem to have a direct role in the franchise at this point (though the various incarnations of Planeptune, and the CPUs and Candidate who personify a post-Dreamcast console war that might have been, remain prominent in the series).

Even if they aren’t involved in the ongoing franchise anymore (or are they?), do Sega still wish Neptune, Nepgear, and Plutia well as “their” characters, at least in spirit?

    Aaron Webber's Avatar

    Aaron Webber said:

    November 6th, 12:36 pm

    A very interesting question. To be entirely honest, I’m not involved in the Neptunia franchise in any way, so I don’t really know SEGA’s thoughts on that series. I do think it’s pretty neat seeing character inspired by classic video game consoles, though. :)

This is great to hear and this might be the first game that I double dip for but I am perfectly okay with that.

But much like everyone else I would be even more excited when SEGA announces the sequel is coming our way as well, and to have my EXCITEMENT METER enter OVERDRIVE please announce that Valkyria Chronicles III is coming over in any shape or form

    Aaron Webber said:

    November 6th, 12:40 pm

    Really appreciate your support, Armored – thank you in advance if you do end up double dipping!

    No news on the other titles you mention, but it’s very nice to see that level of excitement and dedication for our franchises!

I also would love to see Skies of Arcadia Hd. I still have my Dreamcast copy, even though my Dreamcast broke over 10 years ago! I want to see Vyse, Aika and Drakma in hd. I will give you my soul AND my firstborn to play this on vita!!

    Aaron Webber's Avatar

    Aaron Webber said:

    November 6th, 12:42 pm

    Soul AND firstborn?

    Suddenly, I worry we may have started a dangerous trend here…

    (On a more serious note – always nice to talk to another Skies of Arcadia fan.)

Silent_Gig said:

November 6th, 12:47 pm

This is good news for the people who wanted it on Vita. I already own the PS3 copy and ive had fun with it.

I guess my requst is on the same level as those who want to see Valkyria Chronicles 3 to make an english appearence. Also is there any reason why SEGA west cant put VC1 on PSN? It seems like a no-brainer for extra sales, i know id rebuy it digitally.

@AaronWebber:

You are such a sweetie and your customer service is second to no one on the PS blog. I know because I read every blog, every day and have for years. So I decided to try the demo of Miku because of that. I couldn’t figure out what to do, and so the game kept telling me how awful I was, lol.

Will the Vita game have full tutorial mode so a complete noob like me would know what and when to do things? If so, I’ll show my appreciation by buying it.

And let me add to the slightly off-topic: I’m a big Atlus fan, so….Demon’s Souls for Vita please!!!!

    Aaron Webber's Avatar

    Aaron Webber said:

    November 6th, 4:20 pm

    Aw, thanks Lisa!

    I really appreciate that you tried out the demo just because of my comments! Don’t let your score at the end discourage you – I know you can do it! :)

    The full game on PS3 and on VITA both offer a tutorial mode that will teach you the ropes! Likewise, there are a number of good guides out there on the internet, too.

    I don’t have any insight into Demon’s Souls, but overall, thank you again for the feedback!

@64 – Unless Sega US changes it, the PS3 and Vita version have a shared trophy list.

@99 – It is not compatible with PS Vita TV, as it requires the vita’s camera to use AR features.

I have played and platiunumed the JP version of this many moons ago. The only thing that will get me to double dip for a NON-physical copy is if it has all the added PS3 content included. Those 6 extra songs were an additional $30 in Japan.

    Aaron Webber said:

    Thanks Errantia! We’ll have more news regarding the extra DLC songs in the near future.

MadCatUS said:

November 6th, 1:39 pm

Well, it’s nice to see that Sega (and Sony) has faith in Vita and it’s userbase (myself included) in the West. Time to pay back for the faith by buying the game for the fourth time (yes, I have both english and japanese copies and original japanese Vita game as well). Keep up the good work, there is a sequel that we also want. :)

    Nice! Virtua Fighter is a great series. I remember playing a ton of NiGHTS on my Saturn… mostly because my kid-self didn’t have enough money to afford anything other than the sampler, at the time.

After Yakuza 5, VC3, PSo2 and this game not coming to the west I had lost my faith in SEGA.. with this I just renew my Faith in you guys!
i’m not specially good on rythm games (atually pretty bad) but like Miku’s songs and coreographies… so ‘ill buy this and PS3’s soon… and I’ll keep beliebing in that PSO2 and VC3 and Yakuza5 can make it to the west some day…

PD: Phantasy Star NOVA isin our Wish list too ;)

    Thank you, Demoni! Glad to hear that your faith has been restored.

    The great thing about Miku games is that as you start to learn the song, it’s really easy to get into the beat of the rhythm. After a few plays on a single song, I’m sure you’ll start nailing it. :)

    I don’t have any other news on the franchises you mentioned, but thank you for the feedback!

    As to those comments… there are more still to go! I can’t stop yet. :)
