Following a fantastic reception to the PS3 and PS Vita release of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F in North America and Europe, SEGA is proud to announce that we will be bringing Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd to the West later this year!

That’s right. You’re not dreaming. We believed in all of you and we asked for your support – and you gave it to us without reservation. It was your supportive comments, your encouraging words at every place we showed the game, and your drive that made all the difference. Some of you bought the game twice – others three or even four times. But whether you picked it up once or four times, all of you helped make Miku a success, and still do. Thank you so much for that.

Now, it’s our turn to believe in you once more.

This fall, we will be releasing Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd for both PS3 and PS Vita. Project Diva F 2nd features similar but improved gameplay over the first game, with a whopping 40 songs – a collection of the best new songs, and some of the most loved classic songs, previously only available in the Japanese releases. You can check out two of those in our trailer!

Besides 40 songs and four difficulties for each in the Rhythm Game, players can look forward to the return of the impressive Edit Mode feature, which lets you build your very own videos and Rhythm games using all of the in-game assets, and share them online with the world. It has seen notable improvements over the first version, and we can’t wait to see what amazing creations you all will build with it!

And finally, because we like good news, I’ll drop a hint here that we have some fun stuff in the works for our Western release. I’m pleased to confirm one of those things right now: We will be releasing a packaged version of the game for both PS3 and PS Vita!

One of the primary comments we saw across the internet over the last year was that PS3 owners loved their physical copies, and that so many PS Vita owners wished one was available. We begin our campaign today by announcing that whichever platform you own, you’ll be able to reserve a physical copy of Diva F 2nd when it releases!

We’ll have much more news regarding Project Diva F 2nd as we near E3, but in the meantime, we hope this news has made your day a little brighter.

Thank you all once more for supporting us, and here’s to the future of Hatsune Miku in the West!

      We are too. We’re really thankful that you guys rallied to help make the first game such a success. You’ve done your part, so we’ll keep doing ours! :)

  • Wow, SEGA, I haven’t even had the time to try the demo for the first game with the backlog on my Vita. It’s good to know that there’s another coming if I like it! :)

    Now, about Valkyria Chronicles 3…….. ;)

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      Give it a try – you’ll be hooked within about 15 minutes. :) Then you can get the first game to hold you over until F 2nd!

      No word on the VC series from my side, but personally, I beat both VC1 and VC2, and would gladly recommend the series to anyone I know.

  • TheBigSpoon

    haha oh man. I’m importing this one… looks like I may have to get this version too.

  • Sega, I feel I can forgive you for not localizing Yakuza 5 & VK3 now.

    holycrapthisisawesomenews!! :D

  • Cool more Miku, you are great.

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      You’re very welcome. We saw so many comments asking for a physical PS VITA version on the first game, and we really wanted to make it happen for F 2nd. We’re so excited to reveal that today for all the PS VITA owners!

  • goldenbird15

    That’s so cool, i own both ps3 and vita versions. Can’t wait to own these as well.

  • PainOfSarrow

    what did i just witness….

      Thank you for supporting the first game, Grim! We’re excited to be able to share today’s news with everyone, and it wouldn’t have happened without your help.

  • FANTABULOUS! TAKE MY MONEY!

  • XxMike466xX

    OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!!

    I’m not dreaming right? Thanks for making my dream come true, I just purchesed Miku for the Vita and it’s my favorite game for ths system so far. Thanks Aaron for the great news and I will definitly buy the PS3 and Vita versions XD.

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      Miku is your favorite VITA game? That’s awesome to hear.

      You are not dreaming – and we hope we’ve made your Tuesday a little brighter! Thanks so much in advance for offering to support both versions.

  • o-mistborn-o

    While tied to Vocaloid but not published by Sega, you should look into bringing over “IA/VT -COLORFUL-” as well.

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      We’re all eyes on Miku F 2nd right now (and on doing the best job we can with the release), but thanks for the comment!

  • eucalyptus39

    Aaah! Vita physical version! I love you so much oh my! Even though I already preordered the japanese versions, I’ll definitely get it localized too! *dies*

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      Aww, we love you too! Thank you for the support, Eucalyptus. :)

  • Consider it pre-ordered. I hope this is an indication of a trend. I’ve played every game in the series so far.

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      Thanks so much for the support, Dave! Glad to see even more love for the series.

  • “That’s right. You’re not dreaming.”

    OMG I’M NOT DREAMING!!! :O

    MIKUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!

    • Aaron Webber

      Did I accurately predict what was going through your mind? :)

      Happy Tuesday!

  • Very cool. And thanks for making it a physical release on the Vita!

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      You are very welcome! We’re really stoked to be releasing a physical VITA version this time.

  • ein_nineteenth

    For localizing something people want, I have to THANK YOU SEGA. <3

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      D’awww. We <3 you as well, Ein!

      Thank you for supporting the series!

  • Thank you very much for this great news Aaron!!

    I purchased and played Project Diva and all DLC content for my Vita. Like I said before, I was not a Miku fan a few months ago….but now I play all my favorite songs at least once a day and I’m really good at it!

    Thanks again for bringing Project Dia f 2nd. I’ll make sure to get it on release date!

    PD: My current favorite songs from PDF1 are: Acute, World’s end dance hall, World’s end Umbrella, Black Rock Shooter, Freely Tomorrow, Tokyo Teddie Bear and Sadistic Music Factory! *w*

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      We’re really excited to have made your morning that much brighter, pith!

      Personally, I think it’s really cool to hear from people who had never seen or heard of Miku before this game, and now own it + all the DLC! I stand by my assertion in previous blogs that this game is really addicting, in a good way.

      Thank you in advance for supporting DIVA F 2nd! As to your favorite songs from F1, good choices! I love a lot of those as well.

  • Firestorm_ZERO

    @o-mistborn-o

    For IA/VT -COLORFUL-, you should be asking XSEED. XSEED is a subsidiary of MarvelousAQL which is developing the game.

  • Aaron…I wish to hug you…for announcing this…

  • pPpPancakes

    Hot DAYUM! Conception II demo, FEZ and Miku 2nd physical. Only negative moment of the day are school exams. :/

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      Good luck in your exams! Hope the news helped make your morning awesome.

  • TheWintendoHii

    Wow, thanks for making the start of my work day an exciting one! Great timing on the announcement by the way, I was really tempted to import this after getting my platinum on the Vita version. I’ll hold off on that now, I’ll support this release this fall by getting both versions.

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      Excellent – thanks so much for the support, Wintendo! Also nice to hear with regard to the announcement timing – the feedback is really helpful, thank you. :)

  • Firestorm_ZERO

    I have my PS3+Vita JP imports on the way. Will be double (or should be quad?) dipping :)

    Now where’s my Yakuza Ishin and Phantasy Star Online ;)

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      Quad-dipper alert!

      Quad-dipper alert!

      Thanks a ton for supporting the series so much, Firestorm. :)

      No word on either of the other franchises you mention, but having played / worked on both at some point in the past, I know they’re really great series.

  • Thank you SEGA!!! TAKE MY MONEY!!! any news on the AR cards of the firts game?

  • shadow15972

    I second (or third or fourth….) Valkyria Chronicles 3 for the west! VC2 Was so dang amazing, and sad that it went away with my psp. (I sold it to help buy the vita) I can’t even download it because it’s not supported on the vita on the psn store, only psp! :(

    Anyways, nice to see you guys liked the sales/reception of the first game. I welcome more Miku. :)

  • o-mistborn-o

    @Firestorm_ZERO

    I did not know that, thanks ^^

    I have it pre-ordered regardless, but it should a gem for the west as well.

  • YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

    I’m assuming Project Diva F/f sold fairly well that you guys decided to bring F 2nd to the West?

    Already ordered the Japanese PS3 version, but you bet I’m getting both Vita and PS3 copies. Especially since “Melt”, my favorite Miku song of all time, is in here.

    This fall is gonna be aaaaaaaaaaaaaawesome.

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      Yes, that’s right – SEGA was very pleased with the reception of the first game! We owe the thanks there to all of you, the fans who supported us and continue to do so. Please keep spreading the word and telling your friends!

      This fall will indeed be awesome. Nice choice on Melt, as well!

  • ServantRider

    THANK YOU! It really does mean a lot to us to have a physical copy of the game. I’m going to be importing this but I still want an English copy :)

    Is there any chance that the physical copy (or even just the first run of it) will have a full colour manual? It was a bit of a letdown when the PS3 version stateside received a subpar manual while Japan had a beautiful full colour one :(

    I’ll likely pick it up either way to support localization, but it’s kinda depressing knowing that our games come with cheaper manuals.

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      You’re very welcome! Thank you for supporting Miku in the West.

      As to the physical versions, no news yet on the details, but the feedback is always appreciated. : )

  • so it’s the fourth time…
    Really I REALLY happy about this news, in the same time I feel sad because I have paid whole price for import version of PDF2nd (about 70$ seeeeeeee)

    so, at this moment I dunno if I’ll take the fourth time of PSvita project diva (2nd english) but if I have money to burn later I’ll be glad to spend it for Project Diva 2nd

    REALLY BIG THANKS for all of you SEGA

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      Glad you’re happy – on the plus side, you’ll definitely enjoy the game! When the English versions release in the fall, hopefully that’s enough time to have saved up enough to support them here. : )

      Thanks again!

  • Wow, seriously incredible news! I only hope that when you say Fall 2014 that it means prior to mid-September because it’s going to be awfully hard for me not to pick up the Japanese version during my trip to Japan. Plus I’d love to have a new Miku game to play on the plane :)
    Any chance of a PS3/Vita bundle for those of us wanting to pick up the game for both consoles?

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      Happy Tuesday! Days like this are the best. :)

      As to your question of a bundle, no news from my side, but all feedback is appreciated!

  • Yeeeaahh! Physical Vita release!

  • sharkman2048

    Physical release for EU/UK too? Not just US?

  • Aaron I feel you need a pat on the back too. You’re like the bridge between Sega and it’s fans and are always so helpful.

    good job bud. :p

  • ragnarok_weapon

    YAY! I bought the first project Diva F 4 times. This time I could just get the NA one for the PS3 and Vita :)

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      Another Quad-dipper! Thanks very much for supporting the first game four times… and in advance for supporting the NA versions this fall!

  • Yes! Thank you for all your hard work Aaron and everyone else at SEGA who helped make this happen. Looking forward to it. I already have both western versions. Amazing game.

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      I’ll pass on the thanks to our entire Miku team here at SEGA. I know at least a few of them will also be reading these comments directly, so they’ll get to see your note firsthand.

      Thank -you- for supporting the series, and helping make this possible!

  • OH MY GOSH YEEEEEEESSSSSS!!
    ALL HAIL MIKU!!!
    Thank you so much doods. I am crying from all the happy.

  • TheOathsworn

    Wasn’t expecting to see this announcement happening anytime soon. Well SEGA finally surprised me for once. Count me in as one of those who will most likely purchase this day 1.
    Only thing I`m not so sure about is as to which version I want to buy, I ended up getting both versions for the previous release.. might end up doing so again if I can`t make up my mind.

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      We like to surprise sometimes, especially in good ways. Thank you for pledging your support for the game already – it really helps!

      As to which version… they’re both pretty awesome. If you can’t decide, “Both” is a perfectly acceptable answer!

  • necroalucard136

    Thanks for going through with this game and even releasing a physical package for all those that wanted it. I got Diva F on PS3 but I’m definitely getting f 2nd on Vita.

  • Well, my Japanese Vita copy is due to arrive on Friday… BUT I will absolutely support the Western release too (as I did with the first one, even though I had both the PS3 and Vita import editions).
    I love that SEGA is bringing this series to the West. I was lucky enough to go to E3 in 2012, when you had a couple of Vita units set up, playing Project DIVA f, and the SEGA reps told me then that a US release was almost entirely dependent on the fans. It’s great to see that SEGA listened to the Vocaloid fanbase here in the West. :)

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      It is kind of amazing, looking back. A lot has happened over the last couple of years… and almost all of it good!

      Thank you for being part of that story, and helping make this series a success. :)

  • so glad they added kagerou days as a song!

  • TheExiled12894

    This is great news! PDf is the first rhythm game I’ve ever gotten into. I find it a bit difficult but the music is so good and I really enjoy it a lot. Meiko and Rin are my favorites. Definitely grabbing Project Diva f 2nd ^_^

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      Thank you for supporting us, Exiled! Practice will make perfect, so don’t give up! :)

      The good news is, all of the skill you build up now will automatically transition into F 2nd later this year!

  • Oh, and I’m secretly hoping that one of those upcoming announcements might be another Miku US concert to promote this release…?
    Come on SEGA and Crypton, you know you want to bring Miku back to America!

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      No news on that front, but thanks for the comment, Budapesti!

  • YES! Great news! This is a definitely a day one purchase for me.

    Are there any plans for a launch edition or a pre-order bonus? A CD soundtrack or a code to download the soundtrack would be great!

    Thanks again!

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      Thanks for supporting Miku, Johnny!

      As to your question, it’s too early currently for me to say if that’s possible, but feedback is always appreciated! (I know I’ve said this a few times now, but it’s very true.) Thank you!

  • Wow, I’m surprised you’re bringing 2nd over so soon after the 1st game’s release on Vita! Keep up the good work, guys! But, um…..will the game have Cross-Buy support (at least for the PS3 version)?

    Now, about Valkyria Chronicles and getting Phantasy Star Portable 2 back on PSN for Vita owners to play….There’s like, no support for the Phantasy Star series in the West anymore (not counting the Genesis games being resold digitally)…:(

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      We’re really excited to be able to bring it over for you all – many of us who work on the series here at SEGA are also big fans of Miku / the Project DIVA series, so it’s always nice to get to work on something you love!

      No news on cross-buy support for F 2nd, though we did offer that feature for some of the DLC (Snow Miku & Extra Characters) across the PS3 and PS VITA versions of the first game.

      Finally, no news on either of the other two series you mention from me, sorry! I’m purely focused on Miku today, but I’ll pass along your comments.

  • Miku has certainly proven herself across the Pacific. Thanks, Sega, for giving gamers the chance to prove their passions.

    Now, this may be the stuff of pipe dreams, but is there any chance, by whatever arrangement (like, maybe Sega online exclusive or some fluff), for the physical package to instead include a digital download code? No Vita, m’self, but I see more value in eliminating the whirring and clicking of a disc drive, as well as spanning my one purchase over my two PS3s (personal and living room).

    • Aaron Webber
      Aaron Webber

      It’s thanks to all of you guys that we were able to make this happen!

      No news on your query about a digital download code included, but it is a good question!
