Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Dreamy Theater Extend Arrives On PS3 This Summer

By Spencer . May 29, 2012 . 6:30pm

projectdexOn top of Hatsune Miku Project Diva f, Sega also has a high definition version of Hatsune Miku Project Diva Extend. However, like other Dreamy Theater releases Hatsune Miku Project Diva Dreamy Theater Extend requires the PSP game.

 

Players will connect their PSP with the game loaded to the PS3 which will output HD quality graphics. Data from the PSP game can be used in Dreamy Theater since you’re essentially playing the same game.

 

Hatsune Miku Project Diva Dreamy Theater Extend is slated for release as a PS3 digital download this summer.

    Does it actually require the game? I thought 2nd only required a save.

    It’s… kinda odd to announce this now, when the Vita game is coming out and we already know an actual PS3 game is coming out next year. Though that’s pretty much how it’s always been, so… hmm.

    • Xerain

      Right, but there is the possibility–which I swear I saw hinted in some official release somewhere–that the vita version won’t be repeating any songs from the previous versions.

      • Patrick McAleer

        Melancholic is in f, and it was already in Mirai.

        Although one out of four (and one that I haven’t played yet) is still off to a tremendously good start.

        • Xerain

          Project Mirai =/= Project Diva

          They’re two different lines of games running on different engines with different core mechanics.

          • Patrick McAleer

            I know how different it is, but I wouldn’t ever consider Mirai to be separate from the Project DIVA series.

            Maybe it’s just personal preference as far as the series goes?

          • Xerain

             While you may not, SEGA certainly does. This is why the named the game Project Mirai: Future Stars and not Project Diva: Future stars.

            Finally, I’ve located my source. Here it is:

            Note the use of the word “series.” I imagine Miku Flick is considered the beginning of its’ own series as well. A potential sequel to it would probably be titled something like “Miku Flick 2nd” instead of “Project Diva f: Miku Flick.”

      I only got Miku Diva 2nd and Dreamy Theater.. there’s this app you need to d/l to your PSP in order to bridge the PSP & PS3, I forgot if you need the UMD in there, maybe it just reads the save file.. but you can’t unlock songs or add points by playing on the PS3, could only be done when played on the PSP..and you need to play the songs on all the difficulty levels again to get the PS3 trophies, so it’s quite repetitive..  If people want to play HD Miku on a big TV, they might as well wait for the PS3 game to be more straightforward instead of hooking up one system to another.. (I don’t play portables on the road, so..), not to mention expensive getting 2 games.. I think Dreamy Theater was like 3700 yen or something.. and for the memory card too, silly word pun lol..

      BTW, for Dreamy Theater 2nd, 3D only works when you watch the songs, not while you play them..

      • Xerain

         It cost 3900en. While you do not need the Project Diva UMD in your Drive or the Digital version on your memory stick, the verification app will test to make sure the save file was originally created on your PSP.

        So downloading a save file won’t work, but if you know a friedn with the game, borrow it, and make a save file, Dreamy Theater will be able to use any of the songs you had unlocked while you were borrowing the game, but nothign more…  ..well you’d also have access to all the songs from the original Dreamy Theater. Those are like a free bonus, though they are not as complex, as they lack button holds.

        • Aoshi00

          yeah, forgot it was 39.. so almost 4000 yen.. a 5000 yen card goes for like $84 now, and the PSP game was like $70-80.. so it was expensive to get both..  still troublesome to connect the systems together every time to boot it up on PS3, but the graphics was a lot better..  I’m actually not that big of a Miku or rhythm game fan, just wanted to chk the game out before..

          • Xerain

            As of DT 2nd you only need to connect them once, assuming you’ve already unlocked all the songs and modules.

          • Aoshi00

            yeah you’re right, it’s been a while since I’ve played it.  Only when you unlock new stuffs you need to transfer and update the data again.. so that wasn’t so bad.

  • ShugoTakahashi

    YES! This is the news I was waiting for! Extend has my favorite soundtrack of the series; I’ve always wanted it in HD.

  • Xerain

    Godammit. Trying to save up for a Vita here!

  • http://www.facebook.com/1tsuki.kun Itsuki Higashi

    About time. But now i strained between getting a Vita or a Ps3. (or both.. if i manage T.T)

    Either way its gonna implode the wallet.

    Honestly, I hope that the new PS3 game which comes out next year won’t require a VITA to be conneted as you play …

  • Kitsune Miku

    Goddamn it! I only just got Dreamy Theatre 2nd a couple months back… Why are they so damn expensive! Its just an App! If it worked as its own game I wouldnt have any issues. ¬_¬

    That problem aside though this is good cos Extend really does have the best tracklist and great variation. No doubt I will get it, Im just not happy it took so long to happen. >:(

  • CirnoLakes

    High definition versions make me happy.

  • Endy Operin

    The image of this article on the main page is so cute ^_^ Can anybody tell what’s the name of that song?

    Upd: nvm, found original image. I wish I could get clean version.

  • AzureNova

    As awesome as this sounds, I long for the day when they will just make a Project Diva game that will just work on its own when I put it in my PS3.

    • DS23

      Sega’s said that the Vita game will also get a PS3 release next year so the day isn’t super far off.
