Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd Coming To PS3 And Vita In Spring 2014

By Spencer . July 9, 2013 . 12:48am

image Sega is continuing the Hatsune Miku: Project Diva series with Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd. The game was revealed in this week’s video game magazine round up. The concept for Project Diva F 2nd is the Project Diva you know so far and the Project Diva afterwards. Sega promises more depth and evolution in Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd.

 

Songs "Colorful X Melody," "Romeo and Cinderella," and "Akatsuki Arrival" have been confirmed to be in Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd. The game will also have modules created by Kuuma and Nezuki.

 

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd is slated for release in spring 2014 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

    Very good news. I’ll preorder Vita version as soon as it will be available.

  • b4lmung

    Oh Yehhhhhh!

  • Chrystofax

    Well course am getting this, since I’ve gotten all the other PSP/VIta Versions

    • http://Youtube.com/Dyjuan1 Rising Overlord

      Same here I can’t wait for the ps3 version next month on the psn. YAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • transferstudentx

    i wait for the localization i really hope the first one sales helps to localize this on ps3 and vita this time

  • Anonymous

    Hmmm, Since we are getting f, I’m sure f 2nd will be localized, If it sells well

  • Highasthesky

    I hope this game gets localized..

  • Raze

    Yess!!

    Thanks Sega

    I’ll definitely getting this…

  • http://momentsreprieve.com/index/ Aushria

    So those three songs imply that we’ll have a whole slew of returners and a bunch of new songs, along with Diva F’s selection. I’m pretty sure the old songs will far outweigh the new, especially with a name like that.

    I honestly expect this to be Project Diva 2nd, Extend, and F shoved into one. Also using F’s systems and style as the basis.

    Pessimism aside…I’ll get it, I just hope they make scratch notes more responsive on the Vita and the for the Star notes on PS3 to be more sensitive to your flicks of the analog sticks.

    Star/Scratch notes are my only pet peeve with Diva F, and I would much rather have the “Hold” notes from Arcade over them.

    • Erikdayo

      I wish they’d release the arcade version for consoles. Or at least have an arcade mode in Project DIVA F 2nd. I would absolutely buy a special arcade controller for that. Especially if it’s like the new arcade game w/ the slide bar. Slide bar seems a lot more fun than the swipes. I have the PDF arcade controller right now, but honestly, the mini controller from Hori is more fun to navigate.

      I’d also say it’d be nice if they added in holds like the arcade version. The holds being on separate shapes would be great. And if they just in general added two- four button presses into the game that weren’t just like right and circle or up and triangle, that would be awesome.

  • ギャビン

    PS3 is going to have a lot of games I’m going to want to play beyond what I thought it would. With that said, I hope they get cracking on a PS4 version.

  • HassanJamal

    Thats cool. What bout a new VC? Please Sega, you know we want it!

  • Altin

    If they just announce Yuzuki Yukari – I will buy this instantly.

    • AkuLord3

      And IA…DO IT SEGA!!!

      • Kevadu

        I would *love* to see IA in a game like this, but keep in mind that she and Yuzuki aren’t by Crypton so that’s pretty unlikely. Though they did put Gumi in Mirai…though not with that many songs. And Gumi is still the most popular non-Crypton Vocaloid (though IA is certainly up and coming). The focus of these games has always been the Crypton Vocaloids and I imagine that whatever deal Sega has with Crypton is going to keep it that way.

  • benhofb

    Hmm. How did the US version of Project Diva F do? I really hope it did well enough to justify a localization of this one for both the PS3 and Vita… Sad me and my “no PS3″ issues…

    • AkuLord3

      Ummm bro, its not out yet, got to wait a bit until we decide that. Though who knows, Sega knows there’s a good number fan base now that will buy it and “probably” do well so we’ll have to wait and see

      • benhofb

        Oh crap… Well, color me uninformed. I hope it does well! These games and Vocaloids in general have quite an interesting niche here in the states, so hopefully there will be a big enough fan base for the game do do well!

  • Patrick McAleer

    Yes!!! I love Akatsuki Arrival, can’t freaking wait for this!!!!!!

    I hope it comes out at the same time for both systems.

  • Erikdayo

    Can’t wait! :)

  • SoundMatch

    Gimme them Vocaloid games! I”LL TAKE ON ALL OF YOU!

  • Guest

    VITA?! FUUU YEEAAAH, THIS WEEK IS VITA’S LOCALIZATION WEEK!!
    P diva, danganronpa, demon gaze, and curry XD

    • Kevadu

      Localization? This is news about Japan. The game is being announced for the first time.

  • http://ryuz4ki57inenglish.wordpress.com/ Thomas FROEHLICHER

    YES YES FU*** YES!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ruu

    Please let this be 60fps this time like the dreamy theater games!

  • artemisthemp

    So this will be localization, if Project Diva does well in the West?

  • Demeanor

    Waaaaahhhh!!! Waaaahhhh!!! (uncontrolled_fangirling) a remake of Romeo to Cinderellaaaaa!!!

    Ok, ok, wishlist, wishlist…

    - competitive mode where players can clash for better scores/longest combos etc.

    - improved search features for edit data: search by song name, filter only completed songs, mandatory links to the mp3 files, not just 3 slots available

    - RIP=RELEASE PLAYABLE! And also Ai Dee, Kusari no Shoujo, Yuuhizaka and so many more songgggs I want…

  • Aristides

    I really would love a Vita localization T_T, too bad they’re not localizing the first one for Vita *sob* *sob*

    • artemisthemp

      Sadly doubt they will, unless Vita pick up steam with sales

      • Aristides

        I guess I’ll have to Import -_- I really wish I could read Japanese though. At least PD games are very import friendly.

  • Kamuii

    hmm.. 2 songs that already in PSP… :/ what a disappointed, no offense just saying.. Why not the other songs (For example Wave, Sarishinohara, Whats Color, Mind Scientist, Hitorinbo Envy, Circus Monster, Aku no musume series, etc)? Sorry for my bad english

    And I hope there’s another vocaloid like Yuzuki Yukari, Gakupo, and the others. It will be awesome

  • Steven Johnson

    Well That was fast… XD

  • anthy

    Ah! So excited! :-)

    Wishlist idea that I’m totally stealing from alexwordstheater (and which Sega will never see since I doubt they care about a Westerner’s opinion, but hey, still fun to write this):

    1) Western release, please! Assuming that Project Diva F sells well enough in the West, anyway. And please tell us far enough in advance that people can make a proper decision as to whether they want to import or wait. (Simultaneous release in Japan and the West would be awesome, but I’m thinking that probably won’t happen.)

    Also, personally I’d love toggleable English-translated subtitles on the PVs.

    2) Not too many songs from older versions of Project Diva! Two out of three of the songs announced are repeats so far. Though I know people’ll want their favorites, I want new songs, too! Like, I’d love it if at least 2/3 of the songs were new to Project Diva. There are so many other songs out there. Please, Sega?

    If we have to have repeats, I would love it if any repeats have brand-new stages / new storylines to the PVs.
    And If they can port things from Project Diva Arcade, I really want Deep Sea City Underground.

    3) Song wishlist: it will be a crime and a shame if Ai Dee, Death Should Not Have Taken Thee!, and World Domination How-To aren’t on this one. A CRIME

    Also: other new-to-Project-Diva Kagamine songs in general (especially: Proof of Life; Anti-Chlorobenzene; Magic Mirror; Alluring Secret, Black Vow; anything by Nem or Jesus-P or Mothy; any good rock songs with Rin? I’m out of the loop), Toeto and Secret (sung by Luka…how has Toeto not happened yet, did I miss it), ANYTHING by T.Komine-san (especially The Path To Eternal Happiness or The Happiness and Peace of Mind Commitee), Eight-Hundred (with Miku), a new Sasakure-UK song (preferably Twee Box Puppet Show, but anything really), a new Dixie Flatline song (was that one Miku/Luka song done by them?), a new Wowaka song, at least one or two good new Kaito songs. As many duets or multi-singer songs as they can fit.

    At least one impossibly hard song on the same scale as Singing Passion of Hatsune Miku, and a couple more really hard ones.

    Super unlikely to happen, but Alice Human Sacrifice; Kagome, Kagome; Bad End Night; Dark Woods Circus; Synchronicity; or any huge ansemble vocaloid story-based song would be great. Especially a creepy one.

    New stuff that I haven’t even heard of but that’s fabulous anyway.

    Also: Reboot. I know it has Samune Zimi in it, but… Do it anyway, Sega. Make people cry.

    4) More songs from vocaloids other than Miku! Miku’s adorable, but she has the lion’s share right now. Would be nice to get more of…just about anyone else.

    5) Modules: I want Future Style Len. (Hey, we got Future Style Rin last time. Should be possible, right?)

    I kind of doubt it’ll ever happen, but I’d also love to see a module for IA.

    OK, I’m done. If even 1/4 of the stuff above actually happens, I’ll be thrilled.

    • Demeanor

      Wow, you’re a bit of a gold mine of content to check out, in my ignorance I know about 5% of the things you mentioned ^ ^

      I would definitely die for a remake of Magnet (with proper butterfly headphones this time!) and Hoshikuzu Utopia, some “gimu nan desu! Gimu desu yo!” and moar Luka songs like Akahitoha, Black Gold (curse you, PDA… XD), Meiteki Cybernetics, Dancer in the Dark, and lots more. Well, they sure have quite a pool to choose from, I wonder what *Hatsune Miku English* will bring to the table!

      AndIalsowantSFA2Miki!!! XD

      • anthy

        I don’t think it’s ignorance – I think our favorite vocaloids are different, and there’s such a huge body of songs…so different songs are on our radars. Like, the only songs I recognize on your list are Magnet and Black Gold (which I was a hair from mentioning – it’s awesome!) I think I’d like a redo of Magnet, too…they could do some really interesting things with a new stage, I think.

        I’m more of a Kagamine girl myself…that and duet+ songs, and songs with a solid storyline, and tear-jerkers, and weird-but-awesome songs like T.Komine-san’s troll songs. (I love your new icon, BTW. XD )

        Sounds like you are more of a Luka fan, maybe?
        I don’t always seek them out, but I also love me some great Luka songs… I’m gonna need to check the rest of yours out. :-)

        One of the reasons I love Project Diva is that I always find new songs/producers through them that I would’ve never found on my own but that I love. Like Mitchie M! Never would have looked him up if I hadn’t seen the Freely Tomorrow PV in PD.

        Oh, BTW! I remembered the Miku/Luka song that I thought was by Dixie Flatline. It wasn’t by Dixie Flatline after all…it was “Ladies First” by OSTER Project. If you’re a fan of Miku/Luka songs, look it up…it’s like pure spun sugar in song form. I’d love to see that one in Project Diva, too.

        Also looking forward to what they do with English Miku. :-)

        • Demeanor

          Thanks for the post! Yes, you guessed right, besides the mandatory XD queen Miku I’m definitely a follower of Luka’s sorrowful and disco tunes. Since I’ve never felt the call of the Kagamine twins myself (although I certainly like many of their songs, like Roshin Yuukai or Yume kui shirokuro baku) I’d be very interested to know how YOU see them, what sets them apart from the others in your eyes? It’s not a “challenge” of course, I’d just like to hear your different point of view.
          Lately I’m discovering a love for “ethereal”, “sense of infinity” songs like Silence, filozofio, DYE and Gift nor Art, I love how I keep discovering new and new stuff with Voca music!

          Oops, I hope we aren’t going to get so caught up in a fan chat that it wouldn’t be appropriate to conduct it in this thread anymore XD it’s so refreshing to actually talk with fellow Vocaloid lovers, there’s no one like that irl around here XD

          • anthy

            Re: what I see in Kagamine Rin & Len…sure, I can try! This is kind of hard, though, since I could go in so many directions here that I’m not sure where to start.

            I guess I’ll try a list?

            1) I’m fond of them as characters. I know that there isn’t really a canon in vocaloid, but enough songs have built up over the years to get a sense that Rin’s generally cheerful and somewhat reckless, and Len’s more serious and thoughtful. They balance each other, and the whole BFF thing they’ve got going is refreshing. And when they really get going with twinnish antics, it’s a whole lot of fun. :-)

            2) The stories! I love vocaloid pop and dance music, too (especially in Project Diva), but I’m primarily drawn to vocaloid because of the whopping good tales.

            And the Kagamines seem to have more than most, somehow. I suppose it’s a function of them being packaged in the same software, but people naturally gravitate toward writing duets for them, or having them answer each other’s songs. And a story grows from there, and artists and video creators are inspired to create some truly awesome videos to bring the story alive. Glider and Suzunosuke in particular seem to quite like the twins.

            I guess that’s what I like about vocaloid in general, not just Kagamine Rin and Len. The creativity from composers, storytellers, artists, all coming together to make something that feels bigger than all of them. Like that one Google Chrome commercial!

            Here are a few examples of Kagamine Rin and Len’s particular brand of it, though:

            * First there’s Kokoro. Then someone couldn’t leave it there, so we got Len’s answer song, Kokoro Kiseki. Then you’ve got at least two different PV artists who’ve created their own interpretation of both songs…one where the scientist is more of a father figure, and one where he’s more on Rin’s level. Then you’ve got the Kokoro Mix, where some enterprising soul combined them all together with their own PV and added a twist.

            * Mothy (i.e., Akuno-P) has pretty much made his own universe, and it started with the twins’ Story of Evil. You want to be astounded, google “Evillious Chronicles wiki”. Some folks have tried to put together a timeline of Mothy’s songs, and it’s…it’s just amazing.

            And on top of that he’s written a couple of novels based on the main story, and there is at least one non-canon manga… If there’s ever an anime, I’m so there.

            * Synchronicity (a three-song arc) started out as a web novel. Then songwriters wrote three songs, and then artists created some amazing PVs. People waited years for a conclusion, as the first PV/song was posted back in 2009, and the last in late 2012.

            * For one of their birthdays, some Japanese fans made a 10-minute tribute video based on three of Rin and Len’s more famous story arcs. You can find it on Youtube by searching for “3 best tragedy kagamine”. It’s really well-made, and you can feel the love pouring off of it for these songs/characters. The credits alone are just so cute.

            * Check out their cover of Romeo and Cinderella. The producer and PV artist took Miku’s song and give it an entirely different twist. (Note here: they are definitely not twins in this one, so tread carefully if you’ll be bothered by that.)

            3) A few of the stories have managed to hit me right in the gut. It’s been years since i’ve first seen Kokoro or the Kokoro Mix, and watching the PVs can still get me teary.

            And even if some of their songs don’t have quite that much emotional impact, I can count on just about any Rin and Len PV I watch to be entertaining. They have songs ranging from the story of the wolf who fell in love with Little Red Riding Hood, to the little match girl who burned down her father’s house, to a tale of dolls taking revenge against the girl who threw them away. And many more.

            4) When you’ve had enough drama and seriousness, the Kagamine twins can also be plenty silly. Like Gekokujou (Revolution), where they declare war on Miku. Or Remote Control, Death Should Not Have Taken Thee! and just about anything illustrated by Glider. Or just…their obsession with road rollers. Have you seen that “Learn English with Megurine Luka” video?

            5) A good producer can get their voices to blend in really interesting ways in duets, since they’re both created from the same voice. ESPECIALLY if the producers use their appends. As an example: look up Synchronicity 3/3 or Hello Again (append version) on Youtube. Then just close your eyes and listen. (Bonus: put on headphones for Hello Again.)

            For something a bit softer, look for anything by Nata-P. (i.e., Sun, Forest, etc.)

            6) And then you have things that defy description. See: Paradichlorobenzene and Antichlorobenzene. They’re just awesome.

            Whoops…my apologies, that was really long. I don’t get to talk about vocaloid much, either. I hope this helps explain a little of what I see in Rin and Len, though? It’s really interesting to see where different fans are coming from, with such a wide fandom. :-)

            I’ll need to check out some of the songs you listed in your comment…might find a new favorite!

          • Demeanor

            Really, thanks a million for the post, it’s a work of art! ^ ^ Actually, after checking out three of the songs you posted (Deep Sea City Underg, Death should not have taken thee and World Domination, all awesome btw) it started to dawn on me how Rin and Len might have more a role of “performers” in the Vocaloid scene, playing out all sorts of funny or emotional stories as actors, while Miku and Luka are more “classic” divas, and your answer basically “sang an harmonious tune” with the one I came up with. XD Again, I keep finding out new stuff every day!!! At this point I would be very interested to hear your thoughts on Miku as well, how do you see her, which of her many many songs you like the most. Looking forward to experience your latest recommendations. I’m throwing around a few other less known Miku faves of mine in case you’re interested: Paranoia, Natsuiro Canvas, Saturation, Aquarium Sky (the one from Peperon-P).

          • anthy

            And I just saw this reply NOW. I suck and feel like a douchenozzle, sorry – don’t check the Siliconera site a whole lot. I want to reply to you, but need to think about how what I think about Miku and my favorite Miku songs (sasakure.UK and T.Komine-san are definitely up there, though. :-) ) and read your reply more thoroughly, and I’m just taking a break at work. But I’m definitely going to reply!

            Oh, goodness, so sorry about this.

          • Demeanor

            Don’t worry, take all the time you need, it’s not like I’m going to disappear anytime soon anyway XD looking fwd to it.

          • anthy

            OK, Miku! She is super-adorable and does have stuff I really, really like, but I sometimes have trouble finding it, since she’s very popular as (as you said) more of a traditional diva, so she has this huge body of pop tunes to sort through that I’m more hit-and-miss on. (Like, I often like the stuff that Project Diva includes – especially in F and Arcade – but it’s way more hit-and-miss when I click on random stuff.)

            Here’s some of the stuff I like. Warning because…most of the non-PD stuff I like with Miku is pretty weird.

            CAN I DO LINKS. LET’S SEE.

            * Sasakure-UK. He’s a little hit-and-miss for me and not a lot of what he’s done is translated (and you really kind of have to read translations for his stuff), but when he hits with me, he really, really hits. Like, I love Hello Planet (trying a link here, since this PV should not be missed), NegaPosi Continues, and Twee Box Puppet Show. I also quite like The Heap Princess and the Apostrophe, and the Snow Show Song is pretty adorable. Also Patchwork Eden (which shouldn’t be in this list since Gumi, but eh, it’s awesome.)

            * T.Komine / Utata-P’s troll songs. :-) OMG his stuff is great. I stalk this playlist for new stuff, and I also like this Halloween song he and Moca did.

            * I like Wowaka and Hachi, too, but not much to say about either producer since most of the stuff I like is in Project Diva? My faves are World’s End Dancehall; Unhappy Refrain; Two-Faced Lovers; World’s End Umbrella; Hold and Release, Rakshasa and the Corpse, etc. I’d love to see Matroskya in Project Diva, but it won’t happen unless they add Gumi.

            * Mothy / Akuma-P – he’s kind of the uber-story-master, which means he’s done story-based songs for most of the major vocaloids at one time or another. Miku’s big ones are Moonlit Bear and Gift From the Princess Who Brought Sleep. Also Daughter of White (as Haku), and she’s in a bunch of his stories without a singing voice (like, she’s the girl from the Green country that Kaito falls in love with in Servant of Evil, ferinstance).

            * Kikuo! One of the weirdest producers I’ve found, and I’m including T.Komine in that. His stuff tends to have happy, joyful tunes matched with strange, disturbing subject matter. Like: You’re a Useless Child, or Don’t Look at Me In That Way, or Breaking Things Into Pieces, or A Happy Death. (And Chiri Chiri Juusou with IA.) When I found him I just went through video after video and my eyes just kept getting bigger and bigger and…weird but definitely worth checking out. I’d rec most of his stuff, but NOT “I’m Sorry, I’m Sorry” because that one is seriously disturbing in a not-good way.

            …I don’t think any of his stuff’ll ever be in Project Diva. Unless he writes something a bit more conventional?

            * Miku also has an absolute ton of creepypasta. All of the vocaloids do, but Miku more than most, I think because she’s so cute and innocent. You can find a bunch of it on TV Tropes’ Nightmare Fuel page (with links to subbed videos, usually), for all of the vocaloids, not just Miku. I recommend Bad End Night; Circle You, Circle You (i.e., Kagome, Kagome); Wide Knowledge of the Late, Madness; Dark Woods Circus; and lots more. (TV Tropes is a great resource for finding new songs in general; they also have a Tearjerker, Heartwarming, and Awesome category.)

            * And here’s a bunch of random stuff (hopefully linked if I did it right!): 1imb0 (Miku and Luka), Hocus Pocus (Miku and Gumi), Hello, How are you, Reboot (with Luka, Samune Zimi), Eight Hundred, and the Miku and Rin/Len versions of the “Let’s say the P Names” songs, which are vocaloids listing off a ton of producer names at inhuman speeds. (There are also some awesome edit plays being made of these…check hisokeee’s youtube channel for PVs.)

            * …and heck, here’s a couple I’ve been listening to a lot that aren’t with Miku or Rin/Len. Just because: What a Miniature Garden Dreams (with IA) and Straying Rhapsody (Gumi, Lily, Gakupo). Both by Hitoshizuku x Yama, my favorite producers.

            I really like Paranoia and Saturation, BTW. You wouldn’t happen to have an english sub of Saturation, would you? I’d love to know what she’s singing about. :-)

          • Demeanor

            Waaah! As always thanks for the goldmine post! I’ll need some time to “absorb” everything and formulate a coherent reply, but as a sort of thank you I’m going to translate the damn Saturation myself if I can’t find a ready-made one! :D just give me a few days, and I’ll be back to once again use the Siliconera comment section for all the wrong reasons! XD (Can’t we PM somehow? Why in the world is there no one with your knowledge and drive in my everyday life??? XD)
            (edit: btw wow, translating Saturation is no walk in the park! so beautiful though! XD)

          • anthy

            Annnnd, I did it again, geez! Forgot to check Siliconera for replies. My apologies. I have no idea about PMs, sorry…I’d say email, but I suck mightily at checking my email, too. I’m a total flake, internet-wise.

            Don’t worry about the Saturation translation…it’s a cool song as-is, and some songs don’t really need a translation to be enjoyed. Just wondered if you knew of any. :-)

            It is really cool that you know enough Japanese to even attempt a translation, though…wish I could do that. My year of Japanese back in middle school is completely gone, now.

            Did you see the news?? The Happiness and Peace of Mind Committee is going to be in F 2nd! http://www.siliconera.com/2013/09/18/hatsune-miku-project-diva-f-2nd-adds-packaged-a-thousand-year-solo-and-more

            (Also a new Rin (& Miku?) song I hadn’t heard but which sounds pretty cool – and a couple more repeats from past games. I’m most enthused about T.Komine being in the game, though!)

          • Demeanor

            Milady, please direct your eyes a couple of posts above, precisely to the post before the one you answered to, you might notice it’s a few days more recent… :D
            Hope you get back to the thread soon!!!!!!!
            (btw, since you’re a Kagamine fan, do you know Saikyouiku? YT video w/eng sub = kFnYHwdFz4w it’s pretty good imo!)
            (btw part 2, totally random but, do you know I met and shook hands with the Crypton CEO Hiroyuki Itou at Japan Expo 2013 in Paris? I was there (on vacation) for the presentation of the Eng Vocaloid sw announcement, I also have an autograph, it was glorious!!! :D it was like being a part of a moment in Vocaloid history!)

          • anthy

            OMG, I missed that! How did I miss that?? Thank you so much for the translation and for all your hard work!

            …the translation is so very beautiful, wow. I mean “my ever-changing heart, beating faster and faster, would be captured” – that’s lovely. This is why I like to understand the songs. Whole new level of meaning.

            I can’t pull the video up right now (I have completely used up my work break writing this, gotta get back to trying to figure out what this document actually says), but when I get home I am totally printing your translation out and sitting with my tablet in front of the PS3 so I can see the vid on the big screen, and I’m going to read it along with the video. Awesome!

            I just saw your note on the Kagamine song, too – just googled the youtube code real quick-like, and it’s Re-Education! Yeah, I like that one – it’s by Neru, who did Tokyo Teddy Bear, World Domination How-To, and The Lost One’s Weeping. Which are all awesome. I’m not familiar with all of his stuff, though – I keep thinking I should look up more (and I don’t know why I haven’t, actually). Seriously, though, any Neru song they want to include in PD is fine with me.

            Have you heard Jabberwocky Jabberwocka, BTW? I don’t have time to grab the video, but it’s a really fun, nonsensical Kagamine song…that I just found in the last week. (I think every Kagamine fan but me knew about that one.)

            Also, as a Luka fan…have you heard of “Witch”? Ran across it yesterday and thought of you. It’s one of the few story-based songs centered around Luka I’ve seen, besides Mothy’s Tailor song. (Actually sung by 4-5 vocaloids, though, not just Luka.)

            Re: shook hands with the Crypton CEO Hiroyuki Itou at Japan Expo 2013 in Paris: that is so cool! Gosh I’m envious…not only for the shaking hands and the autograph, but for Paris. I’d love to go to Europe. ONE DAY

            Thank you again for the translation. :-)

            Ok, here we go, your very own Saturation translation! Enjoy!

            Foreword: when translating a Voca song I don’t try to make “the English version”, I prefer translating verse per verse to explain the meaning of THAT particular bit, often using more words than the original to convey the meaning more clearly: imho the original is king! Also, I try to avoid adapting the order of verbs/sentences to the English language structure, so some verses might sound “strange” because they follow the very different Japanese sentence construction (plus I’m Italian, so cut me some slack! XD). Lastly, since I have no idea whether you know some japanese or not I’ve chosen to show the romaji you can hear in the song along the translation, without kana and kanji (I hope there are not too many errors, some bits were might cryptic!).

            SATURATION

            Sukoshizutsu karamari kagami ni utsutta
            Getting entangled little by little, reflected by the mirror,

            Kubisuji to sawarerareru kuchibiru ni tada
            the base of my neck and the lips that are allowed to touch it, they simply

            oboreteyuku
            drown in what they keep doing over and over

            Kami wo naderu sono te kasaneru yubisaki
            The fingertips that keep crowding on, from that hand caressing my hair,

            Kasanatta hitomi ni fukaku miserareteku
            they are intensely bewitched by the eyes they keep under their touch

            Sou yatte
            in such a way…

            ーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー
            Dakishimete kureru no nara
            If you were to embrace me

            Utsurou no hayamete kokoro dake ga torawarete
            my ever-changing heart, beating faster and faster, would be captured

            Mou akiramerarenai dakara
            And would forever refuse to give up on you, and that’s why

            Tada soba ni ite kureru
            Your simply being by my side

            Sore dake de ii to zutto omotte ita noni
            Despite me having always thought that that would have been enough to be happy

            Wagamama na kimochi mune sasu yo
            I still feel a stab of selfishness piercing my breast
            ーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー

            Garasu (GLASS) saiku ni sou anata wo mite iru
            I’m looking at you as if you’re a fine work of glass craftsmanship

            Sensai na bijou no toriko ni sareteyuku
            I let myself become a prisoner of a subtle smile

            Te hanasazu ni
            My hands never letting go

            Subete wo jounetsu no iro dake ni somete
            The color of passion has the means to dye everything around us

            Akireta hyoujou wa yamete yo mitsumetete
            So stop making that shocked expression, and look

            Watashi dake
            ONLY at me

            ーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー
            Dakishimete kureru no nara

            Mou akiramerarenai dakara
            And would forever refuse to give up on you, and that’s why

            Chikaku ni ite tokeau you na
            Being close to you, like two matching pieces that at times are separated

            Kankei de itai kore kara mo tsunaideite
            I want to be in a relationship with you, so now and in the future, go ahead and link with me

            Akai ito no futari no you ni
            Like two people bound together by a red thread
            ーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー

            Tomedo nai hikari no ame
            An endless rain of light

            Shiawase na jikan wa hayai tokei no you ni
            My moments of greatest happiness (with you) are like a broken clock, whose hands go faster than they should

            Sugisarutte iku keredo motto
            Although I spent this time with you, ever more and more

            Mitashitai, mitasaretai
            I want to fulfill, I want to be fulfilled

            Amai shunkan dake ga mune no fuan wo keshite kureru kara
            Since only in those sweetest of moments the anxiety in my heart completely vanishes,

            Daiji ni shitai
            I wish to make this something extremely important to me

            ーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー

    Dammit, I misread the article title thinking it would be coming to the US on PS Vita in Spring 14, less than a year after the PS3 version would be out.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Nice. I wonder if they’ll release simultaneously or if they’ll stagger it like last time?

    Staggering it allowed them to get a good chunk of sales on Vita and then an even better amount on PS3, but I wonder if people wouldn’t just pick one or the other if they launch the same day? I don’t know if these were global stats or just for the US, but I remember Tretton sharing that some crazy percentage of Vita owners also had PS3s, so I’d imagine that’d impact how this performs across both platforms if it launches on the same day.

  • EdzoIV

    wow this got me more excited than it should have haha

  • animaster

    Exact release date: Spring 2014 –> March 9th, 2014

  • Light Soul

    If there isn’t any plans for a localization then I’ll be importing this. I hope the first one does well so this can get localized.

  • http://so-very.me/ Jenny

    is that the US version date or the Japanese date?
