Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd is coming to the west, Sega have announced. The game will be released this fall, for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

 

The game will contain 40 songs—36 of which can be seen in this video—as well as the return of Edit mode, which lets you create and share videos.

 

Additionally, Sega have confirmed that the game will be released at retail for both PS3 and Vita. More news on the game will be shared at E3 this year.

    And we didn’t even have to harass them at every turn to get it! Is this the start of a more Western market friendly Sega?

    …probably not, but still this is pretty awesome. Day one Vita for sure.

    • fireguardiancoty

      No one should have to do that

  • Six

    BASED SEGA OMG I CANT EVEN ALL OF MY MONIES!!!!!!

    I am excite. Day one for both PS3 and Vita.

  • Herok♞

    This is great news I bought the PS3 version of the first one, but I much rather have it on my Vita so this is beyond great news.

  • Josué

    Awesome.

  • mingledorff

    Got the first one on both Vita and PS3 Day 1. So Happy they are bringing over the second one as I’ve been seriously considering importing it if they didn’t. I don’t know what happened to SEGA recently but man, I love it.

  • LM009

    where is mirai? i can import pdf2nd but 3 ds is region locked grr

    • pantsonadog

      Exactly. I wish Sega would do something right for once…

      • xzeldax3

        Complainers everywhere.

    • http://www.segalization.com/ Kuronoa

      Hope it is next one.

  • Grape Monet

    Does this mean the first game was a success in the West?

    • Six

      The press release on Sega’s blog definitely makes it sound that way. Given how little there was to localize, I doubt it took that much to make a profit.

      • xzeldax3

        I think the main thing is music licensing, because we all know how crazy that is (especially when licensing out of the country of origin).

  • Boku

    “the game will be released at retail for both PS3 and Vita.”
    In which region(s), Sega? Don’t do this to me again.

    I just got my delivery confirmation that the JP versions are on their way but by god I’ll buy them again down the line to support this. Just dont make me have to import from the US again.

  • Jesse

    Well, that was quick. Guess bringing the first one over was worth it. ^^

  • Land of Green Pasture

    I hope it’s only 30 for vita like her predecessor

    • nonscpo

      We can hope!

  • Masa

    Ew, more of this crap.
    Where is Yakuza?

    • Six

      And the announcement wouldn’t be complete without bitter Yakuza fans.

      • Nanaki

        Masa tends to be bitter given the opportunity, don’t mind her. She means well.

    • megaten666

      I actually understand you, since I love Yakuza. Still, I like Miku games too, so…
      *sigh*
      SEGA! Couldn’t you just make both of us happy? :/

    • Freakmasta

      WHERE’S PSO2?!

      • Crimson_Cloud

        Good question. I was patiently waiting but… it’s too quiet.

      • http://hanzoadam.tumblr.com/ Hanzoadam

        I totally agree, I’ve been waiting what seems like forever

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      Sega: We are the Yakuza………………………. of Miku

    • Brandonmkii

      Yeah, how dare they localize things that will actually make them money!

    • Arcana Drill

      Yeah a game which doesnt requires many effort in the translation (mainly just menus and other stuff) totally is the reason that yakuza series arent coming here, maybe isnt the fact that Yakuza series didnt sell to justify the localization costs,so yeah lets just hate this game!

    • Keiji Johnson

      Actually, there’s a rumor going on that Atlus would be localizing Yakuza 5 instead of Sega.

  • Nanaki

    Just….

    • CrimsonDX

      This sums up my reaction perfectly

    • http://vindictushots.tumblr.com/ Okuni-chan

      I couldn’t have said it any better!!

    • Suki

      I know right! I almost want to cry being so happy! I already pre-ordered the Japanese Version but Sega is going to get my money two more times! I’m super excited!

  • Kai2591

    lol and I just bought the previous one last week :)

    • Nanaki

      So you are the reason why they’re releasing this one!! Thank you!!!!

      • Kai2591

        haha you’re welcome ;)

  • Nas

    Awesome to see both getting released at the same time.

  • Muddied_Waters

    Getting the dd version today whenever it’s up on the store and will buy hard copies for both the ps3 and vita when it comes out here in the west. Take my money.

  • Quizler

    IT’S HAPPENING!!

  • Derry Santoso

    Hell Yeeeeeeeaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!

  • Firion Hope

    YEAH!

  • Kotori Itsuka

    I cannot describe my feelings right now….It’s kinda like this: HOLYMOTHEROFUNICORNRAINBOWCOOKIESWITHMILK!!!!

    • Milewide

      Sounds awesome!

      Except for those with lactose intolerance.

      • Kotori Itsuka

        at least I didn’t put in a lot of swearing…I know too many of those f*cking thin-goddammit

  • Firion Hope

    Well that was fast, yay!

  • Sangaz

    Brilliant, no need to import. I f*cking love this series.

  • Pandakids09 .

    This is amazing since Diva f just out over like 2 weeks ago and Diva f 2nd just came out in Japan a couple of days ago. Hoping this get a limited edition for the Vita and ps3

  • Roberto

    if i buy this will sega localization Go! Go! 575

    • Renaldi Saputra

      that game was new and even wasn’t successful in Japan
      meanwhile Miku had big fanbase on the west since years ago
      I doubt

  • Raze

    This is suprising

    But I already ordered the Japanese one…

    And I don’t really feel any difficulty to understand the menu and all except edit mode which I am sure I will not use lol…

    Good move Sega…
    Hope more good news come from them

    • pantsonadog

      That happened to me with the first Diva F. This time I was like “I’m going to wait a couple months to see if they localize this one.” They announced it waayy more fast than I thought they would though.

  • Demeanor

    Awesome news for non-importers and double-triple-quadruple dippers alike!
    As for me, like hell I’m waiting until Fall! XD
    Still 2 days plus courier time, c’mooooon!!! :D (ps3 version because dem 3D PVs)

  • Altritter

    Just bought the Vita version and I’m having a blast, so this is welcome news.

  • xAtKx

    Vita version imported and coming in a few days, will still pick up the PS3 version in the fall or both most likely.

  • pridesin

    Man, my import copy for vita just shipped yesterday.

    Well, I guess that I will get the U.S copy for PS3.

    • Naryoril

      to be honest: it doesn’t really matter, does it? I mean, there is no story or character dialog at all, it’s just the menus and maybe some song titles.

      • pridesin

        I want to support the U.S localization as much as possible, but do not want to buy same game again on same device.

  • MikelAL93

    Hell yes! I loved Project Diva F, and I hope the game gets a physical release as well.

    Here’s hoping I’ll pre-order my copy this time unlike last time (Though I was lucky enough to score a physical copy of the game)

  • nonscpo

    It was nice of them to anounce the localization, would have been nicer to let us know that we were getting a physical release…just saying.

    • Risingrose

      We are. They announced physical release for Vita and PS3 on Sega’s blog.

      • nonscpo

        Really wow thanks now we just need the date and well all be set :)

  • Anewme…Again

    Awesome, i can’t wait.

  • Tinye

    I’m so stoked on this! Can’t wait!

  • NeptuniasBeard

    Good stuff Sega! Loved the first one. Now about that 3DS game…

  • Michael Richardson

    Vita is hitting it out of the park this year with all of these localizations!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    CONGRATS Vocaloid fans!

    now shhhh….we wait

    • alixraen

      Miku! P-please put some clothes on! ((((;゜Д゜)))

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        lol

  • Testsubject909

    And everybody rejoiced.

    Come to me my retail version! Together, we shall rule over all Vocaloids and tickle them in private! Wait… no, no, that’s what I meant.

  • Zalin

    I don’t see why this comes as a surprise. Sega announced that project dive 2 would come out in fall of this year back before the first game came out on the ps3.

  • Crimson_Cloud

    Awesome, I was actually thinking of importing it as I couldn’t wait, but it’s gonna be sooner then expected. :)

  • Arcana Drill

    Yes, moar Luka sexyness in my life!

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    Very nice =)

  • CozyAndWarm

    Dang it Sega, where is Project Mirai 2

  • fireemblembeast

    Yay I knew they wouldn’t disappoint us!! :D
    I can’t wait to play Luka Luka Night Fever over and over and over

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Name your date SEGA and my money is yours. ^_^

  • Rose Spinoza

    Yay! Hope there’s more non-Miku songs this time around, but I’m still happy. It’s a fun game!

  • Yan Zhao

    My vita’s game library can finally expand, haha.

  • Aristides

    And just when all my hope in SEGA was about to vanish they go and do this :P I’m glad when they give me a reason to be a SEGA fanboy again =D

  • SirRichard

    Will it be released at retail in Europe as well this time, or digital only again? Still going to support it, like, but I’d like it in a box.

    • The_Superior_Spider-Mon

      Yes they confirmed. It will have a physical release in EU. (Hopefully with a manual)

      • SirRichard

        That’s awesome news, now just to decide which platform I want it on.

      • Brandonmkii

        What would you need a manual for? There really isn’t anything that needs explaining that isn’t explained in-game.

  • Andrew A

    I knew I shouldn’t have imported this…

  • artemisthemp

    Looks like I will be playing with Hatsune Miku Project Diva F 2nd this fall :)

  • Daniel Williams

    glad that the vita version is coming out at the same time.

  • SupaPhly

    ohh nice!
    but I still want yakuza 5 ;_;
    sega pls

  • Blesmi

    Nice for those who dont import. I on the other hand will be enjoying it come friday.

  • RagnoSaki

    This is great news. :3

  • TheSegaMan

    No point in importing the Japanese version now :3. So happy!

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    Awesome, I’m glad Sega are giving HM a chance in the West~.

  • https://twitter.com/BinksFrost Binks5

    Fantastic

  • buddyluv324

    Nice! Glad I held off importing!

  • http://greatscott84.tumblr.com/ GreatScott84

    Both Neptunia AND Miku? I’m soooo glad I held out on importing!

  • Kayriss Wins

    Yup It’s a thing now, cultural differences (specifically Idol games being niche here in the states) won’t stop this idol’s rampage around the world GO MIKU!!!

  • konsama

    Just wow, awesome news today, and im just getting the first one this week Dx.

  • cyberkinghardy

    My previous game is japanese so it’s only natural to buy the 2nd one in japanese..cause I can’t import save if they’re different :))))

  • Arrngrim

    Still excited and cannot WAIT for my JP copies to arrive via EMS! (~.~)/ I’m gonna Miku Miku the heck out of my Project Diva f HORI controller!

  • Ricardo C

    I wasn’t expecting this to happen so soon but sure, name your date and tell us when the demo comes out Sega

  • Ric Vazquez

    A retail version of mah waifu’s game is finally coming to the west, freaking hypetrain crushing everything in it’s way XD.

  • Wesley Kenneth Houpt Mattingly

    Awesome news, now give us a sale on the PS3 and Vita versions of 1 :)

  • Nexus

    Great news! That’s another rhythm game that I’ll be playing obsessively on my Vita.

    Now, about IA/VT Colorful…

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/findlay27 Hawk Ward

    > Paid for the JP ver today
    > See’s news… well shit…
    Still going to get this one since it’s physical release for Europe too! (I hope)

  • TheLastBattalion

    Hahahahaha!
    YES! ^_^

  • Loli Summoner

    Thanks sega! Vayn-san is very happy, here, have a cute miku.

  • H-Lo

    YES!!!!!
    Just YES!!!!

  • Naryoril

    I hope they have a feature to adjust video lag by comparing your button presses with the time when you should, like every other rhythm game. On the first one you had to set numbers manually, and even after trying a dozen settings i never felt like i really got it right.

    If they don’t, i guess i’ll have to resort to the Vita version, but i’d really prefer the PS3 version because of the better sound (headphones vs home cinema set)

  • http://hanzoadam.tumblr.com/ Hanzoadam

    I’m so glad I didn’t import it, as I imported the last one and it got localized =?

  • NANAandLIZZYfanatic

    Thanks Sega, now can we please have Yakuza 5 and/or Yakuza Restoration?

  • Bani Muhamad Iyad

    Will this game be on English Language?

  • LDM

    I cannot find any copies of the first one in any stores and the prices are inflated in online stores. I hope this one doesn’t become rare.

  • Clifford Michael

    Well I guess I’m double-dipping on THIS one too… My preorder is shipping… T_T

  • http://so-very.me/ Jenny

    I was so happy that I kinda cried tears of absolute joy xD Call me lame but this is friggin awesome!

  • CirnoLakes

    Hehehe, thank you SEGA! Keep localizing games!

  • Landale

    Gifs aren’t actually allowed on this site. Just a heads up.

  • Esura

    This is my reaction. Holy crap that announcement was fast! Upvote for being a Neptune fan too.

  • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

    No GIFs, guys. They slow the comments section down for everybody.

  • Malon

    Today’s a great day for niche games fans.

  • Xerain

    Not fast enough for people with preorders.

    That being said, have the announced if the edit data regions will be combined? It they’re still separate, there is good reason to buy the JP version as obviously the JP region has many many more dedicated players making edit data. Also preorder tote bag, yay.

    Excel.

    Sorry, I just had to.

  • Kornelious

    Its Accell……I think

  • Testara

    I just wanted to say, yeah, I had it preordered, and then as they’re shipping it from Japan, “Hey, we’re releasing this in the west now”.

  • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

    It’s a couple things. One is that they slow things down and they other is that people begin to misuse them after a while and post stupid memes over and over.
