Sega Shipped Over 2.5 Million Hatsune Miku Games In Japan

miku5thWhile Sega doesn’t own Hatsune Miku (Crypton Future Media does), the Hatsune Miku series has been a huge hit for the video game publisher. It’s been five years since Sega started releasing Hatsune Miku games with Hatsune Miku: Project Diva for PSP. The most recent game, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd, came out on March 27 in Japan.

 

Altogether, Sega shipped 2.5 million Hatsune Miku games in Japan alone. This figure includes retail and downloadable versions of seven games – Hatsune Miku: Project Diva for PSP, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva 2nd for PSP, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Extend for PSP, Project Miku and Future Stars Project Mirai for Nintendo 3DS, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F for PlayStation Vita, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F for PS3, Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai 2 for Nintendo 3DS, and Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd for PS3/Vita.

 

Sega has Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd scheduled to come out as a retail and digital release in North America and Europe later this year.

    Didn’t enjoy F 2nd as much as I did some of the previous games, but I’m still going to pick up a copy of the Vita version when it releases in the US. Hell, I’ll just keep buying any future Project Diva games they plan on making (if they plan on making more).

    Right now, I’d really like to see a Project mirai 3, though. I hope Sega continues those spin-offs.

      They probably should have went all out with new songs and new features. Oh well. Maybe next game.

      • Muddied_Waters

        Yeah, having half of the songs being repeats from other games was kinda meh. At least coming up with new PVs for them would’ve been something.

    So that’s an average of 350k per game. Considering the latest games haven’t sold that much, it means the older PSP games must have kept on selling for quite a long time.

    • I see like this 。゚+.ღ(ゝ◡ ⚈᷀᷁ღ)

        Out of curiosity, where did you see this? I suspect you might be getting these sales figures confused with Japan. There’s absolutely no way PDF sold anywhere close that figure in the west.

    Sega, please port to PS4 Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone with 50 songs. I am ok even if all 50 songs will be old, cuz there is no physical copy of Dreamy Theatre version.

    • Harvey Tejada Loto

  • Aristides

    2.5m isn’t a whole lot but if they think so then I’m happy for their success. We need more PD games, I’m glad they finally decided to branch out to the west :3

  • Arrngrim

    Regardless, Miku is growing in popularity in the rest of the world so sales will only increase with each game ;)

  • Firion Hope

    I love the characters and liked the demo but these games are 3 hard 5 me. I’m glad they’re selling well though.

  • Darkwing7

    I need that project diva f 2nd for my vita (sadly i cannot beat 2 songs on extreme for the 1st one to plat the game)

  • awang0718

    This means each game has sold an average of about 360,000 copies. Not bad, but nothing amazing.
