Thanks to the success of the PS3 release and requests for a Vita version, Sega has decided to bring Project Diva F for Vita to the west.
The virtual pop star goes portable in an upcoming Vita version for Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F. Released for PS3 late August, the game had both a PS3 and Vita version in Japan. Due to high demand, Sega has decided to bring over the Vita version early next year.
Aaron Webber, associate brand manager for Sega of America, wrote in a PlayStation blog post today, ” ‘We want the Vita version!’ you told us. ‘Please, I’d sell my soul for a Vita version!’ ” A few commenters on the post offered to give their souls to Sega for the news.
Miku is a singing synthesizer application with a persona. Depicted as a 16-year-old idol, the synthesizer technology is used for various songs created by many people, but she is meant to sing mostly pop, dance, and techno music. Other Vocaloid characters such as Kagamine Rin and Len, and Megurine Luka, Kaito, and Meiko also appear in Project Diva F.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F will be a digital-only release, but Sega is aware that many fans are asking for a physical release. A fairly standard rhythm game, players listen to songs sung by Miku and press corresponding buttons at the right time to score points.
Webber’s post indicates that there is still some more news about the Vita title to be released in the future.
