It’s official—PlayStation 3 rhythm game Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F is headed to the U.S. and Europe, and you’ll even get to try the game out before its release.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F will be available as both a retail packaged game as well as a download title in the U.S., and as a download-only game in Europe. Like the Japanese version, it will include all of the updated graphics, additional songs and features that were added over the original PlayStation Vita release.
That’s 38 songs, including ones like “Tell Your World” and “Black★Rock Shooter”. You can also create and share your own Miku videos in the game’s Edit Mode, and customize Miku and co. with over 90 costumes and 100 accessories.
You’ll be able to try a demo of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F on June 11th in the U.S. and June 12th in Europe via the PlayStation Network. The full game’s release will follow two months later.
The news comes a few months following Sega’s Facebook push for the game, where they attempted to gauge overseas interest in the title and encouraged fans to spread the word.
“Your voices helped make this happen.” said Aaron Webber, Associate Brand Manager for the game. “Miku and SEGA fans, this is your moment. We’re thrilled to bring this title out for you, and we’re counting on your support. Tell Your World! ”
We’ve covered Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F in great detail, so if you’d like to learn more about the different songs and features in the game, look through its tag.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F will be available this August in the U.S and Europe.
GameStop is offering an exclusive pre-order bonus for rhythm game Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F. Pre-ordering the game from them will allow you to avail a Snow Miku 2013 costume and a custom PlayStation 3 theme with ten backgrounds.
Additionally, GameStop also appears to have leaked the game’s release date—August 27th. Sega hasn’t made an official announcement yet, but it appears that the publisher mentioned the date on their Facebook page, then subsequently took the news down.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F is out today and the game’s latest trailer shows off a few songs from the total selection of 38, as well as the game’s Edit Mode, which lets you create your own music videos using the songs and characters available.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F is available at retail and via PlayStation Network in North America, and as a download title via PSN in Europe.
For those wondering: It's exactly the same as the Japanese version, except with translated menus. Nothing was added or removed. Meaning there is no reason for you to buy it if you already have the Japanese version, like me.
