To be honest, I never thought this day would come. The incredibly popular CG/2D group has had a couple of games released in the past, but none of them have made it over to the West. That’s looking to change today as Sega has officially announced that the Playstation 3 game that was recently released in Japan will be getting an English localization later this year.
“It’s very rare that we’re able to answer the overwhelming support and demand for a game like Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F,” said John Cheng, President and COO, SEGA of America. “And we’re excited to be able to deliver this creative and unique experience for the western audience to enjoy.”
For me, this is great because I was thinking of importing Diva F if Sega wasn’t going to announce it during E3. I thought there would be an incredibly slim chance considering the fan base here in North America is significantly less than its Japanese counterpart, but since there’s nearly one million fans on Facebook who speak English, Sega saw a good opportunity to bring this music rhythm game to even more people. Hatsune Miku Project Diva F will be out on the Playstation 3 and Playstation Network this August, with a demo available on July 11.
