The lights are on
Sega brought Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F to the PlayStation 3 earlier this year, and after fan outcry, has decided to bring the Vita version to North America, as well.
The Hatsune Miku: Project Diva series follows the singing escapades of a popular Japanese virtual pop-star with a synthetic voice. The series has been around since 2009 in Japan, but has only recently made its way to our shores.
You can check out the Vita version of the game's announcement trailer below, which offers a good taste of how the game plays. It requires a lot more button pressing than your average rhythm game.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F should be available early next year for the Vita.

I actually imported the Vita version nearly a year ago. Although, I'm tempted to get this one as well so I can learn what all the other features are, not knowing Japanese and all...
Omg lol I have the imported vita version and the localized ps3 version. I don't think I should buy this again lol. I need the psp ones!
I loved the PS3 game and I'm definitely going to double dip and get the portable one. I hope we are going to get the sequel when it comes out.
More Miku? Hooray!
Loved the demo for the PS3 game. Don't have a Vita, so I will just pick up the PS3 version at some point. Still, it's great to see this gaining some popularity in the US.
more miku!!! woohoo!
That is good to hear. I like having rhythm games on the go and didn't manage to snag F when it first came out. Played the demo a ton, though.
I love these games. F was awesome, and the older imports are just as great. So this is merely added incentive for me to get a Vita. Well, this and Project Diva: Dreamy Theater. Now if they would just announce F2 for American shores... Or even better, add all the old songs from the older games as DLC for F, and a few of the other Vocaloids... I know the chances for Gakupo and IA, for example, are almost zero, but hey, a fan can dream, can't she? I'd love to see what "Galaxias" and "The Madness of Duke Venomania" would look like on a Project Diva game!
I was dispirited as well when they announced it for the PS3, but not the VITA, but so glad they listened and bringing it now!
It's been a solid 2013 of fan outcry bringing out positive influences to gaming changes. (Though some would argue negative): it doesn't negate the point that public opinion matters, even as companies perceive they don't. (Capcom I now point the finger at you: bring back Mega-man, preferably in style).
This is awesome news for people who didn't already import the Japanese Vita version like I did.
OMFG!!! That game looks way too hard for me lol:) I'm pretty sure my scores would suck
