Hatsune Miku is on fire over there in Japan, with her latest cameos and now a new teaser site for a new game. All we know is that the game is set to be revealed in 3 days via Famitsu, which usually leaks information earlier than publishers intend to.
It’s not just for Project Diva though, Round 1 is an AWESOME arcade. It’s a Japanese owned arcade franchise and it only has two arcades so far. Both in So Cal. They got Karaoke, Bowling, those Japanese photo booths, sit down fighting cabinets, tons of UFO catchers and most important, the newest video arcade games. This includes pretty much every light gun and racer game Sega’s made in the past ten years. It’s great for import Japanese games as well. From Initial D, Namco’s Mario Kart Arcade, Taiko Drum Master to many rhythm games including of course, Project Diva. Think Dave and Busters with a very Japanese flavor but with just some cafeteria food instead of a full restaurant.
To be honest I’ve spent a long time now somewhat ignoring the Project Diva series, as it’s never had a release in the West coupled with my only passing interest in rhythm games it has remained on the peripheries of my gaming radar. However I have to say I felt a bit of a tingle while watching this latest trailer for Project DIVA f for the PS Vita.
Somewhere between the Phantasy Star Online 2 cameo and a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it glimpse of what looks like a modified Dreamcast controller this trailer managed to capture my attention. If Sega was to ever take a risk with bringing Project DIVA West it should be with a game like this. Perhaps a digital release? What do you think?
Sony announced at E3 earlier today that they will be releasing a white Playstation Vita bundle with Assassins Creed 3: Liberation. In Japan the bundle for the “crystal white” Vita comes with Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f instead of the US Assassins Creed 3: Liberation bundle. Unlike the US, in Japan there will also be a stand alone unit, for those that don’t enjoy rhythm type games.
The Hatsune Miku Vita bundle is limited edition package that includes specially designed Hatsune Miku Playstation Vita, a copy of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f, a 4GB memory card, screen protector, and lastly a AR card.
Famitsu has listed Project Diva 2.5 as the new Hatsune Miku game, available for PSP. No other details have been given, but be sure to keep an eye on SEGAbits to get the latest news. SEGA is set to officially announce the game on their website here.
Sega Japan has released a new trailer for (Hatsune Miku) Project Diva 2, the trailer is 100% CGI and it’s beautifully made.
Project Diva 2 is the PSP sequel to the popular 2009 music game Project Diva featuring everyone’s favourite Vocaloid, Hatsune Miku. Apparently there is also an Arcade version called ‘Project Diva Arcade’ and a PS3 adaptation on the way too.
As for the trailer, I wonder if Sega’s very own VE Studios could be involved. Those guys that made the 2008 short film ‘Night of the Werehog’ staring Sonic. They are clearly very talented. This looks like their work!
