    Nice, looks like that poll managed to turn a few heads within Sega. I'm hoping that they release the vita version too if this campaign is successful.

    Honestly? I'd say that the interest was enough to spike this, but I still don't think we'll see Miku as a racer.

    I really enjoy vocaloid music videos/songs along with rhythm games like DDR, so I definitely plan to buy it. I'd import it but the game's going for $100+ to import which I simply can't justify paying, nor can my friends who are also fans of vocaloids. I'll gladly pay $20-$40 for the localized version if/when it's released though.

    I only have one problem with this. I don't want it on PS3, I want it on a system I own. like the 360, wii, PSP, or 3ds

    There's several PSP titles, but I highly doubt we'll see them localized because PSP support is almost nonexistent outside of Japan. There's also a 3DS title in the series that's only a year old, so there's a good chance we'll see it if Project Diva F gets the support the series needs.

    Here's the trailer for the 3DS game, Project Mirai. Same gameplay as the vita/PS3 games but in nendroid style:

    During this trip to Japan I've played Project Diva a few times now. It's a really fun rhytm action game. Fuck yeah I'd buy it. I may be tempted to grab a copy while I'm out here if I can spare it.

    Hmm... So this campaign was all for one specific video game title. I can't help get the feeling that most of the people who voted for it were uninformed and expecting an American or English version of the Hatsune Miku Vocaloid program. One that could be used to make her sing English songs much easier.

    Work. Amazing isn't it?
    They did a campaign for that a while ago, and it succeeded, but I haven't heard any details about it actually being released. Last news I heard about it, they gave us some sample recordings of her singing in English and she still had an incredibly thick Japanese accent.

    I take it that is an announcement for Japan only at the moment.

    Either way, good to know but not at all surprising. In Japan they are going to ride that train as long as people are still eating it up like mad. Project Diva is popular to insane amounts.

    I'm a bit late to hear the news, but still pretty excited that Project Diva F is seeing a US release. When I get a PS3, I'd totally buy this, especially if it comes in physical copies too, but I can live with digital if that's the only option. Anything beats trying to import it. ($70+ DO NOT WANT.)

    And I want to hope the sequel gets an international release too, but I wouldn't be surprised if what Aesculapius Piranha said turns out to be true. It doesn't seem like they need to release the game in other regions for other said regions to snap up as many Japanese copies that exist.

    I think Crypton is working on that, but not much else has passed by me yet. Although her new voicebank would have to be pretty solid for English; hearing her sing fully in English now, beyond a few words here and there, is kinda strange. I heard Po Pi Po was supposed to have a set of English verses, and I can't even tell them from the Japanese ones, if it is there.

    Looks like it's just a digital release in Australia, can anyone else confirm? I might import a localized hard copy if this is the case.

    While this has little to do with the game, let's have a little fun trying to force a marketing campaign out of Sega. :ruby:
