Following an extremely positive reception of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F for both the PS3 and PS Vita in the U.S., SEGA of America have announced that the game's sequel, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd, will be heading stateside this fall.
Bringing the Vocaloid-powered rhythm series to North America was quite a gamble for SEGA in the first place, but it's a gamble that seems to have paid off in a big way for both the company and the series' fans. Aside from the sequel itself, which will come packed with a total of 40 songs, SEGA of America have also revealed that in response to fan demand, both versions of Project Diva F 2nd will be getting a packaged, physical release. This is notable because only the PS3 version of the original game saw a physical release in the U.S., while the Vita version - just released earlier this month - was a digital-only release.
Project Diva F 2nd's 40 songs will include many of the newest Vocaloid tunes as well as some much-loved classic songs that have previously only been available in Japan. Each song will again have four selectable difficulty levels, and the rhythm gameplay itself is similar to but slightly improved over the original game's. The Edit Mode feature, which allows you to create your own videos and note charts for the game's songs, is also returning with several improvements in the sequel.
The company is also promising that they have some more "fun stuff" in the works for Project Diva F 2nd's stateside release, and that fans can expect to find out more as E3 approaches. We will of course bring you those developments when they hit, and for now, you can check out the game's North American announcement trailer right here!
