Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd will feature English lyric translations for the majority of its 40-song track list when it launches for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita in North America and Europe this fall, Sega announced.
The English translations will be shown off for the first time at the Sega booth at Anime Expo in Los Angeles, which kicks off today and runs through the weekend.
“We are proud to finally announce this herculean translation project to bring Hatsune Miku fans English lyric translations,” said Sega of America president and COO John Cheng. “We worked closely with our partners in Japan and the artists to ensure that the lyrical intent of the original Japanese is maintained so our non-Japanese speaking fans can better understand the meaning and context of the amazing world of Hatsune Miku.”
When Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd launches, it will feature 20 classic songs from the previously-released Japan-only PSP games,as well as 20 brand new songs, updated gameplay mechanics and controls, over 80 new and remade modules, cross-save compatibility, a marker-less AR Mode on PS Vita, a revamped edit mode ranking system, and more.
