Now that Sega has set a confirmed release date for Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F (PS3), it’s time to kick-start the hype machine.
And there’s no better way to do that than by giving fans something to look at: here’s an over-two-minute-long “store display promo” trailer that Sega just streamed on the Web today.
If you live in Japan, expect to run into this shiny new trailer at all good video game stores across the land of the rising sun shortly.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F for the PlayStation 3 is a port of the PS Vita rhythm game that adds six new songs (two of which have been revealed to be Tell Your World and Sweet Devil), 13 new modules (on top of the existing 82 costumes in the PS Vita version) for a total of 38 songs and 95 costumes.
Of the 13 new costumes, Sega has only unveiled two so far – matching modules for Tell Your World and Sweet Devil respectively. Apart from these two, however, Sega has also been teasing fans with a silhouette of one of the new modules, which looks remarkably like the costume Hatsune Miku is wearing in the following Senbonzakura PV:
There’s a high chance that Senbonzakura could be one of the six songs to be introduced in the PS3 version of Project Diva F if the silhouetted module is indeed from the above PV, but given that there are more new modules than songs this time around, we can’t be certain.
I will say, however, that the Project Diva team would be incredibly silly not to include it; since Project Diva f’s launch back in late August, the list of downloadable fan-made “Edit Data” has consistently been flooded with Senbonzakura entries.
Outside of new songs and costumes, Sega has also made several other in-game adjustments due to the platform shift.
For instance, in lieu of sliding your finger across the Vita’s touchscreen to “scratch” away at star-shaped notes, you’ll flick the PS3 Dual Shock controller’s analog sticks instead.
There will also be at least one new mode added to the PS3 version: a “Live Studio” mode where you can freely view Hatsune Miku’s (or any of the other Vocaloid modules’) from any angle.
Hatsune Miku Project Diva F for the PlayStation 3 is slated for release in Japan March 7, 2013.
