Sam Mullen, the North American Localization Producer for the Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA series took to the NA PlayStation Blog to explain a lift about the DLC for the western release of the title, which is set for release in NA on the 18th November and the 21st in EU.
For those of you who don’t know Hatsune Miku yet, she is the world’s most popular virtual singer and our Project DIVA rhythm game series lets you play along with her most iconic music on your PS3 and PS Vita. The game also offers a variety of game modes and customization options, because with Hatsune Miku it’s all about creativity, user-created content and great music.
If any of you out there are keeping tabs on Japan, you may be aware that they are having regular releases of post-launch downloadable content for the Japanese version of the game. I am happy to announce that we are going to be offering the same downloadable content to our Western fans. Yes, all the content that Japan has been getting, such as new costume modules like Rin and Len’s Alparkas and new rhythm game songs like Look This Way, Baby?, Aikotoba, and Sekiranum Graffiti – you’re all going to get that, too! We will be releasing content every two weeks or so for nearly six months straight!
The title will offer three types of DLC, which are:
- UI Skins: free for the first 39 days after release
- Costume Modules: $1.99/€1.49/£1.19 each
- Rhythm Game Songs: $2.99/€2.49/£1.99 each
SEGA have also announced two sales offers, the Song Club and Costume Club, delivering an deal for six months of costume, skin and song content following the game’s launch. Fans who purchase the Song Club – $29.99/€ 24.99/£ 19.99 – will receive every single Rhythm Game Song published in the upcoming months, well over ten songs in total, while the Costume Club – $69.99/€ 49.99/£ 39.99 – will feature more than 45 costumes (modules). The Costume Club and Song Club offer more than 25% savings for fans who want to own every piece of upcoming content.
Are you looking forward to the game? Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA™ F 2nd is the sequel to the ultimate rhythm game featuring the world’s most popular virtual singer, with twenty classic songs from the previously Japan-only PSP games making their first debut in the West, and twenty brand new songs to the Project DIVA series. In addition to the new songs, the game will feature updated gameplay mechanics and controls, more than 80 brand new and remade fan favorite modules, Cross-Save compatibility, Markerless AR Mode (PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system) and a revamped edit mode ranking system that showcases the most popular user generated content
