If you’ve been on the fence about grabbing a copy of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd, now is the time to hop over and get those rhythm fingers tapping. A series of price drops for the physical version of the game have gone into effect starting today, although the changes seem to be incomplete.
Here are the price changes in effect so far:
North America: PS3 version now $29.99, Vita version now $29.99. (Updated) United Kingdom: PS3 version now £29.99, Vita version now £24.99. Europe: No price change yet (may change).
Please note these prices apply only to physical copies, and not the PlayStation Network prices, although the PSN prices may change. The other unchanged prices noted above can also still change at any time in the future, so keep an eye out. We’ll update this article if there’s any recent changes.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd can be found from most major game retailers.
Type 2020 Module DLC for Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd
The first wave of DLC of 2015 for Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd will be rolled out later this week, and includes new songs, skins and modules. On the song side of things, HD remakes of Sekiranun Graffiti by ryo and Ai Kotoba by DECO*27 are now available, as well as their accompanying modules: Type 2020 and Shiny.
5 free gameplay skins have also been made available, although they will only remain available free for the first 39 days of release, so grab them while you can!
Lastly, the remaining modules in this DLC release are “School Girl Club” for Akita Neru, “Gothic Purple” for Yowane Haku, “M.S.J” for Kasane Teto, and “Nostalgia” for Sakine Meiko. All Costume Modules are available individually or School Girl Club, Gothic Purple, M.S.J, and Nostalgia can be purchased as a bundle. And yes, the DLC supports the “cross-buy” feature, so it will work on both your PS3 and Vita copies of the game with just a single purchase.
If you’re a hardcore fan that plans to buy all song and module DLC in the long run, SEGA also offers “Costume Club” and “Song Club” DLC packs, which will save you over 25% versus buying them all individually.

Earlier today, the popular Japanese gaming news and review site Game*Spark published their finalized list for the Top 20 most valuable Japanese games released overseas in 2014. We can see that Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f for PS Vita ranked #16, and Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd for Vita/PS3 ranked #17 on the list.
This top 20 list was produced by following these rules:
• The game must have launched in North America in 2014, regardless of the Japan launch date.
• HD Remakes and DLC bundles excluded.
• Scores on metacritic.com (games with less than 10 reviews excluded).
• Multi-platform titles will have their scores averaged.
Given the sheer number of Japanese game titles that make their way overseas every year, it’s great to see the Project Diva franchise is fairing quite well with overseas gamers and reviewers. Congratulations to the SEGA of America and Japan staff!
