The product price is set at 16,800 Yen (or only 12,600 Yen for registered users of Miku V2), and includes the following production software: Piapro Studio (vocal editor), Studio One Piapro Edition (DAW) and PreSonus (sound resources).

The Hatsune Miku V3 (English) software is scheduled for launch on August 31st for Windows and Mac, and will be a single voice bank. The digital download price is set at $149 USD, and is available for purchase in many regions. The boxed-version details are still to be announced. It will include the same editing and production software as the Japanese counterpart.

The cost for the bundle is 21,000 Yen (or only 15,750 Yen for registered users of Miku V2), which offers a nice discount over buying the two products separately. It will include the same editing and production suites as the two previous software packages.

Lastly, an information email was sent to registered users of Hatsune Miku’s V2 software, which details a special offer to provide V3 (Japanese) versions of Miku’s Light and Vivid voice banks. This offer seems to be exclusive to owners of the previous Hatsune Miku Append V2 software.

    American Miku is hardcore.

  • @古戸ヱリカ: It’s not “American Miku”, it’s “English Miku”.

  • :)

    Question: If we own both V2 Miku softwares but were unable to register them before the e-mail was sent, will we still be able to get both the discount and the additional Light and Vivid voice banks?

  • @:): It’s possible, I’m not sure.

  • Chuey

    Have they released any word on the Jap/Eng bundle for the west yet?
    Or is this implied?

  • @Chuey: Crypton’s own online store is currently the only place where the bundle can be ordered.

  • Chuey

    @Jrharbort: Sorry, what I was meant to ask was if there was an english version of this bundle releasing like the v3 english or is it currently restricted to jap and jap language only?


  • @Chuey: The program itself will automatically change to operate in the language your system is set to, but the V3 bundle for Japanese+English is currently only being offered on Crypton’s own online store. So the sales is restricted to Japanese only for the time being. Sorry.

  • Eva Bloodnight

    can you give me more information of the miku V3 bundle?

  • @Eva Bloodnight: What kind of “more information” are you looking for? I’ve stated pretty much everything about it that there is to say.

  • Eva Bloodnight

    of the miku v3 bundle, would it be available outside of japan and can we change the language so we can register it in English?

  • @Eva Bloodnight: Only Miku V3 (English) is available for order outside of Japan for now. As for the other question, I’m not 100% sure, but if you manage to somehow import a copy, I suspect the product installation language would be based on your system’s locale settings.

  • Eva Bloodnight

    @jrharbort: are you going to la or ny for miku 6th birthday? and if so can you plz try to get more info of the bundle? it seems better to get the bundle then buy both packages separate.

  • @Eva Bloodnight: No, I’m not going. And yes, it’s a better deal to buy the bundle. And no, there’s no more information that needs to be said about the bundle. Quite literally everything that needs to be said has been said. There’s no more secrets or unrevealed information, so stop asking.

  • Eva Bloodnight

    ok meany

  • Eva Bloodnight

    when will it be released? i found her bundle in amazon being sold by tokyo records and for a better price then the pre-order from akibania so i am kinda confused.

  • @Eva Bloodnight: The launch dates are mentioned above in the article.

  • Eva Bloodnight

    i mean can you tell me if the amazon deal is real or fake, the other company does not say pre order it actually says add to cart. yet the comany akibania says pre-order. so what’s up?

  • @Eva Bloodnight: Assuming it’s from Amazon Japan, then yes. It’s legitimate. And if it’s the better deal, then I don’t see why you wouldn’t go for it.

  • Eva Bloodnight

    simple i can not get refunds for pre-paid giftcards meaning if its fake then i will have to wait a long time to get the funds for it

  • @Eva Bloodnight: If it’s from Amazon Japan, then you have to use an Amazon Japan gift card. You cannot use an amazon gift card designed for the U.S. store.

  • Eva Bloodnight

    i use American express would that work? also never use an amazon card they charge interest

  • Fear Mendalo

    i have been following the updates about English Miku for a long time and i’m excited that its now out, but i cant find it where i like and i really want to buy it for my laptop. I love her music and i would like to make some songs for her to sing so much I’ve even been trying to learn Japanese. I cant wait.
