SEGA and Colorful Palette have come bearing a surprise announcement for Hatsune Miku’s 14th anniversary: A planned and soon-coming English localization of Project SEKAI: Colorful Stage! feat. Hatsune Miku! Check out the official announcement trailer above.

The Western release will be renamed to “Hatsune Miku: Colorful Stage!”, likely to help put more emphasis on Crypton Future Media’s characters, versus the other original characters also present in the game.

The original Japanese release of the mobile rhythm game has been available on Android and iOS for about a year, and proved popular among Western fans despite not having an official English translation.

The launch date of the English release is set for later in 2021, so stay tuned for that announcement!
