Hatsune Miku debuts in North America this August with Project Diva F for PS3

Virtual superstar Hatsune Miku will make her North American video game debut this August in Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F for PlayStation 3, publisher Sega announced today.

Rhythm game Project Diva F will launch for PS3 at retail and for download through the PlayStation Network. The game will also be available in Europe this August through PSN only.

The title lets players create and share their own videos starring Miku and features 38 songs, including popular Japanese tunes "Tell Your World" and "Black Rock Shooter." An Edit Mode will allow players to customize Miku's appearance with more than 90 costume pieces and other accessories.

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F is the first console title in the Vocaloid franchise to launch in the west, and will include the updated graphics and additional songs and features from the Japanese version.

A demo of the title will be available via PSN on Tuesday, June 11 in North America and the following day in Europe.

The PlayStation Blog reports that Miku already has a dedicated fanbase in North America, which includes more than 970,000 Facebook fans and a sold-out 2011 concert in Los Angeles featuring a hologram performance by the singer.

"To gauge interest for Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F in the west, Sega sked fans to like and share an image of Miku to pledge their support, and the response was astounding," wrote Sega of America associate brand manager Aaron Webber. "In less than three days, the post received over 25,000 likes and 15,000 shares.

"In short, it was your voices, as fans, that helped make this happen," he added.
