Sega Seeks Western facebook ‘Likes’ and ‘Comments’ for Hatsune Miku

Way back at last year’s E3, Sega has been testing the waters for releasing games based on the ever popular vocaloid from Japan, Hatsune Miku. At the showfloor they were demoing a quickly put together English build of the Playstation Vita version of Hatsune Miku – Project Diva – f for the press as well as releasing Miku Flick for iOS for English speakers to garner some support. Turns out that once again they’re now asking for more support, this time from the general public on their facebook page. If successful, Sega will seek to release the Playstation 3 version of Hatsune Miku – Project Diva – F instead of the Playstation Vita, possibly due to struggling sales of the handheld. (Also see if you can spot the difference in the name of both versions of the game.) If you, and your friends, want to show your support, be sure to hit up their facebook page to throw your ‘Likes’ and ‘Comments’ their way.

It may not be much longer now, considering that Miku was also one of the top requested characters for DLC characters for Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, several tours have been made in the US and otherwise to raise awareness and…oh my. Their next tour is on March 11th in Austin, Texas. That’s pretty close to home. I wouldn’t be creepy if I went to go check it out for myself would it?

UPDATE: Turns out it’s just their presence at the South By Southwest Convention happening in Austin, and the 11th is their specialized panel demonstrating the tech behind the vocaloid software. Thanks to Shadix for pointing that out. Anybody got $1350 to spare for a ticket?

    I shared and liked the picture, since I’m a fan of the SEGA made rhythm games such as the Project DIVA series and K-On! Houkago Live!!

    As for the concert, go check it out, maybe she’ll since Live and Learn! (fat chance, that song turned out as a disaster)

    Shame they can’t be bothered to place that kind of energy behind their own catalog of IPs.

    I love the lack of interest in the voice of the guy presenting it.

    So THAT’s why she was so requested! I didn’t know Sega was making Vocaloid games. Am I really that out of touch?

      Apparently.

      The first Miku game came out in 2009 for the PSP.

    I’ve got the demo for the original Project Diva on my PSP, and it’s a pretty fun game. I’d recommend downloading it if you have a PSP, should be easy to find on the internet. You don’t really need to know Japanese to play it.
