Incoming Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F Heads West In August

After a Facebook post poll of North American and European fans garnered 25,000 likes and 15,000 shares in less than three days, Sega has deemed the U.S. and Europe worthy of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F for the PlayStation 3 in August. Want more good news? There's a demo coming next week.

Despite Kotaku East's continuing coverage of the Japanese virtual idol game, I've somehow managed to avoid importing Project Diva F. It's been painful, but now the pain has paid off. The localized version of the game hits U.S. and European stores and PSN in August, with a demo dropping on June 11 (June 12 in Europe).

“It’s very rare that we’re able to answer the overwhelming support and demand for a game like Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F,” said John Cheng, President and COO, Sega of America via official announcement. “And we’re excited to be able to deliver this creative and unique experience for the western audience to enjoy.”

I love you, John Cheng. I am so excited right now I might ... import the Japanese version so I can play right now.
