You know it’s bound to happen. You know an import game looks awesome and you really want it, but you’re not sure about importing. So you wait, think on it and finally decide the game is worth it and take the plunge. Good for you!

Then a few months later, you find out there’s a better or cheaper version of the game coming soon.

That’s exactly what is happening to people who grabbed Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f for the Vita. I know, because I did it too. Sure, we knew a PS3 version was coming, but I think I speak for all of us when I saw we only thought it would just be prettier! We didn’t expect PS3 owners to get a lot of extra content!

Unfortunately, that’s exactly what has happened. On March 7, 2013 Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F will show up in Japan with quite a few extra goodies. In addition to the full HD visuals that make the Vocaloids look a lot better and more expressive, the PS3 version gets six more songs and 13 new modules (outfits).

Here – the Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F trailer discusses all the changes while showing Miku performing one of the newly added songs, “Tell Your World.”

Only one other new song has been revealed, and that’s “Sweet Devil.” The trailer also highlights the fact that the PS3 save file works with the Vita game and vice-versa.

I suppose there is some good news. The Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F content will come to Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f as DLC. Yes, that’s the same name twice – the Vita version is differentiated by it’s lowercase “F.” Sega hasn’t revealed if it will charge for the extra DLC, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they did. Of course, people who imported would have to have a whole separate memory card to tie to their Japanese PlayStation Network account to even get that DLC, so it’s not like it matters to us.

So what’s the lesson here? Always wait at least six months after an import game is released before buying it. Well done! We’ll remember that for next time. (No we won’t.)

  1. I dunno about “better”… The portable version can be played on a bus. Because of this, I imagine I will be playing it a lot more than the PS3 version… which is about to arrive any moment now.
