More from the press release:
“We are proud to finally announce this herculean translation project to bring Hatsune Miku fans English lyric translations,” said John Cheng, President and COO, SEGA of America. “We worked closely with our partners in Japan and the artists to ensure that the lyrical intent of the original Japanese is maintained so our non-Japanese speaking fans can better understand the meaning and context of the amazing world of Hatsune Miku.”
Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA™ F 2nd features twenty classic songs from the previously Japan-only PSP games making their first debut in the West, and twenty brand new songs to the Project DIVA series. In addition to the new songs, the game will feature updated gameplay mechanics and controls, more than 80 brand new and remade fan favorite modules, Cross-Save compatibility, Markerless AR Mode (PlayStation®Vita) and a revamped edit mode ranking system that showcases the most popular user generated content to provide gamers the best music game experience on the PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®Vita systems.
