They should change her name to HATSUNE MILKU.

(Looks like a wonderful rhythm game. I played the first one.)

If this ends up getting released outside Japan and I happen to see it in Data Blitz then I'd be glad to get it.

That usually means a no. How exactly are they suppose to get fan support if they don't release the game in the west? And I highly doubt importers are considered "enough fan support".

Just like companies saying, "well we didn't release it in the west because there were no fan support for it." But how are people suppose to buy and support a product that has never been released to them.

It would be nice if it did came out in the west, but I feel it's highly unlikely.

The consideration came after the success of Demon's Souls and Dark Souls on consoles. Not a very hard choice to make.

The game came out for the consoles in Sept/Oct 2011; Namco/From shipped 1.5 million worldwide. So they already knew this game (Dark Souls) was successful.

The petition started in January 2012. Of course Namco love milking a successful product. What better way than to ask gamers if they're willing to buy it "again" for the PC to get access to better servers, higher res, and possible mods.

I don't follow Wii news, considering I don't own a Wii.

But let's get back on track, this is Sega we're talking about. The same Sega that released Valkyria Chronicles (PS3) which became a sleeper hit and fans desperate for more, only to have it's sequels on the psp. I understand portable gaming is popular in japan and cost less to develop for, but are they just gonna ignore the rest of the world?

again. without Fan petition. i doubt NB care about PC market. Tekken series is very successful (Tekken 6 sold 3M). did NB put it on PC? no, because no one ask for it. of course there is always business decision why they do that since they are money making business after all.

fan petition and support is one of the way to show company that there is market in there that want to buy it. which mean more money to them.

I doubt Diva F cost that much money to localized. in E3 built. all menu is fully translated. put it on PSN if you cannot afford to go to retail. i dont see why this is bad for them

of course at the end is up to sega to decide if they should publish it. i never said they will to begin with. i just said it possible that they do it

Project Diva is quite awkward to localize though.
It is basically what stops a huge majority of game to be released without an english dub: there is no way they would appeal a large customer base without any "english" versions of every songs they have, even though vocaloid engine is far from being suitable for English output (well, one can argue incoming append versions and all are possible, but current Miku, Kagamine siblings and Luka to some extent aren't really any good).

Even if you expect those who buy the game to be somewhat deep in anime stuff, in general sense, it is really not something that would encourage a developer to localize a game as niche as this one, even if some companies managed to sell titles that are even more risque (Nisa to name one among others).
And considering Sega financial situation being a complete wreck, I don't think they will take such advent any time soon.

They should just do what anime studios do; just have English subtitles and an English distribution website. As in, don't bother try to mass-market it in the West when there isn't a large market anyway. Make it available for English speakers to buy the game from them directly.

As far as I can tell, the only people who would buy the game are those who already know what Project Diva is. So they can just use viral marketing and leave the rest to the internet.

By the way, I haven't heard anything about Sega being in financial trouble. And anyway Miku is one of their profitable properties right now.

Tekken main series is (or was) exclusive to the Playstation.

I doubt is too awkward to localize. This is music game. While it is nice to have English version to understand the music. i don't think it stops anyone to enjoy music, even if they don't understand it. Sega can provide subtitle anyway.

i doubt translation cost of Diva F is expansive. They can easily cover even if thousand is been sold. Assuming it been sold digitally to ignore retail cost (and sega situation is not that bad)
