With the growing popularity of Vocaloid idol Hatsune Miku, Sega caved in and released Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita outside of Japan. Now they have revealed that Miku will be coming to the US and Europe for the Nintendo 3DS with an enhanced version of Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI 2.

The Vocaloid based rhythm game currently has the working title Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI Remix. Being on the 3DS, it utilises two different rhythm game modes, where players can use the touch screen or the buttons, hitting markers during each song. As well as Miku, the game features the characters Rin, Len, Luka, Meiko and Kaito, who are given a cute Nendroid makeover. As well as unlocking costumes and items for each characters room, the game also uses StreetPass, so players can share their favourite character, song and dance routines.

“Hatsune Miku’s popularity in the west keeps growing,” said John Cheng, President and COO of SEGA of America. “We are proud to support such an amazing franchise with our games.”

Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI Remix will be the first time a Hatsune Miku game on a Nintendo console has been released outside of Japan, but it will involve quite a wait, for it won’t be available here till 2015.

Below are a trio of commercials for when Project Mirai 2 was released in Japan, showing off the rhythm action, costumes and items for the character rooms.
