初音ミク -プロジェクト ディーヴァ- 2nd Hatsune Miku Project Diva 2ndTime for more Miku! Sega’s just announced that it is preparing Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA 2nd, the sequel to the PSP music game Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA for a July 29, 2010 release! And, like all sequels, it will have more of what made the first game great.

For example, more Vocaloids. Rin and Len Kagamine both appeared in a few songs of their own in the original Project DIVA, and they’ll be back for Project DIVA 2nd. There’ll also be Vocaloid duets. As you can see from the image at the right there, Luka Megurine joins Miku for a duet. The image is probably from “Magnet,” since that track is confirmed to be in the new game and is a Miku and Luka duet. Another confirmed duet is “Romeo and Cinderella.” Since that track is a duet between Miku and Kaito, I guess that means he’s in the game again too.

The Project DIVA 2nd basic gameplay is going to be the same, that is, pressing the PSP’s X, O, square and triangle buttons when prompted. This time, there’ll also be extended button presses, and at times multiple button presses. Also, the Edit Mode, which lets you import your own mp3s to create your own playable custom tracks and music videos, will be enhanced and improved. There’ll probably be new moves and backgrounds for videos as well. It’ll also be compatible with Project DIVA custom tracks, so you can import those save files and enhance them in the new game.

And, of course, there’ll be more new customs for players to unlock and Miku to wear. Perhaps this time we’ll actually see Gakupo in the game.

As you can probably tell from my enthusiasm, I want it. I don’t care about price. I absolutely must own Project DIVA 2nd. The first Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA was probably the best PSP music game I have ever played, and I can not miss the sequel.
