Japan’s plan to conquer the world with computer-created virtual pop-music idols continues rolling on, as Sega has announced this week that Hatsune Miku will soon be hitting another platform on our shores.

That platform? Sony’s PlayStation Vita, which will offer up a more portable version of the latest chapter of Sega’s Project Diva series come early next year. Actually, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f was the original version of the fourth entry in the Project Diva franchise, but Sega of America decided to test the waters of a Western release with the PlayStation 3 port of the title.

Project Diva began as a series on the PlayStation Portable, and even though I much appreciated the higher resolution and smoother framerate of the PS3-powered Dreamy Theater companions to the PSP Diva games, I’ve always considered handhelds to be their true homes. So, I’ve had the Vita version of Project Diva f ever since I picked it up during my trip to last year’s Tokyo Game Show.

Unlike the PS3 version, Sega of America is going the digital-only route this time around. It’s a shame—but a decision I can’t really argue with from a business standpoint. (Except for the chance to once again bitch about how small yet over-priced the Vita’s memory cards are.) At this point, I hadn’t even expected that we’d get an English-language version of Project Diva f, so it’s quite the nice surprise.
