Sega announced today via press release that Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd will have English lyric translations. I was really happy to hear this news, being a big fan of a lot of the tracks found in this title.  This will make the lyrics easy for everyone to understand without having to search the net for a separate translation.  Here is a quote 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 will launch this fall on the PS3 and Vita.  You can check out the full press release below for more information.
