An anime-themed rhythm game based on the Project Diva engine called Miracle Girls Festival will launch in Japan on December 17th for PS Vita.

The game features characters from such series’ as Yuru Yuri, Go Go 575, Kirino Mosaic and Arpeggio of Blue Steel. Those are things that exist apparently.

You can watch a gameplay trailer below. It all looks incredibly similar to a Project Diva game so it instantly has my attention because God damn do I love that series:

Despite only being confirmed for a Japanese release, this game can be imported and played on any PS Vita due to the console’s lack of region lock. I’ve personally had no trouble learning to play Project Diva using my Japanese copies and I have no understanding of the language so if I can do it, anyone can.
