Rather than necro-ing my old thread about this, since the guideline is now "new threads for new news", there's now an official website for Hatsune Miku English version which states that it's coming out this summer.





I'm hoping it'll be bundled with the updated Vocaloid 3 editor.

Discuss.

But... the whole point was the cute japanese voice...

I just want the software itself in English. I had it before and it was confusing as fuck.

There's nothing stopping you from buying Miku V2 and Vocaloid V3 English and combining the two right now, as far as I know, if that's all you want. However I think this newer software will be a bit more user friendly maybe.

Given that there have been Hatsune Miku concerts in America, I think you might be wrong about this.
Miku is incredibly mainstream in Japan, though. To say she won't get as popular in the West is a banal statement: of course she won't.

I personally think her English accent is awful, I still prefer her Japanese voicebank, something sounds really wrong with her sugary cute voice and the harsh English accent

I think I'll try to get this and use it to make a ending song for my game, but I think I'd rather use the JP voice banks for her in some areas.
