Sega currently has Hatsune Miku Project Diva 2.5 and Dreamy Theater 2nd due for release in the coming months. The Hatsune Miku franchise will also be getting some exposure to international audiences as Sega holds a live event at July's Anime Expo in Los Angeles.

But these are just the publicly known projects for what has become one of Sega's key franchises. Sega has more on the way, according to series spokesperson Nakanohito. Writing at Twitter earlier today, Nakanohito said that Sega is currently progressing with two secret projects.

Nakanohito also made some speculative comments about Sony's next generation NGP portable system, suggesting that the development staff would have to consider what direction to take if making an NGP entry in the series. Wrote Nakanohito: "If we made it for NGP, the models would likely become high poly, but what should we do about the shading? It's the PSP followup, so we should probably not change the image too much. Of course, I have a feeling it really depends on if everyone buys the system."
