Round1 on its official Facebook page has announced the start of a playtest run of Project DIVA Arcade machines at their Puente Hills location after many photos of the machines had started popping up on social networks. This confirms previous rumors of the presence of these arcade cabinets at Round1, although instead of being permanent parts of the arcade, these cabinets will simply be part of a playtest run designed to gather feedback for use in the consideration of future deployments. It appears that each play will be for four credits each, and the playtest will be held between 12:00PM February 14 and 2:00AM March 18. Furthermore, Round1 will give out one IC card to each player who fills out a survey. This is the first time a proper playtest is being held in the US for Project DIVA. Such playtests have been held before in Hong Kong (early Sept. 2010), Singapore (late Sept. 2010) and Taiwan (late Oct. 2010) a few months before permanent deployment of these arcade machines in those countries (early Jan./late Feb. 2011). Should Project DIVA Arcade launch in the US officially, it would give fans an alternative to importing the console version of the game, although gameplay is slightly different between the two.
