Sonic X Coming to US Netflix December 1st 2019

Monday, November 18th, 2019

Seasons 1 and 2 of the Sonic X anime are heading to the North American version of Netflix on December 1st 2019. This means the first 52 episodes of the show that ran from 2003 to 2005 will be available for viewing.

If you’re unfamiliar with Sonic X then you’ll be unfamiliar with its plot where Sonic and his friends are accidentally transported to Earth. It’s very similar in scope to the upcoming film from Paramount Pictures, except that Sonic befriends a child named Chris Thorndyke instead of a police officer.

There is currently no word on when/if the remaining 26 episodes of season 3 will be hitting the platform. It is also worth mentioning that there is currently no definitive word on which regions outside North America will receive Sonic X. Spain, Mexico and Argentina are also confirmed. Thanks to Ash the Dragon for the news tip.

Project Diva-Inspired Anime Rhythm Game Miracle Girls Festival Launches Dec 17th in Japan

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.

If you are not able to find the right game why not try these out as 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.
