Sonic Boom games heading to Japan, retitled “Sonic Toon”

It looks like SEGA has reversed their decision to keep Sonic Boom as a Western-only series, as Nintendo Everything reports, the latest issue of Famitsu revealed that the Wii U and 3DS titles will be releasing in Japan under the name of Sonic Toon. No word on whether the TV series will also see release in Japan, but given the new title of Sonic Toon it is possible that the TV show will also be localized and the whole franchise is to be seen as a cartoonish Western branch of the series in Japan. Hey SEGA, as long as you’re sending games Japan’s way, why not localize some of the Japanese SEGA titles for us Westerners, we can consider it a trade.

      I think “Sonic Boom” Was just a coincidence.
      I hope a remixed version of the song Sonic Boom is used as the opening intro to the tv show though,

    Calling it now, just like with Sonic Chronicles and All-Stars Racing Transformed Japan will end up with the better version of Sonic “Toon” btw I prefer the Japanese title makes more sense!

    Probably because “Sonic Boom” would be confusing.

    Same reason as Super Mario Bros. USA i guess
    “It was made for westerners.”

    Could this be in part because of the recent backlash? ;p

    Would be funny if this franchise hits off in Japan and Sonic Team’s games are more successful in the west.
