Another SEGA attraction is now closed down after about 7 years of service. The Sonic Railway in the Lalaport Fujimi City shopping center in Saitama, Japan is no more after January 10. The train station had a miniature sized train cart (fully operational with buttons and lights for kids), affixed with blue and yellow and had Sonic pictured on all sides (with the front and back doing the pose from Sonic 1). It also showcases a small track with crossings, make-shift bridges, and a garage which houses additional carts. Some additional carts were used as collaborations as well, such as Gautama and Hello Kitty. The attraction (also loosely named “Sonic Station”) was for all ages and gives you a small introduction on how train carts and stations operate on a basic level in Japan.
The official Japanese Sonic Twitter account has announced that there will be a live broadcast for Sonic news and information on the 20th of every month with the first one beginning on February 20th at 18:00 JST (4 AM EST, 3 AM CST, and 1 AM PST).
The stream will be hosted by Sonic Series Creative Director, Kazuyuki Hoshino, and Sound Director, Jun Senoue with them discussing the latest apparel, SEGA AGES: Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and more. Fans can also submit newsletters for them to address during the stream.
