We’ve learned (via Kotaku) that DJMAX spiritual successor Superbeat: Xonic is coming to North America this fall. We first wrote about the game following its reveal back in March of this year, so it’s exciting to see a western release confirmed this soon.

The game is developed by former DJMAX developers at the new Korean studio Nurijoy. The game’s western release is a collaborative effort between Acttil and PM Studios, the latter of which handled the publishing of DJMAX games here in the United States.

“I’m extremely excited to work with my former colleagues and bring what I feel is our spiritual successor to DJMax,” said PM Studios CEO Michael Yum in a press release. “We’ve been listening to the fans and decided that the Vita was the best platform for our players.

“I’m also very honored to work with the talented folks at both Nurijoy and Acttil on this new endeavor. With the former DJMax developers at both PM Studios and Nurijoy developing what they’re best at and by allowing Acttil to help us bring this game to the market, I feel we can give the players something they can really enjoy.”
