Just when you thought SSB: M had run out of replay value . . . .

Just got this from GameInformer, and I'm looking at a screen of Sonic in SSB: M now, so it's legit.

Here's how:

Achieve a high score of 20 KO's with any character in Cruel Melee. Sonic and Tails will then challenge you at the same time. Defeat them both, and you can play them as individuals in the game. It also says that if you beat Classic with either one, you'll get a special surprise. (No spoilers ok?)

It should say this when you unlock them:

A Dream's Been Cast!
Sonic & Tails Join the Melee

How come nobody's noticed this before now? Is it date driven, or do you have to have a Sonic save or something?

Edited to add: isn't this the same magazine that announced GTA3 was coming for the Cube? :rolleyes:

Um, this screen is in the magazine? Are you sure it's not the April issue?

It is the April issue.

It doesn't say anything about a Sonic save needed, so no one's probably known about it because Cruel Melee is so damn hard. The most I've ever seen KO'd is 5.

Crazy! Having a sonic save could have somthing to do with it..that would be pretty cool if it did. Well, enjoy you SSB:M players you!

I'd like to check that screenshot, and if anyone does do this, let us know what the secret is in spoilers of course... the people who don't want to know will have to exercise some self control. ;)

The Sonic in SSB:M picture and tip on how to get him is also in the April issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly (which has State of Emergency in it).

I just realized this is an April Fool's joke. Blasted!

April Fool's jokes are pretty damn unfunny in February.

My favorite is still EGM's GoldenEye :lol:

20 KOs in Cruel Melee is impossible.

Nope, I totally remember that.

I remember when PSM ran that one for the game where the lead female character is naked. The game's name was something like "_____ Wilde".

I worked at a video game store and and I got tons of calls from perverts wanting to buy it! :lol:

Poor Chaos is probably sitting in front of the TV turning red with frustration trying to get 20 KO's in Cruel Melee. :lol:

I don't remember the GoldenEye one, but i sure remember way back when for the TMNT: Arcade game for SNES, "Play as Simon Bellmont" I was just a kid then and man, i must have spent like 2 hours trying to get that &%&*$* code to work :)

awww man! I was hoping this was true. I always wanted pit Mario versus Sonic ;). Its still February that is pretty early for the April issue though.

On a side note, wasn't there a sonic fighting game? Can't remember what it was called but I remember seeing pictures of it for an arcade version. I always liked thegia.com 's April Fool's jokes, they go pretty elaborate on some of them. Here's one of my favorites, The new Final Fantasy DDR game called Funky Fantasy:

Complete with original remix samples of FF music on the site in DDR style music.

Someone is going to have to refresh my memory on the Goldeneye hoax. I distinctly remember the Sheng Long (sp?) hoax however.

If anyone doesn't know about this, I just found it out a week ago or so... if you have Samus, some combination of the Z button and button mashing on the d-pad (not the analog stick) while holding block will cause Samus' grappling arm to double in length and home in on enemies (even through objects).

That isn't an April Fools' gag, so try it out if you haven't already. Once you unlock it in a match, that becomes your A button (IIRC). Press A again when the tip is near an opponent to grab 'em.

Another fun thing to try is to catch 3 items in Mr. Game & Watch's bucket (B + down). He'll start glowing, and you can throw the bucket contents at someone for an instant KO.

actually... this was in the new EGM as well. Art game informer and EGM related? or did they copy this from each other?
