    This should be news to most players of SSBM

    I'm going to keep this pretty well spoilered up, so bear with me.

    The Characters:

    Sonic and Tails


    The Method:

    Acheive 20 KOs with any 1 character in CRUEL MELEE.


    My request:

    I suck at Cruel Melee. Hard. I have to date acheived 2 KOs. I don't play cruel melee often because of my level of suckitude. Does anyone have advice on getting numerous KOs? I _need_ these characters.


    This information was deliverred via Electronic Gaming Monthly. There are two unexplained character slots missing, and the timing is right for this to be announced.

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    My first thought is that you should read the existing thread about this - directly /below/ the one you created at this moment... The thread titled 'sonic/tails in SSBM?'...

    It's an April Fool.

    EGM is plain evil. There is no good reason to tease and torment about such a game. I realize they've done it before, and I should have known, but come on.... Legitimate news magazines would never do April Fools without at least some sort of disclaimer at the end.

    Even Corona (a cool movie web site) does fake movies every April 1 but makes them so absurd that nobody would beleive. They even have an april fools archive.

    Come now, I deserve to fill 2 more slots on that character map!

    Glass Joe? You can't put him on the roster without Piston Hurricane and Bald Bull.

    Other famous EGM April Fools jokes include the Sega Neptune, Akuma in Resident Evil 2, and the other Bonds (Moore, Connery, etc.) in GoldenEye 007. This is just up there with those.
