Posted on August 6, 2007, Jonathan Sonic Appearing in Smash Bros. Brawl?
Rumors have been flying since the announcement of Smash Bros. Brawl that Sonic the Hedgehog would finally be joining the ranks of the popular fighting game. Unfortunately, it’s been hard to take them seriously since the same rumors cropped up for Smash Bros. Melee. However now it seems an EB Games in Woodbridge, NJ is displaying a pre-order ad for the game that shows Sonic standing shoulder to shoulder with Nintendo’s finest. The image also show Birdo from Super Mario Bros. 2 and K.K. Slider from Animal Crossing. A store employee was quick to point out that it’s just a mock-up for the game’s box art, but that looks pretty professional for something someone would’ve just slapped together. Usually these sorts of things look like cheap color print outs. And with Sonic and Mario already confirmed to be sharing the spotlight in a game based on the 2008 Olympics, this seems more plausible this time around.
