In what will probably be the strangest rumor this weekend, a new slice of gossip is claiming that Sonic the Hedgehog will be a playable character in Mario Galaxy 2. In a way, that's very plausible -- if you've not been able to star in any decent games yourself for the past ten years, why not gatecrash someone else's game?
The rumor's being spread by NGamer, a UK-based Nintendo Magazine. According to NGamer, a "trusted source" at Nintendo has spilled the beans, explaining that Sonic will be in a stage called "Green Hill Galaxy."
These guys could just be yanking our cranks, but it would kind of make sense. We already know that Mario and Sonic are more than happy teaming up, with the Mario & Sonic games and Super Smash Bros. Brawl being prime examples. Also, with the announcement of Sonic 4, it would be good for Sonic to get as much face time with the public as possible.
Then again, this was posted Friday night, so the NGamer chaps might just have been drunk and screwing with us. Who knows?
