Sonic Playable in Super Mario Galaxy 2?

Posted by Rebecca Gunn

Will Sonic be touring space with his old rival?

UK magazine Ngamer has posted an interesting tweet on Twitter this afternoon, making a rather bold claim that not only comes right out of the left field and has left us all a bit dazed and confused here at Nintendo Life Towers.

We should stress this is currently deep in the realms of rumour territory for now, with no confirmed word from Sega or Nintendo, so please take it with a rather large pinch of salt for the time being.

Here's the Tweet in question:

We've just had some shocking news from an inside source at Nintendo: Sonic will be a playable character in Mario Galaxy 2! Wha?

They sound about as surprised as we are! As always we'll keep you posted if the blue speedster and the world's favourite plumber do indeed join forces outside of the Olympics.

As unlikely as Sonic and Mario starring in a game based on the Olympics, you mean? ;)

I really do not believe this in any way. It would make the game feel too different. Unless there becomes video proof I can't and won't believe it.

I cannot see this happening in Galaxy 2. Brawl is one thing, but having him in a main entry is another. I think someone let their April Fool's joke out early.

if this is true, AWESOME. If not, then somebody has made the biggest early April Fools Joke ever. How would it even work anyway? Sonic is about speed, and Mario is about precise platforming.

What a horrible idea, and one I feel confident must be nothing more than rumor. Why take a character from a series that has been an embarrassment throughout the 3D era and put him into the sequel to the game that reinvigorated the genre? Letting SEGA have the license for the Olympics games was bad enough.

To be honest, I wouldn't mind Sonic appearing in this game. I'd much rather have Sega and Nintendo working together on an adventure actually designed for both characters together, but Sonic in this game isn't SUCH a bad idea, to me at least. It'll be interesting to see him riding Yoshi, at least; that's worth a shot I'd say!

If Nintendo is allowing Sonic in a mariogame they are starting to go nuts, it's an extremely bad idea that I think Nintendo fans will quit staying loyal to their favourite consolemaker. Being innovative is one thing and is good when developers pushes their franschises into new challenging gaming ideas but an idea like this will destroy the mariogames completely.

NFreak007

NFreak007 said:

Ugh. I REALLY hope not. Or if they have to, at least give us the option to just play as Mario. Mario and Sonic are both great franchises, but combining them in a major Mario title just wouldn't work. Super Mario Galaxy 2 should remain just that: Super MARIO Galaxy.

It would be cool if it was a Sonic planet, like a Yoshi planet in the first game.

Well, if the Sonic levels are limited to just one galaxy, then it isn't THAT bad. After all, you could just not play it.

What are you guys talking about?
You don't even know in what form or how you are going to be able to play as Sonic
and if the game's good, why would you boycott it only because Sonic appears in it?
I would love to see some areas of Sonic games implemented as a Galaxy in SMG2
Or maybe Mario gets a hedgehog suit that allows him to run fast
There are many possibilities and I can't wait to see what they made of it :D

That's totally different. You just can't compare Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games with Super Mario Galaxy 2.

aaronsullivan

aaronsullivan said:

I don't see it. At all.

If it happens, somebody working on the game must have had a REALLY great idea to make it fun/interesting. The problem is that Sonic has been run into the ground as a franchise (4 hasn't saved him yet). It's fine to put him in a compilation game where there are many third rate characters or has beens because we think of them as they were not how they are now.

On the other hand, maybe they are having fun with a BUNCH of cameos in this one. Maybe even playable. That would help.

On the other hand --?-- it's just not going to happen. ;)

I like how half of you are saying this is bad because Sonic's games are bad. Because even if it is true, Nintendo's so going to let Sonic Team's coding department anywhere near this game, am I right? If Sonic's in it, it will be Sonic as developed by Nintendo. Sonic levels as planned by Miyamoto. Which sounds awesome to me.

@34: Yes. Please yes.

warioswoods

warioswoods said:

Sonic would also need a complete re-imagining in order to look half-decent in 3D, something he's never really been given. Look at how much Mario was changed in the transition to 3D, giving him a toddler-like movement and proportions along with a particular cartoonish style. Sonic's 3D models have all been horribly bland attempts to basically just render something like the old sprites. He's simply not up to the standards of a Mario Galaxy game, unless he were completely rethought from the ground up, and I can't see Nintendo being allowed to do that with him.

I'm with Raylax and Yosher on this one. I highly doubt it's true, but if it is it could be quite awesome.

Raylax said:

@warioswoods: And I thought one of the original controversies of Sonic's 3D appearance was that he looked extremely different (taller, lankier, green eyes) from his Genesis-era older self (shorter, chubbier, brown eyes).

I have no reason to doubt NGamer. Without something like this to shake things up, Super Mario Galaxy 2 would just be more of the same but with slightly different levels.

warioswoods

#57

warioswoods said:

Fair, his proportions looks a bit different, but I've never seen him looking well-designed enough in 3D to envision him running around in Galaxy. I'm very biased, though, because even before the gameplay, the very look of Sonic's 3D games from the Gamecube era was an instant turn-off for me. I just don't like their visual style at all, and don't see it as compatible. Actually, I pretty much hate the artwork and design behind all of the Sonic-related characters, and thought that they looked absurd in the Olympic games as well. That's just me, I suppose.

darklinkinfinite said:

I honestly wouldn't mind if Sonic was playable in Galaxy 2 but I really don't see it happening.

What would really have me foaming at the mouth would be an actual crossover game that incorporates each character's own gameplay styles as opposed to trying to fit one into the other's world.

I mean, maybe Eggman made a portal into the mushroom kingdom, bringing in his whole fleet and making an Alliance with Bowser. And Sonic (JUST Sonic) follows him through the portal and teams up with Mario to save little animals, Princess Peach, the Mushroom Kingdom, and find the Chaos Emeralds.

And at the end there will be a big battle with you as Super Sonic and Super Mario (haha, I made a funny!) fighting against Bowser's Castle merged with Eggman's flagship.

Well, Sega is certainly making an effort to try to bring Sonic back to his former glory. Sonic and Knuckles is finally coming to the VC, Sonic Classic Collection on the DS, Sonic 4 on WiiWare and now this(maybe). I wouldn't be too surprised if this actually does happen.

I certainly wouldn't boycott it under any circumstances, given how much I love Galaxy and am waiting for the sequel -- I might give a long sigh of disappointment when I reach these levels, though. That'll show 'em.

@Faildude@Post#45 I agree. Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 are great 3D Sonic games (and Sonic Unleashed's day levels are also great). These people claiming that Sonic's never been good in 3D don't know what they're talking about.

I highly doubt this is true, but if it is, I'll have to reconsider my decision not to get this game. That's right. I'm planning on NOT getting Galaxy 2 (hate the camera in the first game), but Sonic being a playable character could convince me to get it after all.

I really hope this isn' true, it feels like a weird clash of franchises. Sure, in party-games it's great to have the mascots together, but in the next Mario game!?

Having said that, I can imagine it working more if it was maybe a Sonic planet, or a really short cameo of some sort.

Galaxy 2 is in capable hands. The idea of a Hedgehog suit is not too far-fetched.

Seriously why would Nintendo add sonic to one of their masterpieces?
It's illogical, Sonic doesn't fit the Mario (galaxy) world and Nintendo is selling Mario games like hot cakes without sonic in them. Sonic is right where he belongs in some spinoffs just to fill up the roster of playable characters.

ToneDeath

#167

ToneDeath said:

@Dragoon: Actually, I've been thinking for a while that a 2D crossover could be cool. The levels could be designed so that you can approach them differently depending on whether you play as Mario or Sonic. So while Mario might not be able to do spin attacks or get through loop-de-loops, he can go down pipes, use items like fire flowers and maybe even lift enemies like in SMB2.

As for Galaxy 2, I think it'd nice to see Nintendo show Sega how to make Sonic work in 3D. As long as it doesn't just feel like an update of the spheres game from Sonic & Knuckles.

Token_Girl

#193

Token_Girl said:

I could see a cameo, but to make him playable, you'd need to either make sonic play like mario (what's the point) or incorporate a whole new game engine. Seems like too much work. I wouldn't mind a cameo, but i'd be pretty pissed if Mario saves Sonic. The scars of the 16 bit console wars run deep Nintendo...be careful.

A true crossover would be cool though. Bottom line, I'm pretty doubtful he'll be in there at all.

This would be absurd. I'd prefer to see other great characters from Mario's universe who have never appeared in the plumber's major 3D platform series, such as Wario (excluding his appearance in SM64DS), Waluigi, Daisy or Donkey Kong.
However:
Untitled
... and there's no place for hedgehogs! :-)

This rumour is hard to believe, and even if it's true Nintendo will make sure that the quality of the game isn't compromised.
And the (possible) fact that Sonic enters there doesn't mean automatically that the game will lose quality.

Hmm...I don't know. At first, when i read this article, I was like "What...the flosswaffle?How can you ruin mario this way?" but then after a bit of thinking...I kind of like this idea. Super Mario Galaxy seems like a decent place for Sonic. It may be kind of cool. Hell, it is a rumor after all so it can be anything. Maybe there's some kind of hedgehog suit that looks like sonic and allows mario to go really fast lol. I don't think Sonic will be playable, though. I don't know...let's just wait for the release and whatever happens-happens.

Wow there's a lot of comments here. And I scored #200. Woo. I'm amused by everyone crying over this. I think it'll be awesome, personally.

lol "floss waffle" sorry NL that was my bad =0. To be honest, I don't really care if Sonic is in the game or not. Just have my favorite plumber in the game and I'm all good.

Noooo! I always took this as Mario's turf! I'd still buy it, but I wouldn't like it as much. I'm finding it hard to keep sticking to Nintendo. Leave SEGA out of this!

Although, this could be a simple test involving psychology. Look how many people started commenting on this. It's drawin' us in. Maybe they won't tell us the final verdict, and people'll want to buy it in the end to see if Sonic really is there, boosting sales of Super Mario Galaxy 2 immensely.You get my drift, people?

Regardless whether Sonic is in the game or not, SMG2 will still kick aardvark.

WOW, look at all those comments! :D I'm sure Sonic will be fun to play as in SMG2, but I highly doubt this rumor is true.

Like this'll ever happen. The best I see it is one of the galaxies being called Super Sonic Galaxy: the place the orange Yoshi was in the trailer.

This is Nonsense! I do not remember the master creator wanting any other characters in different franchises to meet up with the exception of Smash Bros.

Utter Koopa-Crap! Nintendo's Headquarters is locked up tighter than Bowser's Castle when it comes to Galaxy 2 leaks. They released 10 screenshots and one video at E3 2009. I mean, come on! It's been 8 frikken months and absolutely nothing else besides speculation and rumours. Whomever created this Goombaloney is sitting behind a computer somewhere laughing at all the comotion this has caused. Maybe they'll put Sonic in the next Mario Kart, but Galaxy? Come on.....

Wait a minute! NintendoLife actually sourced this from twitter? I had more respect for this site :( Last I checked, "tweets" are not a reliable source of info.

@Stardust: They sourced it from NGamer, which is a reliable source of information - it's a UK-based independant gaming magazine with a large following, they're about as likely to post information they know is completely untrue as NL is. So, not very.

What's interesting to me is that everyone cites how bad recent Sonic games have been. I take it none of you have faith that the developers behind Mario Galaxy could take the character and make something good with him? It's not like Sonic Team would be developing these rumored Sonic sections, y'know.

And hey, maybe Mario will meet everyone from Brawl in their own galaxy. I look forward to playing as Solid Snake in Big Shell Galaxy

Hmm.......I've been thinking. Remember the Crazy Gadget level in SA2 and Sonic was all using those gravity switches to get from one floating block to another? If not, this was it: Untitled Untitled This was actually done pretty well, in my opinion. I'd imagine this would be sorta like that, only with WAY more epic music and more, well, Mario-like.

@Doskias: That wouldn't be a bad idea. And then we also have a Pokémon galaxy and a Hyrule galaxy. And Samus will be playable as well :+

Super Mario Galaxy 2 was just a working title. The game's official name is Mario & Sonic at the InterGalactic Games.

Nice.

It never occurred to me that animated GIFs were uploadable here for avatars. I suspect others also never thought of it. Let the floodgates open!

@Warioswoods. I never realized that either. There have been a couple people popping up lately that have animated icons. Wonder why no one ever tried using one before?

Nah this will never happen! All though N-Games makes me laugh!
Sega should do a version of Mario 64!

Maybe Galaxy 2 will come out when Sonic 4 comes out (Wii-ware)

Why would Nintendo make the STUPIDEST MISTAKE they could POSSIBLY MAKE by not only risking the sales of Super Mario Galaxy 2, but also risking all the other upcoming Mario titles and even themselves (Nintendo) going out of business?!
If there's no more Mario, there's no more Nintendo. It's that simple. Why? Because Mario IS Nintendo!
