Miyamoto "directly involved" in Sonic-Mario game

Hell officially froze over yesterday when Nintendo and Sega confirmed the existence of the Mario and Sonic crossover game we've been having whet dreams over since 1991. Thankfully though, it looks like it's not going to be just another Olympic cash-in...

According to Sega of America president and COO Simon Jeffery, Mario granddaddy Shigeru Miyamoto is "directly involved" in the Mario and Sonic game in a joint venture between Nintendo and Sega.

"The majority of the physical development is being done by Sega Sports Team, with very heavy supervision from Mr. Miyamoto and his team as well," Jeffery told Next-Gen. "That's what makes it particularly exciting for us," he added, in reference to Miyamoto being on board.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games will be the first time the two former-rival characters meet in a game, with other characters like Yoshi, Knuckles and Tails also joining in on the historic occasion.

This is a bunch of bull.

Do not believe a word of this crap

April 1st is 3 days away people

Unless you see some official press releases, don't believe 1 damn thing they say. This is nothing but a stupid hoax, they do it every year. So do us all a favor everyone... DON'T BUY INTO IT!

I downloaded for the SNES emulator a long time ago and it wasn't all that great. It was one of those rare games that probally wasn't licensed by Nintendo. I'm at work right now so I don't have time to search for images.
