    I didn't believe it either. I kept searching for something that said it was a joke.

    Scanned from the issue of EGM that arrived today:

    It's Wii exclusive.

    Mario meets Disney meets Final Fantasy.

    EDIT: Hmm, it's the April issue. Could it be April Fools?

    Holy crap! WILL BUY.

    I'd wish I played the PS2 KH games, but with no PS2 and previously thinking they were bog standard RPG's with well known characters I avoided them.

    You've got a point there; it is the April issue. I don't know, they claim it to be an exclusive.

    That's irritating if so.

    Why would they publish an April Fools issue in early March?
    Why are they risking their reputation?
    That and Nintendo can't really make any announcements that will affect their stock price at the moment.

    I suppose this can go either way.

    Actually, it makes sense.

    "Mushroom Kingdom" + "Kingdom Hearts".

    I think the "the ultimate fanboy pipe dream" is a dead giveaway.


    April Fools.

    EGM has always called Kingdom Hearts fans "fanboys" and made fun of them, though.

    It's kinda painful how far behind his part of the forum is sometimes...


    ...anyway, i'm off to play my version of wind waker with realistic graphics, then i'll play some Sonic in Smash bros Melee....





    YES IT'S AN APRIL FOOLS, EGM DO IT EVERY YEAR.

    Well, the "pipe dream" part seems to give it away moreso than the "fanboy " part.

    Keep in mind, I'd love to see this actually made/released.

    Obviously an April Fool's Joke..magazine won't be out till April guys...

    Sad to see folks excited about something aimed at teasing fanboys :) Kind of a good way to sniff them out of our midst...

    :confused:

    Mario looks like so bad in that pic. It's gotta be April Fools. Puttin Mario in that series is a shame to Nintendo. We need another Super Mario RPG.

    Sorry meant to say intended to be read as April. A lot of magazines have this forward reading approach. Will publish holiday time suggestions but you're reading in Nov...

    Gotta be April Fools. The name, the odd looking Mario, and it altogether looks sort of unprofessional. Well, that's about all I need. :)

    I think it'd be far more likely to see Sora enter Mario's world thru Smash Bros. than it is for Mario to enter Sora's world.
