Hi I'm new... although I've had experience with these sites (comicvine and animevice - same user name)
 
Ok so to my blog...
Can somebody explain this?

It's fake.

A fairly obvious one at that.

I don't know. It just looks...off. Either way I just don't see this happening.

Stop lieing or give me proof.
 
If it is real, the article is probably something that has to do with Joke video game covers...

@sora_thekey: It's probably a joke.

I'm not lying.... I never read the article because it was one of those places where you're not allowed to read the articles inside.... so I just saw the picture... and never heard from this since.... I know It's "photoshoped" in some way but why is Mario carrying a keyblade... I mean photoshoped and all you can't tell me that looks like it's "real" taken straight from a video game...
 
EDIT: Here's a higher quality picture:

Was this a leftover April issue?

It's an EGM April Fool's joke.
 
 "An exclusive first look for what appeared to be a spin-off in the Kingdom Hearts series, that was to be released in 2008. It was an exclusive Wii game named " Mushroom King dom Hearts", featuring over 41 ( 4 as in April, 1 as in 1st) Nintendo characters and characters from the first two games in the series. The article was complete with artwork of a re-designed Mario holding a golden Keyblade. Sora and King Mickey are pictured with him. Accompanying this picture was an image of a Mushroom with the Kingdom Hearts crown symbol on its head. EGM has confirmed in their March 26, 2007 podcast that the article was in fact the year's April Fool's joke, commenting on how the Mario design was a photoshopped image of the Super Mario Sunshine artwork."

So it is a fake. At the same time it isn't. That's wraps it up anyway.
