Last year, GamesMaster’s spin off magazine ‘GamesMaster Presents’ did a special Sonic 20th Anniversary issue, despite the high price, many who bought that magazine were amazed by the level of detail which went into it as well as well as the quality of the articles and even how the magazine had contributions from the Sonic community.
According to Bisylizzie at the Sonic Stadium Message Board, the newest issue of GamesMaster Presents is now a Mario Vs Sonic special. The magazine costs £7.99 and comes with two very large double sided posters as well as a selection of stickers.
Minichapman over at Sonic Retro managed to get a copy of the magazine and took a few photos of it. He also had this to say about the publication.
For those of you have bought the Gamesmaster presents issue on the Sonic 20th anniversary then you’re not exactly missing out on too much. It’s basically a cut down of that with some minor alterations.
That said, there is some nice additions to the magazine too with Mario on side and Sonic on the other.
A nice and interesting 4 page article on Sonic Xtreme, a section discussing the early development of Sonic 1. [...] no article on Sonic 4: Episode 2 though.
If you fancy buying it, you can find it at most branches of WHSmith or if you want to order online check out this store for prices, whilst they do ship abroad, it’s very expensive, you might be best asking someone at SSMB’s market place to get you a copy.
Stay tuned for more info as we get it.
