Sonic In Gunblade NY/LA Machineguns? Allow Me To Solve This Mystery

Have you heard the one about the game that went back in time 13 years to change another game? No – well you’ve clearly missed the talk about the recent Gunblade NY & LA Machineguns trailer that I actually launched on an unsuspecting world a couple of days back. See below.

Well an eagle-eyed person has spotted that the game now magically contains an advert for Sonic & The Black Knight!

Why has this occurred? Well if you actually look at some footage of the original GBNY you’ll notice it had a several licences in it, including Fujifilm and Coca-Cola – again see below – its likely these textures have just been replaced in game because of these licences. Ultimately no harm has been done.

    Oh you’re joking aren’t you? Did someone really throw a fit over something as trivial as this? Or were they just curious as to why this was changed? Shame you had to spell it out. I think it’s incredibly obvious why these would need be changed for release in 2010.

      Curiousity, and rightly so – heck until someone pointed it out we’d not even noticed at work!

    Fair enough. You certainly need to be hawk-eyed to spot something like that on the fly. Also, can’t wait for this. Gunblade was an arcade favourite of mine back in the day.
