When it comes to first stages in video games, Green Hill Zone is about on the level as Super Mario Bros. 1-1 and has followed Sonic the Hedgehog to several appearances. It’s been done again and again, but it’s still expected and the most fitting representation of the character and series. Seeing this one in Brawl blew everyone’s mind, so have a blast from two kinds of pasts with its inclusion in the Smash Blog.
 


 
It’ll be interesting to see how the line up of Sonic’s friends that run through the background changes now that Knuckles is an Assist Trophy. Other than that it’s business as usual with collapsing floors and that dang checkpoint marker turning up again (of all places) to knock you around.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
