Guild Wars 2 April Fools 2013 is going to be big.

Scavenging information from all over the place. It sounds like Guild Wars 2 April fools event is going to be lots of fun.

The above video is the chip tune music you will be greeted to when logging into the character selection screen on 1st of April.



So far, we know that a new box has appeared in Rata Sum (thanks to Alunae)

There's also this coin I found in game, which links the Super Adventure Box to what we see in Rata Sum

And a new tab has appeared under hero achievements for Super Adventure Box.

It mentions babbles, which we've seen in this thread.

We also know this is likely a jump puzzle, or at least made by our favorite designer (brownie points), /user/Ragged_Scrybe. Why?

"...a game within a game". The coins seem to hint at this!

There are also weapons that seem to be associated with this. (thanks Grinds)

And, overall, it seems to be pointing to an 8-bit, game within a game theme.

Personally, I'm excited as can be. I can't wait to tear into this!

Looks like it's going to be Mario/NES themed with a huge jumping puzzle with pixel weapon rewards such as this.

A Nintendo controller.

Moto.

    It would just be sad if it disappeared shortly afterwards until next year!

    I love these guys. image

     

    So... it's looking like, just maybe, April Fools Day could turn into a major holiday event day in GW2, replacing other spring themed events from GW1? (I forget what happened this time of year...)

    All they have to do is announce server merge on april fools day, you know how many "I told you so threads." would pop up, it'd be amusing.

     

    Not only threads but I already know the few that'd post in those threads that would state and I quote "LMAOOO." "LOL" "hahahaha."  "I knew this game would fail hahahahaha image"

     

    On topic: That's interesting though Azure.

    I might get banned for this. - Rizel Star.

    I'm not afraid to tell trolls what they [need] to hear, even if that means for me to have an forced absence afterwards.

    P2P LOGIC = If it's P2P it means longevity, overall better game, and THE BEST SUPPORT EVER!!!!!(Which has been rinsed and repeated about a thousand times)

    Common Sense Logic = P2P logic is no better than F2P Logic.

    I just got the whole reason behind the whole April fools joke.

    After those who didn’t like jumping puzzles complained that they rather play Guild Wars 2 and not Mario.

    Anet is giving them Mario.

    Well played Anet.

    I think they learned from Karka event well enough :)

    Yep.  Very much Mario.  The Asura creator of the box itself is "Moto", a hint at Miomoto, and the control console is a giant Super Nes controller.    So yes, we'll get to have Mario in Guild Wars 2 for April Fools.
