Gamer’s Edition of Guinness World Records 2018 features @SonicFox5000!

With his victory at the Injustice 2 Pro Series finals, Echo Fox SonicFox has returned to glory as the world’s best player for Netherrealm Studios titles! His previous achievements at other IPS qualifiers, such as Viennality and Summer Jam, built a road of diamond that would guide Sonic to the crystalline trophy that awaited him in Los Angeles last weekend.

Of course, his achievements haven’t stopped there! Today, Sonic broke the news that he’d been featured in the Gamer’s Edition of the 2018 Guinness World Records!

He’d previously skyrocketed his way into the Guinness Records for dominating Injustice 1 and Mortal Kombat X since the midpoint of the decade, but to continue to attain this status is nevertheless a remarkable achievement matched only by very few others!

In his Twitter post above, you see images of SonicFox and his former teammate from Critical Reaction, Patrick Kelly, posing in costumes resembling the two most recognized heroes in the DC Universe: Batman and Superman. In the second image to the upper right, you see Sonic bearing the plaque that marks his entrance into the 2018 Guinness Records!

Below is a brief description detailing the achievement that beckoned the Fox back into the hall of fame, taken from their official website:
