Fanfiction often has surprising visits from other fictional places, although the fact that I’m here and not writing on that other lovely PC gaming site means it happens in real-life as well. Super Mario Bros Crossover 2.0 is the gaming equivalent of fanfiction, bringing characters from all over the Nintendo universe and having an office party with them in the Mario world.
How would Simon from Castlevania make it in the world of Goomba’s and Koopa Troopas? Well he’d obviously whip them into a rather tasty mushroom and turtle soup. Megaman’s arm blasters cooks them in their shells, Link prods them with his silly little pointy sword. Just like when I came into RPS and brought my PC Gamer ‘tude with me. I hugged those cold, mean RPS guys with all the strength I could muster. With the original trailer showing off a few more characters than the game has in the menu screens, I expect there’s some unlockable fun to be had.
Here’s the trailer once again to compare to the finished thing.
