Mario, Ryu and Bob Too: Super Mario Crossover 2 Out

By Craig Pearson on February 9th, 2012.

Proing!
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.

You now have the Mario music in your head.
If you’re going to infringe on copyright, you might infringe on all the copyrights at the same time. That way you can keep track of who’s taking you to court.

I Owe U Nothing: Super Mario Bros Crossover

By Kieron Gillen on April 28th, 2010.

80s Spectrum one! Jet Set Willy! The guy from Nodes of Yesod! Monty Mole! That Guy from Dun Darach! One of the Lords of Midnight! The Gooey Blob!

This caught Mr Chalupa’s eye, and I thank him for bring it to mine. Super Mario Bros Crossover is – as the name suggests – a bastard-pop mash-up where you play six NES-era characters in the original Super Mario Bros, selecting who you’ll control on each life. Efficiently done, though I’m surprised they didn’t make each character’s life be a single life, forcing you to select other ones. Equally, being very much in the gray area, I suspect you should – er – play it quickly if you want to. Mostly though, being a Brit of a certain age – as in, without period NES experience – I didn’t have a clue who certain characters were, and had to sort of deduce that the brown-smudge was probably the guy from Castlevania. Don’t select him though. He’s rubbish. And don’t select Link because he’s eminently punchable. Play here.
