Super Mario Bros. Crossover 3.0 Delayed

Super Mario Bros. Crossover 3.0 is delayed, but I announce some of the new features that are coming.

We won’t be able to get the new version of Super Mario Bros. Crossover done by June 30th. I’m sorry! In order to make up for this disappointing news, let me show you some cool new features coming to version 3.0.

Improved Skin Selection

Changing skins in previous versions of the game was a chore, and many people didn’t even know it was possible. In version 3.0, it’s very easy. Whenever you select a character, you’ll now see a skin selection screen like the one below.

Changing map skins was also difficult and was hidden away in a menu. Now, you can do it directly on the character select screen.

The map skin selection menu shows you a preview of what each skin looks like before you select it.

Revamped Difficulty Settings

The difficulty settings in previous versions didn’t work well. They either made the game too easy or too hard, and there was no customization. Now, all of the options for difficulty can be adjusted separately, so you can choose exactly how you want to play the game.

We also finally got around to adding one of the most requested features:


Cheats are always a fun way to change the experience of the game. We added a few new ones that have been requested for a while. Here is one of my personal favorites:

It’s really fun on water levels.

And I realize that people don’t want to have to unlock the cheats by playing through the game every time, so we added a simple way to unlock them. Retro gamers should be able to figure out how to do it.

And of course, there’s also all of the new stuff shown in the trailer, which includes 32 new levels and easy/hard versions of every level. So basically, there are 192 levels in the game.

Why it was Delayed

Even with all of these new features, we would have had the game done in time if we weren’t working on Super Retro Squad at the same time. When we release version 3.0, we’re also going to be releasing some new information about Super Retro Squad. We want people to think of Super Retro Squad when they think about Super Mario Bros. Crossover, so we’re working on some different ways to make that happen.

This release is a big deal for us, so we want to make sure we take the time to get it right. Please be patient and look forward to it. I can personally tell you that this version of the game is magnitudes better than the previous versions. My favorite new feature is the hard versions of levels. You will die a lot, but don’t worry… we provide plenty of extra lives for you!

I don’t like giving specific dates because it’s stressful to get the game done in time, but I am pretty sure it will be out before the end of July. Please accept my sincerest apologies and understand that this delay is for the best. Thanks for your understanding!

  1. idea for characters…. by a future version: kirby…pikachu….zero(megaman skin)…the character of adventure island… and or yoshi. pardon me… I not speak english very well.. I speak spanish… good job friends no stop of work, they are my heros

  2. Dude add a level creator! if there are different levels then there needs too be level creator!

  3. I hope I’m not the one who’s delaying the update. If I am, just push the thing out (once everything else is done of course). I think you’ll get away with it.

  4. But I play hacked versions so why not complete the game to do it? Also I like your games and icon ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. The new skin-selection screens look a ton more streamlined, and I really like the new settings breakdown. As much as I appreciate authenticity, 3 lives kind of limits my willingness to take the risk of playing a random character in the tougher worlds. Looking forward to all the new levels!

  6. Jay is not your fault you just what atrasaste a bit more to improve the game and get it right

  7. make sure u add yoshi as a playable character or a rideable character in te game. add him at some point

  8. If you ask me, it being done this month would be way faster than I expected so the delay is fine with me.

  9. No worries Jay! Your the man for doing all this real fans wouldn’t be upset but would only support!

  10. well, i am a bit unhappy about this delay, but really, just take your time to make this awesome game! ๐Ÿ˜€

  11. When the update is released, will you post on the wiki the difficulty settings for Very Easy, Easy, etc. That is, tell us which difficulty settings to choose to match the previous difficulty levels.

  12. It’s delayed? THIS SUCKS! I WANT MY MONEY BACK! What’s that? I didn’t pay a dime? Oooooooooohhh…

    But seriously, don’t worry about meeting a deadline on this. A delayed game is only delayed until it’s released. A rushed game sucks forever.

  13. I’m not that disappointed, but I really don’t get disappointed often. It’s probably because I don’t normally sit around waiting for things. I find something else to occupy my time, most of time being Netflix or Hulu. P.S. Don’t rush it. As much as people put pressure on you, never take advice from angry commenters.

  14. Blah.. kinda sucks, but oh well. My own fault really for anticipating the release as much as I have been. ๐Ÿ™‚
    That said, I’m content with the choice to not push something out there just for sake of doing so and instead taking time to make sure everything is working as it should be.

    1. NO! Q-BERT SUUUUUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2. dude shut the fuck up q bert is completely unable to be in an nes game like mario it would be hard and 2nd time ive said it stop talkin in fucking caps its for dumbasses

  15. In this time if you have to report the release it is possible to add coop , I love to play with some one and not alone, I dream about this a full complete mario coop game on pc ๐Ÿ˜€

    Thanks in advance. !!

    1. dude what is wrong with u?!!

      coop op in super mario crossover is COMPLETELY inpossible
      durr u cant port it so

      1. why its not possible, look at SMBX its coop and its better when it’s coop you can play with your friends !!

        If you make allusions with 2 characters different then make two players with 2 color different on the same kind.

        Or Mario with luigi, or Samus Normal and Dark Samus thats it !!

        1. Nope. Wrong. Super Mario Bros X was a Windows game. This is a Flash game. They are completly different. So you’re wrong. Co-Op is completely out of the question and is impossible. It’s like asking for Downloadable Content on a calculator, or an MMO on Atari 2600. It’s a pretty stupid and unreasonable request and you clearly don’t know how these things work.

          1. Dude, it’s possible. You can do it on Super Smash Flash. Also, JoyToKey could make it a whole lot easier. (see “play with a gamepad”)

          2. Thanks Dude !! I never know about this game I love alot this one now !

            And now Jay ear us and do Co-op for the update please, I saw your message on Twitter you loved Borderland 2 on coop,

            If you want more people downloading your game make it for multiplayer and more people want to share your game for playing with friends.

            For coop add Lan Network drop in and drop out !! (Like NSMBU)

            (Why I say Lan Network, because when player is out of the 1st screen window of the 1st player the camera doesnt need to follow both caracther and less buggy).

          3. actually, the coop controls would be really hard to decide since it’s all on ONE keyboard, so PROBABLY NO WAY!

    1. PLEASE for the love of GOD everyone wants kirby in the game so
      STOP ASKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          1. The only power-up he/she would get from an enemy is the hammer one from the Hammer Bro. and the rest of the enemies don’t have any special powers. The other powers are the ones that appear in “?” boxes, and Kirby is supposed to get them from enemies, not from collectibles.

          2. There’s actually a thread on the forum with posts from at least one of the developers explaining how this would work. So not only could it be possible, but it’s something that has at least been considered. Feel free to actually looking into things before posting next time.

          3. Wait… a kirby MAP! which will have… waddle dee’s,waddle doo’s, brontos and other kirby enemies to give him powers!!

          4. I wouldn’t mind Kirby’s powers coming from ? blocks. Also, Kirby could get the Needle ability from Spiny.

          5. he could also inhale one of those Lava bubles for fire, and wing from a Paratroopa. (i’m just letting loose ideas here.) his flight would have to be limited though, because he would make Bowser battles comepletly pointless.

    2. you would think that since they made this game, they would’ve at least added our favorite pink puffball in there? (I love Kirby)

  16. I haven’t been this disappointed by a delay since Smash Bros. Brawl, and that blew my mind when I played it. That just goes to show how worth it the wait is gonna be ๐Ÿ˜€

  17. Honestly, this is good news for me. Now I won’t waste homework-time
    devouring this game, which I most assuredly will do once it comes out.

  18. I am a little sad about the delay, but I am glad to see some new features, and I hope you will let us know when (and only when) the game will be released (I mean update us when it happens)

  19. well, sucks to be us. No biggie, Jay. It’s all free and with your best intent, so all I can do is wait and support your projects.
