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!

  2. I’ve been checking this site about 5 times a day for the last week. It looks like there’s another delay. Not that I’m complaining; it will be ready when it’s ready. I will continue to refresh this page constantly though.

  3. today that day is … July 31 and the game is still not up upload it now! you suck jay

  4. If Jay rushes with the release, the game will turn out very bad, but since he delayed it, it will be very good.

  5. Oh dear, more unforeseen delays past the whole ‘end of July’ thing?
    Or will it be done tomorrow or the day after? 😛 I can’t help but be impatient.

    1. dicen en los foros que es porque le hemos dado muchas ideas y es verdad dejen ya de decirles ideas para smbc 3.0

  6. know what would be better than a super mario bros crossover? A LEGEND OF ZELDA CROSSOVER!

  7. Adding Kirby as a character will not do, but we can still make a map and enemy set for Kirby’s Dream Land.

  8. I love this, can’t wait also I’ll probably use either the real simple one or the zelda one ^___^

  9. Take as much time as you need, it’s a big release to make an already awesome game even more awesome, so I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait as you haven’t disappointed in the past.

    1. There is an old version of Super Mario Bros. Crossover simulating the atari, and it seems that yes, they are adding the skin back.

  10. I am a big fan of SMB. Crossover and regret that will be decided later but Jay and Super Mario Bros Crossover or Super Retro Squad!!!!!!!!!

  11. Ok these are the characters that are possible enough to fit in Super Mario Bros Crossover 3.

    Kunio (Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari) (River City Ransom EX)
    Kirby (Kirby’s Adventure) (Kirby’s Dream Land) (Kirby Super Star)

    Let’s all show Exploding Rabbit how we want Kunio and Kirby to be Added!!
    By doing Comments.
    You can also vote for your characters that you want.
    Pleeeaaase Vote because we need new characters!

  12. To quote the Qur’an– “Better a good game delayed than a shitty game rushed.”

  13. I was hoping for it to be released around last month, but seeing that it was delayed due to working Super Retro Squad, I’m not gonna complain. Hope you guys can get it done soon. 😉

  14. I am really dissapointed it was delayed but I know that you are working on another awesome game so I will really be patient since I really don’t know much of a animators life. Best wishes for you Jay! Good luck with Super Retro Squad!

  15. Dude no worry about it we can all wait just like were waiting for Super Smash Bros. for WiiU and 3DS so don’t worry about it, also take a break from your work If you need to. Lightsaber02 out.

  16. les recuerdo que a nadie le importa 2 mierdas el “super retro squad” por el contrario de Super Mario Bros crossover que todo el mundo lo espera con ancias, primero terminen SMBC y despues ya saquen Retro Squad o esa madre que a nadie le importa

    1. (Translated from Google Translate)-I remind you that nobody cares two shits the “super retro squad” instead of Super Mario Bros crossover that everyone looks ances, SMBC finish first and then take out and Retro Squad or the mother who nobody cares

    2. I can give a better translation: “I remind you that nobody cares/gives two shits about ‘Super Retro Squad’, but instead [they care] about Super Mario Crossover which everyone waits with anticipation/yearning. First, you should finish SMBC, and then you [should] work on Retro Squad or some other shit that no one cares about.”

      Quite rude.

  17. The Lost Levels, appeared in the SNES game Super Mario All Stars. The Special version is very unique and its something I haven’t played before, so I’m looking forward to it.

    The trailer made it look, as though there were elements of SMB2, in this game. Are there, or were those skins? Are you able to pick-up items and throw them, like in SMB2? Can you play as the Princess and hover, like in SMB2?

    I know, the Original Special version, on the Sharp X1 computer was 1 Player, and did not feature Luigi, so this is a real improvement upon the original, since it does include Luigi. Are there any plans for a 2 Player version of the game?

    I really like the addition of full screen. It makes it feel far more authentic. Will there be a published list of Cheat Codes or will we get codes as we complete sections of the game?

    I think you’ve done a fantastic job, and I’m really looking forward to playing the game.

  18. I NEED THE GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. I understand this delay, I am glad to know this new features. I really like this project. It all started with characters of other games and then it got upgraded and it was where we could choose the graphics we wanted and we could change skin maps and character skins like with Version 2.0 it expanded alot more and I really like it is just so cool! Then we have special world and much more new graphics and
