    Jay has announced officially that before the next major update of SMBC, he will be releasing an entirely new game on Exploding Rabbit. He's also said that the next major SMBC update will include The Lost Levels and two new characters (actual characters, not just new skins).
    Also, if Jay kept adding new characters every few months, the game would become bloated and unmanageable.

    If you make a game like this then you can say if it would be "bloated and unmanageable" plus I said items. Like one every few months.

    As for a new game then that would be cool.

    Edit: Doesn't have to add the whole world but still. lol

    Ok wow there's a seriously misunderstanding here.

    It's known that ER is working on a new original game, focus is shifting from SMBC to that.

    It's known that a little more work will be done on SMBC here and there and this includes (supposedly) Lost Levels and two new characters.

    You're going to have to direct everyone to where it was said that the NEW GAME would be released BEFORE that update...

    And this is being discussed on Samus' thread.
    Take it easy, remember she has no clearance to complain about it.

    I don't think he ever actually said it would be released before "3.0" (or whatever update will have LL). Also, I think the two new characters are coming before the version with LL (I could be wrong, but that's how I understood it). LL is just supposed to be the next (and final?) major update. The characters could easily come sooner than that.

    Okay, I guess I misunderstood. I thought the idea was that he was going to take a break from SMBC to work on his new game. I apologize for spreading misinformation.

    Well, Jay and Zach are currently taking a break from working on SMBC and are working on getting the new game underway, but it's a much larger project that I suspect won't be done for quite some time (the last time I communicated with Zach about it, he said they're still mainly getting used to the program they'll be using, and this was at most just a couple weeks ago).

    Their current break is only intended to be for a few months, after which they'll come back and focus on SMBC for a bit, and doing things such as getting skins into the game, perhaps some more work on the new characters, more bug fixes, etc.

    But anyway, Samus! Metroids! Bombs! Hyper Beam! :awesome:

    Does Samus still flash rainbows when she gets a starman?

    I always thought it would be fun if she got a temporary Hyper Beam during starman... maybe replace the starman with a metroid sprite?

    BABY for SMBC!!

    I think it would be really cool to see Metroids as enemies in the game, or as an easter egg for Samus skins. There's a line to draw to keep it from becoming different, or altering the core gameplay - but the visual would be nice.

    I'm hoping that in Unity we can seperate the skins in a way that lets them have different functions. It's great the way it is but it's still kind of awkward to play NES samus with the SNES skin. It needs those extra animation sprites.

    This could perhaps be a way of including SMB3 Mario, with SMB3 physics and perhaps shell holding/kicking.
  14. Overlord

    Overlord Level 4: Buzzy Beetle

    World would forever be my favorite :D There should be a Yoshi added to the game lol

    Anyways, what if Metroid's flew in the background? Like it's a Metroid invasion! XD But they don't attack you, you can just see it.

    So am I correct in understanding that the Metroid that appears when you beat the game as Samus is, in fact, THE BABY?

    There hasn't been any other Metroid in the game's franchise that has been a major concern for Samus, sort of annihilation, so I think it is safe to assume yes.

    Just decided to play again due to 2.1, and I noticed that Samus still doesn't have star music. I think this would work really well for her, at least on the 16-bit skins (BTW, great job optimizing the sound emulation, Jay -- I can actually play with 16-bit music now!). And there are Famitracker versions of it floating around too, which could work for the 8-bit skins...
