News Super Mario Bros. Crossover 2.0 Released

Super Mario Bros. Crossover gets skinnable graphics and a new power-up system.

    Something I meant to ask a while ago but forgot, will we at least have everything currently shown in the skin templates by the time you're finished working on Crossover (Rush Marine, Rush Jet, Treble Boost, Magma Bazooka, red coin and yoshi egg challenges, playable Jason, Link's ladder, and Mario's ability to hold shells), or are their fates essentially up in the air at the moment?

    Thinking about it, Crossover really is nearing a state where I would be content with it no longer being in development. Skins really help flesh out the character roster, and make levels seem fresh and new (which is awesome considering it's a game that's as old as I am). I can really only think of a couple characters I'd want that skins couldn't really give us, the above features in question, and possibly multiplayer. I don't expect all of that, but I can't really think of much else that the game needs. It's already really close to what I would call "complete".

    Jay and Ryuza, you guys have done an incredible job with this game!

    Just wanted to say how incredible this update is. It feels so much more like I'm playing the games the characters are from, it's incredible. And the fact that you can only kill enemies by methods the characters actually killed enemies in their games (and not by Mario methods) makes it much more challenging and immersive. Well done, Jay!

    I agree in all meanings of the word.

    Actually it is. The text matches whatever skin is currently set, and that is decided at random. The ER logo as mentioned before is not. So you cannot choose the skin for the loading screen, but it is skinnable. So ha.

    → I meant the screen where Mario walks and with a big counter of coins at the middle of the screen. So hey.

    That is gray territory right there. I didn't consider the loading screen to be part of the game. The game is a separate file that the preloader downloads. So ho.

    You should all thank me for handling ALL OF THE YOUTUBE COMMENTS when the trailer came out. I had to deal with a bunch of idiots, but it turned out O.K. I think I even made Jay more money by encouraging them to donate, since they all say "TAKE MY MONEY, AND MY BABY" or some crap like that.

    I can't remember if I actually had that dream or not.

    But if I did it's hardly prophetic. Mega Man had the moon jump way back in the 1.0 and 1.1 days, so I already knew how he functioned without the Rush Coil.

    But I said double jump, meaning two jumps (I never use it to refer to a really high jump). Maybe I guessed Bass just a little bit?

    Oh right Mega Man has got a high jump, not double. Completely forgot.

    So has the upcoming update have an official version number? Is it 2.5 or something else?

    It will likely be 2.1.

    Jay just posted on Twitter that the update will be bigger than expected. Does this mean more skins and how this affect the release date?

    We still expect to have it out in time for Christmas. As for the nature of the update, there are quite a few skins being added. This update is going to be pretty awesome. :)

    Awesome sauce! Btw, did the Alchemy release help with the music emulation?

    Do you know how many of these skins without spoiling who they are are female?

    Not including Samus (she's already female), the update will include at least 3 new female skins, possibly a couple more. :)

    I'm kind of hoping "bigger" means more kinds of stuff rather than just more skins. But whatever, it's all good.

    Well skins equals a lot of testing, respriting, the addition of music, and other adjustments.

    There might be more than skins but it might just be more work than they anticipated. I wouldn't get my hopes up :\
