New Super Mario Bros. Crossover Coming Soon

Almost two years ago, the team at Exploding Rabbit wowed us all with a freely playable Flash game called Super Mario Bros. Crossover in which characters from other classic Nintendo Entertainment System games jumped into the Mushroom Kingdom for a little Goomba squashing.  In addition to Mario, heroes and heroines such as Mega Man, Link, Samus Aran, and Simon Belmont journeyed from World 1-1 to World 8-4 to rescue the princess.  The game was great fun and wasn't sued out of existence by anyone's legal team, so now a new version is on the way that adds new visual styles, music, and tricks to the action.  New Super NES and Game Boy graphical modes will be available in the next version, as are new characters such as Mario's brother Luigi and Mega Man's counterpart Bass, plus variations on existing characters including Trevor Belmont, Dark Samus, and Proto Man will join the fun.  The new trailer will show you all of this better than I can tell you and is guaranteed to make long-time Nintendo fans smile.  Give it a look and then accept the fact that you'll have to wait a bit before you can play it.  The game is apparently due out sometime before the end of March 2012.  I, for one, can't wait to see it in action.
