Super Mario Bros. Crossover 3.0 Released

Version 3.0 of Super Mario Bros. Crossover is finally complete. This is our biggest update so far, and it features an entirely new set of levels from Super Mario Bros. Special. With the inclusion of difficulty-based maps, there are now 192 levels in the game. Some other notable features are a new difficulty system, a new skin selection system, full-screen support, and several new skins. For a full list of changes, see the version history page.

We are also pleased to announce that the game will no longer be locked to our website. You are free to put the game anywhere you like. The only limitation of playing the game on other websites is full-screen mode; it will only work on our site.

Since Super Mario Bros. Crossover is a non-profit game, we added few things to make development worthwhile for us. There is now a news feed in the game, and there’s also a counter related to our campaign to accelerate the development of Super Retro Squad. I understand that some people may not like these changes, but they are very helpful for us, and they only appear on the title screen.

This game has gotten bigger than I ever thought it would, and much of that is thanks to the help of Zach Robinson and Blaine Hanna. I now wish to inform people that it is time for me to move on, so I will no longer be playing a large role in the development of this game. Blaine will now be the lead developer, and I will be spending nearly all of my time on Super Retro Squad.

More levels and skins will certainly be added to the game in the future, but I would probably consider this the last major release. As Super Retro Squad gets further along in development, it will be more difficult for any team members to devote time to this free game when it is filled with intellectual property that we do not own.

I would like to take a moment to thank everyone for making Super Mario Bros. Crossover a huge success. The huge positive response that this game received has changed my life, and it made it possible for me to form a development team and turn Exploding Rabbit into a production studio. I can never thank you enough for that.

Super Mario Bros. Crossover is just the beginning. Exploding Rabbit is now in a position to make real games. Please check out this video of Super Retro Squad to see what we’ve been doing, and consider helping us to accelerate development of the game.

Thanks again for your support, and I hope you enjoy Super Mario Bros. Crossover 3.0!

    Hey. If You Can Keep Updating Super Mario Bros. Crossover After You Finish Super Retro Squad, I’ll Stay On Here And Play The Updated Versions. Also, Can You Make A Demo Of Super Retro Squad Online?

  • MinecraftOnPS4

    No, sadly. This game could not be run under any emulator because it uses Flash and Unity. It could be run on new consoles as Homebrew. But that takes A LOT of work.

  • Zachary Gay

    Might I suggest the inclusion of Scrooge McDuck at some point in the future? Also, Rash or Zitz from Battletoads would be awesome.

    Right click on the page(not the game screen) and click on View page source, then find the .swf thingy. Select the whole link and open it as a new tab.

    If you have time or you want to update this game, I would like you to:
    1. Add a sound test. I like the themes, especially these from Rockman 10.
    2. Add Sonic the Hedgehog as playable character.
    3. Fix the SNES skin and music because it was damn slow and freeze the computer.
    Anyway, I like this game. Thanks to you that it made my day. Exploding Rabbit rocks!

  • Anderson Carneiro

    Sorry for the bad english :(

  • Lucas Rafael

    I think if you changed the bosses (bowser) by others, with each character, can be different the boss battles, an exemple: with Mega Man, the first boss can be Gutsman.

  • Zain
