Super Mario Bros. – In Crossover Fashion!

Remember back in the day, when we’d all be rocking our Nintendo systems?  We’d be playing Mario Bros, Zelda, Mega Man, Castlevania and we’d sit there and say… “What If?”  What if I could play as Link in Super Mario Bros. and easily lay waste to these pesky Koopa Troopa’s?  Back then, that was the stuff that dreams were made of for a Nintendo kid.  I think I once had a dream where I was some iconic Nintendo character battling that evil Mike Tyson in Punchout!  Well, good news as someone has created the idea for our nostalgic needs.  The game is Super Mario Bros., but instead of playing with Mario or Luigi, we get to choose from some iconic Nintendo characters.  Keep in mind, it’s the same game as Super Mario Bros. except that you get to choose awesome characters and the music and gameplay changes slightly to the character you choose.  It’s fresh!  Choose between such classic characters as Link, Simon Belmont, Samus, Mega Man, Bill (from Contra), and even Mario himself.

Sure, it may not seem like a huge deal now.  I mean we get to see Mario and Sonic in spin-offs together which if you conceived the thought twenty years ago, you may have been thrown into an insane asylum.  And not to mention all the various crossovers for the Super Smash Bros. series of games.  But imagine going back in time, and showing your younger self something like this.  I believe our heads would have exploded from pure awesomness.  Go ahead and give it a try.  It’s a fun nostalgic ride for us Nintendo kids!
