Didn’t really see that one coming! Jay Pavlina, the dude known pretty much exclusively for his 8-bit character mashup Super Mario Bros. Crossover, has announced via the above trailer that the tank from NES game Blaster Master is coming to the game! The tank, who is apparently named SOPHIA THE 3RD, all about firing homing missles and climbing on walls in gravity-defying ways.
Jay says SOPHIA will be added to the game on or around November 29th, with a few little extras thrown in. In the meantime, you can check out an in-depth discussion of Super Mario Bros. Crossover (as well as a bunch of other awesome fan games) on last week’s episode of Bytejacker: http://www.bytejacker.com/episodes/106
