Mega Man powers up, enters the mushroom kingdom


Sitting in the USA archives of online downloadable content for Mega Man: Powered Up is a level entitled SMB World 1-1. The title pretty much says it all. Someone created the first level of Super Mario Brothers with the Mega Man Powered Up’s construction mode.


And it’s actually pretty good. Since you can’t hit blocks with your head the creator placed items like coins, now useless point orbs and mushrooms, represented by life power-ups, on top of blocks. The hidden 1up mushroom is in the stage too, but it isn’t placed in an invisible block. Take a look at the work in the video below and notice the clever use of the flag.




This isn’t the only Super Mario Brothers stage recreated with Mega Man: Powered Up's construction mode. Other users made levels 1-2, 1-3 and 1-4. Level 1-4 is notable because it strips Mega Man of his Mega Buster. You play as pre-powered up Mega Man who only has a kick attack and a single notch in your life bar. If you grab the life power up, placed where a mushroom used to be, you get a second hit. Clever rendition!
