Mario and sonic first time together

Its no cloudbush but…

What was the first videogame to feature both Mario and Sonic?
Courtesy of some research from TmEE over at Sonic Retro, the answer is in fact:
Mega Turrican (European version).

I noticed something fun in Mega Turrican (European version)… deep in its VRAM there was Mario AND Sonic… I have not seen those 2 in the game… maybe they’re present in the secret level that you can get into after the elevator part (and I’ve not got into that stage yet).

Since I played this recently it stood out. When zoomed out, a section in Turrican 2’s first level is in the form of a humanoid which I thought was a nice detail.

Also if you look real close at the head there’s two little dots which represent eyes.

Duke Nuken ripped sprites from Turrican (and some from Savage)

I was surprised Duke Nukem 1 & 2 on the PC ripped Turrican graphics from the Amiga (and a bit from Savage).
