Super Mario RPG Remake

After some speculation, Nintendo has confirmed the return of a classic favorite. The company just announced a reimagined version of the 1996 Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) game – Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Mark your calendars, as this remake is set to hit Nintendo Switch on November 17th.

Nintendo pulled back the curtain on the remade game during a recent Nintendo Direct, treating viewers to a thrilling glimpse of the game via a brand-new trailer.

If you can’t wait to get your hands on it, the game is already available for pre-order on the Nintendo eShop, priced at $59.99 USD. The synopsis promises a return to the rich, colorful world of the original game with a few exciting updates:

In this immersive role-playing adventure, familiar faces Mario, Bowser, and Peach unite to restore the magical Star Road. The player is tasked with marshaling an unusual band of heroes, including the quirky duo Mallow and Geno, to thwart the mischief of the Smithy Gang and save Star Road.

This vibrant RPG boasts enhanced graphics and cinematics, further heightening the charm of the odd partnership between Mario, Bowser, Peach, and the unique characters. Whether you’re entering this eccentric world for the first time or reminiscing about the original, this RPG has something for everyone.

Your party of three can run into monsters and give their attacks some extra power in battle by timing button presses perfectly. This unique mechanic adds another layer of engagement and satisfaction to the game.

While the original Super Mario RPG was a joint effort by Square Enix and Nintendo, the remake appears to be a purely in-house project.
