Fans of classic RPGs and the iconic plumber himself will be delighted to learn that Super Mario RPG is making a comeback. The rumors circulating prior to today’s Nintendo Direct have proven true, as Nintendo announced a remake of the beloved SNES classic during the presentation. The updated version of Super Mario RPG will feature “brand-new graphics” and will be available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch starting November 17th.
Super Mario RPG, originally released in 1996, holds a special place in gaming history as the very first Mario-themed RPG. The game follows Mario, Bowser, Princess Peach, and a charming cast of characters as they join forces to defeat the mechanical antagonist, Smithy, and recover the stolen pieces of the Star Road. While the remake retains the core storyline and gameplay mechanics, it incorporates the art style seen in modern Mario games, offering a fresh visual experience for both longtime fans and newcomers alike. Players can expect a blend of platforming elements and engaging turn-based combat to overcome various challenges throughout their adventure.
