Super Mario RPG is back with remade visuals, quality-of-life features and an orchestral soundtrack on Nintendo Switch. Nintendo’s remake of the classic SNES role-playing game is out now – check out the launch trailer to see some of its signature charms.
Based on Square’s Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, the remake offers gorgeous, fully 3D visuals and revamped cutscenes. It also has several new combat features, like perfectly timed hits damaging all enemies, a new Triple Move with all three party members, and much more. There are also powered-up versions of story bosses to fight in the post-game.
You can also check out all the enemies in the Gallery or switch back to the classic soundtrack. Composer Yoko Shimomura’s contemporary arrangements are pretty great, though – head here for a comparison of the new tracks versus the old. Check out more gameplay from the remake here, and stay tuned for subsequent updates.
