Super Mario RPG Remake

Given that we seem to be in the final stages of the Switch’s life, yesterday’s Nintendo Direct was perhaps a bit more packed than most would have expected. A number of Mario-related announcements dominated a bulk of the show, many of which stood out, and one of those that has turned quite a few heads is the upcoming ground-up remake of Super Mario RPG.

Based on what was shown in its trailer, it looks like the remake is going to faithfully recreate the beloved SNES classic while also significantly updating its visuals. And it seems that’s not the only way it’ll stay true to the game it’s attempting to modernize.

Yoko Shimomura, the acclaimed composer who composed the soundtrack of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars back in the day, will be returning in the same capacity for the remake. She confirmed the news in a Twitter post published shortly after the remake was officially announced.

“I am in charge of the music for the remake version of Super Mario RPG announced at the Nintendo Direct today,” Shimomura wrote. “I put all my heart into arranging all the songs, hoping that both the fans of the original and those playing for the first time can enjoy it! Stay tuned for more news.”

Super Mario RPG is set to launch for the Nintendo Switch on November 17.

On top of the RPG remake, Nintendo also announced Super Mario Bros. Wonder at its recent Direct, a new mainline 2D sidescrolling Mario game. Meanwhile, the company also announced a new game starring Princess Peach as the main character, and a Switch remaster of 3DS title Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon.
