What is Super Mario RPG (2023)?

Super Mario RPG is a delightful and unique game that combines the beloved Mario universe with the role-playing game (RPG) genre. In this game, players take on the role of Mario, the iconic plumber, on a whimsical quest to rescue Princess Peach and restore the wish-granting Star Road. The adventure takes an unexpected turn when an even greater threat, Exor the Giant Sword, crashes down and shatters the Star Road, plunging the world into chaos.

As players explore this enchanting world, they’ll encounter a diverse cast of characters, including the mysterious Geno and the friendly Mallow, who will join Mario in his mission to stop the sinister Smithy Gang. The game’s journey leads players through enchanting landscapes like labyrinthine forests, spooky sewers, and fast-flowing rivers as they search for scattered Star Road pieces to bring peace back to their world.

Super Mario RPG features turn-based battles that require precise timing through Action Commands to maximize damage or reduce incoming damage. Successfully executing these commands fills the Action Gauge, allowing players to unleash powerful Triple Moves unique to their party composition. With a charming mix of humor, adventure, and tactical combat, this game is a delightful introduction to both the Mario and RPG genres for newcomers. So, gear up and join Mario and his unlikely group of heroes to save the Star Road and make wishes come true once again!

“Positively Peachy”

Super Mario RPG is a faithful remake of the 1996 classic, which adds several new gameplay features and some welcome quality-of-life updates. While the revisioned graphics, sound, and music are amazing, the storytelling is still very basic with a challenge that is somehow easier than the Super Nintendo original. However, if you can stomach the price, which is a bit high considering the overall package, there’s still a lot of fun to be had here.
