As a fan of RPG’s in general Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars holds a special place in my heart. The premise of Mario meeting the gameplay style of games like Final Fantasy is fantastic and also spawned successor series like The Mario and Luigi series as well as Paper Mario.
The often forgotten gem was released for the SNES in May of 1996. Developed by Square under the watchful eye of Miyamoto, it follows Mario as he seeks to take down Smithy, the newly introduced villain has stolen the seven pieces of star road. Mario will have to enlist multiple party members, including Bowser in order to do so.
If you happened to miss out on this game in its prime you can pick it up on the virtual console starting tomorrow for $7.99. As always thanks for reading and let me know what you think in the comments.
