Super Mario RPG review (Nintendo Switch): Colorful, charming and chock-full of humor - Beyond Pixels

The 1996 SNES classic returns on Nintendo Switch. There's lots of new aesthetics and features, but still lots of nostalgia as well. Is the weirdly funny and seemingly off-brand game worth its money in 2023?

Super Mario RPG Needs To Be More Than a 1:1 Remake

Super Mario RPG's upcoming remake needs to maintain the classic game as much as possible, but new content and extra bosses would make it even better.

A true sequel would be great bring back Square again use Mellow and Gino in a new story.

The only thing I might add in 1 more party member.

I always felt like "5" in the original was such a weird choice. All the UI had slots for 6 characters. c

On top of that, there are 3 canon Mario characters(Mario, Bowser, Peach), but 2 new ones in Mallow and Geno. I can't help but think there was supposed to be a third that was cut for time.(Croco or Johnny Jones perhaps)

FFIV & FFV had 5 party members onscreen

Not a weird design choice

ff5 had four members onscreen. not 5

4 did, yes. but it was the only mainline with five party members on the screen.

Nebaku241d ago

Wasn't what I said. I'm talking about overall amount of party members, not how many are on screen.

I don't think so. I think the graphical upgrade is good enough

If you watched the announcement trailer for more than 10 seconds you'd realize its not 1:1.

Nebaku241d ago

How so? Visually, it's as 1:1 as you can humanly get. They literally recreated scenes part for part in full 3d.

As for gameplay, the changes we can see are so incredibly minor. Joystick movement as opposed to d-pad, some chain boosts added during battle, etc.

There is a limit break-style gauge shown in the battles...


The One Change Nintendo Should Make To Super Mario RPG

This game needs to change, because 40 percent of the playable characters in it kind of suck.
