You can view the week one icons below:
Super Mario RPG was originally released in 1996 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System/Super Famicom and was notably developed by a pre-merger Squaresoft. It produced a large cult following over the last several years, as fans of the game campaigned for party member Geno to appear as a playable character in Super Smash Bros.
Yoko Shimomura will be in charge of this new soundtrack, who was the initial composer for the game on SNES. Shimomura shared, “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!”
In this remake, timing all attacks ideally will affect enemies on the field. Successfully performing action commands will fill the Action Gauge, eventually initiating a three-character Triple Move. This alters depending on your party setup, encouraging combo variation.
Once players beat the game, they can rechallenge some bosses, except they’re stronger than their initial showings. Further, players will be able to swap between the original and newly arranged soundtracks at any time they desire.
Super Mario RPG will launch for Nintendo Switch on November 17, 2023. Pre-orders are now available.
