Replay – Super Mario RPG: Legend Of The Seven Stars

by Wade Wojcik on Aug 22, 2015 at 03:00 AM

1996 was a great year for Mario fans. We saw the release of Super Mario 64 and Mario Kart 64 among a strong lineup of other Nintendo games. But earlier in that year, Square (now Square-Enix) gave Super Nintendo owners one of the most beloved RPGs of that generation.

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars was the first role-playing game in the series, bringing turn-based battle sequences and 3D adventuring to the Mushroom Kingdom. And though it doesn’t have a direct sequel, Paper Mario is widely regarded as its spiritual successor. 

Join Andrew Reiner, Brian Shea, Kyle Hilliard, and Ben Reeves as they dive into this revered SNES game, all while providing meaningful and insightful commentary. Make sure you stick around for the second segment, it’s probably my favorite one this year.
