Review: Super Mario RPG is a lovingly crafted update of an all-time classic

Switch’s Mario RPG feels like a love letter to the original game. Fans of the 1996 version will be delighted by the care that’s gone into recreating the SNES title scene-for-scene. For everyone else, this remains a charming RPG adventure well worth discovering.

  • One of the best RPGs of the 90s
  • Some of the most memorable characters and scenarios in Mario
  • Does an amazing job of recreating the look and feel of the original
  • Battle additions and QoL improvements are welcome
  • Mini-games feel dated
