Speculations about the possibility of an SNES classic being featured in today’s Nintendo Direct have proven accurate. Super Mario RPG is making a return, boasting “fresh, updated graphics” and slated for a Nintendo Switch release on November 17th.
Launched originally in 1996, Super Mario RPG marked the inception of Mario’s role-playing game journey. The game engages Mario, Bowser, Peach, and their comrades in a mission to defeat a mechanical foe named Smithy and retrieve the stolen fragments of the Star Road. The revamp maintains the art style synonymous with contemporary Mario games. While platforming elements are still present, players will need to master turn-based combat to defeat adversaries.
However, Nintendo’s recent Direct did not solely revolve around this nostalgic gem. The company revealed it’s also remastering Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, another revered title. This news may not come as a surprise considering the overwhelming success of Luigi’s Mansion 3. By updating this 3DS classic for the Switch, Nintendo aims to introduce it to a whole new set of gamers. The release date for the Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon remake is planned for next year.
