‘Super Mario RPG’ Release Date, Platforms & Game Length

Super Mario RPG

An old classic from the Super Nintendo Entertainment System era of video games is making a return on the Nintendo Switch soon. 

This is a full-fledged remake of the SNES game Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars which was Mario and his friend’s first departure in the role-playing sphere before the likes of Paper Mario and the Mario & Luigi series came about. Gameplay-wise, you can expect to participate in various turn-based battles against multiple enemies and explore a colorful world. 

The game’s plot revolves around Mario and his allies needing to repair Star Road after an infamous villain named Smithy and his band of misfits arrive to cause problems. This remake contains better cinematics and graphics but retains the same charm fans loved about the SNES original. Moreover, this game will include several new battle mechanics. 

In the remake, you can damage all enemies via perfect action commands and perform powerful “triple moves.” Additionally, the game has an easier difficulty setting, a way to view data on previously encountered enemies, and new post-game content from a sound player to boss rematches. 

Here’s the official synopsis from Nintendo:

Mario, Bowser, and Peach partner up to repair the wish-granting Star Road in this approachable role-playing adventure

Team up with an oddball group of heroes to save Star Road and stop the troublemaking Smithy Gang. This colorful RPG has updated graphics and cinematics that add even more charm to the unexpected alliance between Mario, Bowser, Peach, and original characters Mallow and Geno. Enter (or revisit) this world of eccentric allies and offbeat enemies in an RPG for everyone.

Jump through a colorful world and give attacks some extra oomph in battle!

Explore the vibrant environments with your party and jump towards your next goal! Run into monsters to enter turn-based battles with your party of three. Press the button at the right time for a satisfying dose of extra damage or helpful guard.

If you’re looking forward to this upcoming game, you’ll be glad to know that you don’t have long to wait before its expected release date.

What platform is Super Mario RPG releasing on?

Super Mario RPG will only be available on the Nintendo Switch. It will launch on November 17th, 2023, just a week before Thanksgiving, allowing players to explore its content before they meet up with their family members or friends. 

Is Super Mario RPG single-player or multiplayer?

The game can only be played in single-player.

Will there be any DLC?

No downloadable content has been announced for Super Mario RPG (so far). However, if the game sells exceptionally well then there’s a slim chance Nintendo may release DLC for it down the pipeline. 

How long is Super Mario RPG?

We don’t know how long it will take to complete this Super Mario RPG remake at this stage. However, the original SNES game took about 17 1/2 hours to beat (or 25 1/2 hours with 100% completion). If there happens to be more post-game content in Super Mario RPG (Switch) than Nintendo’s letting on, then we expect it’ll take fans longer to beat or fully complete this game.
