Nintendo Direct 2023 is handing out quite a few surprises for us this year, but none could possibly be quite as surprising as a remake of Super Mario RPG. Really old-school fans might remember this gem for the Super NES by its alternate name of Legend of the Seven Stars. Don’t believe me? Then why not check out the trailer for yourself below, and revel in both the 16-bit graphics and the much newer Nintendo Switch graphics. Oh, and don’t forget the music as well.

Super Mario RPG Remake: Details

Nothing like Nintendo Switch graphics to breathe new life into a Super NES classic.

Nintendo is proud to announce their upcoming remake of Super Mario RPG with that trailer above on YouTube. Fans of the original RPG classic for the Super NES won’t feel any disappointment from this trailer. On the contrary, it seems like this remake is practically everything we could ever want for a remake. Especially of an old-school classic like Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars from a grand total of 27 years ago. From updated Nintendo Switch graphics to remade music by the original composer Yoko Shimomura, what’s not to love about it? Plus, if you’ve never had a chance to play this gem during its Super NES days, now you can do so. That is, as soon as this game launches.

Fortunately, that won’t be long. At the end of that Nintendo Direct 2023 trailer, it reveals that Super Mario RPG will make its debut on November 17, 2023. In fact, you can preorder this game right now on the Nintendo eShop for $59.99. At the moment though, the preorder is for the digital version only. You’ll have to wait a bit longer if you want a physical copy. Tune back in to THS later to find out when that will be available when we do.
