The classic team-up of the makers of Mario and Final Fantasy, Nintendo & Square (now Square Enix), created Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (AKA スーパーマリオＲＰＧ Sūpā Mario Āru Pī Jī)), one of the most original video games ever.

Released in 1996, Super Mario RPG is a Nintendo-published Super NES video game that was not released officially in Europe, only in USA and Japan. But the crossover was an authentic co-production with 16-bit role playing game features. Final Fantasy: Mario Edition? Almost… A curious fact is that it is the direct precursor of the gameplay and story to the franchises of Mario & Luigi and Paper Mario. The dialogue also offers funny instances just like other games, but the plot elements have unique features to watch out for.
This wonderful retro video game uses isometric perspective in terms of advanced pre-rendered graphics at the time, in the style of Donkey Kong Country. Originally, it is designed as an introduction to beginner role players. The most apparent feature of the game is the appearance of the enemies on the screen. With turn-based combat, you are guaranteed to enjoy enhancing moves through button presses.
The enjoyable charm of this video game makes it even more fascinating. Super Mario RPG has exclusive characters like Mallow or Geno and it is the most original Nintendo crossover you can play on Super Nintendo console today. The mix action with Mario saga elements provide a breathtaking role playing gameplay with superb music and graphics.
