Virtual Console Gets Super Mario RPG

So I might have a reason to get the Wii going again. Let me sidestep the crude joke you were no doubt going to insert into that thought and say that Super Mario RPG has landed on the Virtual Console as of Labor Day. That’s yesterday, if you are too lazy to look at a calendar.

Super Mario RPG is no doubt one of the finest games I have ever played, so this news thrills me like no other. It’s a great combination of platforming and RPG tropes, and at the time of its release, I had never really played another game like it.

Do yourself a favor and get it, for the love of things holy and bright. How many of you have played this game before? Thoughts?

  1. I have a friend who played this and praised it about as much as you have. I WOULD get it but I have no Wii Points 🙁

  2. Yeah, what’s wild is that I haven’t played the game in a long time. I’ll barely remember much of what to do or where to go.

  3. I’ve got a SNES and a local gamestore that I think still has an original copy. I might go pick that up sometime. If all else fails at least I can get some wii points and the virtual console version.
