One of the quirkiest role-playing games ever released is now available for purchase via the Nintendo Wii Virtual Console. For a measly 800 Wii Points, you too can be the proud owner of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.
A collaboration between Nintendo and Squaresoft (Square Enix), Super Mario RPG was one of the best Super Nintendo titles of the mid-nineties, blending familiar characters and locations with some pretty deep RPG gameplay not too dissimilar from the earlier entries in the Final Fantasy series. It’s offbeat enough to be a must-own, whether or not you fell in love with the title when it hit store shelves in 1996.
