Although the event centered around the Super Mario IP, the company’s flagship franchise was bringing in the big guns in terms of games present. The announcement of Super Mario Bros. Wonder, a new 2D platformer, had many fans hooked from the start. However, the reveal of a Super Mario RPG remake had fans elated.

The remake is an official version of the original Super Mario RPG that was initially released on the SNES, featuring a range of overhauls that bring the game to the modern era. This includes remade models of the cast and auxiliary characters from the original. The remake is faithful to the original RPG elements and has a fresh and revitalized look, not only in the graphics but also in the music, which is being rearranged by its original composer, Yoko Shimomura.

Shortly after the announcement of Super Mario RPG, the composer confirmed her role through her Twitter account. She stated that she was putting her heart and soul into arranging the songs, hoping that fans of the original and newcomers alike would enjoy it. The trailer features some of the arranged songs, including a more orchestra-filled version of the opening theme and a jazzy battle theme.

Fans were excited to see her return and were eager to see what new compositions she would bring to the remake.

The announcement of the Super Mario RPG remake has been overwhelmingly well-received. After a long absence, fans are elated to see the game make a comeback. Many believed that a remake would be difficult since Square Enix was the original developer of the game, and there might be issues with re-releasing the game in general. This was evident when the game did not come onto the SNES Switch Online service, with Nintendo likely having been developing this in the background for a while. Regardless, many are excited to return to this RPG with the remake.

The Super Mario RPG remake is set to release on November 17th for the Nintendo Switch.
