We kick off a new season of RPG Backtrack by revisiting the game from the first episode that debuted nearly sixteen years ago! That’s right, we are old, and this is a celebration of Super Mario RPG, with guests Mike Apps and Ryan Costa.
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
An evil force descends upon the land, shrouding all in darkness. It is Smithy, and he plans to rule the world through the magical seven stars. It’s up to Mario, Princess Toadstool, new friends, and even some old enemies, to stop this menace before it destroys the kingdom!
Nintendo keeps putting Mario into the RPG realm, so it’s time to catch up with the 3DS installments that aren’t remakes. It’s also time to reflect a bit on the very first time Mario entered an RPG.
The RPG Backtrack starts our pilot episode with discussion of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.
