Super Mario RPG overview

Super Mario RPG synopsis

Bent on world domination, the nefarious blacksmith Smithy and his band of minions have caused an extraterrestrial sword called Exor to descend upon the Mushroom Kingdom... Arch nemeses Mario and Bowser must set aside their differences to battle the Smithy Gang and recover the seven legendary stars to restore peace to the land.

Super Mario RPG marked the historical collaboration of Squaresoft and Nintendo just prior to their separation at the end of the 16-bit era. A favorite among fans, the game largely manages to carry over the lighter elements of the Mario and Final Fantasy series of games.
