One day, while visiting Mario, Princess Toadstool was picking flowers in the garden ...
Suddenly, out of nowhere, Bowser appeared and grabbed the Princess again! (Like you'd expect anyone else to?) Mario, hearing Toadstool's scream for help, sped off alone toward Bowser's Keep. After Mario trounced Bowser for the millionth time (this time they fought on one of Bowser's chandeliers), everyone felt Bowser's Keep beginning to shake!
A HUGE sword crashed into Bowser's Keep! What's gonna happen now?

Super Mario RPG is a lot of fun to play. The first Mario game to be an RPG is really saying something about the popularity of RPG's. It's a little weird at first, but once you get used to it, it's a lot of fun. There are a lot of special moves to learn and a lot of bad guys that need killing. Super Mario RPG is a lot of fun if you are a fan of RPG's or Mario. If you fall into that criteria, and chances are you do, then check this game out.
Super Mario RPG is more hands on than other RPGs. You HAVE to learn how to time attacks or you will find the game very difficult. You can also jump in Mario fashion around the towns/houses/dungeons. Toad will teach you everything you need to know.
