Episode 5 – Super Mario RPG

It’s-a me, Mario!  Chris and Katie are back and this time it’s to jump into the adventures of the world’s most popular plumber as he makes his first foray into a Role-Playing Game!

In this extra-long special episode, our hosts talk about our team of heroes (Mario, Bowser, Peach, and new additions Mallow and Geno) as they work to defeat Smithy, but also discuss RPGs in general, the influence that developers Square had on an otherwise very Nintendo-feeling game, and Katie will learn just how wrong she was when she said there wasn’t any platforming to worry about during the rose-tinted glasses segment.

So let’s dive in and take a listen, and reminisce about one of the most fun RPGs of its era, and the predecessor to an entire lineup of Nintendo titles that have followed in its footsteps!
