Is this a remake of the classic SNES game? Yes. Yes, it is.

The Nintendo Direct held earlier today included a couple of welcome surprises for the fans watching at home. Among those announcements was the reveal of a remake of Super Mario RPG. This beloved title has been given a major graphical overhaul and is slated to be released on the Nintendo Switch on November 17.

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars first came out in 1996 on the Super NES. As you can safely assume, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars is a role-playing game that was a spin-off title developed by Square. This remake does not seem to involve Square Enix as far as we can tell.

Be sure to check out the announcement trailer and new screenshots for Super Mario RPG below.
