“Super Mario RPG” finally gets virtual console release in Europe on Wii U
The classic Super Nintendo game, “Super Mario RPG”, will finally get its long anticipated release on the virtual console later this week… in Europe.
The news comes from EuroGamer, who are happy as heck to get this game in their neck of the woods while this continent has to wait and see. “Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars” was originally released in North America and Japan in 1996, but was never released in Europe until the original Wii Virtual Console released it in 2008. As for Americans, we are still waiting on word from Nintendo if the title will be coming to our systems as well. The game is still available for the Wii on their virtual console, but until then, we must hold our breath and pray to the Mario gods.
On a similar note, earlier this month, Nintendo announced several new Mii Fighter costumes for “Super Smash Bros.” for Wii U and 3DS, which included an outfit for one of Super Mario RPG’s signature characters, Geno.
Super Mario RPG will launch for download on Thursday, December 24, and will cost €7.99.
