Super Mario RPG is out now, and it packs oddball characters, a charming story, and some flashy battles into one experience. That last bit is what this article is all about!
To address the Wiggler in the room, Nintendo assumes you’re completely new to this game and maybe even RPGs in general. However, the genre veterans out there may still want to stick around for some more advanced tips later in the article.
