Super Mario RPG was a joint project of Shigeru Miyamoto (the creator of Nintendo's well-known mascot Mario) and Squaresoft, best known for the highly acclaimed Final Fantasy series. The controls and style of gameplay will be very familiar to anyone who has played Squaresoft's other RPG's. The game includes many cameos from other series-Link from the Legend of Zelda, Samus Aran from Metroid, and an extremely hard-to-find secret boss battle with a demon from Final Fantasy. It is definitely worth playing for fans of Mario or console RPG's.
