Super Mario RPG to be Released on the Wii U in Europe This Week

Super Mario RPG, one of the most beloved games to ever grace the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, is being released on the Wii U eShop this week in Europe. It will be released Thursday, December 24 — right in time for Christmas — and will cost €7.99.

While Super Mario RPG was released in North America in 1996, it never reached Europe until it came out on the Wii’s Virtual Console in 2008. While there has been no announcement as of yet whether or not the game will be coming to North America on the Wii U’s eShop, chances are that a North American release will closely follow the European release. Being one of the best Nintendo RPGs, and quite frankly games, ever, it would be hard to believe that Nintendo would release it in Europe and not North America, where the game is still considered a classic.

Stay tuned for future announcements regarding the title’s release in other territories!
