What is Super Mario RPG?

Here’s the official description from the Super Mario RPG Nintendo page:

Mario, Bowser, and Peach partner up to repair the wish-granting Star Road in this approachable role-playing adventure.

Team up with an oddball group of heroes to save Star Road and stop the troublemaking Smithy Gang. This colorful RPG has updated graphics and cinematics that add even more charm to the unexpected alliance between Mario, Bowser, Peach, and original characters Mallow and Geno. Enter (or revisit) this world of eccentric allies and offbeat enemies in an RPG for everyone.

Jump through a colorful world and give attacks some extra oomph in battle!

Explore the vibrant environments with your party and jump towards your next goal! Run into monsters to enter turn-based battles with your party of three. Press the button at the right time for a satisfying dose of extra damage or helpful guard.

How to Play Super Mario RPG Early on Nintendo Switch?

You can play Super Mario RPG early on Nintendo Switch, however it’s not as easy as it sounds. As you have to pay for the game using New Zealand dollars as that is the currency of New Zealand; you cannot use local currency. If you want to try, do the following:

  1. Set up your console to the New Zealand region.
  2. Go to the Nintendo website and change your account to New Zealand.
  3. Restart the e-shop on your console to apply the region change.
  4. Purchase the game on the NZ eShop using New Zealand dollars (ensure your bank allows this or use Gift Cards).
  5. Wait for the game’s release in New Zealand.
