The Besties: Super Mario RPG’s Super Faithful Remake (feat. Felicia Day)

An illustration of a white trophy with four black figures. One is lifting the bottom of the trophy, another is waving from the top, another is climbing the handle, and the last figure is standing next to it with its arms outstretched. The background is gold. There is a light yellow light shining out from the trophy. Above it says, “The Besties” in black serif font with an orange laurel on either side.

Nearly 30 years ago, Nintendo and Square teamed up for one of the wildest collabs in gaming history: A turn-based RPG adventure featuring everyone’s favorite blue collar jumping man. How well does the remake, now on Nintendo Switch, fare? Well, that’s what we’re talking about today with our pal, Felicia Day.
