If you don’t believe Mario’s finest hour in the RPG genre was his original effort (Super Mario RPG, coming to Switch November 17), then you believe it was Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, originally released for the Gamecube in 2004 — and never again. Most gamers consider this to be the best title in the Paper Mario series, and it’s become nearly impossible to find an affordable copy. But have no fear….an HD remaster has finally been announced for next year!

Way before Mario went flat as paper, he embarked on his very first RPG adventure as a fully rendered 3D sprite (it was “in” at the time). The Mario universe had never been used for an RPG before 1996, but Nintendo had a secret weapon to make sure they didn’t screw up their first try: a partnership with Squaresoft, the kings of the RPG genre. Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars was released on the Super NES that May.

Months ago, Nintendo announced they would be selling the Special Edition of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 exclusively on their website. It marked a change from what they had done with Xenoblade Chronicles 2, whose Special Edition was widely available at retailers nationwide. However, I seem to remember that Special Edition sitting on the Target shelf for quite a while, and that probably motivated Nintendo to scale back their release plans this time.

Delays for video games are so common that when we heard the date had been changed for the release of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, we figured that meant it’d be coming out much later than its originally announced September date.

The first thing you notice about Xenotheria, the card-combat RPG currently running its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, is that it takes place on a desert planet and all the characters are fish people. You’d think they wouldn’t survive very long, but they’re all wearing elaborate suits which possibly keep them hydrated. Anyway, the game’s campaign is in its last few days and has successfully reached its $25,000 goal.
