Way back in the day, Yoshihiko Maekawa worked on Super Mario RPG. 17 years later, he’s now with AlphaDream and is still making Mario RPG games through the Mario & Luigi series.

Recently, Maekawa took a moment to reflect on his past work while speaking Kotaku. Maekawa was asked if he has any interest revisiting the world of Super Mario RPG. His answer was pretty clear:

“Actually, I don’t feel like I want to return to that world and use those characters in another game. I feel like I was able to accomplish what I wanted to with that world and those characters and the gameplay ideas that came out of those, and now I mostly feel like I want to make something different.”

Question for you all: would you like to see Nintendo return to Super Mario RPG one day?
