Super Mario RPG to include post-game boss rematches
Super Mario RPG will feature post-game boss rematches, Nintendo announced during today’s Nintendo Direct. This is a new feature for the remake in which players can take on bosses again after beating the game, though they’ll be tougher the second time around.
Here’s the latest on Super Mario RPG:
The Super NES game is back with updated graphics and new features. Mario and Bowser form an unprecedented alliance to take on a fearsome foe, and joining them are Princess Peach and original characters Mallow and Geno. In battle, time your button presses with Action Commands to increase damage dealt or decrease damage received. Now when you time your attacks perfectly, you can damage all enemies at once. Successful Action Commands will fill the Action Gauge that, when full, will unleash a three-character Triple Move. The Triple Move changes based on your current party, so try out different combos. Just like the original game, you’ll encounter bosses with colorful personalities in your adventure. This time, once you clear the game, you can challenge some of them again – but these powered-up bosses won’t be easy!
