Dragon Quest III HD-2D remake development

Famitsu recently spoke with Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii, and received a brief status update on the HD-2D remake of Dragon Quest III.

Speaking with the publication, Horii said that the project’s development is progressing steadily. He’s also providing advice to the team seeing as how he worked on the original game way back in the day.

Starting today, Nintendo Switch Online members can get their hands on user icons based on Super Mario RPG. This comes as the SNES remake launches around the world.

Members can spend their Platinum Points on designs for characters, backgrounds, and frames. Each one requires My Nintendo points. Characters are 10 Platinum Points each while backgrounds and frames are 5 a piece.

Super Mario RPG Wario, Three Musketeers

Jiro Mifune, who was one of the developers on Super Mario RPG when it originally came out on the SNES, has revealed a bunch of sketches that were created at the time including a concept for Three Musketeers, Wario, and much more.

Mifune wrote on social media that the project was made by staff in their early twenties. He said that Square “was a development style in which game planning and design ideas were shared among the entire staff,” suggesting that many people were able to contribute.

100 super jumps Super Mario RPG

As covered in our Super Mario RPG 100 percent completion guide, fully finishing the game takes a long time – which also involves earning 100 Super Jumps.

When you make it to Monstro Town, you’ll find an NPC who tracks your Super Jump record. If your record is over 30, you’ll receive the Attack Scarf accessory. If your record is maxed-out (100), however, you’ll receive the Super Suit accessory. This piece of gear drastically increases its user’s stats, so it helps a ton against this game’s boss rematches. Today, we’ll be going over some tips and tricks on racking up 100 Super Jumps. Get ready for a challenge!

super mario rpg 100 percent

If you’re looking to 100 percent complete Super Mario RPG, the game makes that kind of tough in a few particular ways. The good news is that the game is a little bit on the short side. If you’re playing through the game for the first time, it shouldn’t take you any more than around 15 hours to beat. That being said, prepare for a challenge when it comes to completion.

We have the full rundown below. Just be aware that this guide contains some spoilers before proceeding.

Super Mario RPG Culex

Culex, alongside Mallow and Geno, is one of the more popular characters in Super Mario RPG. In addition to being a powerful opponent, he is a living reference to Final Fantasy. He’s also one of the tougher bosses in Super Mario RPG, and encountering him requires a little bit of setup beforehand. We’ve put together a guide on how to find Culex, how to set up your party prior to battle, and how to eventually defeat him to receive the exclusive Quartz Charm accessory.

Super Mario RPG 3 Musty Fears

Super Mario RPG doesn’t have too many side quests, but one that it does have is the 3 Musty Fears side quest in Monstro Town. One of the houses there contains nothing but a bed – turn the mushroom light off and hop into the bed to start this quest. Three undead characters will each place an invisible flag somewhere around the world, and it’s your job to find that flag based on the hints they give. If you don’t feel like figuring it out yourself, we’ve put together a brief list of all three flag locations and the reward you’ll receive for finding them all.

Super Mario RPG Frog Coin farming

We’ve come up with a fool-proof Frog Coin farming method in Super Mario RPG that’s easy to perform and doesn’t require much focus at all. 

If you’re looking for a fast way to increase coins, this should come in handy. Technically, you could take the Midas River course over and over again or try playing a different sort of minigame to rack up Frog Coins. These methods tend to be rather slow, however, and require a good deal of focus to successfully complete. 

Super Mario RPG bug

Nintendo has provided notification regarding a bug in Super Mario RPG that can block progression if encountered.

The bug may appear following the Paratroopa event in Monstro Town. You’ll know something is wrong if the the Paratroopas don’t appear in Land’s End. The good news is that Nintendo has shared a workaround, which simply involves going to the Mushroom Kingdom and returning to Land’s End again.
