Superstar Saga is SMR2

I thought Paper Mario 64 had more in common with Super Mario RPG than Superstar Saga? Think that game literally started as Super Mario RPG 2. 

They technically take place in the same Galaxy. Galaxy shows us the Mario universe exists in Andromeda Galaxy, and M&L Paper Jam shows us that Paper Mario's world exists inside of a book found within M&L, so in a way they are both successors to SMRPG.

No way this is true...but it would be one of the best comeback announcements of all time...The only games that could top it if they were to be announced would be Chrono Trigger and Earthbound.

So, on a scale of screaming like Pierce Brosnan and having your head explode, how would you react if all three of those games had modern day sequels released in the same year?


I don't buy it for a second. Super Mario RPG is better than every Paper Mario game and every Mario and Luigi story game by far. I dunno about modern Square unless Aquire (Octopath) were the ones doing the heavy lifting were making it.

Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

if it's not by Square, I would be interested.

Don't play with me like this!!! I dont know if I'll be able to handle this!! T_T

Square Enix holds their games ransom, because they know if they hold out long enough, Nintendo will bend over and do it. They've been doing that since the Wii/DS age. They dont do that SONY. All those SE games that Nintendo published, if they PS games, SE would have published them promptly.  

I'm not really in the mood to argue over publishing and who does what in terms of publishing but yes compared to where Nintendo and Square were and where they are now their relationship is much better. At least Nintendo gets Square Enix games now. And when I say Square Enix I'm mostly talking about Square. Enix and Nintendo retained and still have a great relationship in terms of software releases from the NES to the Switch. The first Dragon Quest game was published by Nintendo in the US, doesn't mean that meant Nintendo and Enix were in a rocky relationship far from it. It had to do more with understanding the market.

On Nintendo Switch, the Dragon Quest 1-3 remasters, FFCC, FFVII, VIII, IX, FFX-X2HD, XII, Collection of Saga, Romancing Saga II, FFXV Pocket, World of FF Maxima etc. are all published by Square Enix. 

There are reasons why I feel Nintendo chooses to publish some SE's games outside the US now. But that would only be speculation. The fact of the matter is that compared to the late 90's, things are much better and could facilitate more collaboration between Nintendo and SE. I know it's kind of wishful thinking as I feel some of SE's divisions feel they've outgrown this kind of work, but hey we can dream. 

I wasnt referencing 90's relationship btw, just se's own reluctant to publish their own nintendo games (excluding the ports of course)

Wait.... Tetsuya Nomura did hint at one of his projects coming to switch. Could he be hinting at this?....................... gawd I hope not.

Super Mario RPG I.9: Luigi: The Seeker Of Darkness By Sleep incoming 

Your sword did not cut deep enough

Even if it ends up being true (which I HIGHLY DOUBT), I would be kinda half expecting Nomura to be the head of the project .... Let's just say I wouldn't be please with it.
