If you own a Wii or Wii U, you’ve got one of the best Club Nintendo Virtual Console rewards waiting for you this month. The new games came up today and one of them is Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. That name should make you pause in appreciation, because this game is legendary.
Super Mario RPG is notable because this SNES classic was made by Square. You know, back when Square was good and making classic games like Final Fantasy VI and Secret of Mana. Mario, Princess Toadstool and Bowser are doing their regular thing, when an attack hits and everyone goes flying. Mario goes to save the princess, joins up with a cloudy “tadpole” named Mallow and others, and eventually heads off to repair the destroyed star road. Trust me when I say it’s awesome.
All you need to get Super Mario RPG from Club Nintendo is 200 coins. Oh, and if you have a Wii U, then you’ll need a Wii Remote and its Classic Controller peripheral. Yeah, I guess this isn’t such a great deal if you don’t already have all the extras for the Wii U. But for the Wii, it’s a fantastic deal.
Oh, and there are other free Club Nintendo downloads available this month until June 2, 2013. You can get Maboshi’s Arcade for the Wii for 150 coins, 3D Classics Excitebike for the 3DS for 150 coins and Art Style: Aquia for the 3DS for 100 coins. Excitebike and Aquia are pretty good deals as well, so 3DS owners should look into one or both of those. You know, let Nintendo reward you for your loyalty with a fun classic or DSiWare adventure.
Seriously though, get Super Mario RPG if you have the controller needed to play it. That game is awesome.
