Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

2 of 11

Originally released: 1996
Price: £5.49

Co-developed by Final Fantasy creator Squaresoft – known as Square Enix these days – Super Mario RPG arrived relatively late in the life of the SNES and never received a UK release, making it especially interesting for British players.

It combines rendered visuals with RPG action and Mario’s unmistakeable charm, resulting in a game that in its original cartridge format has risen in value in recent years. Thankfully, the Virtual Console release means you can purchase and enjoy this stunning release relatively cheaply.
