Nintendo has been slowly adding new games to the Wii U's Virtual Console service, and even if not everything has been accounted for yet (seriously, where's Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, Nintendo?), we can add one more classic RPG to their roster of available titles. Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Mario's first foray into the world of role-playing games and precursor to beloved series such as Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi, will be coming to North America's Wii U Virtual Console tomorrow for $7.99 USD. You can learn more at Nintendo's website.

Recover the seven stars and repair Star Road in this original Mario RPG!

A mysterious enemy named Smithy has appeared, forcing Mario and Bowser to fight as allies. Journey across a wide variety of locations and tackle a mixture of obstacles that will require both timing and strategy to overcome. Gain experience, grow more powerful, and meet new characters to use their abilities in taking down Smithy and his gang!

I'll definitely be taking this opportunity to revisit this Nintendo/Squaresoft classic. And as long as we're on the subject, do you have a favorite Mario RPG? Sound off on our forums, and stay tuned to RPGFan for all your RPG news.
