Good 90%

One of the few RPGs actually worth playing on the system. Its got all of the Mario charm with a basic, but effective story, and a fun cast of characters to recruit and team up with.

Positive points
Simple, but fun story with likeable characters
Unique take on the traditional turn-based RPG formula
Excellent music and visuals
Great for beginners
Negative points
A bit on the easy side
