The Game

You will need a Super Nintendo emulator to play Super Mario RPG. You can find one on my emulators page. If you need assistance with any of the emulators offered on my site, check out my emulation help subsite: Video Game Emulation for Newbies.

ROM Hacks

A variety of hacks that make the original Super Mario RPG harder, fix bugs, funny, or provide a whole new experience!

What is “Pre-patched” and “Patch”? ROM hackers release their works as patches. In order to experience their hacks, you must apply their patch to the original game. With the “Pre-patched” download, I've saved you the trouble and patched the game for you. But if you insist on patching the game yourself, you can download just the patch with the “Patch” download. I have patching instructions in my patching guide.

Super Mario RPG: Reworked Text

Super NintendoSuper Mario RPG: Reworked Text

Super Mario RPG's text is full of small translation errors, typos, and out-of-nowhere capitalization. This hack corrects all such errors. Corrections include:

  • Mistranslated monster names fixed (Goby is now Cheep Cheep, Shy Away is now Beezo, etc.)
  • Psychopath quotes which were originally Japanese pop culture references have been replaced with American pop culture references.
  • Final Fantasy references lost/removed in translation have been restored. (along with a few extra added)
  • Typos and unnecessary capitalizations fixed.
  • Various phrases (most notably cringe-inducing puns) are rewritten from scratch. (”It’s a CHAIN reaction?” That’s not funny, that’s just embarrassing.)
  • Mistranslated item names (plus a certain location’s name) have been corrected.

This hack shows off what you can do with the statistical and gameplay (battle system-wise) aspects of the game mostly. But yet, it also shows what you can do in terms of attack animations and other things as well. Here are some of its features:

  • Characters can go level up to Level 50.
  • Enemies: All battle scripts and stats changed.
  • Characters: All stats changed around, spells changes.
  • New enemies and enemy name changes.
  • Well-balanced difficulty curve.
  • Timing for Weapons, defense, and spells changed.
  • A few new attacks and spells.
  • Some new items and equipment.
  • Solves problems with some enemies/bosses with multiple attacks (i.e. Enemies attacking after characters have died, leads to a bug where enemy jumps offscreen and attacks nothing, only to come back some minutes later).
  • Balance out stats between characters and increase HP stat boosts.
  • Improved certain boss and enemy tactics as well as stats to make a little tougher/more balanced.
  • Improved enemy evasion for most enemies.
  • Balanced FP cost and all-targeting attacks.
  • Lessened overall EXP gain to compensate for Lucky Jewel, Lucky! Bonus, and the special Hammer.
  • Balanced stat-boosting items.
