Super Mario RPG 2: the director of the original would like a sequel to the SNES game

Super Mario RPG was one of the most particular titles seen on Super Nintendo by Square Eni in and Nintendo in collaboration: it remained one of the most significant games of the 16-bit console in question but never had an official follow-up, so much so that even the director of the original would like to develop it, at this point.

Chihiro Fu Fuioka, the director of Super Mario RPG, has therefore expressed the desire to see a recovery of the title in the form of a new chapter, possibly, despite the fact that it is not at all simple, also given the fact of using a real icon like Mario.

Fuiioka has worked on numerous other titles in his career that began in the 80s, however, ranging from the role of designer, director, producer and above all composer, since a good part of his work concerns this role in video games. After the experience of Super Mario RPG, he founded the AlphaDream team and took care of the Mario & Luigi series, until he left the studio in 2015, however, a few years before the closure of this for bankruptcy.

In his long experience, however, the Mario RPG remains the job to which he is perhaps most related, having stated that he wanted to end his career with a Super Mario RPG 2 before retiring: “Yes, I would absolutely like to develop it”, he reported in an interview published by MinnMax
