Super Mario RPG to Japanese VC

Super Mario RPG
It seems that the Japanese Virtual Console is getting another classic game before we do. Does that mean there is a chance for this to be released here any time soon? What many people don’t know is that Super Mario RPG has a dark history, and it all has to do with Square. Since Nintendo licensed the game to Square to develop, Square actually wrote up the story and owns a majority of the rights. Mostly the characters, story, and music in the game that have nothing to do with the Mario franchise. However, since it is seeing a release on the VC in Japan, it looks like Nintendo and Square might have finally come to a deal. Here’s hoping that we might actually see the title on our shores sometime soon.
