The original game for the GameCube launched in 2004, and it’s not only a stellar turn-based RPG, but is also one of the best-written and funniest games in the whole franchise. The remake has some updated visuals (though the original game still looks wonderful thanks to its timeless style), but it sure does pop in HD.

It definitely is building off a lot of the systems from Super Mario RPG (which is also getting a remake on Switch), but it has its own slapstick twist that gives it its own identity. The series hasn’t gone away, but more recent entries like The Origami King have been gradually moving away from the same traditional turn-based RPG mechanics of The Thousand Year Door and the original Nintendo 64 game.
