Super Mario RPG - Bundt by bassoonhero Super Mario RPG - Bundt by bassoonhero
Dear Nintendo,

PLEASE MAKE SUPER MARIO RPG 2!!! You guys keep talking about working closely with third-party companies, so please get together with Square-Enix and bang out a glorious Wii-U sequel and/or 3DS remake of the original. You have already granted my wish for a Luigi's Mansion sequel which will seriously never be forgotten, but there is another beyond excellent game of yours that has needed to be revisited for over 15 years. With the Paper Mario series now making its way to the 3DS, I would be overjoyed to see Super Mario RPG come back and take over as the console "Mario RPG" experience. To entice you to make this game, I have baked you a plush cake.

Best Wishes,
Michael W.

JENNA: *Poke, poke, poke!*
MICHAEL: Ouch, OUCH! Vat are you doing?!
JENNA: Chef Michael! The cake's MOVING!
MICHAEL: Vas?! Ist NOT moving! Back to verk!
JENNA: I KNOW it was moving!

*Ahem* We've made the most AMAZING cake! You won't believe it!!

This plush is close to 3 ft. tall of pure awesome, and was completely inspired by Rio McCarthy's own amazing Super Mario RPG Bundt cake [link]

Our plush took quite a few months of work for both Jenna and I to complete, and it was made for my older brother Steven's 25th birthday. My brother got me into video games when I was very young, and I owe him quite a bit for guiding my interests and introducing me to many of the series, characters, and companies that I've grown up to love so very much. Thank you wonderful brother, and happiest of birthdays!

JENNA: *Poke, poke, poke!*
MICHAEL: Ouch, OUCH! Now vat?
JENNA: Chef Michael! The cake's MOVING!
MICHAEL: Talk no more of zees!
JENNA: No! Really, truly. Why would I lie?
MICHAEL: Because you are…IDIOT! Zee! It IS NOT moving!
BOTH: … Huh?!
MICHAEL: Zee cake's alive! RUN!!
JENNA: See? I was RIGHT!

The pattern for this plush was drawn up completely by me, and as always was cut, sewn, and crafted together by both Jenna and I. Each layer is detachable and held together by velcro, and the bottom part, Rasberry, looks pretty cool on its own with all the colored poms we put on it. I'll put up some more pictures on my flickr sometime soon. Also, if ANYONE knows what the #$*! that blue thing is on Raspberry's side in concept art/sprite art ([link] [link]), I'll be forever grateful!

Also!  You wanted to know what the blue thing is near the bottom of Bundt, right?  I think it's a piece of candy?

Maybe this image will help:…

Ahaha, I see!  :D

This is really great, by the way!  And yeah, I so wish Nintendo would give us another Mario RPG.  We need Mallow and Geno back.  :nod:

I have to agree with you immensely.
We need a Super Mario Rpg 2!! I was lucky to get an emulator on my phone so I could play Super Mario RPG!
Also, we need Mallow and Geno back... like now.

By the way, you did a lovely job!!

I'd love to see them buy the characters, work with Square to make another game, or even just remake the original (I'd take anything at this point). Looking past Mallow and Geno (who are both incredible), there were SO MANY other new characters in this game introduced to the Mario world that have never been revisited, most likely due to them all being owned by Square. Frogfucius, Booster, Smithy, Croco, Belome, Mack, Jonathan Jones, Valentina and Dodo, Yaridovich, the Axem Rangers, etc. etc. etc. etc... Such a shame. 

If you haven't already, consider purchasing the game on the Wii Virtual Console to show support for the title! If it ever gets re-released on the Wii U Virtual Console I know I'll snag it again the second it goes up. And for anyone reading this, give Nintendo direct feedback via Club Nintendo surveys (additional comments section) or politely emailing them to let them know there is still interest in this game!

VERY cool- you guys did amazing work. Bundt/the whole Booster wedding debacle was one of my favorite parts. :)

Really appreciate that, thanks! :D It's one of my favorite parts too, the whole game is really incredibly funny.
