Game Description

Saturday Morning RPG is an episodic JRPG set in world heavily inspired by 1980s Saturday morning cartoons and pop culture. Players take the role of Martin "Marty" Michael Hall, an average high-school student who has just been granted an incredible power - a power that ultimately leads him to attract the ire of the world's most notorious villain, Commander Hood! Saturday Morning RPG features a full soundtrack by legendary composer Vince DiCola (Transformers: The Animated Movie, Rocky IV) and his composing partner, Kenny Meriedeth (contributor for DuckTales, Power Rangers, X-Men, and others).

Saturday Morning RPG Review by Phillip Pinyan

Saturday Morning RPG (Switch) Review via NintendoWorldReport

Saturday Morning RPG has a lot to like. The presentation is top notch, the gameplay is excellent, and the vast amount of ‘80s references sprinkled throughout the episodes are fun, promoting a positive vibe. I wish the world had a bit more depth, and the difficulty spikes get annoying fast. But with Saturday Morning RPG, the positives end up outweighing the negatives.

Despite its repetitive qualities, Saturday Morning RPG did keep me entertained for quite a few hours.

Review: Saturday Morning RPG (Nintendo Switch) via Digitally Downloaded

The heavy reliance on nostalgia does wear thin and lose its comedic appeal, and from there you're only left with a workable, but very limited, turn based combat system, and not much more.

While the game is the same on, say, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, the Switch version does have the advantage of allowing you to play the game at home or on the go, and you can also use the touchscreen to play the game when in Portable or Tabletop mode. So if you're looking for a new way to play Saturday Morning RPG, or if you still haven't played the game before, then this is definitely the version you can should try today!

Saturday Morning RPG (Nintendo Switch) Review via Cubed3

Although Saturday Morning RPG certainly captures the feelings of playing a Saturday morning cartoon, that quality may very well be its downfall. The episodic format, coupled with the fairly involved battle system, make for a breath of fresh air in the early game, but they quickly become repetitive and rather dull, much like a typical '80s cartoon. The aesthetic is plenty pleasant and the writing has its moments of charm, but Saturday Morning RPG is ultimately a JRPG not meant to be played powered through. In small bursts, its combat and episodic story structure might shine, but they fall apart quite hastily when played all at once. It's best to take each episode a week at a time, like a proper Saturday morning cartoon.

I feel like I’m just barely outside the age range to really love this game. Like my oldest brothers would find this incredibly charming and nostalgic.

This one is fun, even more so if you lived through the 80s. Great retro-inspired RPG with some fun ideas.
