Super Mario 3D All-Stars (Switch; 9/18/20)

Optimized versions of 3D Mario games Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy are coming to Nintendo Switch in one package. In addition to having higher resolutions than their original versions, the games have been optimized for a smooth gameplay experience on Nintendo Switch. Super Mario 3D All-Stars also includes an in-game music-player mode to play the music and songs from all three games. Players can also listen to music on their Nintendo Switch systems when the screen is off. A limited production of Super Mario 3D All-Stars launches exclusively for the Nintendo Switch family of systems on Sept. 18 and will be available until approximately March 31, 2021.
No Galaxy 2, alas.

It's the only Mario game I've owned and never finished. It was in those dark days when I wasn't very diligent about completing games.

And I haven't had the chance, since I gave my copy to a relative. For the past few years, I've come close to buying it again, but I couldn't shake the feeling that some kind of remastering or revisiting was on the way. And hey, here it is! I'm curious how it'll play without analog triggers. (Maybe that's in this morning's Direct; I haven't watched it yet.)

I am a huge Mario fan, but I have never cared for those three games.

That announced "expiration date" for sale of the game is really weird. I don't think I have ever seen that before, especially for a digital release. At least I know that I won't need to wait for a sale - - at least not after March 10th.

It is! I get maybe the physical release being a limited run, but I can't wrap my head around making the digital version only available for a few months.

Nintendo is going all out for this. I wouldn't mind having a pair, but they will most likely sell out very quickly.

Re: Super Mario 3D All-Stars (Switch; 9/18/20)

I’m happy to get the three games and I’ll definitely buy this. I don’t quite get why they omitted Super Mario Galaxy 2 though.

At first I thought maybe they’d do a 3D All-Stars Volume Two or something, but that seems unlikely due to the separate release of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury.

Not really sure what else they’d pair with Super Mario Galaxy 2. Unless they put it with Super Mario 3D Land.

People are speculating that after the limited run, they will be sold individually. That way Nintendo can have a special release now, and 3 items for the eShop later, probably at $20+ each.

$$$

How many people are going to buy this instantly instead of waiting for a sale?

I'm tempted if only because my son has been on a gigantic Mario kick and he's been begging me to setup the Wii so he can play Galaxy.

I wonder how well Mario 64 holds up.

I'm curious too. All I remember from that one is the frustration of climbing the inside of the clock tower.

I'm in for some Mario Sunshine, I think. I recall enjoying that one a lot, it might be worth another play-through.

Re: Super Mario 3D All-Stars (Switch; 9/18/20)

I love Super Mario 64 personally. One of my favorite games of all time. I grew up with it so maybe partly it’s nostalgic, but I think it’s a very good game either way, and also pretty groundbreaking.

I wonder if there’s any chance of getting the DS content, which allowed you to play as more characters (Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, and Wario), and also added more stars to collect plus some mini games.

The collection is being issued as a physical release as well as Digital. I'm tempted to buy it that way for resale potential.

I’m definitely day one for a physical copy. I have been itching to revisit Sunshine for a long time now. However, I will not be completing the blue coin stuff. That was insane.

I played Galaxy, but never finished it. Never really got around to 64 or Sunshine, but I've wanted to, and this is a good reason to buy in.

It looks like people that have seen the packaging are saying it requires joy cons (even with the Switch lite) so if that's the case then motion controls required and no pro controller support. That would be hugely disappointing.

Ohh, glad you pointed that out. That will be a deal breaker for me, if true. Bummer.

Hmm, I had heard they even made motion controls optional for Galaxy. That will be hugely disappointing since I love the Pro Controller. I still preordered, but I don't like that information.

I preordered it, but I'm not happy about not being able to use my pro controller with it.

Mandatory motion controls would be a big disappointment. Would this apply to all of the included games?

Just to clarify my post was that this is what people are saying on the internet who claim to have seen the packaging. It could be bullshit so I wouldn't get to worked up until we hear for sure. At the least pro controller support would have to be in there for the first 2 games or that would mean they added motion controls to those games which would be more work than just removing the motion controls from Galaxy.

I have to think there will be Pro Controller support. Seems weird Nintendo wouldn’t allow for that. Super Mario Galaxy was made with motion controls in mind, but the other two weren’t.

Yeah, I'm sure 64 and Sunshine have standard controls (pro controller) and Galaxy kept the motion (joy cons).

Not sure how I feel about this. I have the N64, GCN & Wii hooked up and could easily play these already. This would be purely for the visual upgrades for me.
