Super Mario 3D All Stars is a 3-in-1 package of classic games including Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy. Gamers over the past three decades might have played these titles or might have missed out on them completely. Nevertheless, this package now exists and is available for Nintendo Switch fans to enjoy. Bafflingly though, this compilation of games is only available for a limited time (Seriously, how much more anti-consumer can you get than limiting the sale of your back catalog after bringing it back for modern gamers to enjoy?)
Super Mario 64 itself is the oldest game of the trio here. It originally released on Nintendo 64 way back in 1996 and was one of the most successful Mario games of all time. In 2004 we got an enhanced DS port and that went on to sell incredibly well too. The Super Mario 64 in the Super Mario 3D All Stars remake is the “Shindou” version of the game which refers to the updated Japanese re-release version of the title. Interestingly, it’s not the enhanced DS remake.
The control mechanics from more than two decades ago aren’t as fluid and responsive as modern day games...
The Switch version of Super Mario Galaxy is excellent and is worth the full price of the package alone.
Gamer, writer, self-proclaimed chemistry hobo. Always looking to make use of a good pun in the name of fun.
