After much anticipation and many rumors, Nintendo finally announced Super Mario 3D All-Stars in a new Nintendo Direct dedicated Mario’s 35th anniversary. The collection is out on September 18th for Nintendo Switch and includes three classic 3D Mario titles – Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy. Check them out below.
Though the graphics for each title haven’t undergone a huge revamp from the looks of it, each game runs at a higher resolution and includes Joy-Con support. Super Mario Sunshine also benefits from a 16:9 aspect ratio. If that weren’t enough, all of the official soundtracks for each game are also included.
Notably, however, Nintendo have announced that both the digital and physical releases of Super Mario 3D All-Stars will be available only up until March 2021, so if you want this collection in your library, you’re going to have to get it before that.
Having all three of these games in one place on Switch, even with the omission of Super Mario Galaxy 2, is a big deal. Not only does it open the door for other potential Nintendo classics (like, say, Metroid Prime) but also offers some of the best platforming in history, that too on the go. Stay tuned for more details on the collection in the coming weeks.
