Super Mario 3D All-Stars receives a surprise update after almost a year
Last year, Super Mario 3D All-Stars launched for Nintendo Switch, bringing three of Mario s largest 3D games to the platform: Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxia. As expected, the result was a very fun package. It has been almost a year since the collection was updated, but tonight, Nintendo surprised fans with the launch of version 1.1.1. This update is quite smaller, but it should be welcome for some fans, since it makes Super Mario 64 compatible with the Retro Nintendo 64 controller recently released. Complete patch notes directly from Nintendo official website can be found below:
Super Mario 64 is now compatible with the exclusive Nintendo 64 controller for Nintendo Switch online members (sold separately). Players can now play this title using the same controls that are in the original Nintendo 64 version.
Interestingly, the previous update of the game also added compatibility with another controller; In that case, it was the Nintendo Gamecube controller for Super Mario Sunshine. With today s update, Nintendo Switch fanatics will now be able to use two of the three original drivers that worked with these games. For players who want to replicate the original experience as faithfully as possible, this should be welcome.
The Nintendo 64 controller is possibly one of the most controversial of all games. While the controller has many passionate fanatics, there are many people who hated it in 1996 and still hate it to this day. Undoubtedly, it is a bold design, and a whole new generation of players can decide how they feel about it thanks to the new switch release. The Retro Controller is only available for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers, and is currently exhausted, for those who have not yet managed to engage in one. However, the list of the controller establishes that they will be launched more in 2022.
