Super Mario Sunshine on Switch Receives New Update Allowing GameCube Controller Support

Super Mario Sunshine on the 3D All Stars collection for Switch is now compatible with the game's original GameCube controller.

If you’re a GameCube controller purist (of which I know that crowd is vast) then Nintendo’s latest update for Super Mario 3D All-Stars is going to please you.

Nintendo pushed out a new patch for the Super Mario 3D collection which released earlier this year and with it has come one major new addition for Super Mario Sunshine in particular. Assuming you have a GameCube controller adapter for the Switch, Super Mario Sunshine will now be playable with the game allowing for the fullest level of nostalgia to be tapped into. This feature is notably (and obviously) only available when utilizing the Switch in its docked form while hooked up to a television. That also means that you cannot do this action via the Nintendo Switch Lite.

As for the other big change that has come through with this 1.1.0 version update, all three games in Super Mario 3D All-Stars are now able to have their cameras inversed. If you’re someone who likes to play games in this (wrong) manner, then your time has now come.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars is available now on Switch if you’re looking to snag it for yourself. While it might not be the year’s most unique game, our reviewer Sam Woods perhaps put it best by saying, “The fact that in 2020, we can play three of Nintendo and Mario’s best titles in one handy collection, both at home and on the go, is wonderful.”
