In celebration of Super Mario’s 35th anniversary, Nintendo will launch a collection of the plumber’s finest. These are the 3D games found on the Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection for the Switch.
Super Mario 3D All-Stars for the Switch will be out in just a few days. The limited release of the game is keeping people anxious about whether or not they are getting a copy. To make matters worse, Nintendo just released an overview trailer for the game, showcasing all of the new features and improvements for the title.
All the new stuff
Super Mario 64 was made for the Nintendo 64. Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy were for the Gamecube and Wii, respectively. Compared to what the Switch is capable of, these consoles had limited power. Players had initially thought that there wouldn’t be any major improvements on the re-releases.
However, the new overview trailer suggests otherwise.
Super Mario 64 will feature Joy-Con controls that have rumble functionalities. Visual-wise, the game will have an improved resolution of 720p, whether docked or portable. The other two titles will have the same improvements, but their docked visuals will run at 1080p.
More excitingly, the game will feature a music player. This will feature over 170 songs from the three games. It’s something that fans should really look forward to.
Is it worth it?
For any Super Mario fan, the collection will be worth it. The game is priced as an AAA-game despite having minor changes. However, there are still hours upon hours of fun in the collection.
These classic games have stood the test of time. Fans have been longing for the remakes for a while now, and it’s good that Nintendo finally delivered. With these improvements, it’s likely that fans will be happier with the final output of the game and its new features.
Due to its limited availability, orders for the game are already running out. Players should make their pre-orders soon before it runs out. Some scalpers are going to want to take advantage of the game’s limited availability to sell the game for a profit.
Super Mario 3D All-Stars launches this Sept. 18 for the Nintendo Switch. The game is going to be available digitally and physically, but it will only be available up until March next year. Copies are running out fast, so fans of this franchise should get their copies as soon as possible.
