Super Mario 3D All-Stars Brings 3 Classic Mario Games to Nintendo Switch

Super Mario 3D All-Stars bundles three classic Super Mario games in one package, but it won't be around forever.

Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy are headed to Nintendo Switch in the Super Mario 3D All-Stars Collection, which releases September 18 for $59.99. The 3D All-Stars Collection is a limited physical and digital release that Nintendo says will only be available until March 31, 2021.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars Collection is part of Nintendo’s celebration of Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary, though it doesn’t come as a total surprise. We reported on Video Game Chronicles' initial rumor of the collection earlier in the year.

The 3D All-Stars Collection bundles all three games into one package, with a handful of improvements for each. 

Super Mario 64 gets improved visuals. Super Mario Sunshine on Switch has 16:9 ratio support, improved resolution, and HD Rumble (not on Switch Lite though). And Super Mario Galaxy has improved resolutions and motion control for the Joy-Con to replicate the original’s Wii-mote motion controls.

The collection also has a Music Player, packing in 175 songs in total from across the three included games. And it's usable even with the screen off.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars releases September 18 for Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite. Pre-orders for the physical edition are open now, but it's worth repeating that both the physical and digital versions are only available until March 31, 2021. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Super Mario 3D All-Stars news as it develops.
