Nintendo Adds N64 Controller Support to Super Mario 64 3D All-Star Version

Now, here’s the surprise-Nintendo has added support for the N64 wireless controller Super Mario 3D All Stars Version of Super Mario 64..

This means you can now play classic N64 Mario games in the same way that the game was first released on the N64. By courtesy of Nintendo’s official support page, the complete patch notes for version 1.1.1 are:

Ver. 1.1.1 (Released on November 3, 2021)

  • Super Mario 64 now supports the Nintendo 64 controller (sold separately) exclusively for Nintendo Switch Online members. Players can now play this title using the same controls as the original Nintendo 64 release.

This continues from 1.1.0 (released last November), which added support for the GameCube controller to Super Mario Sunshine. You can find out more about this in a previous post.

You can now play the NSO version of Super Mario 64 on your original controller. You can also play the 3D all-star version for a limited time, which is no longer sold.
