Super Mario 64 may be available as part of the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, but anyone who purchased a new Switch N64 controller from Nintendo is now available in the Super Mario 3D All-Star version.

Using the N64 controller on the Super Mario 3D All-Stars Super Mario 64 is a game Version 1.1.1 update, This is currently available. This allows the player to “play this title using the same controls as on the original Nintendo 64 release.”

With Super Mario Sunshine now playable on the GameCube controller, Super Mario 3D All Stars isn’t the first to add support for the N64 controller to one of the games.

Nintendo has also added support for Nintendo Labo for games such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, so it tends to add new ways to play some of its older titles.
