It may be too soon after Oddesy to ask this question but if Nintendo re-released the aforementioned games on a single cartridge for the Switch with the full HD treatment would you buy it?

I think if done properly in the way that Activision have done with the Crash and Spiro games Nintendo could be onto a winner.

Probably not. I love both games and am happy to just play the copies I already own.

That's partly my problem, I foolishly sold my copy of sunshine along with my game cube many years ago. Although I could still technically play it on the Wii a 2nd hand copy of Sunshine can be pretty expensive these days

Yes, yes I would.
Going a bit further than just remastering into HD, Mario 64 would benefit greatly from a camera revamp from the jumpy c-button controls to proper smooth analog control.

Yes I would. I haven't played Sunshine at all. As for Mario 64, both versions of that game that I've played show that it could do with a bit of a facelift and some better controls.

I’d buy it in a flash. Never gonna happen tho
Edit.
Even if it does. I think it will take a lot away from Mario 64. The controls were not great but it felt like part of the difficulty and so was the camera. I have the ds port and also the virtual console games but playing super Mario 64 with the controller just feels special to me and it’s one of the reasons I still have the Nintendo 64 hooked up.

Mario Sunshine goes for about $40 these days I think, at least where I live. I've had my copy for years though.

I imagine a Switch remake would cost about $60 anyway though.

I'll be honest I haven't looked for a while but last time I did the cheapest I could find it was around £30

That was just a quick browse of ebay, amazon and Facebook marketplace etc.

Also I'd need a game cube pad to add to the expense as well haha

I don't own Sunshine and I think 64 would benefit greatly from a remake in terms of improving the controls and graphics so yes, I'd absolutely buy such a compilation.

I love 64 and Sunshine (to a lesser extent) and I probably would, but I'm not frothing over the mouth for one. Honestly I'm content with just replaying them as is, even if 64 did age like cheese I'm still extremely used to playing it with those controls.

If they released them as VC for a tenner each I would probably buy both as I really enjoyed both these games, particularly Mario 64.

But if they rerelease them for forty or fifty quid each with fairly minor tweaks then I don’t think I’d bother. I still have both these games and the consoles to play them on. Even if both games were included for fifty quid I still wouldn’t be tempted.

Super Mario 64 would straight-up have to be remade instead of merely remastered, so that might make it worthy of a purchase. Unless they go super-conservative with it like the OOT3D/MM3D remakes which looked, sound, and felt like remasters, then no buy from me.

Exactly. They need to remake the game from the ground. I'm sure such a game would far outsell Crash n Sane Trilogy even though that also was a great game collection.

I'd have to hold out for a remake of SM64, not just a remaster. Sunshine doesn't need a lot of work, mostly just needs to have the horrible camera fixed. But yes, I'd buy this in a heartbeat.

Pretty sure it's not about to happen, though.

Remind yourself that overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer.

Unless it's something like a (50th?) Anniversary All-Stars collection that features all of Mario's best mainline games I don't think they should be bundled together. They have such a different feel from each other and they are classics enough to stand on their own. Super Mario 64 DS was re-released on the Nintendo DS, and if Super Mario Sunshine is ever considered to get another chance, it's more likely to happen through the "Wind Waker HD" treatment, or as a Gamecube download / Gamecube mini console pick, or an Anniversary collection with all of Mario's best mainline games.

I'm not against the idea of Mario bundles. Super Mario All-Stars (Super Mario Bros. 1-4) is still one of the best retro collections and I think Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 HD would make a proper set as well.

I’d probably buy it, mostly for Mario 64. However, I would rather have a Galaxy 1&2 HD remaster.

If nintendo would do something like this, it would probobly be SMB through World with the NSMBU engine and call it a day. Although, I would still love to see this. I've never played sunshine before.

Nice >:]

I do stupid stuff on youtube.com/mysticbros, so check it out if your bored or whatever.
Or don't, it's your time after all.

I'm honestly surprised that Sunshine has never seen rerelease. They've been rereleasing the NES/SNES games since the GBA era, and every generation since. Super Mario 64 saw release on the DS, Wii, and Wii U. Even Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 were rereleased on the Wii U eshop!

I may be in the minority, but Sunshine was my favorite 3D Mario before Odyssey. Yeah, the camera sucked, and some levels were more frustrating than fun, but the game felt like being on a tropical vacation. Those water effects still look amazing!
