Ahead of the Super Mario All-Stars release later this week, Nintendo has uploaded a new video demonstrating how exactly the new touchscreen controls work in Super Mario Galaxy when using a Switch in handheld mode or playing on a Switch Lite.

By the looks of it, firing and collecting star bits is now easier than ever. See for yourself below:

Touchscreen controls replace the television-only pointer and motion controls (as shown in the video above).

Of course, if you would rather not rely on motion controls to perform certain actions (like spinning Mario), you can always resort to good old-fashioned button controls. For more footage of 3D All-Stars, check out our video and screenshot round-up.
