Super Mario 3d All Stars

Well, here's a surprise - Nintendo has now added N64 wireless controller support to the Super Mario 3D All-Stars version of Super Mario 64.

In other words, you can now play the classic N64 Mario game, similar to how to back when the game was originally released on the N64. Here are the full patch notes for Version 1.1.1, courtesy of Nintendo's official support page:

Ver. 1.1.1 (Released November 3, 2021)

  • Super Mario 64 now supports the Nintendo Switch Online member exclusive Nintendo 64 Controller (sold separately). Players can now play this title using the same controls as found in the original Nintendo 64 release.

It follows on from 1.1.0 (released in November last year), which added GameCube controller support to Super Mario Sunshine. You can see more about this in our previous post.

So, there you go - you can now play the NSO version of Super Mario 64 with an original controller, and also the limited-time 3D All-Stars version that is no longer for sale.
