Several less-than-impressive aspects of Super Mario 3D All-Stars left plenty of fans dissatisfied upon the game’s original release. Thanks to a recent update, however, a few more players might be able to happily join these long quests for Power Stars and Shine Sprites. The Version 1.1.0 update aims to give players a little bit more control over how they like to play Super Mario 3D All-Stars – players are able to invert camera control within the collection, and can now use a GameCube controller within Super Mario Sunshine. While the beloved controller unfortunately will not work with Super Mario 64 or Super Mario Galaxy, it’s about time that we at least get to use it properly in Super Mario Sunshine.

– Players can now invert the camera controls within all three individual titles.

– Super Mario Sunshine now supports the Nintendo GameCube controller (sold separately). Players can now play this title using the same controls as found in the original GameCube release.

– The Nintendo GameCube controller for Super Mario Sunshine is supported only in TV mode.

– You’ll need the GameCube Controller Adapter (sold separately) to use this controller with your Nintendo Switch system.

– The Nintendo Switch Lite system does not support this controller option.

– All button displays within Super Mario Sunshine will not reflect the Nintendo GameCube controller.

– Other general fixes have been applied to improve overall gameplay across all three titles
